“There’s nowhere to hide when love is callin’ your name, yeah
There’s nowhere to hide, so let love have its way with your heart
When love calls, love calls, love calls your name.” – Kem
Love is unpredictable. It does not schedule an appointment with your life to see when you can fit it into your schedule. It does not check with the condition of your heart to see if you can open it up again and risk another heartbreak. Love does not even give you a heads up to get ready because it is on its way. Love just calls and when love calls, will you answer or will you send it to voicemail?
“I’m almost 30. I would answer the phone and say, ‘Where you at? I’ll meet you in five minutes.” – Lyla
“I will answer the phone if love calls. I can’t keep running away from love! Love is patient and love is everything mixed with good, bad, happy, and sad. God created love to help one another draw closer to him. Love is beautiful but so many people manipulate it and abuse it which makes others afraid of it. But when love calls, I’m taking the call especially when it’s from the one I know I want to fall in love with.” – Shiloh
I would answer because I will never be ready for Love, just like I’ll never be “ready” for a child, a family etc…I need to experience love even if it’s leads to heartbreak. I have figured out that I have been heartbroken by Family, Friends etc. Why am I so afraid of being heartbroken by a romantic partner? That’s right, society plays a role in how I contextually think about heartbreak from a romantic partner. Although, some people will say that their previously family life has made them have a hard time in romantic relationships, we still never contextualize the same way we do romantic relationships. I need to experience how my choices affect my life and not continue to wait for things to happen to me. I play an active role in love therefore I would accept the call. I would experience the consequences and if things went sour, wait for another call. To my surprise, things may go great and I end up having a life changing experience that I would have not known had I not answered the call. Don’t be afraid of love, if the phone rings, PICK UP THE CALL. Generally speaking, you been complaining about no one calling you before, so now that the phone is ringing: answer it! – Dylan
“Yes, because it aligns with my purpose at this moment. Building a powerful partnership and providing resources to a variety of communities. I can’t do it by myself and I need help from my everyday partner. My loving patient encouraging partner.” – Kelleigh
“A month ago, I would have sent it to voicemail because of all the heartaches I’ve had. I figured I was too young to be trying and begging for a man to pick me. But now, I’ll definitely answer because if it happens, it happens. God places you exactly where you are supposed to be. And despite what everyone says, love doesn’t have a time frame and it can happen today or tomorrow or in an hour.” – Brielle
“My initial gut and my heart’s response is yes I would answer because I love the idea of love. I love the thought of being captivated by love. The hopeless romantic in me would answer the call. But after taking a step back to really think about it, the practical side of myself would not answer the phone. Truthfully, I know I’m not ready for love. I’m still healing, I’m still trying to settle feelings and gain peace from previously being in what I thought was love. I’m still trying to work on myself in several areas of my life. Could I really reciprocate the definition of love in Corinthians right now in my life? Probably not. Answering love’s call right now would probably hurt the person on the other end. I’m still figuring things out, I’m still guarded. As bad as I want to answer it, I don’t think the timing is right. So for right now, I’m going to let it go to voicemail and hope it calls back at a later time. Eventually, I would like to answer love’s call with the right love initiating the call.” – Tahiri
