I Asked 9 People The Exact Moment They Fell In Love And Some Answers May Surprise You
Charlsley Carey

James Arthur once said in his song, Say You Won't Let Go, "We drank too much, I held your hair back when you were throwing up. Then you smiled over your shoulder, for a minute I was stone, cold sober. I pulled you closer to my chest and you asked me to stay over. I said, I already told you, I think that you should get some rest. I knew I loved you then, but you'd never know cause I played it cool when I was scared of letting go. I know I needed you but I never showed, but, I wanna stay with you until we're grey and old..." So, that song got me thinking. James Arthur is singing in this song the exact moment that he fell in love with this girl. And as you can see, it wasn't something extravagant. It wasn't like she had was all done up and looking like a model, but it was a simpler time - it was when she was throwing up sick. That really got me thinking, isn't it always the small stuff that makes us fall in love with people? It's the small things that make them tick, the little quirks that stood out from anyone else you had ever had a crush on or liked and made you fall harder than you had ever for this one person. So, I took to my Facebook and I went on a questioning spree. I asked just about as many people, who were in relationships, that I could find and asked them one simple question: when was the moment you realized you were in love with your significant other? I ended up getting a bunch of answers back and here are some of the stories I got:

- M. H.

- D. D.

- K. C.

- J. J.

- J. P.

- K. C.

- C. C.

- K. M.

- S. J.


I think this just goes to show you never know when you will find love. Love always finds you in the most unexpected of times in the most unexpected of ways. It doesn't matter if you've been single for 30 years or 3 days, sometimes the love of your life is just waiting for you just around the corner. But also remember, love does not always have to be this giant and extravagant thing. Most of these stories are just simple things: phone calls at 1:30 AM, being able to wear no make up, looking into each other's eyes, spending a lot of time together, and other small things like that. None of the people said they fell in love when the person bought them a very expensive present or cleaned their whole house for them - those aren't the kinds of things that make people fall in love. Instead, paying attention to the smaller things in life really is what is key to finding just who it is that is your true love.

"I fell for you unexpectedly, but now I plan to be with you forever."

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
