My wife is awesome. She's intelligent, beautiful and sexy. She's the most generous,considerate person I've ever known. She's a wonderful cook. She pampers me just like my Italian mama did before her. This Thursday will mark our 32nd Anniversary. We met in my buddy's wedding. He is her cousin. She was a bridesmaid and I her escort. We danced all night and just seemed to mesh from the very beginning.

As for how I knew she was the one...it's hard to describe...you just know . When it happens you'll recognize it immediately. I don't believe it's something that you can look for...just let it happen. Be out there meeting people and interacting. Maybe you'll be as lucky as I am.

I can recommend two Temptations songs for a little insight into this.

Born To Love You and This Is My Beloved .

Good luck to all of you who hope to meet that right someone.

This sounds sappy but I think I knew my husband was the "one" the first moment I saw him. I just had a feeling that we would be good together, whether as friends or more.

He is quiet and intense, but also friendly. He is cautious when choosing friends, devoted to his loved ones, a good father, a great husband and basically, my best friend.

That's an important quality, that your partner is your best friend. You have to enjoy the time you spend together and miss them like crazy when they aren't there, but also have your own alone time without feeling guilty.

That's exactly how it is. We both are the type who like to have alone time, but we enjoy our time together. We can be sitting in a room together, each reading a magazine and feel completely comfortable in the silence.

I love not being in love. It sucks beyond belief. I can think of no worse feeling than completely trusting another person. It was a nice feeling when everyone was innocent, but after a ton of sh*t happens to you, you learn no matter how good people may seem, it's not safe to trust or make emotional connection with anyone.

Dave...in a way, i agree and disagree. Love is the greatest feeling in the world i think. Its a natural high for me. Being with Brittany makes me feel better when im sick.

Now the downside...my old relationship, i really loved her...I THOUGHT! We basically hated each other in the end, we just wouldnt say it. We almost pretended to love. But, after we broke up, i realized i was still in love with her, and that hurt much worse to know that you still love someone you dont want to be around. Im over her now, but that was the worst feeling in the world. Anywayz, you cant stop love. I dont think...???hmm...interesting.

Ok, this is going to sound sappy, but I don't care.

I knew my wife was who I was going to be with for the rest of my life the very first time she said "Hi" to me.

You know that corny line "you complete me"? Well, that about sums it up. As soon as I met her, it was like "Here's the rest of me. Now I can start living."

We were both out celebrating our birthdays, (they're 4 days apart). I was with all my buddies, she was with hers. She wasn't prettiest one, or the tallest, etc. But she was mine, I knew that straight off. We spent the rest of the night leaning close and whispering and laughing.We were friends from the first second. We touched each other with a familiarity usually reserved for people who've been together a while. I was totally at ease putting my hand on the small of her back , and she was just as comfortable with me. I can honestly say, I knew, that night, March 1st, 1991, I would never, ever love another woman. It's giving me goosebumps just writing this. I'm a very fortunate guy, and I don't ever forget that.

We laugh about it now, our first meeting. She says the reason she liked me right off is because when my friends and I came in, I was the only one wearing a tie, and I held the door open for some other people going out. So she says she knew I was a nice person right then.

I tell her I was attracted to her because I had no choice. As soon as our eyes met, my heart was gone, right into hers. That, and she's got a nice rack. LOL. That usuually gets me a swat.

Needless to say, we were married 6 months later, and have been together ever since. We sw no sense in putting if off and having a long engagement. We wanted to wake up together, do the dishes, grab a handful off ass as we walked by etc. All the things people who love each other do.

Well, sorry for running on. I've thought about this thread since it showed up. I wanted to make sure I've done my wife justice in trying to convey just how deeply I love her.

Sorry for the syrup O.D.

If I read any more I'm gonna die of a diabetic coma =:P I once thought I was in love, but it turned out to be just indigestion... the whole jumping bean feelin at the pit of me stomach, the restlessness, the nights when I used to stay up, etc ;)

I'm wondering, would you love these significant others no matter what or are there limits, conditions, and boundaries that can test your love? :beatnik:

Of course not. What a silly question. Love has no conditions or set limits. I'm not sure what you're getting at , though.

It's not a silly question, so I don't know how you read my statement - it was pretty straightforward.

I asked, does the love spoken of here have conditions? So, hypothetically, if the person you loved betrayed you or did something unspeakable to you and others, you would love them.

When you love some with everything you've got, you don't put restrictions or limits on it. "I'll love you with all my heart , except for if this happens or that happens"

Hence, a silly question.

As far as not knowing what you're getting at, I just sensed there's an underlying reason as to why one would ask a question like that, that's all.

So, you WOULD love someone who would commit ultimate transgressions. According to this form of love, one would continue to love their significant other even if they were abusive to one or children...

Hence, a silly question.

Hence, I never thought it would be construed as a silly question.

You bet :beatnik:

LOL. I knew...KNEW this would be how you respond. I've seen you debate with others, and it never varies. You say something, someone replies, and you pick it apart, paragraph by paragraph, then sentence by sentence, and, if need be, word by word, all the way down to correcting spelling. I've seen it over and over.

Well, I'm not biting. You can chase your own tail. LOL.

Look, my wife and I love each other, that's not gonna change, no matter what. You can dissect it any way you want, bud.

I'm sorry if you were "hypothetically" zapped by a woman, but don't carry it around, dude. It's not healthy for your karma. Get rid of it.

I've never corrected anyone's spelling. You must have me confused with another poster.

Well, if the question is straightforward, yet too hard to answer, that's the best way to go ;)

I never said anything about your wife. I merely asked a hypothetical question that you could not answer.

I never mentioned any woman... karma-dude. Look, if it stung you and made you think for a moment about your ideas of what "love" is, don't try to dish it back with silly statements like the one above ;)

To all the cynics, you can't be complete as a person unless you have loved somebody other than yourself.

As far as unconditional love goes XXX, no feelings can be unconditional. You fall in love with somebody, and if you are lucky you continue to love what that person becomes as you both change and mature. Statistically speaking I understand the odds are against any relationship lasting 'til death...', but when you find one that you want to, you have no choice but to go for it, believe me.

Cynicism is fine and we all have it at points in our lives dependant upon the state of our relationships, but loving someone who loves you in return is better.

Regards
