Being drawn to a stranger's voice across the room. No doubting that "this is love." Eyes longing for each other, a sharing of moist breath and iris' pulse. A real, Native magic.

A rare touch eliciting truth in unconditional positive regard. Desiring to follow her naturally seductive lead. Heaven on earth. Lasting memories after years of pent-up passion.

It used to just mean 'pain'. Then W came along. I wanted nothing to do with her, and tried to avoid her at all costs, but she stalked me into submission. After the first 6 months or so of living together, I got comfortable. Now, after 2 years, I'm firmly in love with her. It doesn't feel like any of the previous hormone-dictated situations. She's somene that I can just be me with... fart in bed, scratch my *** when it itches, keep drinking when she says that I've had enough... typical wife stuff.
Speaking of which, I'd best log out now and go down to bed before I get treated to the 'rolling pin persuasion'.

What falling in love feels like to you


I have something rather humorous to share.

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

When I was a younger man, I fell in love on a regular basis. It seemed a pleasant experience at the time. But I have been standing in love for the past 19 years and I look back on that era as a huge waste.

When I was a younger man, falling in love was some of the most cherished feelings I can remember.

You know, finally getting to go on a date with that special someone you've had your eye on for some time. Then making out and..... that night...

Then.........

OMG the preoccupation with the night before, all day at work, the next day!!!!!

I would give my right arm to relive some of those moments, even though I was usually the one to get hurt 90% of the time.

I think there's two kind of love and the more you lean towards one or the other, it becomes less like love and more like something else:

the first kind is the instinctual love, the infatuation, the hormones, which is steps away from lust.

the second is the intellectual love, the kind of faith and trust you build up with something. Perhaps a platonic relationship.

As I get older, the frequency and intensity of instinctual love has greatly decreased and long-lasting platonic relationships have showed to be more stable and not intense at all. Grass is always greener, I guess. Less drama = less fun.

I'm through with love. I'm just looking for someone that can tolerate me.

Also, my older daughter "spawn" who's birthday is also today, reminded me she gave me the fruitbat and that's all the love I need in life.

I reminded her that he's a little dog and might only have another 8 years to live. She assured me I'd die first, so won't have to worry about it. She always knows how to cheer me up.

No! You're too young to give up! And you should expect more than toleration from a relationship.

You need to sit down and have a long talk with her.

sort of like proving a theorem, you're happy all over and wonder if it can really be true.
