Love at First Sight written by Christy Laverty

Standing in line at a bar. It is a warm summer night. The summer before I head off to University and I was out with a bunch of my girlfriends. We are at a local bar, a spot my friends have been hanging out at and they were fast becoming regulars. I had heard all about this bar, and the hot guys that worked as bouncers. Let’s face, that is a big reason a lot of ladies hang out at any establishment – eye candy all the way.

My friends and I were waiting in line to get in, the bouncers were checking ID and that’s where I spotted him, seriously sweet eye candy!  I had heard about this one from my friends. I think there was more than a couple of them that were sweet on him, they were doing some serious primping before we got up to the front of the line. The cute bouncer was checking ID. His name was Ken. He was hilarious and immediately started joking around with my friends. It was easy to tell right away why a lot of the ladies liked him, a real charmer. He had a sweet smile, big squeezable cheeks and large brown eyes with long beautiful lashes (lashes every woman would be envious of).

I tried to play it cool but there was instant attraction. It seems corny to say but I could feel the sparks right away. We ended up talking all night outside the bar. He continued to work the door and I stayed outside talking to him, being entertained by him, charmed by him. My friends, well, they were somewhere inside, I think. I kind of lost track of them, and the time.

That night seemed to go by so fast. We were fast friends. It felt like we had always known each other. It just felt right. Not sure I believe in love at first sight but as I look back to the first meeting more than 20 years ago I am not sure you could call it anything else. We dated for years, bought a house, got married and now have two children… all that out of a chance meeting at a bar one warm summer night.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
