    He was a fantastic listener & talker ~ we could talk about anything for hours & he never got tired of it or ran out of things to say.  He was sweet, understanding, and a gentleman.  Yes, I knew it was love .... instantly

    That wasn't how it happened for me at all! When I first met my boo I was scared to death of him because he looked so mean and the only way I even started talking to him was because he started teasing me. He started making a fuss over me and took a personal interest in my safety and well-being, that was what made us friends. But it was only when my ex-husband had left me and I kept crying on his shoulder that we realized how much we truly meant to each other. I guess that's what makes this relationship so special because before we ever became lovers (and parents), we first we close friends.

    It was definitely her body; she was in a blue bikini and I hit her. Yes I said I hit her; (well, what I really mean is, I hit her with a frisbee). At that moment, I had no earthly idea what love was (although I was definitely infatuated with her and she was the center of my attention); so I would have to conclude I did not know it was love. Now after being with her off and on for the next week and visiting her family's house I began to understand how special this indeed was; yet I still did not discern it, as that special and ellusive love.
    Now after I flew home to my country and dated some other girls (I was 17) I began to realize how special Kate was and most significantly how different, unique and perfect our time together was. I continued to "long" for her more than any other girls and I even mentioned to one of my friends that Kate was the one above and beyond all the others that I had dated.
    I did stay in communication with Kate via phone and we shared the same sentiments; I was even naive enough to ask her to date other guys so that she was sure about this. Me, the most definitive idiot being a somewhat weak male wanted to date other girls so at first I may have even been shallow enough to think of this as a way of maintaining my "freedom;" however, once again I would think of her when I was with others. Our long phone calls; although romantic and awkward are indeed some of my greatest or most significant bits of evidence that I was indeed in love with this young woman named Kate.

    Love is a fantasy peddled by Hollywood and fantasized by children. Love is often confused with lust, and lust is a terrible emotion that wreaks havoc on the mind.

      Wait a while my friend, cupid haven't found you yet. Believe me, when it's love you will know it.
      Good luck and thanks for the comment.

      Ah, I agree with tobusiness.  PLUS, you are just the sort of guy that makes winning-over a challege to undertake!  Havoc comes only if  immorality is involved, i.e. falling in love with someone else's wife or husband or with someone not centered.

    Well, we were both young, dumb and shy, so that may have been it.  Ha.  He had nice hair and was sweet and polite and he (used to) bring me roses every week!  He would always go ahead and ask me out for the next week just in case someone else wanted to take me out.  So, he beat them to the punch. We were only 18 and 19 years old when we met, and we have been married now going on 35 years.  Wow, where has the time gone?  All that seems like just yesterday.  Ha.

      Faith, this sound so very familiar, but does he still bring you flowers?

    2. Faith Reaper profile image86
      Faith Reaperposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, but not every week, as that would get a little expensive.  He finally told me back in the day that he could get a good deal for the roses.  Ha.  But it was still sweet.

    The first time when I was 12 (tee hee) I feel in love with MD's red bike with aluminum fenders and his somewhat sorrowful soul.  The second time I fell in love, I was fascinated with JD's mind and understanding of all things related to science and history - to say nothing of the fact that he was the first to hold my hand.  The 3rd time I fell in love with a Phy.Ed. major who couldn't sit down and took me EVERYWHERE in the span of 2 weeks- parades, stock car race, the State Fair, fireworks, etc. etc. The 4th time I fell in love, was totally at first sight.  It was instantaneous recognition of something and when he spoke, it a signed, sealed and delivered deal.  The fourth and most rewarding and happy time of falling in love was with my husband Mike Olmon. It was a combination of attraction to his science mind, his energy and love of activities, and most of all, the fact that on our first date, he looked at me with total admiration in his eyes and that's something I had never experienced before.

    He had the same interests as I did and had a great smile. I did not realize that it was really love for awhile.

    She is the female version of who i am. I tried not to put it across like this but it was too late to change my point of view. She is exactly doing the same things the way i have done it years or months ago. It was like we both were looking at an object, at two different points in time, and still came to the same conclusion.

      It normally take years of loving and living together before reaching this stage, you are both very fortunate to have found each other.
