Whispers Of Love


It is said that love doesn’t ask why it simply speaks from the heart and it never explains. It doesn’t think twice, it can come all at once or it can whisper from a distance.

Some people will tell you of love at first sight, some will tell you of destiny and others will tell you of forbidden love – that’s why it’s said that love doesn’t really have to make much sense it just has to be strong.

There are some men who will see a woman at the mall, he’ll shake hands with her in a meeting or he’ll be standing behind her in a queue at the bank and without talking to her he will say to himself or to a friend “That’s my future wife and the mother of my kids” and indeed that’s who she’ll end up being. How does this happen, is it possible to fall in love with someone by just looking at them? 

Their attitude towards you
Winston Churchill once said “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” The affective feelings of liking towards you which a person gets and reflects can make a sizeable impact on how you feel about them. When a person likes you at first glance a meaningful gesture or conversation is sparked – the rest will follow.

Their behaviour
The way in which a person acts or conducts themself towards others can turn on the next person – good manners are a good social etiquette.

Their looks
Some people will tell you that the way a person’s eyes look, the way their lips are rounded or a the smile strikes a cord with them. Also personal groom, things like the way a woman wears her hair or the way a guy shaves can be appealing to some people. Again, personal style like masculine swagger sparks interest in others.

The way you look at them
It is said that eyes are windows to the soul – how you look at a person says a lot about what is going on in your mind. When you look at them with mellow eyes it sends out an invitation to “dance”.

The way they talk to you
Usually people who are loud, vulgar, arrogant and all over the place are distasteful to most people but a smooth and sincere person in talking is more acceptable to a lot of people. When a person always chooses their words wisely and also doesn’t raise their voice whenever they talk to you, then that easily turns the other person on.

A touch
The power of touch is unique – whether it is an accidental
glaze from a stranger, the strong pressings of a masseur, a gentle hold from a close someone, a reaffirming squeeze of the hand, an ‘I see you’ caress or a courage giving touch on the back. It can give power to connections, it can heal, it can be a manner of communication and it can soothe.

A touch activates the body’s vagus nerve which is intimately connected with our compassionate response. The vagus nerve is the pair of nerves that extends from the brain to the belly and passes the heart along the way – that’s how a touch can awaken love for the other person.

This is exactly how people fall in love in mysterious ways – with just a touch of a hand, a smile or a dance…
