Love at First Sight

Do you believe in love at first sight? If you had asked, me do you believe in love at first sight twenty-one years ago, I would have told, you, my answer is no. That was before love, at first sight, happened to me.

Do you believe that two people were destined to be together? There was a time when I did not think such things were true. I didn’t believe these types of things ever happen to anyone. They only happened in Fairy tail. That was all before I meant my husband of almost twenty years.

When I first saw my husband, I know he was something special. I know, right at that moment that the two of us were meant to be together. I even told, my mother, that I was going to be with him someday. That was almost two years before we met.

My husband was a good friend of my next-door neighbors. He was working on his friend’s car the first time I ever. He stood up and somehow, I instantly know, that he was going to be apart of my life at some point in time. I would have never believed it if it had not happened to me.

Yours must be an exception as what is called love at first sight is infatuation and some kind of chemistry. A marriage to be successful a lot of input from both is required and you must have done that.

We were just meant to be together. My husband and I have a lot in common and fully understand one another. If, this did not happen to me I would have never believe it. I just knew, I saw meant to be with him.

When you say love at first sight that is not the time I suppose you knew you and your husband had a lot in common and that you understood each other. Love at first sight is not what has kept you together but the common interests and understanding each other.

I never thougt it actually happened to people until, I saw him.

Actually this is my pet subject and I have had a lot of discussions elsewhere. Love at first sight as defined by today's youngsters is no guarantee that they will be happily married. A marriage relationship has to be built up. As I said earlier, yours is an exception if you say that you did not have to do any work to build it up.

I had exactly the same experience with my late husband, it might not have been love at first sight, but I knew right away there was something very special about him and we fell in love almost overnight.

I do think it can happen. It did not happen to me though. The first time I met my husband, I it never occurred to me we would get together. It was a year and a half later that we started dating, and then a year later we got married. I know I married the right one. We have been married for 27 years.

&AbbyG that is so sweet, I love to hear people's true love stories. It makes me happy to know, that others are happy

BrenndaMarie wrote on April 27, 2015, 2:58 PM

I know, what you are saying. I actually would say that mine is God sent. We did have to work on it. Over time our love has grown very deep. It a good subject to talk about

BrenndaMarie wrote on April 27, 2015, 3:00 PM

It was almost like we know, each other before or something.

LeaPea2417 that is kind of fast so myself it was love at first sight you just did not realize it. 27 years that is a great life together

What bothers me is that youngsters go blind when that 'love at first sight' makes its presence not realising that they will have to work towards a marriage for it to be a success. You must be aware of so many broken marriages and most of them have culminated from the 'love at first sight' scenario.
I am happy for you that you have created a great bond which I am sure was not possible had you not worked towards it. emoticon :cool:

anything worth having you have to work hard for even a good marriage

My husband may have experienced love at first sight, but I didn't. I was dating someone else at the time!

Just like what bestwriter said, yours must be an exception. I don't usually believe in that thing "love at first sight" nor people destined to be together. We all make choices

Yes, I do believe in love at first sight. That is how I met my wife and we started our relationship 11 years ago.

I'm happy that you and your husband are together and are happy. Things like this can happen, but, IMHO, what happens most often at first sight is infatuation, especially with younger people. It's lovely and wonderful and an experience that everyone should have at least once in their life, but certainly not the basis for a long term relationship let alone marriage. Just my humble opinion.
