In the musical Forbidden City, the artist (portrait painter) Kate, noted that falling in love is precisely falling out of control. You will stand to lose some pride, dignity and control over the outcome.
But oh what a rush!
There is a rush of chemicals that make you feel so good when you fall in love.
As we get older, we either stop falling in love, or take longer to fall in love, or we’ve simply forgotten what it means to fall in love. It might help if we had over-active hormones, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t fall in love once past our adolescent. We just have to remember how to do it.
To fall requires one to let go. There is of course a risk in letting go, and as we get older, we learn to avoid risk, to manage risk, to minimise risk. As would any investment advisor (i.e. someone who wants your money) will tell you, risk isn’t always bad – it’s just a matter of balancing risk and potential returns.
So the next time someone piques your interest, don’t play down those feelings. Introduce yourself. Explore the possibilities of meeting for drinks. You might get rejected, but hey, you might also get a date.

Probably that’s why I’m where I am now. LOL
