Do I believe in love at first sight? Yes - sort of . . .

Updated on February 28, 2013

I mean, look at her - how could I not love her at first sight?!

Yes and no . . . I'm not trying to be cute (although, I am adorable and just can't help it) and I'm not inclined to evade direct answers to questions, but genuine love changes, it grows and matures. I fell for my high school sweetheart hard and fast, like, I saw her and instantly needed to meet her. A friend I was with as she walked past the car we were in knew who she was and that she usually attended a local weekend dance, so I planned with him to go and for him to introduce me to her.

Now, this was not like me at all, I was never forward with girls, not shy, but not willing to simply and abruptly be introduced. But, this was seriously the prettiest girl I had ever seen . . . long dark hair, dark eyes, very shapely, just beautiful. This (that she was so stunning to look at) made my desire to be presented to her as one interested to know her both an audacious and irresistible exploit. He introduced me, I told him to leave, and I sat next to her. She told me she was with someone, a tough guy from school had brought her there that night. He was off goofing around with friends and we talked for a good while. When he suddenly appeared he seemed annoyed and asked his date "So are you coming with me or are you going to stay there with him?". She looked at me and I said "I hope you stay here with me" and she looked back at him and said "I'm going to stay here with him". After assuring me that he would 'kick my ass in school on Monday', he left.

Over 40 years, 6 kids, and 12 grandchildren later I love her more than ever. She is still the most beautiful woman I've ever seen, but imagine my happy surprise as I discovered through the years that she is also smart and good and kind - she is more desirable to me knowing her as I do than when I fell head-over-heels for her. It was indeed love at first sight, but it's so much more now . . . now, it's a deep love of appreciation, I delight in so many things about her. One day long ago, it was love at first sight - today, when she's with me I can't stop looking at her and when she's away I can't stop thinking about her.
