Love at first Sight.... IMPOSSIBLE! Your heart needs time to catch up to what your eyes have shown you.
THE One.... NO WAY! There are MANY with whom we can fall truly, madly, deeply in love with. Besides, what if there was ONLY ONE in the world for each of us? What are the chances we would meet? And, say we did meet our ONE & ONLY & they were hit by a truck.... Then what? I think the trick is to find ONE person we want to grow old with! Soul mates.... Perhaps!
Chemistry.... YES!.... Now we're talkin! It's what gets us to a second date (& third, & fourth & so on). It's either there or its not. There is no in between. It's usually within moments of meeting & speaking with someone that we feel it (or don't.) And its not just physical-it's emotional, spiritual & intellectual as well. It is rare & wonderful & what we are all ultimately searching for!
Me? I love everything about the ocean-the feeling of sand between my toes, the smell of the salt in the air, the warmth of the sun on my face, the sound of the waves. I love sunrises, sunsets and holding hands. I love the outdoors, sitting by the fire. I love long walks & good conversation. I like to keep fit. I love massages (receiving as well as giving), hot tubs, weekend getaways & BBQ's and I'm a good cook too. I love kids and I have two great boys who live with me every other week. I love my dog, and my family & friends are very important to me. I love to laugh, I love to love & to be loved and really love LIFE!
What I want in a relationship? Open communication on ANY topic, honesty, respect, laughter (LOTS of it), affection, loyalty & last but NOT least-FUN!
There! I think that just about covers it for me!
How about you?
