Yours forever,

There are love-letters, there are hate-letters. Then there are rejection letters and breakup letters. One can accept another person’s love via a letter too. Letters- lovely little chumps. Of course I am including here both snail-mail and email. I see no difference other than the speed.

What do you write in a letter at the bottom? “Yours forever” if you are in deep love, I guess. “Miss you”, if you are missing or the ultimate one “Love you”. :)

Now, the question is “How much do you mean them?” I had seen people who write this crap and do not mean such things. But the mirror got crashed somehow so I don’t see nowadays. ^_^
On a serious note, why do people write this when they don’t mean this. Why do they lie through their teeth so blatantly and bluntly?

Is it because they really mean it?

I don’t think so. I mean who can be so foolish in this world to think that a relationship can last a year, let alone a forever. Can you imagine a guy writing “yours forever” while thinking- “Damn, I am going to make it last.” Yeah, sounds foolish to me too. Surely no guy in his right mind will think that he can make it last. C’mon dude, the girl needs a break too. For how long will she handle you? Just look at yourself and you will get the answer. So, lets throw the real, emotional guy out of the window.

The second option is general courtesy. But sure you don’t need that with the one you love, do you? Maybe courtesy is something that we all need at some point of time with even those who are closest to us. But then it goes against everything based on truth as it is a lie, like all general courtesy.

The third is that the guy is a jerk really and is lying. Period. No arguments here frankly.

Whatever be the reason the truth is that in any case the “yours forever” is such an obsolete term that it should not be used at any cost. There is no forever, ever. It is our misunderstanding this one simple fact that forces us to make this grave mistake of using “yours forever” so easily..
