    I'll ask you some questions about love and whatnot as please answer honestly.


    1. During your youth did you ever think about finding the right guy/girl, i.e. the person you'd spend the rest of your life with?

    2. What attracts you to a potential mate?

    3. How do/did you let someone like/love know that you like/love them?

    4. Are looks important?

    5. How do you know Mr/Mrs. Right from Mr./Mrs. Wrong?

    6. Please list your personal ideas on the subject of true love.


    Thanks for your time

    eh i normally run past these but what the hell.......... I watched when harry met sally sunday night so im feelin sappy ! :) 

    1. Yes, too much.......... thats why now I dont even worry about it, to the point of leaving it completely up to chance lol

    2. She has to be able to keep up with me intellectually, and like to have just as much or more fun as me.

    3. Feign ignorance until she brings it up. Saves trouble of having to have DTR conversations. And I can have fun in the mean time.

    4. yes

    5. you dont until its over....... or 50 years into a good marriage

    6. True love is not glamorous...... its actually quite painful

    1. During your youth did you ever think about finding the right guy/girl, i.e. the person you'd spend the rest of your life with?
    -Yep. Found her too, or at least I hope. Way things are going it will likely work out that way.
    2. What attracts you to a potential mate?
    -She has to be smart. And when I say smart I mean not stupid like 99% of the women my age (21).
    3. How do/did you let someone like/love know that you like/love them?
    -I tell her every day, and do things for her because I want to, not because she asks. I treat her with respect.
    4. Are looks important?
    -You're obviously not going to want to be with someone you don't find attractive.
    5. How do you know Mr/Mrs. Right from Mr./Mrs. Wrong?
    -With Mrs. Right, you don't have to tell yourself she's Mrs Right. You just know.
    6. Please list your personal ideas on the subject of true love.
    -You can't go looking for it. You'll know when it finds you.

    1. Only sometimes

    2. Shallow as it may be, I'll go for looks first (based on my gut instinct that hasn't failed me yet)

    3. Haven't had to, but I'd imagine I'll use words.

    4. See number 2.

    5. She who deals with all my quirks and still manages to love me wins.

    6. Do I think it exists? Yes. Have I found it? No. Do I think I will? If I don't fuck things up with what I'm currently going after, I may. If not, I may just say "fuck it" and stay single.

    1. You're young, don't bother with it.

    2. A nice tail.

    3. Well I think we can learn a lot from the animals for this. They're good at showing affection.

    4. For me, not really. But that's because I'm in to... costumes of sorts. You... you wouldn't understand.

    5. Mrs. Right wouldn't judge me for simply expressing my true inner-self. Mrs Wrong would be ignorant and purrrrrsecute me.

    6. The more you look for it the less likely you are to find it.

    What is love?

    I don't know why you're not fair. I give you my love, but you don't care. So what is right, and what is wrong? Gimme a sign.

    This...

    As for the questions, not sure I'm qualified to answer them, though I'll give it a shot :D 

    1. During your youth did you ever think about finding the right guy/girl, i.e. the person you'd spend the rest of your life with?
    Used to, now I don't really think about it. It'll happen when it happens.

    2. What attracts you to a potential mate?
    Several different things.

    3. How do/did you let someone like/love know that you like/love them?
    It really depends on the person in question. Though I've learned several different ways not to.

    4. Are looks important?
    To a certain degree, yes.

    5. How do you know Mr/Mrs. Right from Mr./Mrs. Wrong?
    While I haven't found Mrs. Right, yet, I do know this. You'll just know.

    6. Please list your personal ideas on the subject of true love.
    It's different for everybody. Some people are actually destined to stay alone their whole lives. It's really something that's truly different for everybody.

    This has the potential to be the most cliche-ridden thread ever.

    What the hell, here's my input:

    1. During your youth did you ever think about finding the right guy/girl, i.e. the person you'd spend the rest of your life with? Never really cared about those things.

    2. What attracts you to a potential mate?Looks and (seriously) a good personality

    3. How do/did you let someone like/love know that you like/love them? For my current girlfriend, I got really drunk and asked her to a movie.

    4. Are looks important?Yes and no. I usually have to be physically attracted to someone before I'm interested. However, I've met girls in the past that have defied that reasoning and won me over with their personalities.

    5. How do you know Mr/Mrs. Right from Mr./Mrs. Wrong?You don't until you've been with them for awhile. I've been with my current girlfriend for four years and I can't imagine being with anyone else! That wasn't the way I felt when we first started dating, though.

    6. Please list your personal ideas on the subject of true love. I think love is possible. I live with it every day. I don't like the romantic idea of there being "One True Love". I say this because a lot of people will waste their lives looking for a mystical ideal that, in my opinion, is unattainable. Love is great. It is also hard work sometimes. If someone is trying to find a situation where there are never any arguments, disagreements, or hurt feelings they are only fooling themselves and as a result could be missing out on something great. Just my :2c:

    Sometimes.

    2. What attracts you to a potential mate?

    Looks, sense of humor and inteligence.

    3. How do/did you let someone like/love know that you like/love them?

    Words, acts.

    4. Are looks important?

    For me, yeah. sorry if I offend people, but in this case I´m honest about that.

    5. How do you know Mr/Mrs. Right from Mr./Mrs. Wrong?

    Can´t awnser that.

    6. Please list your personal ideas on the subject of true love.

    It´s a very wide and variable topic.

    FYI I'm still young so I'll post what I can.

    1. Yes all the time. (even if i'm young >.>)

    2. Kindness, a good personality.

    3. I tend to just ask them out or don't at all. >.>

    4. They matter. I mean they don't have to be a slammin hottie.

    5. Can't to young.

    6. I haven't felt it yet. I thought I did once. But that was just childish love.

    1. During your youth did you ever think about finding the right guy/girl, i.e. the person you'd spend the rest of your life with?

    No; unfortunately I was stupid/blind/rejectful of the endless possibilities of life and was sure I'd found them already.

    2. What attracts you to a potential mate?

    Personality. I like people with open minds who've had experiences in life, who've explored themselves (MENTALLY YOU PERVS), and who'll share those things with me. A good sense of humor is especially helpful (especially if it's dark and/or perverted.) Also find myself attracted to crass-natured, jaded, "had it with everything" types... probably because I relate so damn well ;) 

    3. How do/did you let someone like/love know that you like/love them?

    Flat out say it. Spent too long playing the whole "hee hee" flirting game; if you want to make your kill then you've got to sink your teeth in before it runs off into the woods.

    4. Are looks important?

    In the long run, looks are only good for getting someone's attention in the first five seconds they see/meet you. If the love is real then your honey will love and want you no matter what you look like.

    5. How do you know Mr/Mrs. Right from Mr./Mrs. Wrong?

    You don't until you get to know someone. Mr. Right will always be there for you, want to talk about it, ask you how your day was, know your interests and put up with them (even if it doesn't interest them or outright scares them :lol ), send you little love notes to pick you up when you're feeling down, and know when to back away slowly when you've had enough. Mr. Wrong will DEMAND to know where you were/who you were with/what you were doing rather than how your day was, act as if his day was more important than yours, never make any attempts at helping you with things (unless it benefits him of course), and will push you to your breaking point just because he can.

    6. Please list your personal ideas on the subject of true love.

    True love is a wild beast that no man will ever tame; it comes and goes as it pleases, and if it likes you it will stick around. Feed it and it will grow and stay; starve it and it'll become unhealthy and run off. Try to leash it and it will become angry. Ignore it and it'll have no time left for you.

    Love is when two people decide there's no one else they'd rather fuck.

    True story.

    Love is when you've beaten down the other person emotionally to the point that he or she think they can't do better than you.
