You have two chances to fall in love. Two.
Of all the fish in the entire sea, only two will make your heart feel zip zap tingly times. After that, the sea rejects you and you’re done. Get yourself a cat and a favourite TV show.
So how do I know this (obviously) completely legitimate fact is true? Because it was in a ‘study’, my friends. A study conducted at a three day festival, no less.
Apparently it was determined that we each fall in love an average of twice in our lifetimes, and 46% of people would be willing to leave their current partner if they met the love of their life.
Hmmm… I know what you’re thinking. A ‘festival’ study, Rosie? Really? I know. But I have this problem where I believe everything ‘studies’ tell me. As soon as someone puts percentages in a sentence, my mind is so dazzled that I take it as fact. For example:
Random person: “Hey Rosie, did you hear about that study that says 65% of people with blonde hair are also psychopaths?”
Rosie: “65%?!? Well that must be true because SCIENCE.”
See? Regardless of whether a study is legitimate or not, it sucks me in.
So back to this ‘two chances for love’ thing. Basically, I’m screwed.
I’ve been in love once in my life. So according to this study that I’ve now decided is the definitive word on all things love-related, that leaves me with one more chance to lock this thing down.
