Our essay question today was, "Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?" The answers were, for the most part, surprisingly grown up and reasonable. Answers are reprinted exactly as were written, spelling errors and poor understanding of grammar all.
"No, I really don't because you need to get to know someone before you go and try to kiss them, but if they are into you then I suggest you go at it."
"No, because I believe you have to get to know the person first because not everybody in the world is normal and safe."
(It's hard to believe he's met normal people. I've been looking for 23 years.)
(S. D. has dyslexia or some other unidentified learning disability. He's still in the gifted class)
"I do not believe in love at first sight because I think that to love someone you have to know that person. I think that at first sight you can think somebody is handsome but I do not think you can actually love her or him right when you see him or her.
Because looks are not everything needed to love someone, I think love is something that needs time to be made. =) =P"
Yes and No. I think love at first sight is a stupid thing to believe but I believe it to Romantic and true."

"I am very debatable about this. I feel like there is a thing as love at first sight, but I am not a hundred percent sure if it is real. I think it is more of "seeing it to believe it" incident."
"No I don't believe in love at first sight. I don't believe in love at first sight because I think if I did then I wouldn't be able to explore other options."
"No I dont think it is true. Because I have saw alot of hot women out there but never have I ever fell in love right at the first sight."
"I Do believe in love at first sight because it happened to me. When you have found the right person, a lot of times you will know immediately when you see them. Sometimes you don't like them and you end up with them. I also believe in it because it has happened to a lot of people I know and they are happily married."

Also, if someone would let me know where Ginger (xlifeinscrubsx) is, I haven't seen her in forever and want to know if she's okay.
