Some people find it sweet and endearing. Some people think it is ruining Parisian architecture, and still others think it is a misguided view of love. Does the concept of locking yourself together really symbolize love? Or if you truly love someone do you set them free? Is a lock a symbol of love or possession?
Personally I think the locks are lovely, sweet and a bit misguided. As a single gal, I love the idea of love, and the willingness to put your love on display for the world. I don’t however love the idea of love as possession or property. Freedom is too precious to me and a lock is by definition used to fasten or secure something to keep it safe. There is nothing safe about love and you can’t secure it; that is the beauty of love. What do you think? To lock or not to lock?
