Love Finds Love

Love Draws People Together

I have this theory about love that I would like to share with you. I don’t think people fall in love because they find the right person, I think they fall in love because they’re already in love and so is the other person. Surely you have heard the expression the love connection. Have you ever observed railroad cars being connected to each other? Train cars have a locking device that automatically connects rail cars together, just by pushing them together. This is how I think love works in real life. When people live love they gravitate to love. It’s as natural as apples fall from a tree. In simplest terms love attracts love.

Love Losers Will Find Another

Another extension of my theory is that humans like certain animal’s stay with their love mate as long as both are alive. When one partner dies the other quickly gravitates to another love connection. You would think that the alone partner would wilt away without their love mate. Love studies have concluded that people, who live in love, quickly find new love partners if their mate dies. Which proves another theory I have, that love, loves love.

Before Mating Conditions Had to be Met

As you can tell I am a one hundred percent believer in love. When I found my love mate whose name is Linda, love totally turned my life upside down. I had been married before and had no desire to experience another divorce again. So I spend twenty years in a state of limbo. This limbo was created as a defense against trying again. I decided that certain conditions had to be met before I would consider a person for a love connection. They had to be childless and capable of supporting themselves, without needing me.

I Found the Value of Happiness

These requirements kept me safe and but not necessarily happy. Then one day I woke up and felt better then I have ever felt before. I remember that day as if it was just yesterday. I sat in the middle of my living room floor and watched the sun rise. I told myself this is the way I want to live the rest of my life. I was really happy for the first time in a long time. So I decided to change my life. I developed a method of doing that allowed me to embrace, that which made me happy and eliminate that which made me unhappy. This was truly a mind-altering event in my life. This is when I started to believe in love, even thought I didn’t have a clue what love was all about.

A Love Graduate

In time my oldest sons called me a happiness guru. That comment pleased me to no end. I told him it’s the only way to live. I’m not sure if he got it then but I do believe he does now. I say this because he has experienced his love connection and he knows what I’m talking about.

Love Creates the Greatest Feelings

Linda the love of my life, who I love above all things. We will celebrate sixteen years together on April 9, 2006. I feel like I’ve been married to her all my life and that’s the greatest feeling in the world.

Love Is Everything

So here’s my point, if you want love, be love and love will find you. What could be simpler then that? That’s my Story and I’m Sticking to it.
