    " However I realize that this type of love is extremely shallow. The more you know about the person, the more qualities they have that's unattractive. Yet, I love the shallow stages of a relationship. I've been married/ divorced, hit, cursed, called names...etc. So being single...

    That moment, that millisecond.

    Something at first sight

    I am an old guy, I've been through the mill and around the block more than once, I thought that love at first sight was a romantic illusion, a symptom of a mind in need, or perhaps two minds in need, but now I'm not so sure. I can't call my experience 'Love' at first sight, but...
