Labels


There are some people who when are in relationships, don't like any sort of label to define them. They don't want to be somebodies girlfriend, somebodies boyfriend, husband, wife and even significant other. I never understood this.


For me, I was always the hopeless romantic. I loved being somebodies boyfriend. Assuming that the other person wanted to be in a relationship, I was in. I loved defining a relationship. Are we dating? Are we exclusive? Am I your boyfriend? Are you my girlfriend? I think that these are questions that should be answered. Now not everyone is going to agree with this. In fact I know several people who believe just the opposite. They don't want any label defining who they are. I don't get it. And I'm not going to start. Because I've never believed that way of thinking. I think that the more labels you put on a relationship, the better. That way, everything is clear and understood. But then what about love? Is love considered a label? Can you put a label on love? Or should you? Is that why its called falling in love? Because you fall into a category? Because love is in fact a label. Love is the term for something when you feel absolutely overcome with happy emotion. I guess that's a good way to put it. So in that case....when you fall in love, you fall into a label. You become labeled "in love". But I think that anyone who is willing to say that they are in love, they should be accepting to labels. To being somebodies something. I am in fact somebodies husband. I love being a husband. I love having the ring on my finger and having a marriage certificate. Which when you think about it, is a label.


I like labels. I think labels are a good thing. That way, you know where you stand. You know who you are and you know what direction you're heading. And the best part is, it has nothing to do with how you act as a human being and doesn't limit your potential for any opportunities that present themselves. I like labels, but not everyone does and that's OK. That's just the way it should be ya see.
