Subject: Imagine Question For 3/1

How old were you when you first fell in love?

I'm not talking about finding someone especially attractive or having them make you nervous...but when you really were convinced that this ONE person had stirred you up in a way that made you feel (At least at that point in your life) that you were actually, truly, in love for the first time.

Now whether that love was returned to you or not, whether it lasted a few years, a few months, or just a couple of weeks...looking at it through your own eyes...when would you say that you experienced real 'love' for another person? I know that there are a lot of people who may write a lot of so-called relationships as 'puppy love', or a crush, or an infatuation, or simple lust...but does the feeling change all that much from the time you're a teenager, to that first college boyfriend, to your adult relationships and beyond. The formula being...attraction, plus shared interests, plus a certain closeness, plus warm tingles and fuzzies...equals love. But how can you pinpoint what love is when you're constantly changing and expanding your perspective on the idea? I mean, is it possible for a fifteen year old to know what love really is? Or is that just something that we tell ourselves while looking at the situation from the outside? And if you're 50 years old and find a partner that you adore with all your heart...what's changed? Dont you still get nervous? Are the tingles not the same? Your ideal partner requirements may have changed or expanded since you were a kid...but at the heart of it all, isn't it the same vibe deep down?

Let us know what you think! When did you first feel as though you were experiencing true 'love' for another person? What was you perspective before that, and how has your outlook changed since then?

Everybody is welcome to jump in and give us your two cents! Anonymous replies are welcome as well! Either here, or you can send them to me at Comicality@shackoutback.net (Be sure to let me know that you want your answer to be anonymous). Cool! Seezya soon!
