The short answer – for me – is no.
I think falling in love is an organic, beautiful thing that happens to us when we least expect it rather than something we can plan on.
I only bring this up because I’m watching “The Bachelors” (I love reality TV, bless my heart) and “I can see myself falling in love with you” seems to be the catch phrase peppered heavily throughout every episode.
I understand it as a “I’m going to keep my heart safe and I won’t lay my cards out on the line, so I’ll say I can see myself (potentially) falling for you instead of fully committing to how I feel”. I get that. It’s important to make careful, measured decisions.
But I truly believe Love decides for itself. I think true, lasting, real love isn’t something you can control. I also don’t think you can love someone “a little bit”. I think you’re either all in…or you’re not in love.
And that’s totally OK. You don’t have to be in love and there’s courage and integrity in being honest and saying “No. I don’t feel the same way” (ok, be more tactful and compassionate of course) to someone who expresses their love for you. From my experience it’s so much better to be honest when you’re in a relationship.
And that’s my 2 cents on that particular phrase. Lol. Follow me for more life advice 😉
