G. Henle Publishers employ a variety of techniques in producing their beautiful scores, including software programs like Sibelius. But very few people know just how involved the art of music engraving was in the days before modern music printing technology. Read more >>

And after a while she was not only "in love at first 'sight'" but also "convinced" that I must be the love of her life.

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.

Quote
But then she started to say things like "oh we have time to practice for the rest of our live, now we should care for relationships, because that's all that will remain. And you think you need to realize yourself in the material world by taking part in a competition, that's materialistic" And more and worse stuff like that. Needless to say, that not only I was gone as fast as the wind, but that she had spoiled it with me for once and forever.

I am not willing to be a wheel in prearranged life concepts that others make up for me, to fill up the huge black holes they have in their lives while they behave like those huge black holes were a sign of enlightenment.

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!

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...

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

Yes, sure, listening to these reactions and learning from them anyway, one way or another, seems progressive.

 Smiley  I actually don't know exactly what to think, but it seems interesting and thought-provoking in a non-personal sense, anyway, that people can or do express love, even before ever being met and seen by certain others.  Meeting certain others may enhance or define love in new ways, but love existed already (in some degree) and could logically of course be felt, known, experienced upon a first meeting.  Don't know if that's what you intended, but, I can't help but think things through  Embarrassed.

For the magic is in the soul.

Yeah, I think there's a little somethin' somethin' going on with the soul Smiley.

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

I have red hair and some freckles ... hmmmm ... do you think he's looking for me?  Oh, I've never been to Ireland.

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 suppose it's different for different people, but yes, for me there is some element of the humanity part.  Lots of people have a sense of humanity, and some people seem noticeably special as it relates to this, too (and I don't just mean mere "charisma").  That's not all though.  

To me, love at first sight seems to be a phenomenon where something is recognized which was already in existence, and the really important part beyond the experience of "first sight" is that it exists at all - that's part of what makes the experience of "first sight" shocking.  I value the existence.

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)
