How Long Does Love Take?

Are You In Love Or Are You “In Infatuation”?

Do you believe in Love at first sight? I don’t. Sorry to kill the romance. What do you consider it love? What is infatuation? What, exactly, are you willing to do to find the man or woman of your dreams? Because, the answer to those three questions will determine how quickly you ever could fall in love.

It’s the most attractive attribute you could ever find in a partner, and the primary reason I knew Deborah was THE ONE. I fell for Deborah right on the very first beach we ever walked together.
