I Fell In Love With a Stranger

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 811 People

    I met this girl on the first day of school,

    we talked a little because she is a shy girl and I'm more of an outgoing person. I didn't really think of her much I didn't even get her name but the very next day I saw her again. Same place. I thought she was beautiful but nothing more, but as the days past by me and the more...

    Your beautiful blue eyes made me open mines

    wide you came in with your cheshire smile lighting up the whole room on fire small conversations tantamount to subtle flirtations trembles an attraction in between blushing cheeks and batting eyes and then, a glint of gold, what's that? Oh, i'm sorry- you're married

    I was watching a play,

    when I saw him. He caught my eye when he flipped and jumped and landed completely silent on the stage. For the rest of the play, my eyes were always searching for his costume. After the play ended I didn't even have the courage to go up and say 'hi' when he was standing so close...

    There Is This Thing Called Love At First Sight

    But I never believed it. They say, true love comes at the most unexpected times. I'm not sure if it's true love yet. But at least I know that I have recklessly fallen in love with a stranger whose name, personality, likes, dislikes, friends, and dreams I didn't know. The most...

    I met this boy a week ago from my friend.

    But on the very first day we cuddled for a long time with little kisses in between. The next day was Monday. We went to the movies and held hands. Afterwards we just texted. then that lead to calling on the phone. and then that lead to FaceTime. Now it's been 6 days since I...

    The State Trooper

    August 1988 I laid my eyes on the most beautiful man I had ever seen in my life. I felt love at first sight, without a doubt. I went to a town meeting with some friends (I never go to those and haven't gone to one since). It was about the town's hiring policies for the local...

    The Futility Of It All

    The sun was out, but it was a little cloudy, not too long before rain season arrived. I was on my daily commute. As I walked into the train station, I saw her standing on the platform. I then became vaguely aware I was staring, although she didn't notice. The train arrived within...

    Do you ever look into someone's eyes

    and right in that brief moment, feel deep down in your soul that there's something special, something magical, maybe even exciting, but that's when the sad reality sinks in; the real truth, the real pain and fear that the feeling won't last very long even though you deeply want...

    Well, I wouldn't exactly call it LOVE,

    but I remember this one guy at the grocery store. My mom sent me in to do her shopping and to pick up a few things for myself. I was looking for pads and tampons, and for some reason, he was in the same aisle (maybe shopping for his girlfriend? How sweet!). I was about 14...

    I've always thought that maybe it's best to

    marry someone you don't know too well and fall in life with the person they are, instead of marrying someone you already know well and expect them to change.

    Even now I can't stop thinking of him.

    I do it the way I breathe, the echo of his voice in my heart beat. I don't even notice it's happening until I fix my mind upon it like the blinking of an eye. His essence is in everything I do. He's a part of every thing I am.

    once in a 711 and we locked eyes. I got embarrassed and we never looked at each other again. I regret that I didn't ask his name or memorized his face. Every once in a while, I have this weird longing for him.. searching for the crowd. I don't know if he's feeling the same way...

    I saw a boy on the train this morning.

    He was reading a book, and we made eye contact just about twice. I was only on the train for 15 minutes but I can't stop thinking that I missed something huge. I fell in love with a boy I never even spoke to

    It was a long journey by a train.

    People sitting besides us happened to know each other and she came to sit next to me as a result. I wanted to sleep but she was so talkative. Next, I know is I wanna know everything about her. We talked for hours till one of us had to get off ... I miss her !
