“Is it no jist magic hoo the moonlicht flichters an glists ower the watter?”

Translated:

flichter: flicker.

“Isn’t it just wonderful how the moonlight flickers and glistens over the water?”

[flichter spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]

 adrift. Posted for IF on the 14th February so happy Valentine’s day.

Please don’t read too much into the symbolism in the image about how relationships work.

It was the mood I was in at the time.

According to Gary Brase, an associate professor of psychology love at first sight does not exist.

And just to take away the romance entirely.

Brase said when it comes to love at first sight, he refers to psychologist Robert Sternberg’s model of love, which consists of three components: passion or physical attraction, intimacy or confiding in another person, and commitment or intent to remain in the relationship.

The best you can hope for is attraction at first sight apparently.

I personally have to see into the eyes. For me that will cancel or confirm whatever impression has been created.
