Following Valentine's Day, I wonder
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I can't say that I really know the answer to this question; but I would venture to say "No".
I think what happens at first sight is infatuation and that can definitely lead to love. But I question whether it happens instantly. To really love someone, you need to know who they are.
When I first met my husband, I thought I was in love. He was tall, dark and handsome, kind of looked like Elvis Presley to me. On our first date, we went to my prom and danced all night; then afterwards we ate pizza with my brother and his date. At the end of the night, he kissed me at the door. I can tell you I thought I was in love. I was in love with how he made me feel, not who he was. I didn't even know him.
We have been married for over 48 years now and I can tell you that I do love this man. I love my husband for who he is. He is a man of integrity, kind, caring, supportive, and a good provider. He is my friend and I can trust him to be there for me.
What do you think about love at first sight? I would love to hear your comments.
