I Love You * ;)

    I Love You ******* ;)

    I know you’ve already told or will tell anybody whom you consider as your Prince or Princess “I Love You”!!!

    Hmm…but the problem is that…when we first want to tell him/her…the heart beats extremely…and we feel very nervous!!!

    As it’s a different and most exciting experience, I want to know how did you started? Or think to start???

    well i was in a relationship with her at the time. Besides i would rather not leave myself exposed like that. I would probably not tell a girl i loved her until she told me, no matter how strongly i felt for her.

    Hmm ... but if she also thinks like you ? :wink:

    i wouldnt know that....hmmm if that were to occur, then i suppose we would find away of showing it until it becomes REAL obvious and doesnt seem so daunting to say it.

    Hmm....Jimmy is the only Lover boy here...and all others are pure Physicist in mind :wink:

    I suppose you could start a conversation with the idea that according to the 'many worlds' interpretation of QM, there is at least one Universe where you are very much in love with that person........

    (Its a start!)

    I love you too Moni! or is it just a coincidence that my name fits right in there? :wink: Ofcourse Tsunami would fit too.. becarefull Ivan doesn't see this thread.. secret admirers and all

    Um, the topic was? Well, how can you love someone if they don't love you back??? It is not one way traffic.. in that case it would just be something more tame to convey the feeling and see if it is returned, after which there is space for real love to grow its roots deeply into the heart.

    Don't confuse infatuation with love.. your heart will definately get broken :)

    Thanks Monique yeah! That Moni+que :wink: ha..ha..that's why we stay togather side by side at least in the online status member list

    Actually, from my part...Love is not like any traffic system!
    When you love somebody...do you always expect he/she will also love you?...oh! isn't that a selfish idea "If he/she Loves me, I'll love him/her"???

    You see Indian movies much you know...how Love is treated in this part of the world...but from my side...I think Love is devine! It's same from the Shakespeare to this moderntime...and of course will remain so so...

    Besides...by Love we also mean Love towards our parents, brothers, sisters and of course God!!!

    We Love to live, Love to play, Love to play guitars ;), Love to sing, Love to pray, Love to do well of others, Loved to be Loved by others....

    But when it comes to any male and female relationship, it may be Love towards a friend, or admire or sister or mother...grandmother.......

    This is just a feelings...we love to maintain in our mind....no matters she loves me or not...from my part I love her...and that's the real feeling....and always I want, what she wants for herself to be the best....that's true Love and that comes from Heaven .....

    OK, oh wise one. Explain the difference.

    I am interested in hearing women's criteria for when the word "love" is appropriate and accurate between a man and a woman. What conditions have to be met for it to be "love"?

    Sorry, I have a complex about this issue, just now. It seems to be a catch 22: if you don't say it, you aren't committed, if you do say it you don't seem to realize the magnitude of the word.

    You'll probably get a different answer from each woman.

    For me, you should be able to see it in their eyes, hear it in their voice, it will be demonstrated by their actions, it will be obvious before the words are ever said & will not be a surprise. Ok, that's ideally. It even happened that way a few times.

    What I mean by the above is do they start referencing the two of you as a couple, long term, talking about the future, want you to meet their friends, their family, become part of their "inner circle", little things like that will let you know what's on their mind.

    If the relationship is "right" the other person shouldn't expect you to say anything, because they should already know it. If they take the first step and tell "you" that they love you, it's decision time for you. If you're not there "emotionally" yet, you've got a lot of thinking to do. Is this someone you might get to love? If so, do you go ahead and tell them you love them too? Or do you try to scale them back and risk ending the relationship? That's a real tough spot to be in.

    Only you know what you are feeling towards the other person. My advice? Be true to yourself. Do and say what you really feel...tactfully, if you know it's not what they want to hear. If the other person is the right one, they should accept this. Good relationships cannot be built on lies or doubts. You will only make things worse in the end.

    Xellent Evo! What you've said, I 100% agree with that! :smile:

    But what you've said...those can happen in long term relations....it's true that I also don't believe in Love at first site :wink:

    But only just after watching someone...you get a feelings that you love him/her...then...How you'll introduce yourself to his/her???

    These times...one thing always echos in mind "What he/she will think about me? What if he/she refuese" not?

    Those are the problems in this part

    Do you mean when you first see someone that you are attracted to and want to meet them?

    Ok, this won't always be 100% (Monique, Tsunami, jump in here), but when I used to go out and I saw someone I was attracted to, I let them know by looking directly at them and smiling, then I would turn my head away for a moment, then look back at them, and if they are still looking, I give them another smile. If they can't pick up that hint, they're dead. This doesn't mean she has to make eye contact with you, she may be too shy.

    If the girl keeps sneaking peeks at you, she's probably interested. If I was not interested in a guy, I would make a point to not look in his direction at all.

    Another thing girls do if they like a guy they see is to find some excuse to "walk by him" to make sure he sees her and to test his attraction.

    It may take awhile, but you'll start picking up on these (not so) subtle signs.

    Bottom line, if she completely avoids looking at you, if she never smiles in your direction, if she starts to walk away when you approach, it probably would not be wise to hit on her.

    It means to "make a move" to go up to her and say something. Hopefully something clever. Ah, and there's the hard part...what DO you say??
  20. Feb 2, 2004 #19
    its an expression that means "to ask her out on a date, or to show her that you are romanticly interested in her"
  21. Feb 3, 2004 #20
    Yes, all this is an excellent articulation of what I was formerly under the impression ought to be appropriate.

    However, as you said, every woman will have a different answer.
