I Don't Believe In Love At First Sight

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 54 People

    How can you fall in love with someone you just

    I don't believe in evolution, it is a theory full of holes, but more importantly, it can't explain who started it all, and it does not give credit to the creator.
