How close is too close?

    To me

    Close enough

    Is when you're near

    With me all the time

    So I may see your face

    And enjoy your smile daily

    But to say that would be too close

    That would not be the term that I use

    When speaking of you, it's not close enough

    They say 'familiarity breeds contempt" so I'd say some distance is good. No specific measurement to offer however.

    Always retain some mystery.

    If driving in a car a whole car length is recommended and at greater speeds the distance should increase. (as well as in wet weather).

    There is no answer to your question because it is different for everyone and every situation. To close is when you feel a desire to start to distance yourself from it, how close that is is person and situation dependent.

    If you're talking about a relationship -

    When two people believe on each other more than themselves.

    If its about a desire-

    If you can't see(concentrate) on anything except for the the thing you desire.

    About God:-

    When you can achieve the state of samadhi.

    When its close enough to realise its time to step back, then its to close

    swing in a circle with your arms out, if anyone is too close, they'll feel it.

    swing really fast so it hurts

    Depends on what you're talking about, but if your talking personal space I'd say an arms length.

    Trick question ;) space is an illusion. I'm pretty sure time is not, but I can't really argue that point conclusively.
