If You Judge People You Have No Time To Love Them

You know life is no storybook. But admit it: Somewhere deep in your subconscious lurk romantic visions of Cinderella, or maybe Julia Roberts. The images may be sketchy and a little outdated, but you can still make out the silhouette of the bride and Prince Charming riding off into the sunset. In real life, sometimes your Disney fairy tale ends up feeling more like a Wes Craven horror flick — and you're the chick who keeps falling down and screaming for her life. I've been there. You want to believe your pure love for each other will pull you through. And it does. But it ain't always pretty. That may sound grim. But here's a secret: Sometimes it's the least romantic parts have the most to teach you about yourself, your partner, and the nature of love. 

Kim Kardashian was in Toronto last night, on a search for the "World's Best Couple"...

Now, I'm not really sure what this means, or what they're judging these couples on, but the winners of this competition win a 22 carat diamond ring at a "Best Couple" ceremony in Chicago.

What makes a couple, the best couple in the world? Their love for each other? Their compatibility?
I signed up for the contest just to see how it works and it looks like a popularity contest.

I'm not sure if I would actually put my relationship online in a worldwide contest like that (or at least in the qualifying countries: New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the USA). I could gush for hours about how much I love my boyfriend and how wonderful it is to really feel in love with someone I feel 100% compatible with and treats me better than I could even imagine... *ahem.
But I will save the drama for my mama. This blog only allows a certain amount of cheesy-ness, and personal information.

What do you think of the contest?
It's definitely an interesting advertising strategy for Michael Hill Jewelers. A contest primarily driven and targeted towards love hungry, diamond crazy, attention seeking females. If diamonds really are a girl's best friend, Michael Hill, you nailed it.

--Not that I'm bashing the contest, it's a smart idea. Congratulations to the very lucky couple that wins the diamond! ...sign a prenup.
