Love to Swing It?! Be Swung or Either-Or Swinger?

Leave a comment

Life will be shaken by Mother Nature. The Earth would move and crack. Everything around us only goes in one direction. The laws given to live in this cycle of life is never broken.

However life has lifestyles of choice, some of which can go to different directions. But then if you consider love-life, it can be a swing. Just like the swing you sit in a playground. Although it may be a childish example but if you can relate how life is moving and never still. You could sit on it alone and you have a choice to stay still or sway it; yet you can never get the full excitement of it unless someone gives a push of what it brings.

If you could imagine or be in the swing where you are swung especially by someone can be a wonderful feeling. (Note that *swang* may be accepted as a past tense but arguably incorrect, I will make another post about it another time.) As the definition describes, it goes only back and forth. No matter how far you go, the momentum always return to the other end to the one who pushed you. Yet, I wonder who is the one who pushes within each relationship. All I do know is the one who does is the one who provides the effort to continue the motions. Another thing I wonder is, does the couple ever switch places? Do they each get a turn of the thrill or of anything?

However, some exceptionally can go in circles as if it cycles around like a spinning pendulum. Whether it goes clockwise or counter-clockwise, the circle can never be in the center. It won’t meet its center and will always revolve around it like planets. Almost as if some people felt their world revolved others as some did vice-versa to keep that motion going. The flow can be as imbalanced as 40-60 and so forth.

Swingers are the ones who swings as plainly said. Although swingers refer to people in sexual activity and of course, it has a negative connotation; but it also refers to who mainly is the receiver of the feeling of excitement. I would think anyone in relationship could be consider a swinger because of the joy that bought between two especially without the act of sex.

It doesn’t have to be an infatuation or a sort. It can be anything depending on who thinks which is considered active and appealing. But then to share the events is evermore interesting and moving.

Many of our choices are based on “yes or no” questions. To do or not to do. In this case, some people choose to sit on the swing to be swung which you are a swinger. Or become the one who gives the push to the swinger to swing. Be the giver or receiver.

But then, you can never see everything what is not in front of you, can you? Although this is wishful thinking, pushing the front rather from behind is better. To see the person in front of you who is supporting, giving or even so loving rather than blindly not know who did it or assume who did. Switching is another good alternative, to share the fun you can offer almost like a dance.

Whether if it’s just an ordinary swing, dance or any sort of occasion, what will you do?

To swing is simple, but how long does will it last?

I would think, we’re already sitting on a swing. Alone or not. But getting off it, is another life to move forward and back to.
