And now for something completely Different... What is love???

Baby dont hurt me, dont hurt me, no more…

Okay, besides a really cheezy song that plays over, and over, and over, and over, and, well, you get the point in “Night at the Roxbury”, what do you FIRST-A-Holics believe love is? As far as I’ve read, I dont think there was anything like this on CD yet. We know pretty much what the rest of the world (and hollywood) thinks love is, but what about us propeller heads?

Is it meeting someone who can be as geeked out as you, and yet still be cool enough to look up to? Or is it meeting a complete and total stranger once a year only to cheer for each other’s teams? Or what about meeting someone completely unlike you whom you can still relate to? There is no right or wrong answer, so let the thoughts and ideas fly! Oh, just keep it clean folks, this is a family site :stuck_out_tongue:

Wow! I get to be the first person to respond to this, I’ll try not to get too mushy. The idea of love can be soooo different depending on who you ask. Most guys have simmilar answers as do most girls. There’s a difference between loving someone and being in love with someone. You love a family member or friend but you are in love with your significant other. I have found love to be something that hits you when you least expect it. It’s not something you go looking for nor do you realize it’s coming until it hits you. It’s knowing everything about a person and seeing in them what no one else sees. I don’t think it’s the same for any 2 people. For me I’ve only really been in love with one person. He was someone I knew for 10 years before I realized that I in love with him. I had always thought of him as my best friend.

Now that I think about it why do you ask? Are you trying to figure out if you’re in love?

TO conform with simplicity: Love is one of those things…

its what ever it needs to be for you-

the one thing that is definable only by your wants and desires

In other words, The High priest has no clue. :frowning:

Actually, no, my prince already came. :slight_smile: Love is something different for everyone. For me, I found love accidentally. I met Michael during a Thanksgiving food drive almost 5 years ago. And it was love at first sight (yeah, I know a bunch of you probably don’t believe that exists). Being in love is being able to love someone for who they are. Someone who will help you through hard times and then celebrate the good times with you as well. And it worked out that I’m in love with my best friend as well. I love the person who knows me best. And the romantic in me likes to believe, love counquers all. I love you, Michael! :smiley:

Oh sure, make the rest of us feel bad.

Eh, no biggie. A friend once told The High Priest the right girl will come. So The High Priest is in no hurry.

Don’t sit back and do nothing. You might miss something. It’s like knowing pert of the future then screwing up wat shoulda been. Get it? BTW Ed, know that we know you have no idea what love is we know you can read and transfer things well. LOL

I didn’t mean to make anyone feel bad! :frowning: And Carolyn is right, don’t just sit back and do nothing. You have to go out and meet people. I just happened to meet the love of my life at the age of 14. :slight_smile: I got mine done early.

Do you mean to say that you are a narcissist? Or are you saying that you don’t think anyone will feel this way about you? Love grows when and where you least expect it.

P.S.~Ed get off the computer and out of the house. Meet people! It’ll be fun.

The High Priest does that every year at nats. Other than that, he tends to stick to himself. That’s just the way The High Priest is. Besides, what’s wrong with waiting for the right person?

There’s nothing wrong with waiting for the right person but how are you going to meet the right person if you sit inside all the time? You won’t realize it was the right person until it’s too late. Do you think the right person is going to kick your door down to meet you?

Well, you gotta count natural events like going to school. You meet people there as well.

Besides, most of the girls I know like me as a friend. And The High Priest actually finds it easier to make friends with girls. So…

Love is having that one person in your life that you know you can count on to make everything all right. That you can call anytime of the day or night and one word from their mouth will make you feel all these emotions inside of you. Love is finding that someone who whether they hate you at the time or not they still will stop and listen to your problems and try to make everything in your life alright agian. Love is an emotion that can help you overcome any obstacle in your life. It will pull you through the dark times and keep you head in check during the good times. Love is caring so much about someone that their pain can easily be felt by you. You can tell what they are thinking and feeling with only a glance. Love is everything that makes the world good, and should be cherished and protected with all your might.

That sounds god to me Pamela (as if it mattered what I think). Ed, school doesn’t really count, well it’s lame. Most people in high school are immature when it comes to stuff like that so you get make-up break-up shtuff. Most people are different outside of school anyway. Most of my friends are guys so I know that you have to go out and meet different people in order to find that right one. I feel like Dr. Laura. :eek:

The High Priest still says FIRST related events are enough, but while we’re on the subject, any other ideas?

Well, I don’t know much about RI but when I used to live in Virginia we used to have this place called The Jewish Mother. It was for kids under 21 to go and dance, usually was full of high school kids. We also had pool tables and air hockey at the bowling alleys, these were very popular places to hang out. Try something along those lines, maybe a coffe shop, it really depends on your preferences. Or, when school starts go to sporting events.

The High Priest already goes to all the sporting events.

Yes but when you go do you talk to people other tan the few around you or do you make a point of talking to many people. Also, do you jump around cheering for your team. At my high school games here was always the group who came drunk and did nothing but yell. They were always fun to be around when you’re sober because you can laugh at them and they think you’re laughing with them.

Well, The High Priest is in the band. Yes he does jump up and down cheering (football fan). But usually, he talks to the people around him. Ironicly, The High Priest plays the flute, and is surrounded by girls. Just none that he can relate to well.
