Love

This post is very random, but let's talk about love. I know I'm way behind but I just recently watched The Hunger Games. And wow! Now I want to see the second movie and read the books, haha! To my point, in the movie, Katniss and Peeta (sorry if it's spelled wrong, bare  with me) were kinda urged to become an "item". Especially after Peeta confessed his love for her live on tv. And also during the Hunger Games their mentors thought it would help them get sponsors if the two portrayed being a couple, which in the end, I believe, actually happened. Where am I going with this? 
•Point 1- Haven't you noticed that almost every movie has romance in it. Whether it be sexual or pure love, it's there. For example: Hunger Games, Twilight, and the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I've wondered, does the world put love in everything because that's what we strive for, to be loved? In one of Lorde's songs, she talks about competing for a love we won't receive. The world is full of successful romance and hopeless romantics but don't we all deserve to be loved by someone? Last night in church, the pastor said that if we love someone we should say it more, because people forget. 
•Point 2- Romance novels, in my opinion gives people hope for the "love" they want. For example, when Fifty Shades of Grey came out it's like every female in the world was reading it. I also read a lot of reviews about how wives wanted to be treated like Ana in the book.
Well this concludes my little random rant, hope you enjoyed it!
