Can one be madly and smartly in love at the same time...?
Wasn't it Socrates that first touched on this subject in "The Phaedrus of Plato"?
"Falling" in love instils you with a sense of helplessness. Crazy & wonderful in the short term.
If it's going to last longer, then Wocca prefers "Standing" in love. Both having their feet firmly on the ground, mutual understanding & trust, agreeing to disagree when necessary, but most importantly ... "standing" together in times of crisis
Wocca? You just made most of the females on the forum swoon

Wocca? Could be the makings of a new "Wocca" thread, but it's most unlikely to attract positive replies & create a Wocca fan club.
That is beautiful, Wocca. Standing firm and commited in love, especially during the rough patches that are inevitable. I like it. I asked about being madly and smartly in love because that's how I feel - abandoned in the happiness and rightness of it, yet basing my choice on a rather difficult but so very necessary recovery from a past love.
That is, I picked "smart" but I feel giddily mad, at times... In the end, though, it is about remaining standing.
For me being in love is saying "I love you" to another person!
Have done that twice so far.
Was that twice to the same person?
No, I said it to two different guys and it was both times brave me saying it before them.
Wow Steff, you are brave! It takes a lot of courage to say it.
I've only uttered "I love you" to 2 people, but in retrospect I was only in love with one of them. The other one was my first "real" boyfriend at the age of 15. I really did think I was in love at the time though, completely head over heels, kind of funny when I think about it now. My "true love" turned out to be someone totally incompatible with me, talk about irreconcilable differentces!! I struggled for many years to make the relationship work but it was just not meant to be. A few weeks ago I met someone whom I had very strong feelings for, VERY strong, even though we knew each other for a very brief period of time. But the timing was wrong and there was a huge age and geographical gap that would have been difficult to overcome. This thread is making me depressed, damn it.
