Love is insidious sometimes

Whether or not you are prepared to fall in love, or are avoiding the complications that it can bring to your life, and no matter how hard you try to stop yourself, when klove is in the offing it is almost always successful in binding you emotionally to another human being. I am leary of love and really want nothing to do with being in love again so quickly after my engagement was called off but like it or not I seem to have found another lovable guy who loves me too. So ready or not here it comes. Do you think there is any way to gainsay falling in love or any way to hold a part of yourself backfrom that brink so that in the end if it doesn't work out it doesn't hurt as much?

Good topic. I've met people (women) that I knew from the get go would be "trouble" if I got to know them, so I'd avoid situations where there was any chance of running into these people again. It seemed like the more I tried to avoid, the more often I'd end up having contact with them. Eventually they'd end up coming to my place with a mutual friend & before to long they'd start stopping by on their own. After that it was just a matter of time before I realized I was "liking" this person more than the other females in my life. That feeling of like grew until I realized, like it or not, I'd gotten to where I, or so I thought, loved this person. As time went on those feelings were verified quite often. This latest incident came to an end because she had to move out of state rather suddenly & eventually found someone else to get involved with. Even though I knew that the more time that passed before one of us could get to where the other one was, chances were she'd meet somebody & that would be the beginning of the end of us. I was prepared & expecting it to happen, and when it did there was still just as much hurt as at any other time. It was yet another example of how long distance relationships will sooner or later fall apart, no matter how much contact was present throughout. But that's a whole new topic of it's own.
