In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson

Fall in love

Have been scientifically proven that,
Women take 15 days to fall in love
Men just 8.2 Seconds

    Haha you're probably right @[email protected].

    Do you believe in love at first sight?

    I think that is largely because men base more of their opinion on how someone looks, which you can see straight away, and women base it more on personality, which takes longer to ascertain.

    Very true @GemmaRowlands.

    that people at yourselves life fall in love maximum 3 times. Another loves is not big or is not real love. What do you think about that declare?
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,659 ✭✭✭✭
    It is important to distinguish between 'falling in love' and 'falling in lust.'

    A boy proposed a girl and girl said no but that boy was not said when asked by his friend,Boy said why I should sad I lost someone who doesn't love me at all but ,she should sad as she lost someone who loves her very much .

    I think there is a different definitions of love for boys and girls.For some love is doing what is comfortable for them to do but for others love is doing what makes comfortable to whom you love.
    Love start by heart but last long when you think in mind that you want this love to last long .

    But if distribute our heart portion in friendship for other person then definitely that decrease that much heart portion of love .

    I think often people have very different ideas as to what 'love' means. I recall a Buddhist monk calling it 'falling in lust,' which for many can be the case @nidhii.
  • nidhiinidhii Posts: 847 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge What s your idea of love?
    For me it's when a person is your complete world .And you can do any thing for him.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,659 ✭✭✭✭
    I suppose for me, the person has to be first and foremost a real friend who understands me @nidhii. But I don't think that they should have the monopoly on friendship as it is important to be able to socialise and have other friends. But they are the special, number one friend that you want to spend most time with.
  • nidhiinidhii Posts: 847 ✭✭✭✭
    I am 101% consensus of your view.We are a social human being so it's natural we will make friends .
    But you know I had different view two years back .I had a wish of one real friend or best friend definitely male one but I think I will not love him .But gradually I realised that real friendship develop only bcuz love present and we realize it only latter .And there should be only one real friend or best friend which is our love only.There can be thousand causal friend but if we want to be loyal we should develop that real friendship only with one person .Having soft corner for every one is ....

    There can be love without it having to be one person only and physical though. I have many friends who I love and who I wouldn't go to bed with. However I would go out of my way to help them if they need help, will listen when they need an ear or shoulder to cry on. But as I am not in a relationship, I guess this is easier. In a relationship I suppose jealousy rears its head and couples might not be quite so relaxed about each other having too many friends.
  • nidhiinidhii Posts: 847 ✭✭✭✭
    Yes definitely how a girl friend or wife can tolerate it his husband or boyfriend have other friends girl and he develop love in that friendship .Even though it's not about sex , but only sex is not a scale of loyalty .Loyalty should be in feeling also.Although I am very possessive person and I cant bear it that my love ,love someone else but no matter how much I love him if he wanna make such type of friendship with other girls I will allow him to go but then I will not be his friend.But I never be hinder if he wanna move on and develop other friendship or love whatever.
    It always our choice whom and what we want in life.
