Well one side (the unthinking side) certainly will believe whatever they want, depending upon the wind and how much radiation is in the air perhaps.

But it's like I said, when I see writing which is highly manipulative, open to interpretation and designed to hit the note with emotional people it is suspicious. Rewriting your needs into something more logical would help convey the message in my mind. The downside being it won't win as many "hearts"?

The truth is there are more people that "react" to words than those who actually analyze them completely.

"I want to find the love possibilities out there and expand my mind"

It's open to so many interpretations and has so much new age and personal growth lingo attached to it no one really knows what you mean. Yet many people just nod their heads, ahuh ahuh. Because it's so open it allows people to believe what they want.

Mono had brought up discussions in a previous thread about the different types of loves. I envisioned it like multiple buckets of love like filling with liquid. Each person you love, utilizes a certain bucket. They can interchange quite often, but that is why people can love multiples. I wish I had the inclination to go search for it but it made some degree of sense with me.

Even though, I believe there can be overlap as well. Or hell maybe I just read it wrong..haha

In my experience, everyone loves everyone differently and love is not necessarily diminished by loving an additional person.
