Why doubt love?
After reading all of the feedback from readers of Three Stages of Love: Lust, I’ve noticed that one of the questions that comes up often is “How is it possible that two people can fall so hard and so fast for each other in such a short period of time?”
As a woman who has fallen in love at first sight, I say “It is possible, and it happens all the time!”
Love doesn't have a time frame, an expiration date, or rules for that matter. The determining factor of how fast, when and where one falls in love is, in my opinion, written by fate. True love can happen in a moment’s time, but whether you choose to accept it as love or recognize it as an emotional reaction is entirely up to YOU.
Have you ever met a person who captures your attention but you don't know why? Have you encountered a man or woman who you just can't stop thinking about or dreaming of?
How do you know that you haven't experienced love at first sight when there is not an actual definition of what constitutes it?
I know countless women (including myself) who have later in life married that man who they met by chance, but just couldn't get out of their minds. The moment their eyes locked, or the first words they spoke to each other resonated for days, weeks or years until they were joined once again, or forever.
But the path that each of us takes on the road to love is different. There are those who experience an instantaneous attraction to one another, but it leads to nothing more than a one night stand. And then there are those who meet their soul mate and, in a whirlwind of emotions, they fall in love. Everyone has a story, and some have many—you may have a different love story you can tell. Regardless of the story—all that matters is that you believe it exists.
The question that I propose is “really, why does it matter if it takes you seconds to fall in love or years?” The focus should be on the fact that love is real, all-fullfilling and people do fall in love at first sight! I would personally like to see some statistics—not on how many people get divorced each year, but instead on how many people fall in love each day!
Overwhelmed with tragedy and sadness, be it on the news, in newspapers or through conversations, I welcome the opportunity to be told a love story every day. Let's express the love we feel, the stories we experience and the connections we make. Let's stop asking why, how and where, and instead let’s learn to accept love as it comes to us; through a story, in a movie or with the dark handsome stranger sitting next to you right now!
