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?
