Loving A Stranger

Loving a Stranger

Her:

Have you ever fallen in love with a stranger?

Him:

I’m not sure what you mean...

Her:

Yes well... neither do I really, It’s hard to explain. Perhaps its not the correct term for it.

Him:

What? Falling in love? Or stranger?

Her:

I don’t know? One of those; perhaps both.

Him:

We are all strangers at one point are we not?...Speaking of strangers, I don’t even know your name.

Her:

Would that really make a difference?

Him:

We wouldn’t be strangers anymore.

Her:

Do you really believe knowing my name would make me less of a stranger?

Him:

It is one step closer.

Her:

Some people remain strangers forever.

Him:

So that’s what you meant when you asked me if I’ve ever fallen in love with a stranger?

Have I loved someone and then found out they were a complete stranger. Totally different from what they appeared to be?

Her:

Precisely!

Him:

I think that has happened to all of us. I believe we all show only what we want other people to see. We are never really ourselves.

Her:

Are you being yourself now?

Him:

Well, a more intellectual version of myself.

Her:

Why? Is it to impress a stranger?

Him:

An attractive stranger…

Her:

So would you call that loving a stranger?

Him:

Love? That’s a bit fast wouldn’t you say?

Her:

Is it? That depends on your definition of love.

What is love?

Him:

I don’t know. It’s an emotion.

Her:

Anger is an emotion.

Him:

Anger can be love.

Her:

Can it? Or is it a response?

Him:

Love is also a response to something.

Her:

Something like what?

Him:

I don’t know... attraction?

Her:

Then what is an attraction?

Him:

You know? If you keep doing this we will never finish this conversation.

Her:

I’m just learning your way of seeing the world.

Him:

Fine. Attraction is that in which a person feels compatible physically or mentally towards another.

Her:

I liked that. Thats a good definition of the word. So, do you believe in love at first sight or is that just an attraction?

Him:

I believe it’s an attraction and from that attraction, comes love.

Her:

So, you say it´s a response to an attraction?

Him:

I believe it´s response to that attraction. It´s as it´s commonly described; an emotion.

Her:

A response how?

Him:

You´re doing it again.

Her:

Yes. So in order to love someone you have to be attracted to them?

Him:

That is the theory.

Her:

So just now as you saw me? You were attracted to me.

Him:

Yes, I was.

Her:

For some people that’s love at first sight.

Him:

I suppose.

Her:

But not for you?

Him:

People confuse love at first sight with physical attraction.

Her:

Do they? And what about mental attraction you talked about that too.

Him:

Yes, it’s when you mentally connect with another person.

Her:

And do you feel mentally attracted to me?

Him:

I’m still here in a bar talking about this... so I guess I must be.

Her:

So, as you put it... love is an emotion. Love is a response to a physical or mental attraction towards someone else. In this case, you’ve confessed to be both mentally and physically attracted to me.

Him:

You forgot about compatibility.

Her:

And what is compatibility?

Him:

Compatibility is being able to match those attractions with your personality

Her:

And do you feel our personalities matched?

Him:

They did.

Her:

So what if after tonight you would never see me again? Then, years later, you walk into a bar and a person asks have you ever fallen in love with a stranger, what would you say?

Him:

Once.
