Blog: A Small Part of a Survey

~ The answer I see here 10 out of 10 times is, "Lust, not love." I say poo! If the answer's so obvious then why does the question keep appearing in all these stupid surveys? I'll tell you. Someone wants to believe in love at first sight (LAFS). A lot of someones want to believe. Are they naive or un-jaded?

~ The ultimate question laying beneath it all is, "How do you know when you're in love?" The best answer I've heard is, "If you think you're in love, you are." (I wish I knew where I heard that.) Here's no attempt to quantify love. Here's no attempt to compare. It even neglects to care about love's type. It shoots straight to the heart of the matter. Love is about feelings. Spreadsheets and time tables be damned. Love's not rational that way. LAFS potentially can be every bit as real as love itself.

~ I, myself, will probably never experience LAFS, because I'm skeptical. More accurately, If I do experience it, I probably won't believe it. That said I'm slow to judge what other people believe they experience. In conclusion, poo!
