The first half is true, and the second half may or may not be true, depending on your circumstances.
More so for women than men.
I've never really understood the quote: "You don't choose who you fall in love with" Whichever way I look at this, there *has* to be a point where we each choose who we fall in love with. To say we have no choice is to say we are (in some way) 'enchanted' into falling into love and that if it all goes wrong, then we cannot blame ourselves because we never made the choice to begin with.<br />
Personally, I don't accept that; ba<x>sed on the assumption that *everything* we do involves making a decision / choice. Why should falling in love be any different?<br />
If that makes any sense? ... and IMHO, of course, unless someone can come up with a logical answer that might persuade me differently; I am open to anyone opening my mind more on the topic :-)<br />
I would change the fall in love to attracted to. You cannot choose who to be attracted to or not - it just happens. In Western culture for the most part we choose our spouses, however many make poor choices of mates or do not understand what marriage is all about or both.
I believe it's true.<br />
I can't decide if love grows in my heart for a person or not -- I feel the way I feel, no matter how I feel about feeling the way I feel....lol.<br />
And yes, we make the CHOICE to marry someone or not! Just like, even if you feel love for someone, what you DO about/with that love is YOUR choice. =)
Yes for most of us. No for me.
Ask the guy holding the shotgun...
NOPE-cause if it were true I would choose a boatload of em'-one fer everyday I get "no not tonight"
What? As in shotgun wedding?
There is if you are that type of person to make those choices.I chose who I fall in love with and who I marry as long as the other person agrees to marry me,I can chose to fall in love w/someone that does not accept my marriage proposal though.
