Valentine's Day of the lunar calendar

Yes, miserably for the singles ones we do have two Valentine's Days in a year. One is off course on 14/2 and the other on the 7/7 of the lunar calendar. 


Do people still believe in true love and soul mate? 


There's a interesting survey indicating that despite the skyrocketing divorce rate in the United States, approximately 80% of people believe in true love. How ironic. 


I remember quite well what my mentor lectured when I was in the university, 'to find soul mate, you got to have SOUL first.' This is so true. For some, they believe in fate and destiny much more than in themselves. That explains why psychics or fortunetellers are never out of date. 


As a matter of fact, everyone believes true love in their own way. Therefore there might be true love for two years, or more than one soul mate in one's own life. Life's short, so why not be more open minded to love? 


I feel confused occasionally when people talk about love and how they get along with their loved ones. I guess I am a bit inexperienced to lecture or criticising them that 'He's not the one',  'what's the point if you're not in a relationship with your soul mate', or, what's worse, 'you don't even have soul to be in pursuit of a soul mate',


I don't get it. Love's perplexing. For most of us, the journey to find the right one never ends. Sometimes it's good to have faith in something without know what it would be like, if it's healthy. As, the story in the movie Under the Tuscan Sun said, 'Signora, between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come.'


'Unthinkably good things can happen even late in the game. It's such a surprise.'
