In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"We as human beings have all experienced this sensation at one point or another in our lives. You know the one that speeds up your heart rate, ties your stomach in knots, and reduces your vocal ability to that of an epileptic during a seizure. What else but love could possibly have such an effect on you, other than chemical stimulants? It's more sudden than a heart attack for some, and as gradual as a snail for others, but in the end, the results are all alike. Sweaty palms, constant second-guessing and the overwhelming feeling that your breath either smells bad or you have something dripping from your nose. Nothing compares to the feeling love projects upon one's self and the first time you feel this sensation undoubtedly should be memorable."
