The link says the average woman falls in love only once - intresting.

Was just playing Roy Orbison's "A Love So Beautful" and noted this comment ....

"I remember a special boy from the early 50's when I was young and so very in love. It never came to pass that we would be together and I have always regretted it. My very first love and it, I know now, was the only true love I would ever have. Now in very old age, I can, at least remember him as 21 years old and not 78, which would be his age today. Memories can be nostalgic and sad, but also very beautiful."

I do believe that this is why most women do not remarry after divorce or the death of a spouse, whereas most men do. I know that I never loved anyone other than my former spouse and he said that he never loved anyone other than me. HOwever when he sold his soul to the Devil he suddenly "fell in love" (lust) with every woman he met; true story.

I would call it the "LUSTstruck male" not the "LOVEstruck male"!! My former husband definitely pursued me and was "LUSTstruck" but he didn't have the capability to "love" as St. Thomas Aquinas defines love ("to will the good of the other in every instance"). LOVE is a committment, LOVE is a process, LOVE is NOT a feeling; LUST is a feeling.


NO wonder the divorce rate is so high and continuing to climb.......the world is filled with a bunch of lust-filled men who do not know how to love.

Is that why my attempts to talk w/ my first and possibly only love (when I was 27 and she 21) .... why she has not communicated w/ me? I think I was her first true love, and I know she married another not long after we broke-up. I do not know her current marital status, but I believe she would still love me - we had such a wonderful Christian Chaste Courtship.

I'm NOT trying to re-establish our romantic relationship, but would like to communicate w/ her.

I have found, over the years, that there have been several people with whom I had that "I just knew" feeling. But it merely means that you will have a significant effect on that person's life, or that he/she will have a significant effect on yours.

"Love at first sight" it is not.

This TOTALLY makes sense to me. I think I can move past previous disappointments because of this epiphany. THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!! heart

Tara, it does happen! I remember very fondly the first date wtih my late-wife, in a word AMAZING! I knew before the date ended that she was someone special, and someone I wanted to spend a lot of time with. Did I know I was going to marry her, No, I wouldn't go that far. I do remember that I was 100% more worried about the 2nd date then the 1st because the 1st went so well. Anyway, the 2nd went even better ... and we eventually got married. I took 2 years before I proposed but I was waiting for the perfect moment.

My grandma used to say if a man has not talked about marriage within 5 dates, he wants to mess around. I can see why.

I think that your grandma is giving you good advice smile

My husband always said he knew right from the first time he met me. Unfortunately, the first time I met him I thought he was a real sleaze. He tried to take me out a couple of times but I always had some nonsense excuse why I could not go. He would just say, "OK, maybe next time." I would think, "not in this lifetime."


Three years later, I moved 2 counties away (75 miles) to the 'country'. I went to the store early one morning and this man came running up to me, saying, "Don't I know you?" It was him! He was living in a house one street over from where I had bought a house!


I did not see him again for 3 months and one morning (6:45) I took a ride down his street and he was standing in the driveway looking up at the sky scratching his head. I stopped and he said he just had the craziest and strongest feeling to come outside. Go figure! We were together 21 years until he passed.
