15. When I was infatuated and naive enough to believe the chemicals!
I have been in love in the past, but looking back I believe that myself and the women were infatuated at the time we said "I love you" the first time, because it was WAY too early. The love probably came a bit later, but I didn't know it at the time. Even as a jaded older man at 34, I ALMOST said those words to the last one, but recognized that it was just infatuation.
