Paris- Ma Petite Amie: Dating the city

My true love is Paris.  'Why?' many might ask... It's as simple as this: people spend their whole lives looking for a home, sometimes this home can be found in loved ones or partners, other times this home truly is as simply as it may sound, home, a house to call their own.  For me, however, this home is neither a person nor a location, but an intangible idea, a passion, a culture, a way of life.  So now to get a little confusing with all this, how did I declare my love for Paris without even meeting her?  I decided Paris was the one way before I has even traveled to that timezone, let alone the actual city.  And in fact that's the best part of it all.  Loving something you don't truly understand.  And what's the rush when you have your whole life ahead of you to do so?  I love Paris not simply because of the shops or people, food or monuments.  I love Paris because of who I am with her.  When I began loving her she set a fire in my heart, a passion, a goal, a final destination.  Without the determination I have developed I would not be who I am today.  Paris has given me something to works towards and with the city being ever changing that makes it even more convenient for my dreams to change and develop with her.  I love Paris because she symbolizes all the beautiful things in life that are yet to come.
