Review:AndrinaBlack says:
It's easy to identify with Molly here when you haven't found your one true love yet. This felt like such an honest piece, if you know what I mean. I also liked it that Molly didn't find her true love by the end of this. It would somehow have lost some of its effect that way, I think.

This really makes me think of how we use the word love in general. It maybe comes more easily for things than people. Like "I love coffee! I love chocolate!" or something else like that. That's easier to say than "I love you" I think. And somehow I feel like it's in any way easier to say in English than at least in my native languages Finnish and Swedish. Maybe that's because they are longer words and love is easier to say than that. Like you here also talked about the differences between love and amor. ("I love you" by the way is in Finnish "Minš rakastan sinua" and in Swedish "Jag šlskar dej".)

With the risk of sounding a bit strange after all the talk about the word, I'm going to say that I especially loved the title of this. I also loved the first line and last line. Wow this was a very thought provoking piece and it's good writing. I truly did enjoy reading this.

Author's Response: I wanted to make Molly and her situation relateable. If it sounds honest, I think it might be because I've wondered the same thing on and off -- the word's used in so many ways, so how much powerful of a meaning can it have anymore?

Someone once pointed out to me that we use the same word to describe a pizza as we do for deep affection for someone else. I think "love" in English has become so worn out, whereas "amor" to me sounds like something you can't give muliple meanings.

Is it sad that I can't pronounce either of those? :P I wish I could, I love languages!

Thanks for reviewing, Annina!
