Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Friday Five #55

*1. How many times have you truly been in love?*
Truly in love? Just once. Right now.
2. What was/is so great about the person you love(d) the most?
I couldn’t even begin to put my finger on it exactly. She is everything I’ve always wanted in a partner, and more. So much more. We have so much in common, and even now I’m still learning things about her that we can share. I can talk with her about anything. I love her passion for things that most people wouldn’t give a second thought about. I love her sense of humour and her sarcastic streak ’cause they’re quirky like mine. I’ve got a whole other list of stuff that I won’t mention here to save her embarrassment. And even saying all of this isn’t even _nearly_ good enough. Not even the tip of the iceberg. It’s ironic, isn’t it, how I want to be a writer and yet I can’t put this into words? I know it seems such a cop-out; I just hope that when she reads this, she’ll read between the lines.
*3. What qualities should a significant other have?*
This is an almost impossible question to reply to, because there is no universal answer. The only thing I could possibly say, is that he or she must feel absolutely right for you. That feeling can’t be moulded or manufactured, it just _is_. And if it isn’t there, well, that’s fine if it’s just a bit of fun, but a bit of fun is all it’s gonna be.
*4. Have you ever broken someone’s heart?*
I’d hate to think if I did, but I may have once. I was young and immature and stupid and scared and if I’d only told her that person what and how I really felt instead of retreating into my shell… things would have turned out the same way, but at least we’d know, you know?
*5. If there was one thing you could teach people about love, what would it be?*
I’ll reiterate something I mentioned last week, in the words of St. Augustine: _”the measure of love is to love without measure”_.
