The outcome is one seeks love with a brand new individual, with a brand new stranger. back the stranger is remodeled into an "intimate" individual, back the adventure of falling in love is exhilarating and extreme, and back it slowly turns into much less and no more extreme, and results in the want for a brand new conquest, a brand new love - constantly with the appearance that the hot love can be diverse from the sooner ones.
