Unlucky at love; it's a not-uncommon theme here @OOC, and a big (BIG) happiness hater.  But when you think about it…of all the people you know, how many would you consider lucky at love?

I've never had much luck in the Love portion of my life. Always watched love movies and watched all my friends go through it again and again but nobody ever noticed me. Am I just invisible or what? It makes me feel like I'm crap or that I need one of those love potion no.9's.

Advice please?  {end story}

What about you – lucky or unlucky at love?  Who'd got some advice to share with a Chestist asking for it?  Bring your game and your stories.  Remember, if you share yours, maybe you'll help change hers.

    Over the past couple of months, I’ve gotten to know a couple who’s now in their 60s. They’ve been together for 30-something years, have kids, grand kids, and seem as in love with each other today as I imagine they must have been when they first fell in love.

    I think they are lucky in love. I think the rest of us deal with love as it happens most of the time. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn’t. Isn’t that the reality?

    Here’s my advice —

    1. Always remember to love yourself first, last and most. I am not talking about being a narcissist, but about keeping in mind that your relationships with you is the one that will allow you to have a good relationship with others

    2. Distinguish between falling in love with another — and falling in love with the idea of falling in love

    3. Love hurts, stinks, and is all those other (good and bad) adjectives people sing and write about.

    4. Love finds you when you’re open to it, and not necessarily just because you want it

    Lastly, remember this. It really is only in the most rare of occasions that love endures. That’s just a statistical reality. Fall in love a lot. Get your heart broken a few times. It’s all good and it’s all life.

    Hope this helps some. You’ll find yours; I promise.

    What’s that line? If I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Welcome to my love life. Or the one I don’t actually have!

    I never been in love and have always thought of the day when i do “fall in” to unfold exactly like a quirky romance movie, but my non-existent love life is nothing close to that(maybe quirky but without the romance which make my life just awkward). I’ve been open to the idea of love for a long time. I’ve been waiting for it to knock on my door or bump into me on my way to work. I know that i shouldn’t though I’ve even tried looking for it as well but have yet to find it. It to makes me feel like shit like no one can see me or worse they can but don’t care.
