Was it love at first sight? Was it slowly realized over time through a friendship that developed into love? Was it an overwhelming feeling in your heart that you just could not explain that you have never felt with anyone else? Did your heart beat faster when you were around the one? Were you just goo-goo eyed over the person ...? In other words, how did you know it was true love and not just a crush? What were your physical symptoms, if any? Did you ever believe you were in love, true love, until one day you met someone else and then felt something you never felt before? Thanks!

Hi Faith Reaper, yes, my heart still flutters. It really does. He is soooooo wonderful. I can't imagine being with anyone else.

Jackie Jesus always used illustrations to teach.
Mt 13:34 All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds by illustrations. Indeed, without an illustration he would not speak to them,
This also applies to the example of burning something not to return.
Hi Vinaya, So great to see you here. Wow, that is really something to go from not liking her to being in love. I am so glad it worked out for you both! Peace and blessings
Hello Connorj, Thank you for sharing about your true love and how it came about. Wow, 16 and 17 ...that is the age I met my husband too. You were wise to date others which reinforced your love for one another. Congrats!
Indeed, Faith Reaper, indeed...
Yes, indeed and may your love continue on for a lifetime! So many young people are not able to discern between infatuation and true love and become disillusioned quickly. Blessings
Thank you; your significant advice to young people is timely...
Oh, actually it was you who had added that great point as relates to the young. Thank you for sharing your insight on young love and love. Blessings
Tee hee, Manatita, Yes, I am in the Valentine's Day mode or Love mode and so I thought I would pose this question now. We can have loyalty and respect, but if you are not together then it was not true love and meant to be. Yes, Love is Divine!!!
Hello Tamirogers, Yes, you are lucky indeed! Two true loves in a lifetime is amazing. I am sorry about your first love's death, and I am glad you still remember the feeling. Nothing better than for someone to "get you".So true, about the sexy one!
Hi MizB, Ouch ... bless your heart. Yes, if there is a breakup and it is no big deal, then not true love. So, must have been the real deal for you. That is a hard reality to endure there. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks, Faith, as much as I love my husband, my knees still knocked the last time I saw him at a senior class reunion, and I avoided him the rest of the evening.
BTW, Mr. B and I met on Valentine's Day 1983, and he is also a soul mate. I've met 3.
Wow, MizB, that is something for your knees to still knock! I am glad you have Mr. B now, number three soul mate. You have known love in this life no doubt. Blessings to you and Mr. B. Maybe the knee knocker regrets letting you go ...
Jackie that is easy to believe , but doing further research , notice this scripture. Re 20:14 And death and the Grave were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire.
Can you throw death or grave in fire?
Hi Sparklea, You should write a book about finding your one true love! Thank you for sharing your magical story here. So, lovely and it is obvious he adores you so much to this day. Congrats on the 40 years of a loving marriage!!!
Sparklea, you found your true soulmate. Not everyone is so fortunate. Sometimes we have to have several trial-and-errors before that happens. Congratulations to you and your husband.
Thank you Faith and Mizbejabbers: I MAY write a book, people can't believe my story when I tell them! Blessings, Sparklea
When I was dating Mr. B. he had a heart attack at age 38. While he was in the hospital, I got some of his friends together and we moved him in with me. He was bewildered, astounded, and I'm happy to say, pleased.
Mizbejabbers: how heartwarming is that? I bet he healed quickly!
Thank you for the extra sharing here, MizB! How lovely!
Hi peachpurple, Yes, it seems when we go through life's trials and tribulations together and made it through, then the bond is even stronger and you grow that much closer to one another. So glad a workplace romance worked out! Blessings
Hello dashingscorpio, Thank you for sharing of your experiences in finding that one true love in this life. You are so wise and I love what you have stated about the mind protecting the heart! That is a wonderful opinion which I believe is true.
Hello Jared, thank you so much for sharing. Yes, one cannot truly know another without spending time with him or her. That is a good way to tell about love for sure, when no one else makes you feel the way that persons does!
Hello shamshunissa, thank you for sharing your thoughts on love. Yes, respect is a big part of loving another one. Blessings
