Or he could be a pick-pocket. HE has got hold of her bags.
THIS is more like it. Same photographer.

Of course, for a more "warped" sense of true love, see the ingenious motion picture by Vincent Gallo -- Buffalo '66. I use the term ingenious because it's one of those Indie movies you'll either love, or once it's over you'll sit there wondering why you just wasted 2 hours of your life.
But, in my opinion, this is a great movie and on my top 10.

That's quite a film. It's a fascinating look at some truly damaged individuals. Triumph of the human spirit, and all. I saw it on the Sundance channel, missed the first 10 minutes. Should rent it and watch the whole thing sometime.

Into music? Just a few off the top of my head:
Coldplay - Yellow
Mazzie Star - Fade Into You
and of course...
Louis Armstrong - Kiss to Build a Dream On
Can't go wrong with Louis. Make her a mixed CD. Wait a minute, why am I giving love advice? Wow, I have to get my own radio show or something.

Can true love come more than once in life?

hmm... over a time I realize that there are different kinds of love, in basics all remain same but from outside they look different.
so yes.. true love you can find more than once.

Love is always true it can never be false, if it is not true then it is not love at all.

Excellent comment, true words.
As to different kinds of love...
Some people love icecream, many love chocolate.
Would you put those as being identical to love for a partner?
Or love for an ideal?

Is love transitive? I love X,X loves her daughter so I love X's daughter?I m trying to fall in love but no success so I m thinking this way.

This is my experience of true love.
My wonderful man sadly lives 200 miles away from me and we spend a lot of time apart, so I tend to have two seperate experiences.
When he is around...
I literally tingle all over,
My heart feels ten times bigger,
I can't take my eyes off him,
I feel like there's nobody else in the world but us.
When he's not around....
My heart aches,
my stomach cramps,
I have no concentration at all,
I feel in pain.
I've never been happier in my life
For me at least it's a complete paradox, all the symptoms sound bad but I am happy and I'll gladly endure them for eternity.
A year ago I would never have believed I could feel this happy purely because I've met a man, but then I would never have believed I would fall in love at first sight, I did, he did, it's the biggest shock to the system I have ever had but it was and still it fantastic.

Sameer!. I agree on this, but i am wondering why even the true love seems to break after some time. There is one good movie in Tamil named "Autograph" (will be soon re-maked in Hindi with Aishwarya), which shows love in the age of 10-16, then 16-23, then after 24 etc.,
I believe 'true love' keeps us away from the so-called material world, but if its can happen more than once that i don't see a 'true' in it.
Well!.. We are simple humans (atleast me )

Angela, you are great that you can tell about your personal love in public internet, which i never managed. Something stops me.
Its so great that you had 'love at first sight'.

Go on, Balaji, tell us, your friendly ranchers, what�s bothering you?
The crystal ball that I borrowed (err.. a long time ago) from my mates desk says, you are a homely, obedient south Indian boy, working away from home, chatting up girls on way to work, at work, after work and on weekends, but after a short period of relationship, you can't decide if you should go forward with that or not? Did any of them accuse you of fear of commitment? Where as, you were not afraid of commitment, but worried about how the whole this will go down with folks back in India? Have you started wondering if you can ever accept the usual Indian system of arranged marriage, you feeling the fear of disappointing your parents trying you explain how you didn't mean to hurt them?
Well, I think my crystal is watching too much bad telly � anyway, was that close?

Ashok!. Yes! you were atleast to some extent and I can bet your predictions can fit to many Indians(or even other citizens) who were away from home. Isn't it ?? If not then I really appreciate your memory and crystal ball.
Good ya!. I'm sure you can be a good psychologist.
BYW I also like Amma, and i have met her more than 3 times.
Honestly i don't have much personal to share for this context or topic.

Changing display name, Ooo!.. Paul(t-boss) will kill me.
Insisiting on Love marriage.. Great!..
BYW don't worry about finding one and don't search for it. You will get it one day, may be even now someone might be loving you secretly. Open your eyes.

Yep, I agree, that is the general (sad) state of affairs for a good percentage of Indians working outside! However, my crystal ball was very clear about your situation, because most of the time it�s just a mirror. :roll:
Now now, tell us whats bothering you! You can start a different thread with a different name, you know, its okay in MD, and am sure Paul wouldn't be mad at you for that!
Ashok.
PS: Yeah, we have a small group here who know about Amma, and we do some auctions, yoga classes etc to raise funds for charity. It�s a great feeling to be give something in return for everything in life, and great to be a part of such a big and nice family � there must be a local group where ever you are, and they could use your help � go on, do your bit!

hmm .. when you love someone, you love all the things of your lover(lover could be anything from your pet to your sis to your boyfriend to your girlfriend to ... your car). Whatever it do, whatever it not do, whatever it wears, whatever hairstyle it has everything ..... so if you love X, and X loves her daughter .. you will love her daughter also ..

I beleive true love can come more than once in life. But I myself have started loving a girl (my first love) only for the last 3 months...so am not an enthusiast on this topic.

There are 5 or 8 time zones between my boyfriend(he's the first in my life) and me for now. It was almost love impossible, but it happened naturally and we don't want to give up.
I used to worry about many things, he brought peace into my mind.
If I don't hear his voice for more than three days, I cannot hear whatever the professors say in the classes, sitting there just writing down the notes on blackboard like a robot. I visit weather.yahoo.com everyday to check out the weather condition in his place. He got sick pretty often over there, my heart ached so much when heard his cough on the phone. When I went out traveling in the countries nearby, I was always extremely quiet, telling him whatever I saw I heard I felt, in heart.
It's not an easy relationship, however it makes me believe life is wonderful. We are both alone, but not lonely.

In 1999, when I was alone in America, I found this girl in India on match.com. We became good friends, and wrote detailed emails to each other for 3 years, and were great friends. We finally met in India for the first time in mid-2002. It was just a casual meeting - we knew each other for a long time anyway. Two months later, my parents who were looking for a girl for me, introduced me to my future wife. We wrote and chatted for 4 months, and I decided she was the right girl for me - and married her.

A month before my marriage, this old friend of mine was distraught, and revealed that she was in love with me. It was bitter, but what could I do? What was pure friendship for me ended abruptly. I hope it's not my fault.
