Ah! The feeling that comes when you have been completely bowled over by someone, when you begin to realize that you are, indeed, falling in love. When the presence of the object of your affection in the vicinity causes your heart rate to shoot up, make your palms go all sweaty and there is a swooping sensation in the pit of your stomach not unlike the one you get on a roller coaster ride. You begin humming tunes you would otherwise have loathed while doing the most mundane of things and suddenly develop a taste for romantic ballads. You stare out into nowhere a lot building castles in the air. You then jolt out of your reverie only to find that you have been smiling doltishly at your rather puzzled professor for the past five minutes while he has been droning on and on about analysis of short circuit symmetrical faults. Everything around you seems much more beautiful and everyone, suddenly, seem much more nicer. You even find it in your heart to forgive the silly girl (who was previously just a bitch), who has always spread nasty rumors that revolved around you and cosmetic surgery. (After all, she doesn’t have this wonderful feeling coursing through her veins like you do…no wonder she is bitter….the poor thing!) It is pure bliss, this feeling. But as always trouble always lurks around the corner. You wake up one morning and realize that the person around whom your world seems to revolve doesn’t even have an inkling of your existence. That brings to end this blissful journey and you plunge in to the misery of ‘Will he even like me……’ business. So before you make that plunge, HALT! Consider the possibilities- you might go ahead and win this person’s heart and live happily ever after(if there is such a thing) or you might end up having your heart broken and wallow in self-pity for a very long time. So don’t leave the confines of this blissful territory. Savor every moment of it. Let the warmth of this feeling wash over you., because ten years from now you are going to look upon this and cherish the memory of how you fell in love with your soul mate or if things don’t end on a happy note, you’ll smile nostalgically at the romance that almost was….
