What was your first impression of your soulmate? Did you have any idea that you gonna be partners?
When I first met my wife, then college-mate, it was like meeting any other girl.. its only after spending years together I fell in love with her.. I wonder if anyone ever fell in love at first sight...
I fell for my soulmate immediately; although I tried to play it cool. 18 years later we are still together and happier than ever. Love at first sight? Absolutely!
I had absolutely no idea how things would turn out when I met my husband. I was actually married at the time, unhappily but still trying. We hit it off immediately...as online friends. There was no thought to any kind of romantic attachment. He was 27 years my senior, living a couple thousand miles away, and I met him (along with several other people with whom I am still friends) playing free poker on Myspace. We made good use of the chat function, and before long nine of us were meeting regularly for a few hands of poker. Fast forward through a whole lot of life changes, and now we are married, have two kids together, work together in a home business and couldn't be happier.
Technically, maybe you could call it love at first sight, except I loved him before I ever got to see him in person. By the time he flew here, we already knew we'd be spending our lives together. In the strict sense of the concept, though...no, it was far from instant spontaneous type stuff.
The moment I met him (at the age of 41) I had a completely alien, uncharacteristic response. I knew I wanted to be with him. I was out socially with a man I occasionally dated and he introduced me to my husband. My response was so overpowering that I said, "You don't mind if I date him, do you?" to this other person, and when he said, "Oh, I guess not," I said, "Thanks. What's his phone number?"
I found myself feeling tongue-tied and awed by my husband. It took me some time to work up the courage to ask him out, which he declined. I went on to date others for a couple months until he asked me out, but I still felt we belonged together.
Obviously, he didn't feel the same first impression, though.
I consciously knew that the powers that be brought us together to be an asset to each others lives, but I would have NEVER believed or imagined it would be on this level.
I didn't know at first, but it just took about 2 months before I knew for sure I wanted to be with him, and no one else. He is a protector, a provider, the person who I know will never let me down. No didn't know at first but he was persuasive. I am the happiest person now, all because I took the chance to get to know the popular guy at work, who everyone warned me not to go out with! We have been together for 3 years and I have never regretted loving him. I have always been treated with respect trust and dignity and I treat him the same way. Nothing is more wonderful than having this.
I had no idea I would marry the man I did, it wasn't love at first sight either you can't help who you fall in love with life is full of surprises, you never know what follows in your path
