I still remember the instance I met my wife six years ago, because I fell in love at first sight. It was during my last year in university and I was on internship. She and several of my classmates were also on internship in the same firm. Before I met her, I had sworn never to fall in love again as I was going through a bad break-up. Our meeting was coincidental; I was asking for directions to a house we would share with my classmates during internship to cut down on costs. I was drawn to her by the inviting smile, cool demeanor, maturity, and kindness. A closer look at her revealed she was petite, pretty, and well groomed. I was ashamed that I had not noticed this girl whom I had shared classes with for four years.
Her tiny firm handshake left my body overwhelmed with unexplainable feelings. My heart was beating rapidly and my skin turned pink from blushing. I experienced this tingling sensation and got goose bumps all over from this simple touch. I felt that I could share even my darkest secrets with her. I did not want to leave her since I felt this overwhelming urge to protect and know everything about her. There was this outer magnetic attraction, profound inner connection, and exhilarating euphoric chemistry that I had never experienced with any other girl. Right there and then, I knew that she was the soul mate I had been searching for years. When I looked into her beautiful eyes, I could see the core of her pure soul and knew that my life was just beginning. Luckily, she felt the same way about me and we were inseparable during internship.
