For the past 2 academic years i have had 4 different roommates; my first was a societal reject approximately 7 or 8 years older than me, and for a brief period after the fall-out with the latter i roomed with a nice lad from Kasane, then i roomed with a certified man whore my second semester-a very bad roommate all in all and to top it all off i roomed with an international student from Lesotho, Moshoeshoe as we liked calling him and he was the best of the lot. Age-wise i am guessing he was 10-12 years older than me, but i cannot be sure he never told me. He did not talk much either and thats just how i liked it., we just said a few words mainly greetings and that was it. Not the healthiest of relationships but the most suitable for both of us.
Now i am a third year finance major student and my roommate is my boooooy!, a childhood friend and basically my go-to guy...needless to say its been the nicest of partnerships and the craziest of times. We tend to discuss a lot of stuff when we together or in the company of like-minded people, and for the past 2-3 weeks or so the topic dominating discussions is that of being single and being in a realtionship. Whether you believe in love and the 'I have a soul-mate mambo-jumbo' or being Single for life, exploring your available options and sowing your wild oats. My boy believes that being in a relationship limits your independence, you live your life taking into consideration what your better half might find offensive. No more hanging with the guys all night, no more binge drinking and no more flirting with your Eco345 classmate. Another friend on the other hand believes finding a person to share your load with...someone to look to when you down, someone to make you feel good and keep you company. Like one Tom put it last night 'Do you know the feeling you get when you wake up in the morning and find a text from the one you love?' we laughed and called him 'GAY' we are men after-all.:-D
What i know personally is being loved and reciprocating the love back is the nicest and most fulfilling feelings on earth, but on more than one occassion that fairytale fails to last and you end up holding the pieces of your heart in you hands, bitter, sad and dejected. You may move on or you might never survive the heartbreak. the rejection we experience must not under any circumstances stop us from giving ourselves away once in a while and falling in love.
Running through women and being what is termed in the modern world as a 'playa-playa' can be nice and it most probably earns you respect from Bitch NiGGas who cannot emulate your success, whilst women flock to your bed because as much as you mistreat them they cannot seem to get enough of you....but when push comes to shove you will realise you are the loneliest person in the world...alone, unloved but sexually satisfied....LPN117
