View Full Version : Do you believe in a love at first sight?

As little as a week ago, I would have said no. Sure, you get some oldies that say it, but you wonder if that's just a sign of their times.

And then on friday last week I went on a date with a girl. I was waiting in a pub for her, watching the cricket. When she walked in the pub, something made me turn and look at her. Although she was silhouetted and backlit, I somehow knew it was her. And she admitted to me that her heart skipped a beat when I turned to look at her and she saw me for the first time.

Allright, that could be conicidence, or just good peripheral vision on my part.

But then we talked for 7 hours straight. We have so much in common that neither of us has to explain any odd comments we make. Sure, we have different music, literary and cinematic tastes (in many cases, though not all). But all the fundamental stuff is the same.

We spend from 1pm saturday until 7.30pm sunday in each other's back pockets, and it's so natural. It's like we already know each other. We've talked about things like marriage, children, living together, our pasts and so on. And none of it felt weird or out of place. Heck, she checked out our astrological compatability, and even that looks good. And didn't bother me in the slightest. And then I go and book a $1000 flight to Vietnam with her after knowing her for 36 hours, and don't bat an eyelid.

So, love at first sight, or something else? We've even discussed whether it is love at first sight, and we both think we're believers now. So, are we insane or what?

reading that comment I thought she would have preferred that you drove the bus with different trajectories and motion in the space/time

i'm no cynic when it comes to relationships, but something like that is rather amazing. it sounds remarkably like those things you read about with celebrities who fall head over heels in love, get married and then divorce 7 days later.

still, you should always follow your heart in these things, so good luck

Colon, no. Well, I did mention meeting a few people form the internet when I was in the UK last time.

Mose, no. Though we were both raised catholics, and no longer practice. Being catholics that is. ;)

I know what you mean KG. We both think it's really weird. But, it also feels good, albeit it ina weird way. :beer:

It could be a movie:

"Greg, a young agent with the Pubic Unit Brigade (PUB), is conducting random checks in an effort to uncover fake blondes. One day, he fells in love with a suspect"

MoSe, it's called pear shaped.

And Greg's adventure can only end badly.

MoSe
16-01-2007, 13:02:30
Venom, you're right, but Alanis Morrissette is e.g. pear shaped, whereas my cowie is very incredibly extremely pear-shaped, like an upside-down lollipop, with the torso as the stick!

So, what are you going to do when you get into your first fight in Vietnam, just 5 minutes after landing? You notice, that in fact you didn't know her at all. She is violent, bitchy, and definitely PMSing all over your face. Plus, probably a communist too.

But that's OK, because it was you, who booked a flight to Vietnam after 36 hours of knowing someone. Because it felt so natural. Yess... maybe love at first sight? Isn't it like that always, but then you notice it was only crush and wanting to fuck at first sight after all, with a sprinkle of intellectual brain picking need as well?

Maybe it turns out she's a lesbian, and was just going through a phase, or that she's a really ugly drunk, and likes to drink a lot. Maybe her ass smells really bad, and she always farts when having sex, because she gets so relaxed? Maybe she even takes an accidental dump when riding, it happens you know. Maybe it just happens all the time with her? Or maybe, just maybe, her pussyfarts actually smell. What do you do then, Greg, what do you do?

Well, warnings are now given. I encourage you to go ahead though, life is a ride and it's all about enjoying it, so take a chance. You never know, she might be the one or she might be the opposite of that, but take a chance, should be fun.

ps. you can pretend to be supercitizen between the sheets, if you do roleplaying, but as royalties I want you to tell me the smell of her pussyfarts.

Wow, that post just about broke the "Bad Idea" radar.

Reminds me of the Bad Idea jeans from SNL. Make sure you wear a pair on your trip.

at least for me, the answer is definitely no. I thought i'd experienced once. But then the feeling faded. It wasn't lust either. It just was a love that became not enough. I love them just.. i don't love them enough.

How'bout one where you wear that hat with the corks hanging from the brim, eh ?

Yeah, it'd be almost as bad as one of Venom. If they could actually get a camera with a wide enough aperture to fit him on it that is.
