    So, this guy I met on Match just moved to the DC area to teach. We've been texting, talking on the phone, or Skyping every day for weeks. We really get along. He moved here Friday and I offered to help him unpack and move in. Turns out, the moving truck was delayed and would not arrive until Saturday morning, but he still wanted to me to come over on Friday and buy me dinner for helping him. He also asked if I wanted to stay over (no funny business) so we could get an early start on Saturday. I agreed.
    We had a great dinner on Friday and then watched a movie on the tiny TV he brought in his car. We cuddled and kissed and then went to bed. All day yesterday we moved in his stuff, unpacked, cleaned, etc. For the whole day we hardly had to say anything to each other during the move... we just knew what the other person was thinking! Whenever something needed to be done, we didn't even have to speak... it just seemed to happened naturally.
    When everything was unpacked, I went with him to Target to get the usual stuff for a new house, and frankly we had a great time. We had the same taste in everything!
    We were enjoying each other's company so much, he asked me to stay over again last night, and I agreed. This time we did a little more than cuddling, but no actual sex. We both realized, however, that we find each other very hot, and have a great physical "fit." I finally went home this afternoon after a late brunch at his place.
    What was amazing was that from Friday afternoon until today we were together constantly, and yet we did not have one moment of impatience, annoyance, or misunderstanding (while moving heavy furniture!)... and we had long, intimate conversations about just about everything. Everything just seems to click.
    Is it too soon to think that this might be love?

    Lucky man! Sounds awesome! I don't know if it's love but it's sure a real friendship. Good to know that Match does have some successes.

    So what's the problem? icon_smile.gif

    I cant really tell you if it's Love or not, I'm not you or him. But I will say take it slow, and really get to know each other.
    Don't sweat it man, have fun. Let Nature and Time take its course.

    If you *think* that it is love, then IMHO it actually *is* love.

    I just hope it's mutual.
    Get to know each other.

    Good luck icon_wink.gif

    Good advice. We've both agreed to take it slow, and see what happens.
    But, I just have this feeling... hehe.

    Love is a process that takes time; not just a feeling.

    How many tears of happy remembrance does this bring to an old guy. Thanks!

    The first blooming of love is always the best. The art is in making it last, on a foundation that isn't just sex or novelty.

    And when that happens? Nothing in life is better. When the guy who thrills you today thrills you tomorrow, you have found Heaven on Earth. My best to you. icon_biggrin.gif

    First off congratulations GWriter on finding someone you obviously click with. I am hoping one day soon I can actually say the same.

    It sounds like you guys are getting along very well and especially when people are moving there is a lot of stress so the fact the both of you clicked so well during this times speaks volumes at the fact that this is going well. When I move I am usually cranky lol.

    You and him are the only ones who can answer if it is love but from what you have presented it does seem like love is starting at least from your side anyways. The fact that it is not just physical but also emotional that your bond is growing also speaks well.

    Sounds like you have a great thing going and I wish you the best of luck.

    David. icon_smile.gif

    No, I don't. There is no schedule. The reason we think it might be is because of one thing mentioned in the above quote. icon_wink.gif

    Thanks again everyone. We are so eager to see each other again that we are meeting for dinner on Tuesday.
    The chance to sound off on this board, and get advice and feedback from all of you, means a lot! I'm very grateful! icon_biggrin.gif

    Congratulations and best of luck in your new relationship! I said a long while back - you are a great guy - intelligent and deserving of all the good things (and people) coming your way. That you would meet another total quality guy is just what I'd expect to happen for you. Have a ball for yourselves.

    I agree. I have learned that "love at first sight" doesn't really exist. I found that it usually starts with infatuation, which can last several weeks or months, then it gradually turns into love or friendship.

    If things are going well for you two, then go with it, but take it slow so no one gets hurt. Remember, he is just moving here and having an "instant" relationship can be both fun and scary. Once he gets acclimated to the area, he may want to explore other options. I wouldn't like to see you get hurt.

    I think taking it slow, while keeping your emotions in check, will be the best for you. In my experience it's very hard to find two people who move at the same pace. Tread slowly and you'll be fine. Time will tell.

    icon_smile.gif coolest response ever.
    Not to be mistaken for being negative, but I think it's always wise to have contingency plans for the worst case scenario but just hope with time it won't have to go there.
    If it ever does, well you're prepared.

    Not to be a downer on how you are currently feeling and it seriously is great you are having such an excellent time. Just remember to consider your emotions, but don't always let them dictate your decisions.

    But all in all, honestly I wish you all the best in everything icon_biggrin.gif

    I concur, and I also give the OP's heartfelt circumstances a 10. As I hope he has found a small measure of what we all desire, and few ever find. =)

    Congrats. Just be careful that it's not infatuation. New relationships are always fun and exciting in the first week. Just don't get toooooo far ahead of yourself. icon_smile.gificon_wink.gificon_razz.gificon_eek.gif
