Not the first time I have been told I am intense. More often I am told the first little while talking to a new girl I am very intense. The only thing that I can come up with is that the new relationship energy (NRE) is so high that it is like a drug. It consumes you. Takes over your world and you can’t get enough of it. Like any drug it wears off. The problem is that there is no time frame and everyone is different.
