Butterflies Don’t Mean Love!!


Okay so I saw this film BAGGAGE CLAIM last week Friday you know your typical rom com and it happened to be a black one and it got me thinking.  If you intend to watch this film then stop reading NOW!!

The film is about a woman who is yet to find a husband her mother always pressures her and she feels like she will never get married. She has a best friend who is male from school days they get on so well but she goes on a quest to find a man in time for sister engagement party. She goes above and beyond to find him to end up with the person right under her nose.

Okay I think I can stop there you get the drift.

 Yes that typical situation!!

Now when you watch these mushy films I think it not a case of getting all caught up in the moment or thinking the same will or won’t happen in real life. It is more of a case that the film having messages hidden within the situations that definitely apply to REAL LIFE!! 

1. She ends up with the guy who lives across the hall – So this can happen in real life your too busy looking for perfect or an unrealistic representation of the right man who you fail to see what is right in front of you.

2. She was searching for this man that didn’t exist – This fairytale man doesn’t exist but the RIGHT man who will treat you like a queen and look after you does!!

3. Her mother putting pressure on her because she isn’t married yet – Don’t live your life how others tell you to, do what you feel happy with and what works for you. You decide when the time is right and also the place.

These are a few points that I got from the film as I wasn’t about to get all dreamy and wait for my knight in shining armour 🙂

I like to take my experiences and turn them into something constructive!!

BUTTERFLIES DON’T MEAN LOVE although that tingling feeling can be an indicator that you fancy, have feelings or are lusting for. In my opinion it doesn’t mean that you love that person.

Love isn’t easy it is about what you would do for that person despite their faults and mistakes.

Love doesn’t have a time or a place.

My thoughts on love change due to things I see, experience and encounter!

But I do know that true love never dies, it just is hidden well or just isn’t allowed to roam free!
