You had me at hello…on Aisle 3

The night I went to The Gold Club for Jezebel Magazine’s Most Eligible party, I was scoping out the crowd to find a few singles to interview.  I was mingling and chatting people up when an adorably fabulous woman came up to me and we got to talking.

She gave me a business card and I gave her mine, telling her about the Misadventures in Atlanta dating blog.  She immediately lit up and excitedly told me that she was newly married and very happy.  She recounted the sweet sweet story of when she met her new husband at a grocery store (!!) and that she really believes that she found the true love of her life.

She told me that when they met she didn’t call him right away, she waited a few days   After she finally called him back, they scheduled a date. Their first date lasted hours and within a few weeks…they were engaged.

This is when she called her husband over to introduce us.  They told me that he literally had his entire house packed up and was scheduled to leave Atlanta.  The day he met her? He canceled the move – without even knowing if she would call back! Talk about serendipity, right?

I suppose some would classify that as love at first sight;  or at the very least, smitten in a grocery store!  Do you believe in love at first sight?

I know I am hopeless romantic and this kind of love story is what I love to hear about to satisfy my curiosity about how people meet and fall in love.  I just think it is possible to meet someone and immediately feel as if the person is right for you.

I have met only one man that I felt that way about instantly.   It didn’t work out but that intense attraction I felt was a first for me and I was not at all prepared for it! Have you ever felt that way about someone when you met them?

Guys, if you met someone that really blew you away, how far would you go to get and keep her?  Would you rearrange your life or postpone a major move in an effort to make it happen with the woman of your dreams?

@PR ~ I think so too. She’s telling me that they are open with all questions to one another. I don’t understand that because even if you have the nerve to ask particular questions, anybody thinking about the ego crushing aftermath you will have to deal with after answering those dumba$$ questions if hurt feelings should arise?

I don’t care to know the size the the honey pot before mine. The thought would never, ever even cross my mine. To be honest, I don’t care the size of any woman’s body parts who he’s been with me before. Why waste my energy on dumb stuff like that…women don’t do that!

Lady-How can something so familiar be so strange...hmmmmm

whoa! i see things have really picked up this afternoon. Leggs, i bet there are women who try to compare breast size. not me personally (i’d never win :( ), but i bet it’s done all the time.

any guy asking to compare his size to someone else’s has already been told he’s not the most impressive stallion in the stall. i wonder if your co-worker had the guts to confirm it for him.

@Melo ~ sorry. She told him he wasn’t as thick as the first guy, but she liked what he brought to the bedroom.

I can’t imagine having a convo like that with the person I’m with. My ex husband use to ask about someone from my past and I shut him down with the quickness saying I’m not about to have this convo with you. End of discussion!

I really do not know what else to say about that. I have been asked if I have “hurt” other women by a current before.

She’s 37 and I believe he’s 32?

@czB ~ you might be right on the breast issue. I was so tiny (plums), but I never asked about another woman’s. I just worked with what I had.

Props, to all of the “little” guys before me who make me seem so “big” now. LOL

I remember when dating a woman asked me my “size” I said I don’t know. I don’t have a reference to judge it against, I don’t go around sizing up other guys “peckers”. How is a guy supposed to know how his sizes up against other guys?

@Leggs??

that has to be some of the dummest stuff i have ever heard about 2 pple living tgether. And for her to even contemplate pacyfing his ego like that with that response….they gotta be two such low life and low esteemed pple that found each other.

so the first guy made a real good impression on her! LMBOFF! he dont even get it!

guys, if you’re rocking her world and making her cross-eyed in the bedroom believe me, she’ll tell you. if she has no particular comment other than “it’s good” …. don’t ask for further details.

@Melo ~ I know they’re not low life…just too carefree for me. I wouldn’t have a convo like that with ANY man ever. If my man should constantly ask, may be grounds for ending the relationship because I can’t be someone that insecure. No doubt it will affect the relationship going forward.

@pr, if you really broke it down for her “well im bigger than _____, but smaller than ______, guess im about even with ______” she’d of looked at you like you were insane lol
@cz – right on. she’ll tell you if your on point, but if she has nothing overly spectacular to say, dont push your luck. if she answers at all, shes trying to be kind, keep pushing and she’ll blast ya

@Leggs??

the only other scenario i can think of is if the guy aint serious about her..he dont care coz to him,hes is playing.

That age difference may be the reason..she may be thirstier fro him than he is for her.

Melo, maybe her hole is to big and worn out and he feels lost in the ocean and if he feels that way,all the more why he wld ask that in a non caring way…i hope she aint being strung along,like the topic yesterday!
