Have you met your true love yet?

how did you meet him?

by Anonymousreply 19Last Wednesday at 5:30 PM

At a fast food restaurant. Seriously. And, while we're both now old, we're not either one fat.

No. I'm thinking I never will, sadly.

I have, but he was married to a woman.

by Anonymousreply 4Last Wednesday at 2:00 PM

On okCupid - together for over five years. Married for four. He’s my absolute best friend and soulmate. I also met him at 44 and thought I would never meet someone I adored. So you know...it can absolutely happen.

R4 Sounds like an infatuation. How do you know it was true love? And why didn't you fight for it?

I don't think there's any such thing as a single "true love" - that's a fantasy.

I do genuinely love several people, and have loved a few in the past as well. I think people often confound love with great companionship. That's my jaded opinion.

One person in a relationship always loves a little more than the other.

I was 24 and gorgeous, he was my 31 year old TA.

I think true love develops over life... we're going on 11 years together. It's earned through pain, sorrow, great happiness, and deep mundanity experienced together. Your crush becomes Euphoric lust becomes terrifying commitment becomes true love.

Met him 40 years ago.

Loved him for every minute of those 40 years.

Felt him die peacefully next to me last weekend after a year suffering with ALS.

Oh my god, R10. So sorry for your loss!!

I met mine in my late 40’s. You have to kiss a lot of toads before you meet your prince. Also, something “unusual” happens along the way that makes the meeting unique from other dates- it’s sort of like the unexpected happens and either it ruins everything or you know right away he’s the one.

For example, I had promised a coworker to help move a couch. He came along, (we had been dating awhile) and when we were moving it, the sleeper part popped out and hit me square on the mouth! There was blood everywhere. He freaked out, and ran down the street looking for help.

Suddenly I realized he loved me fiercely and intensely, it shone through at that moment- and I knew he was the one. No one ever showed me love like that, and I’ve only seen that fierceness a handful of times from him, but something shifted that day and was never the same after that. I knew he had my back and married him shortly afterwards.

R3 is the 2015 bump troll.

We just lower our standards over time

by Anonymousreply 15Last Wednesday at 3:39 PM

No, R15, we don't. We just learn to look for the things that really matter.

by Anonymousreply 16Last Wednesday at 3:44 PM

R8 I agree with but why is that ?

by Anonymousreply 17Last Wednesday at 4:47 PM

Yes. But we didn’t end up together. Life was complicated.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Wednesday at 5:25 PM

Yes, in 1981. I sometimes think it's better to meet your soul mate, of however you wish ti describe that sensation of being so connected to somebody. Then separate. That way you'll never see their feet of clay.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
