The first love paradox

A recent post about someone’s love story gave me this idea of creating a paradox for love, parallel to the omnipotence paradox. If you have not read about the omnipotence paradox, let me try to explain it:

“Omnipotence means ability to do anything. If God is omnipotent, then he must be able to formulate a work which he cannot do. If he cannot create such work, he is notΒ omnipotent. And if he does create such a work, that means he failed to create a work which he cannot do. “

If you are a believer and you are fuming at me for writing this, let me save myself my saying that I am not an atheist. I just saved my life by using the power of words. Jokes apart, I wanted to propose a paradox for first love. My view is that there is no such thing like first love. People fall in love and then they break up. They take their lessons and fall again, to learn some more lessons. Each of those affairs get counted as First-Love at some point of time. Teenagers look for attention givers and protectors, youth looks for exploration, then they pursue stability in their 30s and the cycle goes on. I am seven years behind that mark of 30, so I am not the best person to comment on the love that happens during the age of 30s. “Salt as per the taste”, you must have read it in the recipes. The same applies to love. My conclusion is:

“First love happens once, twice and thrice”

If I made my readers fume once again, I offer my head on a silver plate. Chop it off, add salt as per the taste and eat it. These are my views, and I do not have to be right.

  1. Well said. You express yourself dynamically. If people are truly offended, they are likely to see the world as black or white. Keep thinking outside the box and enjoy life.
    Stay healthy and happy

  2. I suppose God is omnipotent(knows all and is all power) but in my opinion there are far to many imperfections in his creation especially that unmerited suffering thing for some alleged plan. God and I will have a very distasteful conversation about this when the time comes. On the other hand I am thankful and feel blessed about certain things. In many cases his plan for me was better than one I might have authored. Thanks visit my blog.

    1. My thoughts resonate with yours. I am a believer, but I do have my moments of confusion when I start analyzing his presence critically. It is nice to have you on-board, looking forward to read more of your works πŸ™‚

  3. Your comment on love searches during the different age groups is pretty accurate generally speaking and the lines blur depending how close to the cusp you are. I’ve decided to throw all those things out the window and just focus on making me happy. Love comes when you least expect it. To me, that’s the best kind.
    As for one soulmate… not sure if I believe in that. But I really do believe that we meet multiple people throughout our lives that match a part of our soul. That includes friends and lovers. And it’s a wonderful thing! πŸ™‚

          1. I have faced this issue before, WordPress filters have some issues. Your comment was part of an ongoing chain of comment, so this is beyond the scope of logical explanation. I have made it to a point to check my spam folder regularly πŸ™‚

  4. I’m not here to agree or disagree… but I believe LOVE is an extreme level. I would not call a teenage romance as love. Love comes when your demands end.
    Self less love.. unconditional love…true love…
    happens only once!!!!!

    Same, some may not agree… but this is what I believe.
    I’m 6 behind the mark of thirty but my age doesn’t define my thoughts, but my thoughts does define me!

    Keep smiling: )

    1. I respect your thoughts about love. Love is a mystery as per me. I often resort to Greek mythology in such situations. As per that, AgΓ‘pe, Γ‰ros, Philia and Storge are four major types of love. As per me, AgΓ‘pe should be the root of every other type of love. πŸ™‚

  5. Fantastic!!
    I loved the first paradox about God. Made perfect sense to me. πŸ™‚
    First love? Maybe… For all we know, the definition of Love itself keeps changing, then does it matter if it’s first or second or third?
    It’s never the same, and never can be!!
