Love is Real, Love is Consuming

I’m sure you’ve been asked the following questions before.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Do you believe in soul-mates?

Insights of a hopeless romantic. No, I don’t believe in love at first sight, but I DO believe in lust at first sight. I don’t think you can love someone just based off of looks but I do believe in connecting with someone immediately on a level you haven’t before. Is that love? No, but it could be.

Soul-mates? I want to believe that there is one person we are meant to be with, but don’t you think that would be rather cruel? There are over 7 billion people in this world and you are suppose to find “the one” in order to live out a fairy tale? I would like to think that we have a few soul-mates out there.

I think love is so much stronger than that.

I am not a relationship expert, nor do I pretend to be so my theories are skewed to my own personal experiences. Alert: here comes my love story.

The best kind of love that I have been and still am in, was when I was least expecting it. I feel like this is what all of the old people tell you when you ask them how they met their spouse but I really didn’t see this guy coming. We were friends. Really good friends. When we met, it was an instant friendship that was filled with laughter, jokes, and music. I didn’t have a clue that I really was starting to like him until he leaned right over and kissed me. At that moment, there was no question in my mind that I wanted to be with him.

Here he is! My man. December 2014.

Here he is! My man. December 2014.

Pause, you know that saying that says you’ll just know when someone is right for you? I have never had this happen to me. I was always filled with indecision and debating what I should do but this time? Doubt didn’t have a chance to fill my mind before I told him I’d be his. I knew.

Everyday was filled with adventure and the more time that passed, the more I fell in love. We were flawlessly entangled in each others lives and to this day I can’t believe how easy it was for us to get so far. He is my best friend and my go to person. He makes the ugliest faces, has the best laugh, and never stops loving me. I’m truly grateful to call him mine. HOW DID I GET SO LUCKY?!

ANYWAYS- where I’m going with this is that I am in a love that consumes me. With every day that passes, I feel so blessed to have found someone who can make me a better version of myself. I truly wish for everyone to find this kind of love.

So do I believe in love at first sight? No. Do I believe in soul-mates? Not really. Do I believe in a love that can consume you? I do. Because I feel like there is no better way to love someone.

Until next time,

Anna Marie

    We have met! Last fall semester! It was at the musical that Zach had to see for points in Theatre class. I had long curly hair then and sat not far away from you two because I was there alone. Hahaha
