I agree. Love is timeless. Once you get into a relationship of love then it can never die. You might lose the passion but it can be rekindled.

Clubs/theatres. At a guess, The Palace probably holds somewhere between 700-1,000. Same venue PT played. The largest venue PT hit was the Enmore in Sydney, which has a capacity of around 2,300-2,400 and the security guard in front of me told me that they expected an attendance of 1,600-1,700.

Ha. If Kate wants back, she's going to have to buy me the New Zealand railway network or get U2 to hire me as their setlist designer or something.

I said I'd always love her, but if somebody breaks my trust, fuck 'em.

For fun when I write comics my characters are going to love artists like Diluted Disorder Establishment, No, Lady Lionheart and my favorite Rodent Schrubery.

This may sound harsh but it seems more like Kate liked you but never loved you. Am I right?

That's really not the case all the time.

Maybe but true love like Tourist has is timeless. Sometimes people fall in love but realize they aren't really. True love is when every fiber of your being is devoted to someone you care about romantically. It can be unrequited and die but when two people come together it never fades. It always is there.

No, I think for the first eight or nine months, she loved me. She jumped in too fast, wasn't ready for a lot of it, and frankly misjudged me due to infatuation, but I would say she loved me.

But we were together two and a half years. For at least the final year, you're absolutely right.

That's a shame it didn't work out then. I know some people want to be in love so bad but they begin to realize they aren't. I'm not saying that's the case with you two. I just think that is why so many people who say they are in love end up spliting. But then again what do I know.

For some people, it fades over time. People change. It's just the nature of the beast.

My love for a person I get into a relationship with will never fade. It will burn bright for as long as I exist as atoms upon atoms. I have only been in true love once and I am still madly love that person. I always will. My love is unconditional and unending.

The crucial difference between Kate and I is that I'm focused on the long-term (no fucking wonder I'm a historian), while she lives for the short-term and is a "grass is greener on the other side" sort of person. Part of the reason she wanted to end things is because she simply wanted to know what it was like to be with somebody else, as I was her first boyfriend.

Personally, I couldn't give a shit and never gave that sort of thing a thought, but hey, if your life is centred around chasing happiness in the immediate short-term, I suppose you think like that.

By the way for anyone wondering it was meant to be Pure Reason Revolution, Yes, Kate Bush and Porcupine Tree. This post had a point.
