no one can say how many dates or how much time it takes - especially for us - the unusual ones!
sometimes there will be an immediate, almost instant connection - and you just "click" - other times it grows slowly and sneaks up on you until you just realize one day where you are and how you feel.
IMHO - it is not so much about when it starts - but where you go with it after that. longevity, perseverance, faithfulness, growing together - are all more important than the initial feelings or the cliche of "falling in love." it's both the destination AND the journey that are important - but not so much the point of departure - though you gotta start somewhere.

As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
