Hello my little munchkins. How are you all doing? I am doing good. Today I have decided to talk about Love in YA (Young Adult) Books and if we really do need it or not. I was brought upon this idea when I read a tweet on twitter and since it is the month of St. Valentines I decided that I wanted to talk about this. I hope you all enjoy this book.
How important is LOVE?
I was thinking about how important is love really. Do we need it to survive? Like we do with Air, Food, Water, and Shelter. The answer is really simple we don’t. It is something though that people in certain sexualities may want.
Have you heard the term Aromantic?
Aromantic is what I found through personal research, “An aromantic is a person who experiences little or no romantic attraction to others. Where romantic people have an emotional need to be with another person in a romantic relationship, aromantics are often satisfied with friendships and other non-romantic relationships.”
I of course could be wrong in the description that I found and if there is anyone who can help me educate myself on the matter please comment below.
Friendships VS. Romantic Relationships?
Friendships and Romantic Relationships are both something that have a start and a beginning in my opinion, the major difference is that you feel different types of love. In romantic relationships we mostly associate it with sexual intercourse whereas Friendships are something that that I associate with sarcasm and more of a family bond then anything.
My main point is do we really need all of these romantic relationships in YA where we see kids falling in love left and right when in many circumstances in real life that isn’t what happens.
Love at first sight?
In many YA books we see characters falling in love at first glance. If you haven’t read it you soon will. It is the one trope that I hate and I have come to understand others who hate it too. So why do we keep on seeing it in books. Why do we keep on buying books with love at first sight in it? WHY DO WE KEEP ON SUPPORTING THIS. I am being serious. If a majority of us hate it why don’t we keep on talking about it. Spread our voices.
What even is love?
This is just a question that I personally have. I hope you would all try to answer it in the comments.
What is love even like in YA?
Love is a thing that many people on a psychological area crave and on another is a one that we need so what is it like in YA?
I want you guys to say what it is really like.
