Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Ah, love. It’s such a delicious feeling. But not in the way that pizza is delicious. Or Japanese food. Or mustard. It’s delicious like the most perfect cake, or an ice cream sundae, or a piece of pie. Love is sweet.

That’s why, when you love someone, you might say you’re sweet on them. Being sweet on someone often implies romantic love, but you can be sweet on your friends, too. Often you feel sweet on someone in the early stages of a relationship. It’s like a crush. Being sweet on someone is having all those first, exciting, sugary feelings.

Solange Knowles’ son feels this excited kind of love for his cousin, Blue. You can probably imagine a young kid just being so full of sweetness and love for the new daughter of his aunt, Beyonce. He probably just wants to play with her and be with her all the time. He’s sweet on her.

Describe a time that you were sweet on someone. What did it feel like?

This topic reminds me of someone in Australia and just happens to me now lol


The feeling is like.. you really cannot get mad to someone ^^


And that feeling is not over your head, or like passionate Love; it is more pure and you still can think!


It is a ‘gift’ to be able to be sweet on person.

Dear Seiyf…


I totally agree with both of you. The other one is Oscar Wilde who said lots of wise words.Some of them are here.


“Women are meant to be loved, not  understood.”

  I guess, it’s just what we all need.

Dear Seiyf…


Oh, my! Rainboy... I rememeber that picture as many others. I also remember  his comments, and the case I obeyed him when he didn’t like the color I used for my picture. I deleted it then. :) Sweet memory, really.”_


I didn’t accept his request because I was jealous and couldn’t bear his giving flowers to any women on his list.:) By the way, he took my black rose. I couldn’t imagine what for, then.:)


Oh no, I must stop. To much was said, indeed.:)


What a subject! Ebaby! You made me crazy! :)

Dear Seiyf, how much I love your words. You are a great writer. What I love most, you always understand women.:) I’m blessed to have a friend like you are. Thanks, my dear. By the way, I still miss Rainboy. Do you remember him? I was sweet on him.:)

Mostly of women prefer this topic , specially when want to describe our admire for it , each of us has a sign beauty  , God created us In a good Image .

I like when I tell my fiancee you are my sweety , she likes it , But Not Always from time to time because the Beauty isn’t everything In Our lives , There are many things are Important more than it .

I oppose the cosmetic surgery , Lots of women hide their defects under it , We are adorable and so sweets Because God love us for nothing .

I don’t Know when you ask any woman are you Beautiful she quickly answer you , true I’m the most woman is Beautiful over the world .
on the other hand many woman didn’t have any thing express about the beauty , but when you deal with her you discover How much she is Beautiful , The Beauty is exist in ourselve and souls  not in the appearance  .
