Finding True Love Across The Miles In This Modern Day

“…You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take

You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes…”

– The Supremes

a-sweet couple

Yes I believe it.  You can’t hurry love.  True love can wait and it will come at the right moment you need it. Some people travel the world and during their wanderings they meet someone unintentionally.  At that moment, they feel the love inside.  Love at first sight…true love like no other.  And that’s a fact in some stories I heard from friends and family.

In this generation of modern technology, old fashioned courtship can only be found in distant places in the provinces.  Most likely in the third world countries.  In the Philippines, old fashioned courtship or test of love is still done to this day.

The Suitor’ Pursuance

The suitor asks the woman’s parents’ permission to court her.

He brings flowers and simple presents to his love.

He serenades his love usually in the evening when he comes for a visit.

Whenever the man gets the chance, he helps with the household’s outdoor chores like fetching water, bring firewood, and harvesting crops.

 The Woman’s Answer

It is the woman’s decision to accept and say “Yes” to the suitor.  If she loves him in return, then they will have a happy relationship.

In the modern world today, courtship can be done on the Internet.  I met my husband on a dating site.  It was a free online dating site where single men and women meet and get to know each other for a lifetime love.  The site is free.  No membership charges or anything.  We fell in love and had a long distance relationship.  He traveled across the miles to visit me.  My husband and I found true love and we are now a happy couple and proud parents of a sweet smart little girl.
