Love At First Sight

I believe in love at first sight. It’s happened to me before.

Unfortunately when it did happen, I didn’t act on it and I have never seen her again. It was about ten years ago but her image remains burned in my brain. One of my biggest regrets in life is that I never ran after her. I should have.

I know what you are thinking; this was not love at first sight. But you’d be wrong. I know that it was.

It may be a little one-sided and it is very hard to explain, but I am sure that I loved her the first time I saw her. I am sure that I still do.

Maybe I am just a hopeless romantic. But with all my girlfriends, I never really felt that initial spark of love at first sight. I don’t know, maybe that feeling is uncommon. Maybe it only happens in the movies. Maybe it’s not for me.

I still think of that first case of love at first sight and the girl in the red jacket. I often think that she will walk back into my life one day and I know if she ever does, I won’t let her slip away so easily.

Maybe that girl and I will never cross paths again. Maybe I was completely wrong about the whole thing but it doesn’t feel wrong. The feeling has stayed with me all this time. It has to be real.

Who knows what the future holds? Maybe I will have this feeling again. And if I do, maybe she will be “the one.” Call me a hopeless romantic if you will but I believe in love at first sight.

  1. And as sweet and thoughtful a guy as you are, Chase, I hope and pray that She will walk back into your life, somehow, someway, and She will love you, too.

  2. Hi Chase,

    This reminds me of what my mother told me, “when you meet the right man, you’ll KNOW it”. I didn’t know what she meant until the day I met the man who is now my husband. We both “knew it”. That was over 23 years ago.

    Was it love at first sight. Yeah, I’ll call it that.

  3. Nice read, Chase!

    I’ve looked back at connections I made when I was younger and wondered why I let the person slip away so easily – in my case I think i was scared to let someone see the ‘real me”, at that point.

    I do reckon it’s easier to be “in love” with someone you don’t actually know – then they can represent whatever we want them to ;=)

    Cheers – Robin

  4. Hi Chase.

    I hope that the lady in red walks back into your life. But if not, I think that because you believe so strongly, that’s all that matters. It’s true for you.

    I would say that you are a HopeFUL romantic!
