What is Love?

What is Love?

"Do you love him?”  My Spanish friend asked.  I was in Madrid, talking to my friend about a man I’d gone out with a couple times and was crushing on. “Love him?”  I answered.  “I barely know him.” “Madre mia,” my friend said.  “I’ve been in love with a woman for years and I’ve never even spoken to her.”  Life is different in Europe, as is love.  There, you take two hours to savor every meal.  Lounge in cafés until dawn contemplating the universe.  Open your heart to the beam of light coming from another person’s soul and know you love them instantly.  Maybe you know immediately, maybe you know in a year, but no clock ticks to let you know when it’s “appropriate” to feel it.  Love shows up when it feels like showing up. Europeans know there is no escape from the senses, you don’t choose when feelings come.  Life brings suffering you can’t protect yourself from, just as it brings ecstasy.  So just live it.

Put up or get out. Men who drink.

Girls please advise, my guy suffers with blackouts when he drinks. He knows it is a major issue and is trying to do SOMETHING about it, but the only way to solve this is to stop altogether which he does not seem to be prepared to do. It is wearing me out emotionally.

BABY, where do we stand?

BABY, where do we stand?

I want to know where do we stand? I mean since I meet you we have had our ups & downs, we deal them [i believe] the right way. We're still standing strong.We are pretty open about things & get along so great. I just want to know if is it going some where or is just a fairy tail for the mean time.

Holy Toledo!
