why is it ........??

..... That when your heart is taken and you are happily in a relationship - that all of a sudden a million and one other peopel suddenly start flirting and declaring there love for you???

Is it because you exude that happiness and confidence or what - i dont believe i have changed much in my current relationship - but all these peopel are flirting with me and stuff and well its very flattering - but why werent some of them around when i was single???

Answers on a postcard please, or alternatively in this thread

How would you feel
If i was to kneel
Right down, at your feet
Right now?

Probably because people are fascinated by what is "forbidden" or "not done".

No just cos they care for/love you but don't dare to say it or something and then when you say you're happily taken, they realise it's maybe too late for them and they finally dare telling you their real feelings.

Because life is just a big joke, and this is one of it's many punchlines.

Because desperation is not sexy

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Indeed. I have often noticed how my female friends sometimes seem embellished by a kind of special grace which betrays their love - only not for me.

Dahveed has a point. Also, I might find it less difficult to tell someone that I love her if I knew that she was deeply involved in a relationship. Not because I don't want to become involved, but probably and more simply because I'd think that my feelings can't harm her bearing no consequence.
