Yeah, it's the Hallmark-Holiday we all love to hate...

But ain't love funny? It can come in so many forms and go in so many directions. For some of us, what seems so perfect and natural draws such venom and ire from complete strangers. Love comes easy for some of us (who often remark about how easier it would be to stay single), yet not so much for others, who remark that all they want is someone to call their own. Some of us find that "one true love" and have it snatched away by forces beyond our control. Some of us cling to a tumultuous relationship, while others bail at the first sign of trouble. Sometimes a failed relationship makes a second visit- one that can be a blessing or a curse (or both). It's all so confusing. At best, love conquers all; at worst, it can seem to destroy all, too.

Yet, sometimes a simple song becomes the least common denominator- distilling all of the crap that countless couples have been through into a few chords and words. Often it means different things to different people, but somehow it still fits.

So in that vein- honor your significant other with a cheesy love song that fits your relationship. Or, post a song that says what you'd want in a relationship. Or, how about a song that tells of a love that wasn't meant to be? Or any of the above and something altogether different- it's a free country (at last)!

So in honor of my significant other- PolarBear (you know who you are).... I was glad to see 2008 and all of the trials that it brought come to an end. Things are very different for us now, but moving in a direction towards something that can be more stable over the long term. Perhaps one day we'll be able to understand why things evolved as they did- but for now, just know that you mean the world to me (even at the times when I need to be alone). I love you dearly, Mr. Bear- and this cheesy love song is for you!
