dear love artist,
First of all, Thanks for the compliment on my girls and for such a thorough reply! I love learning.
The reason that I ask is because it seems as if anyone that I date seems to tell me that within weeks of knowing me and I question the validity. I realize that I should just chill and see where it takes me providing I'm interested.
So I was just wondering if females are more likely to catch those "feelings" first.
Artist Formerly The Most Electrifying Man in Sales
I have to say it makes me a little bit sad to hear that women are saying they love you within three weeks but then again, you were the most electrifying man in sales . . . :) . . not sad that they are saying it, but sad that maybe it makes the words less worth it, somehow . .
I have to say that those words come out of my mouth so easily too . . and it is not as if I don't mean them, but sometimes they just bubble out before I even realize that I have said them.
Over the years I have become more present with myself and I have become very close with the sensation that births those words. It is love, of course it is, but we all have learned -- culturally, through movies, songs & tv as well as from watching each other -- we have learned a certain monumental & melodramatic meaning connected to the words i love you that has a very specific storyline, and that's what gets us in trouble, that's what scares us (being afraid of that storyline) or gets us into situations before we are ready (really really wanting that storyline).
So, to answer your question, I think the seed of that falling in love thing is something beautiful we all have inside & it grows like wildfire under certain conditions & it seems like women (a lot of women & particularly the women you seem to be meeting) have really stellar conditions to grow that feeling (& less impulse control on voicing it).
You don't seem to be complaining . . .
