I believe in true love, in the sense that I can love someone truly and deeply, and be loved that way by them in return. That connection can deepen and grow and change and become a richer and fuller thing over time. I do not believe in "one-true-love". I've already had at least 2 relationships that are categorized in my head as "true love". Both have helped me to be the person I am today, though one was much more destructive for me when it ended.

That's the one that has me believe in love at first sight. I'd talked with this person online for 2 weeks, but when we met face-to-face for the first time, I felt like I'd been struck by a bolt of lightning. I'd made a strong connection with him when chatting online too, but it was nothing compared to what I felt when we first laid eyes on each other.

For almost all of my other relationships, there hasn't really been love at first sight. There has been a sense of connection, a kinship, a sharing, but not love. Sometimes love follows for me after I dream about a person. Sometimes, it's just seeing them in a different way, maybe *really* seeing them when they've just been a background presence in my life up til then.

"Love defines its boundaries, with limitless shapes and countless forms..." - Gaia Consort. So too does falling in love. It can happen in so many ways, from attraction and crush, to love-at-first-sight, to gentle growing together and realization after years of friendship, to sudden catalyst-shifts like a supersaturated solution instantly crystalizing. These days, I don't want to idealize any particular form of love, or any particular way of finding love. I want to feel joy in any form that comes my way.

So, our internet at Gestalt is currently NOT WORKING. I *think* this will be fixed by sometime on Saturday, but I'm not sure. I will only have reliable 'net access through about 3pm today. If you want to make any plans with me, or let me know about something for this weekend, please either comment here *BEFORE* 3pm today, or call my cell phone. I will screen comments on this post. Thanks!
