What's LOVE got to do with it?

Have you ever been in love? Not just loved someone, or lusted after them, but in love.
Yes, but only once.
Yes, several times.
I don't believe in love.
I'm not sure I know what love means.

findings your soul mate only comes once in a life time, but unfortunately my life experience has shown me this will usually occur after you are in a committed relationship. It's not often you meet a person who has the other half of your soul or your love

The votes seem to agree with us, guys. . .the "real" thing only comes once in a lifetime.

Sultan, you'll heal. . .with time, but you'll never be the same. I'm a living testament to that. But the biggest lesson I took away from it--and I'm having this reaffirmed for myself as time goes on--is that so many people NEVER have that "big, big love" experience. They live mundane, passionless lives without ever knowing what it feels like.

And Caliente, I agree that it seems life does deal us these impossible situations. The other half of my soul had three young children to consider and an ex-wife who was threatening to take them where he'd never see them again if he married me. He returned to her and is with here still--unhappy, but doing the right thing for his children. To me, even though it tore me apart, he's a bigger man for the sacrifice that cost us both our happiness and each other.

There's a song Elton John did with Leann Rimes that used to make me cry buckets every time I heard it. One particular verse, sung by Rimes sings:

You are all I'll ever want,
But this I have denied,
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts
I wish I'd never learned,
What it is to be in love,
And have that love returned.

Is it better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all? I think the jury is still out on that one. My own answer varies from day to day. Sometimes I'm okay with it. Other times. . .well, we may never know. . .

Thanks for dropping into the grotto, gentlemen, and for generously sharing your thoughts!
