that wonderful night


unknown

We shared the perfect night. I actually think that it was one of the best nights of my life. It wasn’t perfect because you’re such a great guy or because I was in love with you or anything, it was perfect because I really needed that at that time. I had spent too many days, weeks, months thinking that I would never be loved, no one I was interested in would ever show any interest in me, and then you came along. Me and my friend J were on a trip to London, we met up with her friend S at a pub and he had brought his friend, A. And from being introduced to you, shaking your hand and drowning in your blue eyes, to kissing goodbye to never see you again, was just perfect. Like a scene from a movie, or a chapter in a book.

At the pub we were sitting and chatting, drinking beer, I was sitting next to you. Your feet touched mine and neither of us moved our feet back. We had barely talked to each other but I could feel you press your leg against mine, so we stayed like that. With entangled legs, occasional long stares into your infinitely deep blue eyes, flirty smiles and heavy heartbeats. Even writing this makes my heart pound faster. Anyway, as we left the pub you took my hand, and it was all so natural. We stopped on the way to S's house for some kisses, and you and your British accent were so very charming. So we spent the night kissing and cuddling on a mattress on S's floor, you touching my hair, me listening to your heartbeats.

I replay this scene in my head quite often, mostly because I am so very fond of it and never want to forget it. But mostly I hope to relive it soon again, but then with someone else, someone I love.

So I just want to thank you, A, thank you for that wonderful night. Because thanks to that night I now believe that I some day will fall in love for real. Not with you, but now I know love can exist, even for me. I just have to be patient.

  4. thanks for sharing this. You give me some hope because I feel exactly the same way right now. For everyone else seems to be so easy to find someone to be in a relationship with and to fall in love. But not for me. It almost seems like something imposible to get.
    I know that it can change any minute but it's not easy to remember when you're the only one alone.

  5. i needed to read this. I too, had this almost-perfect scene that sounded like it came out of a movie. the guy was not the perfect guy nor was i in love with him but that night was so memorable and I enjoyed it alot.

    1.5months later, I am still thinking about that night and how I would have loved to relive it again. Reading this post made me a little stronger and motivated to look forward to meeting someone whom i would fall in love with for real and reliving the moment again. guessed i would have to be patient like the author. oh well....

  8. Thank you for sharing. I had a similar experience with this Scottish boy at a Danish festival. Now, 3 years later, I can recall most of what happened that night, and I am so very thankful I had that experience. Sometimes all you need is a little hope :)

  14. Ok - I'm very happy for you-that you didn't go into a crazy depressed mode, but then again how could you,you didn't even love him. Remember,you have to keep in mind the other persons feelings also. What if he thought you guys would have a future together?-and all you were doing was using him to boost your self -asstteem ... Idk think about it :)-julie

  15. hi julie, i understand exactly what you're thinking. i'm the author of this text, and i can assure you that i had more feelings involved than he did. when i arrived home i started writing him on the internet, dreaming about us having some kind of relationship, but he kept responding shortly or not at all. so i was kind of sad, but then i came to the realization that i should just be happy for having experienced that night, and i realized that i didn't like him - i just liked our perfect night.
    but thanks for your honest opinion! one should always speak ones mind.

L ... its wierd calling someone by a letter but ill go with it ok I'm so happy you responded :)it funny but I like to receive feedback on my feedback and i like to give the author an opposing view- or just something to think about- unlike all the other comments which are usually just "oh - this is so cute-or whatever" I hope - you didn't take offense to my prior comment - bc I didn't meen any. I pray you will find the love of your life and you can have nights like that one all the time. Anyways I'm going to be opening a blog in the coming week (hopefully) so visit it please!!

  22. I love this, it totally describes what happened to me a few weeks ago. I couldnt understand the feelings inside, i knew it wasnt love but my heart was excited everytime i thought of that night with that guy, but after reading this, i realised this was how i felt too. I wasnt in love with the guy, i was just thankful for a night that seemed like a fancy and feel that maybe i am a desirable person after all :D

  23. sometimes the greatest love is the shortest.

  24. i like that you just accepted it for what it was worth.

    i too had a very enchanting night with a greek man a year ago and i still frequently look back at it fondly. That night made me believe in love, and just like you said i felt as if i were in movie.

    my friends frequently question why i'm always single and i believe its because im waiting for that real great romance. not to say i dont have my fun and give people a shot but i know a lot of people who are involved with people because it is easy. i will continue to hold out for something greater.
