dreamlike


ffffound

It was as if you had a spell over me. I was alone and backpacking through Europe. You started talking to me on the metro. I remember the easiness that came with talking to you, the interest I had in what you had to say, and how special I felt with your eyes peeled only on me. We spent the next 48 hours together, you and me. We talked and laughed about music and movies but also opened up to each other about things that mattered. You were so intelligent. Even as we walked through galleries and museums in such a historical setting as Europe, I learned more from your stories, your point of view, and your lease on life. And just 48 hours later, our time was up. Trains booked going opposite directions, more places to go and people to meet. Strangers merely a few days ago, why did my heart ache so much as you walked me to the train station and kissed me goodbye? I don’t think I’ll ever see you again, but that’s okay. Because you made me feel like I was in a beautiful dreamlike world for 48 hours, and now I know that I can’t settle for anything less. Because after meeting you, I have a taste of what it feels like to find someone extremely special, and I dream about the day when I will meet a guy that makes me as happy as you did for decades and decades to come rather than just 48 hours.

  6. I liked your little story.. but why did not you do something to keep this contact with him?
    "chemistry" is very important after all and when you find someone with whom you have this "sparkle" do not loose him..

  7. I recognize this story; once I met a boy in French and we immediatley fell for each other. Although I've seen him for only 3 or 4 days, saying goodbye was strange enough the hardest thing. From there on, he never left my mind and we've been keeping in touch till today.
    Meanwhile I met a boy here in my own country (Netherlands) and he became my boyfriend. I never ever regret this decision but sometimes I'm wondering what would have happened if this French guy and I have worked things out...
    I'll never know. xxx

  8. that's so cute , but it's strange at the same time , why didn't you ask him for his phone number or something like that ?
    who knows , maybe he was the one , I'm sure you won't find someone like him from now on , 'cause it sounds special .

  10. i also had similar experience as you, as i was traveling in europe. its so wonderful to just meet someone random, talk about life and then go to your own way. although leaving is sort of sad, but you cant really a person in few days, even you chemistry at the moment. after my "meeting" i spent some months also wondering the guy i had met and whether it would have worked out. but now i'm happy like you, just for the fact that it happened and i've found a new even better guy from my own country :)

  11. Let me tell you only one thing:
    sometimes a few things need time to happen right.

    Something just like that happened to me.
    Traveling, incredible boy, this fucking weird connection i could't even understand.
    Years passed, we didn't talk to each other. Both of us started a relationship.
    Time passed again. Both of us ended the relationship.

    Somehow, one day, we found our own way to talk to each other again.

    We're going to meet very soon.
    I'm so fucking happy. The same feeling of those days inside of me after so many time.

    I truly believe we had to wait for those years.

    If this guy you told us is really special as you believe, than you will be able see this too. You will also find your own way.

  12. Oooooooh, that's SO cute and so familiar to me! I met a guy in London one and a half year ago, and we've been together since then. Attention to the fact that he lives in Germany, and me, in Brazil. Everything's possible, honey! ;)

  13. A gorgeous story. Your acceptance with parting ways gives me hope. Thank you.

  14. GIRL why didn't you at least get his number? Beautiful story nonetheless!

  16. “Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.”

    I think this is a perfect quote for this lovely story... it doesn't matter if someone changes your life because you've known them for years, or only a few days.. the point is they helped you find something in yourself that'll last your lifetime.

    What a wonderful story, and a wonderful site.

  17. OMG HAVE YOU WATCHED THE FILM BEFORE SUNSET AND THE SEQUEL BEFORE SUNRISE. THIS IS YOUR STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. very endearing story. I had something similar as well, met this guy in Germany. Spent the most amazing two weeks together, but eventually it was too hard to keep it all together. he was from the solomon islands, i was from south africa. way too far for anything. I wish things wrent as complicated.

    I really hope it can work out for you, it didnt for us. But i have the same feeling as you, had I not met this guy I would not have known that an amazing relationship is possible. For this, I am eternally thankful, cos I am happy now.

  19. I went through this months ago in London. and now it feels like nothing will ever compare...

  20. Its so great to read that I am not the only girl in the world who's gone through this! Lucky for me we have kept in touch and will meet up next year, its so hard to be patient but I think hes worth it.
    I hope you find someone who can make you that happy forever.

  21. That reminds me of the movie 'Before Sunrise' and 'Before Sunset' hmm...

  22. Lovely. Brings back nostalgic memories of my own... :) Thanks

  23. Wow! Beautiful. You should find some way of contacting him. Finding someone that you have an exquisit connection with is what it's all about. It's the real stuff of our fantasies - finding the one who 'gets' you. I don't know, I just think you should go for it. I wish I had something like that.
    Also, your story reminded me of that Chanel No.5 commercial with Audrey Tatou - So beautiful.

  24. Yes, yes, yes- this happened to me also in France. Four days is enough to change you irrevocably. That we will not meet again makes the memory even more tragic, and maybe then, more beautiful.

  25. I went through the same thing. I'm in S.A. but met a guy who was in a band, they were down to perform. We spent our first 6 days together and 4 months later he invited me to Europe. We met in Paris and travelling through Avigno, Berlin and went off to Amsterdam. We spent 2weeks together making out in hotels around Europe. The worst pain was parting from him and heading home. Until this day I think about him and how amazing of a gentleman he was/is. We still keep intouch though.

    Love is Lovely, War is Ugly.

  27. Reminds me of Before Sunrise. I love that movie.

  28. I met a guy the same way when I was travelling. I decided to find him again. After a long distance relationship that has been wonderful all the way we are now moving together. Visas and families and all. We will make it work. So can you. Don't let him disappear!

  29. i had the same story while i was travelling in Melbourne. I spent a great day with him and had to say goodbye at the train station the next day. it's hard. but i know we couldnt continue what we had. coming from different countries and such. the connection was surreal and unbelievably lovely. such a gentleman, silly and funny and he makes me feel so alive. but like what someone mention previously...

    “Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.”

    this is so true!!! i still keep in touch with him. but i guess if i ever expected more from him and wanted him to stay in my life...i guess the whole thing will be disrupted. changed. we dont' know whether it would be perfect or just distorted. so for my case...i guess i'll just save the wonderful memory and look forward to true love.

    just sharing my story...=)))
