How many great loves.. in one life time?

Re-watching some old SATC episodes (seriously, one of the best shows ever) and the topic of one of them was "how many great loves does a person have per lifetime". According to Charlotte and a magazine theory a person has two great loves per life. Huh.

I've been in love before.. riight? Sure, I mean, I love my handbags, I love my shoes.. oh wait, that doesn't count ey? I love my family, my friends, my dog. But still, that's a different love. Okay okay, so, I've "loved" two of my ex-boyfriends..

But to be honest it wasn't IT. Maybe it was just a case of zsa-zsa-zsu. It felt like "it" at the moment, sure, but was it real?? Or was it just me trying to be in love. You know, when you want something so bad you just make it happen.. And I'm that kind of person, the type who believes my own lies.. so it kinda worked. But in the end just like with most lies, it was broken and all that's left is to pick up the pieces and move forwards.

The episode finishes off with Carrie saying something I totally love: "Maybe the past is like an anchor that's holding us back. Maybe you have to let go of who you were, to become who you will be". And by god I hope I'll become a person who'll know how to love. To really love..

..have you ever been in love?
