Do you believe....

in love at first sight?
And not just the love between a mother and child, but between two adults.
I knew I was going to marry my husband 9 years ago when we first met. It broke my heart when he dumped me for a girl he had a one night stand with, but after he figured out the type of person she was he divorced her and came back to me. We may have our troubles, but we are together, working on our relationship so that we can make our marriage work. I know marriage is no picnic, and I expected to have to work at it, but at least we're together like I wanted to be.
No I didn't save myself, hoping he would come back to me, I went on with my life and knew God would work something out if He truely wanted to give me this man to spend the rest of my life with.

  • My husband says that he knew I was "the one" from the first time he saw me more than 50 years ago. It took me a good bit longer to come to love him, and our love has continued to grow. Loving someone is really more about choice than about feelings, so I think that choice can happen rather quickly.

  • No I do not believe in love at first sight. Maybe Lust at first sight.

    Me personally, if a guy dumped me for some other female. He would NEVER get another chance to be my man/DH/SO. PERIOD.

  • Lust at first can't love someone you don't know and even then, it's tough.

  • I know alot of women want to believe in love at first sight but in my oppinion you can lust or even love there looks or love there personality but to me to be IN LOVE with someone you have to know who they are and what they are about ...What kind of charector are they its the little things that they do is what makes you fall in love with that person...sorry ladys

  • in my defence, I knew my husband for almost a year before we dated, him choosing someone who he had a one night stand with took me for a complete surprise since that was not the person he had been.
