How do you fall in love?

Someone was asking this, for a friend. It seems a good question!

I'm attracted/not, nearly instantly.

I don't dive all the way into the pool quite as quick, though.

You?

Yes, instant something -- attraction, chemistry, vague familiarity.  Followed by curiosity with intense observation.  Then banter establishing a dynamic.  The heart-pounding adrenaline rush.  The  beginning of a cat and mouse game.  Ah, those were the days!

@warped You don't think this could still happen?  I do!

The clincher that always sealed the deal was a momentary glimpse of vulnerability in an otherwise dynamic exterior -- the lion with a thorn in his paw.  But even before I became a covid hermit, the lions appeared to have gone extinct, or at best declawed by too many years in captivity!

@warped I met a great old man, yesterday.  All man, and alone.  Gardens for others, like I do. Strained, cooking for one.  Good looking dude. Tall and slim.  Marlboro man looking.

I'm on my way! 🙃

I'm sure they exist here too.  If I'd really been looking for one when I first moved here, perhaps I'd have gotten a job at a feed store or such to be "where the (old) boys are." But I was too focused on doing up my house, doing up a Will, managing finances and dental work and so many other pop up distractions, and I really wasn't motivated.  At all.

Life is simpler without that emotional rollercoaster.

Slowly. It’s my Capricorn and Taurus.  Love sneaks up on me. Attraction is quick though.
