A few years ago, my peers were all getting married. A few years down the road, a number are having all sorts of marital problems. I think they've caught up with me on cynicism level, haha... Just that I have more freedom to walk out. Which I want to keep for a little while more :)

Okay, we'll keep this in mind. You're not going to get away from us so easily, muahahahahaha....

Here's a suggestion...

Why don't you organize something for meeting up? :wink:

sure those weren't dates with women?

naw, probably not as there was no mention of how much rent cost, what your salary was, money stuff like that

amen! I mean, what is with that?! so counter-productive, yet so not-uncommon

have been the unwitting recipient of that a few times, but this is the first acknowledgement of if I've heard from a woman

but then I expect nothing less from WIMH....

Cause it seems that you can have this "chemistry" even on the first time you meet somebody.
If what-so-called "love at first sight" is just an infatuation which is this chemistry thing, why would people be so skeptical about it, when actually heaps would pursue to go further once they feel the chemistry whereas most wouldn't pursue if there is no chemistry at the beginning?
Can this "chemistry" thingy is more on first impression? The traits of the other person's which you notice from the way they talk, walk, behave, etc. which you fancy?

Old thread revived! But I like it. To me, simply put, chemistry is when you meet a person, and then you want to meet him/her again and again and again...Too simplified? Oh well...
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Yup, absolutely! Some people just bore you to death, some you can't figure out or don't want to, and then there'll be a few you'll get along with like a house on fire.

And then there are exceptions like me, who has chemistry going with everyone. :P
Haha, sorry I've been away so have to get cheeky, missed doing that. :wink:

I reckon one can not only have a personal troll but also a fan! :lol:

And before anybody was going to flame saying that I sounded jealous, let me say first that that kind of remark would sound sooo lame :P

Haha, I don't think Eric will appreciate being called a fan of mine, but thanks for making me feel like a movie star Kimi. Only fan I ever had was this lil' munchkin all of 4 years old. :)

Didn’t I say earlier that talking about marriage/the future is the prerogative of the women? :lol:

We women are silly, always wanting to be sure right away. Sometimes this applies to the men as well. What’s the hurry? Take it easy, slow down, have fun, flirt, enjoy yourself. If the feelings are right on both sides, your plans will merge along the way even if you never planned it that way.

Chemistry at first sight means I find the person sexually attractive but I may not act on the attraction immediately.
