    HAVE YOU EVER.......

    FELT TRUE LOVE??? l

    icon_razz.gif

    Not the having feelings for someone, but wanting to spend the rest of your life with one person alone, not needing anything or anyone else... and feeling totally at peace with that

    Sappy, I know, but I had to think of it today....

    Hopefully this "have you ever" theme can become something of an interesting theme for future threads....

    Yes I have had the opportunity to fall in love this way....right to the core of your soul. It was unfortunate it was not returned, but it shows me I am capable, and willing.

    Yes, my partner, and we've been together long enough for life to become routine, and then fall in love all over again! It's even better falling in love with the same man a second time. It becomes even deeper than you think.

    Can't say that I have and honestly I don't think I ever will. I don't consider that a bad thing since it's not something I am desperately seeking.

    I'm more inclined to believe it will just happen on a whim and out of nowhere. Kind of like being struck by lightening on a light rainy day. Til then it's all good in my world and I'm fine without it.

    @guy101

    Yes, it is ALOT like being struck by f-ckin lightning... at least, thats how it was for me... it wasn't "at first sight" though, I didnt even notice the guy the first time I saw him, i just remember thinking: o hes not from around here, its an unfamiliar face

    wow, i have seen some really good response and finally a topic worth reading and writing about. Thank you OP. I have never been in love and I met two people that I really liked and thought they were type of people I could settle down with. However, they were not looking for a relationship at that time so I moved on. I do believe that type of love exist. I just don't think it will happen to me.

    I have felt true love, unfortunately he wasn't "prepared" for it and let me go. It has been many months now and I am still not over it.

    Yep. It was beyond words. We wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. I was his first relationship with a man, and we were in our mid-twenties. He had been a fraternity boy, on the crew, and was then in graduate school when we were together. I understood that he needed to experience more relationships with other men before we settled down together, so we opted for an open relationship for a time. It did not work out well . . . Today, we are in touch, but only on a Christmas card basis. He's an amazing guy, but our time came and went. Timing, I have found, is extremely important.

    I too have had this opportunity.......it came out of nowhere, his voice made my heart pound, his touch brought shivers up my spine, his hand holding my hand gently even though he is 6 ft 5 but sadly, his EX who is a dick and has shared custody with their son they adopted wanted more and the court visits and drama were overwhelming and still continue and thus it totally turned his heart from thinking of a relationship again.....

    But like 40PPS wrote, it shows I am capable and willing. Time passes....

    I thought I did, once. Maybe I actually did for a time, who knows. It would be nice if it did happen, although I'm rather jaded when it comes to 'sappy' feelings...
    but I still quietly hope for it one day.

    What is this "love" of which you speak? I've never experienced it before.

    Does it hurt? icon_wink.gif

    why yes, yes i have.

    before this guy i was concerned that i wouldn't be able to feel that deeply for a perosn that consistenly. he was really good for me and taught me patience, kindness, and selflessness. what's more, i wanted to be better for him. it's been just under a year since we ended things and i still catch myself smiling about our good times. i miss him, sure, but i wouldn't trade the experience for anything and i'm very much looking forward to feeling that way again.

    in related news: still single fellas!

    For eight years I have awakened every morning next to a man who gives me a good morning kiss and tells me he loves me despite the night I have given him of being elbowed and kneed due to my restless sleep, the blanket pulled off from him, and scratched with finger and toe nails that I have a lazy habit of never trimming. I ask how he slept and he lies and says, "I slept wonderfully." It's true love.

    Best post yet! I really like this thread. Been with my guy for over 10 years. Things aren't perfect but good for the most part and I see us being together for life. So to answer the OP's question - yesicon_smile.gif

    Unfortunately I haven't felt that level of love, the deepest love i felt was only one way so that really hurt so don't know if I want to feel that level of love and get broken again. But I often wonder if there is someone for everyone who you will feel this level of love with or is just settle for someone you have feelings for but not as strong as you describe. But there is more to life than love, there is lust over hot guys lol :-P.

    Can I be extremely cheesy and really honest at the same time?

    My brain says no but my heart says yes.

    Yes, yes I have and twice have ended in heartache. Being a hopeless, Southern country boy romantic, I wear my heart on my sleeve, and as much as I try to hide it, it is always there. You live and you learn, and sometimes, it is the hardest way, having to see them be put in the ground to understand just how deep your love went, only to have it gone.

    I'm taking it slow getting to know a new guy and am really hoping this works because everything seems so right that it can't be true!

    Yes, absolutely. I found someone I was compatible with on so many levels. And his actions were those of someone who felt the same way.

    And then one day he ignored me out of the blue, severed all contact, blocked me off everything and that was that.

    You add a layer of armor and then you move on. Because there aren't any other options.
