Bocconcini was not a Composer

The British may be a nation of music lovers, but they are clueless when it comes to classical composers, a survey revealed today. One in three people (33%) have never listened to classical music and 4% of those surveyed wrongly identified Bocconcini – small Italian cheese balls – as a composer. Read more >>

OK - let's change the perspective here for a moment; supposing someone said that they believe in Mayla at first sight?...

OK - as you were...

Best,

Perhaps for her you were Smiley.  I think it's possible to really know these things very quickly, and sometimes whether that's true or not, the connection can still be very convincing.  And, some people are looking for this in particular ways, too.  Of course, it's a different story if it's one-sided vs. mutual.

I certainly don't have all the answers, but it seems that both of these parts have to do with overall life views, values, priorities, and goals.  While those may not precisely match up exactly with somebody else's, it's important that there is a compatibility.  Personally, I am happy anyway that you stuck with what matters to you and what you feel is important for your own development and growth, and in particular I am glad that you did the competition, since it seemed it was important to you!

Yeah Smiley I listen to you always with an open ear and mind Smiley But yes, there was much more going on in this case that I can't write here, that made a relationship totally impossible for me, though it first looked like we had like 80% common interests, and though she and I even might, at some point in time, meet each other and perhaps have a friendship. It wasn't only that thing with the competition, that was only one little symptom. And those other things made me so angry that I exploded, not outwardly, but inwardly. And really heavyly!  Shocked

*Bob falls in love with nachos and salsa at first sight.*

Actually it's not really first sight.  I've seen them before.  And it' not really love.  More like hunger.

*Bob eats those nachos.*

I don't think you want them now.  Or to see them.

But you can have them when I'm done with them.  Haha.

I think I get what you mean Mayla. There was this girl I knew once. I don't know why I liked her, but something in me thought I knew something hidden deep in her.

Well the girl broke my heart as always the stories with introverts like me, but the point of my sobby story: love at first sight is a beautifull thing, even if it is not returned. Maybe it is the humanity we love that we find in that special person rather than wanting them.

I believe in more, always more (except human love, at least at the time) The more I believe, the more my words disappear. Music gets stronger but words do disappear.

Oh yeah I forgot about food, drooooooool.

Human love is complicated, I think true love is where you are willing to have the good times but also expect and work out the bad ones. How often are people's perspective so bias that they only want the good times and as soon as something puts a rock in the way they give up and run away! We must be able to clash as well as we love. I guess that is why there is so many divorces, sad really. You will never find a human to love where you ONLY have good times with, it is just not possible ever. I also think that would be rather bland and boring and unchallenging and unrewarding and and....

yes!!!

kind of like a sexy voice on the phone

more like lust if sight is taken literally, i couldnt image feeling much from just a glance of someone.

though pedantic, even though you infer meeting and talking, then ofcourse.

but really...whos the guy huh.



i find the back is worse off in that position and hence i keep jolting awake (lots of experience at work) so stupidist invention is likely a candidate, right up there with an electronic keyboards that can play 200 sounds (and not any of them well)
