Love Like Skittles

With the inauguration today, I’d imagine that many are a series of emotions, most of them negative. I figured I’d give an analogy of something I’ve been thinking about that… could be perceived as cute?

I’ve been thinking about how I handle relationships with others, and how to form connections with others. It’s a bit simplistic, but I thought of my assortment of interests and traits as a bag of Skittles, one which changes flavors and those flavors grow stronger or weaker over time. I picture most acquaintances as someone who enjoys a flavor I have to offer. That guy likes lime, we have something in common. But what’s a friend in this case? Someone who you have plenty of the same supply of Skittles over a long period of time? Someone you simply share a wide variety with?

So… to the title… what is love? As in connecting with a significant other? Perhaps it’s someone you feel you can share any flavor with for the rest of your life, regardless of whether they change flavor or intensity. But, one can dream, right? Anyways, that’s my two cents for the day, I wish everyone the best!
