Meeting Her

Do you believe in love at first sight? 

Do I? Well, let's say I believe in attraction at first sight.

I remember how I met my first boyfriend: I was at a party, sitting on a sofa at the back of the room when four or five guys walked in, among them my boyfriend-to-be. It was Hollywood material (minus the glamor: I had pimples and was probably wearing something horrible). I looked up, saw him, and in that split-second I knew I wanted him. Edit: Of course my innocent teenage-self wouldn’t have put it quite like that. I probably thought something like Oh, that guy is cute

Anyway, the point is, I was in this room with maybe thirty guys, some of whom must have been nice/funny/smart/handsome/you name it. But none of them interested me in that way. And then he walks in and bamAnd I was right about that bam, because we ended up dating for three years.

So how does it happen? Yeah, I know, something to do with pheromones. But still. I mean, did his pheromones really travel within seconds across the room to let me know his genes were better suited to mine than all the other guys’ genes? Maybe. But I prefer to believe there’s something else involved. Call it fate. Call it magic. 

Whatever it is, I love first-encounter-stories. If you do too, you might enjoy my latest release:

MEETING HER: A romantic short story

Sometimes you just know.

I’m not usually shy with women. Women love me. I used to be the college team’s quarterback, for crap’s sake. Girls used to throw themselves at me. 

So how come I’m just standing here in front of her, speechless?
