To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. – C.S Lewis




And it begins …

I can’t believe I finally bought a domain name. It’s time I start sharing my writings, my insights and research on this blog. I want to thank a new friend who pushed me into it. He made me feel confident about my project. I’ve been interviewing people, hearing anecdotes, love stories, hookups, flings, coincidences, magical encounters … I have been blessed to meet incredible people who opened up to me. As a hyper emphatic, I have this ability to be able to really listen to what people are saying and feeling it. I feel love when people are in love, I feel pain when they are heartbroken. It’s a gift and a curse, getting very affected by it from time to time. I’ve learned to switch off this hyper empathy symptom lately, which allows better sharing of experiences even painful and shameful ones.

I’m not a writer, I don’t have a special prosaic style and I’m not seeking to impress you with wonderful sentences. I’m just a dreamer in search for true love and magic. I want to say I LOVE you again … I want to feel LOVE and be loved in return. I DATA you is my journey to understanding the mechanism of online dating. The psychology of digital, the influence of social media, the shift we are experiencing: is the digital world creating a fantasy?
