What is love?

27 Oct

Here at Oi! You Blog Head we don’t shy away from the big questions. Whether it’s tackling the questions of Jesus and hangovers, Beef drinks or the very question of love. But that’s be fair we don’t have all the answers (Yer we do!). I’m sure we are all familiar with the phrases “I love you”, ” I love the time we spend together”, “I love your dress”, “I’d love it if you’d just leave me well alone forever” or “I love that thing you do to my anus”. Whether you’re a fan of all that or not, it is part of all our lives. On that note here’s a story. Caution; don’t read on if you don’t love romantic, soppy, delicate stories.

Back in the days where I was in year ten (I had the ladies coming out of my ears back then too), I was going out with this young girl. Not like pervy young we were the same age, but I think its better not to be on the sexual naughty people’s list. Anyways we had been going out for a while and we did all the normal things that young couples do heading down to the park, watching films, holding hands, only kissing her on the cheek and not to mention fingering her once or twice. So fast forward to a cross roads in our relationship and this has happened to all of us. It was the time when I looked her in the eye and I knew exactly how I felt about her, but it was in a way that I just couldn’t put into words (awww). We were at a friend’s house party and we had managed to capture a room for ourselves (all the cool people will know how hard it is to do so at a packed house party). And in that room we, as young people at the time, did a bit of fooling around. I know what you’re thinking….. is this some sort of tender reminiscent recollection of the first time you made love. Sadly not, we don’t know each other well enough.

So we were both (I assume) were having a good time, when from nowhere she turns around (nudge, nudge) and she looks me in the eye and said the 3 dreaded words. The words that any teenage boy hates to hear. The terrifying words “time of month”. I joke. She said “I love you”. In the 2 seconds I had to think about it, millions of things rushed though my head, “should I say it back?”, “should I go in for the kill?”, “is she really on” and “what does this mean for our relationship?”. I in the end made a decision.

So this is where you come in. what should I have done or for those of you who know me what did you think I did. I might tell you what happened in my next post or maybe I’ll just leave it in the past. I can safely say though that lesson were learned. Share the stories of your life where your girlfriend said “I love you” or any “I love you” stories. It’s needless to say that Me and Adam are big fans of love. We will love you soo much more when you leave a comment.


Don’t do drugs. Unless they were turned from sand to cocaine by Jesus. You can argue with Jesus so don’t even fucking try to.

Peace and Love

    Brian Fantana: I think I was in love once.

    Ron Burgundy: Really? What was her name?

    Brian Fantana: I don’t remember.

    Ron Burgundy: That’s not a good start, but keep going.

    Brian Fantana: She was Brazilian, or Chinese, or something weird. I met her in the bathroom of a K-Mart and we made out for hours. Then we parted ways, never to see each other again.

    Ron Burgundy: I’m pretty sure that’s not love.

    Brian Fantana: Damn it!

    Maybe you could have followed in the footsteps of what myself and Adam did around that tender age; you could have got on stage in front of an assembly hall full of your peers and angelically sung along to The Darkness’ “I Believe In A Thing Called Love”, including the guitar solo! Granted this was for Comic Relief…. but it still would have worked! 😀

      Sounds like a massive gesture and massive gestures are always a true sign of love. But that is just a fucking touching story!!

    Evidence suggests that people in love often show signs of mental illness. Psychologist Janis Ericson found that both lovers and OCD suffers have levels of serotonin 40% lower than normal. Jon Maner of Florida State University found that people pay much less attention to the opposite sex when they are in love; love really is blind. When a human is in love Dopamine levels fluctuate dramatically. Such fluctuations can lead to difficulty controlling anger and have also been linked to physical pain. Additionally, Dr Fisher, an anthropologist at New Jersey’s Rutgers University, claims that peoples cognitive abilities don’t function properly when they are in love and the rational part of the mind can shut down.

    For those in love, ignorance is bliss.

      It’s great to have an academic view of what it is like to be in love. So interesting how our physical body is so influenced, changed and affected by such and abstract (well I think) concept. I would simply love to get your opinion on whether it’s good or not. Maybe having total control over our anger isn’t always a good thing.

      Wonderfully informative and one of our best comments. Thank you!

    you should have licked her face and said – “two words”…. you know the rest!
