Elsewhere in this forum, expressions of seeking love (not misplaced lust) from unknown sectors of foreign societies are extant and replete with more stories and accounts of the bewildering attempts and failures than one might hope are waiting for those who have dreams and expectations of a fulfilling love; only to be immediately betrayed at every opportunity of an ill-advised and definitively deceptive advance of suspect affections. This forum is filled with the warnings, that even if it were limited to one region only (such as made available here in this forum), there would be so very little room to list and contemplate the emotional horrors of those who are made prey by the infinite number of hostile predators on the prowl. This, coming from the land of the free and the home of the brave, where one cannot get a fill of the love-bound displays in cinema and other media explorations of life-long bliss of romance and happiness; this message of being wary is doubly presented in seeking love in the right places and not in the darkened imaginations of those not seeking companionship, but are looking to find someone to be conformed to an idea that is not of love, but of domination. If a man does not understand his place in a compassionate society and seek a partnership that fulfills a common goal of building a life that embraces eternal love: as it is written, they become actions in futility and love is never achieved. This must be learned in youth; otherwise it is too late to acknowledge that true love is only achieved when it is acted upon in mutual sacrifice to each other. The romance of it is vapor; the vapor is unsustainable and will never achieve immortality. It is better to remain in satisfied solitude than to partner with evil convictions that are meant to destroy love, not to promote it.
