Kelly's Whadda Ya Want Wednesday

I posted a question on a friend's blog today (for which he asks we answer ourselves first), and felt it was something I wanted to include in my own post:
"Ok Kelly, looks like I am the first today...
Here's my question: Have you ever (with persons from your past or with Jeff) fallen in love (not lust) at first sight or rather on your first meeting?
Here's my answer: Yes, twice.
1) I was married in my "Old" life. I met my soon to be wife when I interviewed with her for a part time position at Burdines Department Stores (now Macy's) in Miami. I knew the moment I laid eyes on her and talked with her that she was my soul mate. She was married (as was I at the time) and I kept my feelings to myself. Five years later, we ran into each other again (and were both single), I found out that she had the same feelings about me from day one... We were married for almost 20 years (even after I told her of my sexual preference prior to getting married)..
2) After my totally coming out, and leaving my soul mate, I thought I could never love like that again... I was online one evening (yes, and got a private message from this guy that lived in Williamsburg. We started a chat (which I normally do not do with people without a picture). He invited me to dinner a few days later, we met, and well... The rest is history. I moved down a few weeks ago and plan on spending the rest of my life with this guy.
It's reassuring to know it can happen twice in a lifetime. And for those skeptics my only advice is: TAKE A CHANCE every now and then... Jim took a chance by sending me a private message, and I took a chance by driving 50 miles to have dinner with a guy without knowing what he looked like..."
Life is a generous thing if you be true to yourself and the people you love...
Over and "Out" from Toano, Virginia and "My New Life"...

Wow. That's an incredible story. Gives those of us who have just left our first soulmate (similar to yours) that there will be another out there ... somewhere.

Hi Tim
I like your question todat to Kelly's page. It seems like you have had quite an interesting life from your question.

I like the idea how you took time to talk to someone and indeed meet someone on the internet without a pic. I believe that sometimes you need to take risks in life like that because even with pics it cannot tell you all about a person.

I hope that everything is going well with your new man. I look forward to reading about your progress (and hopefully i'll get an invite to the wedding :)

Seriously though, i think you can find more than one soulmate in a lifeime it just takes a bit of looking around.

Have a great day Tim.
Kev in NZ.
