There is something that girls really have to understand about a boy in love. I don't think they really understand how a boy is when he is really in love, and what they are like when they are out of it. So, I'm going to have to explain it to you.
I wrote a blog once saying that a boy or a man in love is a lot like a boy with a teddybear. The parents give him a little teddybear to play with and keep him company while they are away, and doing their thing. Overtime, he grows accustomed to this teddybear and starts to love it. Take it everywhere he goes, take it into bed, and all that good stuff.
He is basically very attached to this teddybear. He promises the teddybear that as long as she or he is his best friend, he will never let him go. The army would have to come and drag the teddybear away from him. So sweet, isn't it? Never is the child prepared for the day when the security teddybear actually turns up missing, or the love starts to wane.
When the teddybear, his best friend, turns up missing, he either starts to cry, or starts to feel a little void in his heart. Whatever he does, it means he misses his dear little teddybear. You can tell that he loves the thing by the way that he either continuously asks for this bear or tries to hold on to what memory he has with it. It's at this time he has a lot of options on what he needs to do. He can either:
1)Buy a new teddybear
2)Wait for this teddybear to come back
3)He can grow up and move on without it. It's all depending on his patience.
So, imagine the scenario where the teddybear actually comes back. In time, he starts to either use it a little bit or never uses it at all. Either way, his love has waned for the teddybear. By this time, the boy has moved on and forgotten a bit about the teddybear, offering to donate the friend to someone else who needs him or put him on the shelf.
He may be secure, but imagine how sad the teddybear must feel to know that the boy has moved on and doesn't need him anymore?
That is the illustration of love blooming with a boy (and a girl) and love on its way to fizzling out.
