What does it feel like to fall in love with someone in a short amount of time?
tynamite's avatar It doesn't feel any different than falling in love with someone who you've known for a long period of time, except that you don't have much experiences with that person to look back on.

See my answer for What's it like to be in love with someone?

When I see this question, I interpret it as "How is it possible to fall in love with someone in a short amount of time? How can you be in love with someone, if you don't know them?" I will now answer that question. I'll first quote my answer for Is it possible to love someone you don't have direct contact with?

There are certain personalities that certain people fall in love with, online or offline.

When such a person comes into contact with such a person over the internet,
their presence can be captivating, and they start to count down the hours until they come on instant messenger in their head. They feel that way, because of the way the other person makes them feel, or because the presence that the person has that engulfs them to think that there is something they can seek there.

With that said, it's possible to fall in love with someone in the first conversation that you have with them. That also explains love at first sight. As soppy and wet as that sounds, it's not so much about what they look like, but instead what they are like. Some people have to get to know someone to fall in love with someone. For other people, it's both, experience with them and also a lack of it.

This is happened to me many times, and I mean the word many relatively.

The best way to describe it, is that when speaking to someone for the first time, you feel that you have met them before. Of course you don't know them, and they are a mystery to you.

But there is a sense of familiarity and/or refuge, that you have in their presence. You've either seeked them out and have found the person you were looking for, or you can be truly yourself in their presence with no detriment, and your mere existence has them casting their light onto you, and they've got no idea that they're doing this.

So you talk refuge into their imaginary arms, chasing them, and hoping that they will feel the same.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
