every time my heart beat faster


somethinglifelike + adriano.brodbeck

2 years ago I traveled to portugal for a month in the summer, I was there for meet some of my relatives and for a wedding.

When I first met you I was in a party in the fiance's house, I came a bit late and was with my brother and my little cousin, my brother said to me "he is staring at you", I looked at you and tried to pretend to pay attention to some thing else.

At the church I saw you again, you was right there, near to me, still looking at me.

At the wedding party you wasn't looking at me but I was looking for you.

When I sat with my family and you sat down at the same table, at some point my brother called me and said " he is taking pictures of you", later I was dancing with my little cousin and my aunt, and you came near just for hold my hand, but the music stopped and I released his hand, was late of night and I went home.

After that wedding I saw you another two times, but I hardly talked to you.

Summer was over and I came to my country, after some days I realized that my brother gave my phone number and my e-mail address to you, since that day we chatted 5 times or so, and every time my heart beat faster.

And now after 2 years I secretly hope that you still have the pictures you took of me on your phone and you spend hours looking at them.

  3. Dear B., if you are thinking this guy, then do the first move and contact him, why not?
    Good luck:) Love means sometimes taking risks, not?

    then don't have to visit this website anymore. people are just trying to express and share their personal feelings and experience. you should be respect and proud of them since english is not their first language. if you think they are annoying you, you can stop visiting this website. i don't think others would mind without you.

  8. Take.
    The.
    Risk.

    Even if it all fails, you won't forever wonder what it could have been or might have been.

    And anyway, if you don't take the first step, someone else will.

    It is so true!

  10. I don't mind the international stories at all, bad English or not. I think it helps me to know that these feelings are universal, that everywhere people are struggling with love just like I am here.
    Please keep sending your stories no matter where you live!

  11. This was a sweet little story. I hope you can pluck up the courage to contact him! Perhaps next time we visit the website we get to read the sequel with a happy ending :)

  12. I agree with *Anonymous said...

    At the same time, I share the responders thoughts and opinions, it is nice to see that feelings are universal. However, bad grammar can really ruin a good story/text. It draws the attention away from the text by distracting you (or at least me).

    I envy the people who can see past grammar mistakes, unfortunately, some of us can't. This of course doesn't mean that my grammar is perfect, but I'd at least run it past a few friends before sending it off for publication at...let's say, a popular international blog.

  13. but does anybody miss when lelove was just pictures?!?!?!?!?

  14. If you have any problem looking past grammatical errors, how are you going to live with a human being with human errors? Go somewhere else, fall in love with a car or whatever else that appeals to perfectionism.

  15. Thanks for all the support,because i know my english is not that great, but it was killing me to keep this story to myself for a long time. thanks for all the sweet comments but i dont think you guys will read a "sequel with a happy ending", but maybe, who knows? =)

  16. 3rd anonymous: I'm pretty over your bad capitalisation, I guess especially as you're a native English speaker...?

    Give props to people who try to speak another language other than their own - can you speak a language other than English perfectly and fluently?

    B : You should follow this through! A very similar thing happened to me this summer in Greece (over at a wedding too!) and it moved along...and it was the BEST!

    Good luck XX

  20. even though i love this site and i will keep coming back, IT ISNT THAT HARD TO SPELL CORRECTLY! it's getting a little tiresome to read crappy english and grammar. I mean 'you wasn't looking at me'? really? and then it changes from 'you' to 'his' in the same sentence.

    dont bother replying to this as i get that maybe it isn't their first language and they're trying. it's just highly frustrating.

  21. aww i love your blog :) Xx

  22. J´aime le loveblog!
    I love both love stories and photos with logos.. keep posting these great little stories.. :)

  23. era pior se cada um começasse a comentar e a mandar textos na sua lingua materna. Nao teria erros, mas nao entenderiam nada.preferem? (e eu podia ter escrito isto em ingles.mas nao o fiz. just for fun.)


    if you want to translate this just google it. It's portuguese :)

  24. bit creepy of the guy maybe?

    maybe im wrong, probably am, but it was the first impression i got

  25. To the people who miss when it was only photos, are you guys just lazy to read or something? Because there are like, photos with every post. Personally, I love reading the stories much more than seeing single visuals. It's nice to hear different experiences and relate to others.

  26. OH MY GOODNESS GIRLFRIEND IT'S BEEN 2 YEARS! Either make the first move or move on. For reals.

  27. Loved it. The story is sweet. If he lingers in your mind maybe, just maybe, it's worth trying to make a little contact again. Just e-mail or text him and say 'hello' with a smiley face. It would break the ice and maybe open a window of love oppourtunity.
    Go for it!
    Good luck.
    :)

  28. P.S. The photos are great. I love the golden light and how you can tell they are away from each other.
    Nice choice.
    :)

  29. I stumbled upon this site a year or so ago...the pictures are what usually grab me. I share the sentiment about poor english. Some of it can NOT be blamed on english-as-a-second language.....some of it is just shoddy. Some of it is also is very young. I do wish that there was a moderator that would edit the entries to make them more publishable. It would make me continue to read.

  33. I am portuguese, too. About bad grammar, I think you're being hard on that. Come on! Sometimes, even native English speakers write in "crappy english".
    And I would like to see one native English speaker writing correctly in any other language!
    Of course I think we must do an effort (in fact, I'm trying not to make mistakes in this response), but be more nice. Why don't you correct the text? I think B. wouldn't mind. The feeling & the story would be the same!

    P.S.: Joana, só por brincadeira, acho que tens toda a razão! :P
