Campus Lovin’: Student on the street

Sahil MehtaBiomedical EngineeringSophomore

Love is…like music, completely abstract. “We’re just two lost souls, swimming in a fish bowl, year after year” – Pink Floyd, “Wish you were Here”

Do you believe in love at first sight?Yes.

Describe your perfect date:Dinner at a table up on the mountains at a secluded point, watching the sun set.

Worst date:I once took my girlfriend out for dinner. I had the food planned, the music that was going to play was a bunch of her favorite songs, and just as we walked in, there was a fire at the restaurant!

How do you know he/she is “the one?”If she laughs with me.

One word: Valentine’s Day is…special.

Love is…you cannot see it. You cannot touch it. You just feel it.

Do you believe in love at first sight?No…because I have never been.

Describe your perfect date:Go to the beach, restaurant, bar or stay at home.

Worst date:We went to the hot springs. The place was so far away so we were driving for four hours. Finally, when we arrived, it was closed. So we took four more hours to go back!

How do you know he/she is “the one?”She/he is the one because YOU think she/he is the one.

One word: Valentine’s Day is…<3

Love is…Contagious, so get vaccinated.

Do you believe in love at first sight?Only with material things. If it’s a person you might like them this season, but like white, you won’t like it after Labor Day.

Describe your perfect date:No awkward silences — you can only fill up so much time with awkward laughs and eye avoiding for it to be good.

Worst date:I slipped on ice once.

How do you know he/she is “the one?”Still loves you even when you’re cranky

One word: Valentine’s Day is…Not for the nice guys who finished last.

Love is…Devoting your life, thought and cares to an individual.

Do you believe in love at first sight?No, love takes time to cultivate to the same level as one another.

Describe your perfect date:It really doesn’t matter what we do, as long as we both enjoy it, and most importantly — each other.

Worst date:Something that one of the people is uninterested in or not having fun doing — it can’t be just one-way.

How do you know he/she is “the one?”When you decide there could never be another who will make you feel the same way.

One word: Valentine’s Day is…expensive.

Ashley GullicksonUndeclaredFreshman

Love is…not a feeling to be felt, a lesson to be learned. It is a bond between two people that separates them from the world around them.

Do you believe in love at first sight?No, lust.

Describe your perfect date:A casual dinner where you can laugh and talk as much as you want. Then bowling where you actually compete against one another and poke fun at the one who loses. Followed by a late movie with lots of popcorn, ending totally in love.

Worst date:I had one guy try to come on to me way too much, way too fast.

How do you know he/she is “the one?”Because when he isn’t with me, my world is not complete. I feel safe and complete when he holds me. He is my best friend as well as my boyfriend.

One word: Valentine’s Day is…special
