It is that moment that you just know and it is mutual. It does happen, can happen and should happen. This does not mean that you just walk along and wham a random person.. but it is that moment when a friendship shifts, when an acquaintance changes, when conversation and sharing ignites the heart, mind , body and soul. We ar made to love and be loved. Isn't that Grand? Linda
What would your reaction be if, in the middle of this instant connection, the person slapped you in the face or puked all over you?

I beg your pardon.
I find your reply plain rude!
Also quite obnoxious and crude.

Why? Because it clearly exposes the fallacy of the romantic myth of love at first sight?

Consider how you would answer the same questions if asked about someone you really love, such as your child. See the difference?

Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injuryit does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. (1 Cor 13:4-10)

This forum is open to all members who paid for the privilege -- no one gets to say that any particular member is not to reply to a post, Linda. Jerry is a great guy and most probably didn't mean to offend you, just point out what he sees as true in a way that would get his poiny across. There will be many views expressed on here that might be different from yours -- we all encounter that. No need to take things too personally.

Yikes, that love stuff is hard.
Wait! There's actual EFFORT involved?! rolling eyes I'm outta here. Just kidding! wink

Love is all about sacrifice. It also brings joy beyond measure. (That whole crucifixion/resurrection thing.) I have said before: my best 'love teachers' are my kids.

As Rachel has pointed out, folks are just expressing their opinions and it is probably best not to take things personally.

On that note:

The difference between a child one loves that does something socially unacceptable and an adult one loves who does something socially unacceptable is that the adult should know better. It is not a sign of genuine love versus a false infatuation. And for the record, I believe that there is a very real difference between infatuation and true romantic love. There is great wisdom in Catholic teachings, and an adult gentleman and an adult lady who approach a Catholic courtship in a way that honours each other and honours God is a beautiful thing to witness. rose

Wow! Must have been a horrible experience for you Jerry...

I do not believe in love at first sight as such, but I do believe that there could be a spark that gets someone into getting to know someone which leads to true love developing and possibly even marriage.
