I arrived there on a plane, looking for adventure, looking for fun. I was running away from ghosts from my past, trying to get over the man who broken my heart in two. I had been putting on a brave face for my friends and family but I was dying on the inside, a piece of me had gone missing. I came to Iceland hoping to find that piece.

I sat in the hostel lobby with my friend laughing over the shenanigans of the night before when you looked over and our eyes met. I looked away because I was shy, because I was embarrassed to be starring at such a gorgeous stranger. I haven’t been this attracted to someone since meeting my last love; it was refreshing to feel something again. I came to this place with a broken heart, with feelings of sadness and remorse. I came looking for something new, something to make me forget all the pain; I guess I came looking for you. You came over with your friends and bought me a beer, you smiled and I blushed. “Thanks, you didn’t have to,” I replied and quickly looked away. The conversations at our table continued but all I wanted to do was talk to you. Our eyes kept drifting towards each other and I felt like your gaze was touching my soul, the connection was instant, and I knew you were something special. We left the hostel and went to a local pub; we stood on different sides of the room just starring at each other. You finally came over and told me how beautiful I was, how could I resist that cute foreign accent? How could I resist that smile? We kissed and I knew instantly that you wanted me as much as I wanted you. We told my friend we were going to leave and go back to our room, she told us we had one hour, so we rushed and took a cab. We spent the whole night worshipping each other’s bodies, it felt good, and I finally felt free. We talked and we laughed and when we checked the time we had been locked in my room for 6 hours, the time had flown by, it had felt like 1 hour. All the pain and frustration that I had been holding onto disappeared, you made me feel whole again. Your touch, your smile, your love gave me back what I had been missing. Who knew that a perfect stranger could cure a broken heart? My friend came back to our room so you had to leave. We weren’t ready for the night to end but what were we suppose to do? We said our good byes and talked about how we would one day meet again, both knowing it was unlikely. Neither of us mentioned that this was the end of our Icelandic fling, neither of us wanted to spoil the moment. After you left I laid in my bed smelling the scent of your cologne wondering if I would ever see you again, I couldn’t sleep I was too excited thinking about the events of the night. I have been home for one week and I still think about you. I thought I would feel regret or remorse for having a one-night stand but I feel invigorated, I feel whole. I write this because I want to say thank you Mr. one night stand for giving me a piece of myself back that I have been searching for. I will never forget you.

Love,

S.

  2. Beautifully written. I too had a similar experience last week, and I feel so wonderfully free. Thank you for putting that feeling into words.

  3. I don't want to ruin things for you, sweetheart, but have you considered the idea that he's just a womanizer who wanted to get laid, and telling random girls how beautiful they are in order to get them in his bed is just a routine for him ? Romantic story, no doubt.

  6. Dear S., reading your entry made me feel all cozy and warm inside -- I have experienced the exact same thing some time ago with the only difference being the location: Hungary not Iceland. I know what it feels like to meet a perfect stranger, I know how much a night like this can affect and change you. And believe me, it will affect you forever.. To me my night with the perfect stranger still is one of my most worshipped memories, still seems unreal and too good to be true - even today, two years later.
    There is no need to feel any regret or remorse for it! The only thing you need to feel is happiness and gratefulness that your ways have crossed. Enjoy the memory of this night (you will forever).

  7. I guess that's one way to make yourself feel better about such a slutty mistake. If you continue down this path you'll only let your heart and soul deteriorate- one piece at a time with each Mr. one night stand you have. I suggest you find something more substantial to fill the missing pieces of your life.

  8. @anonymous: I suggest you try to find something other than trolling a love blog to fill the missing pieces of your own life. Pretty pathetic, from this perspective.

  9. Joanna and anonymous, she has already stated it was not a mistake. Sometimes you just need to feel like a woman again, in control. The woman is not just the madonna, the mother, the goddess, she is the temptress, the whore, the artist. Both sides need to welcomed, how can we be whole otherwise? If he was a womaniser, good on him, she got what she needed from the relationship. We need more than to be loved and adored, the woman is a dark creature too, not just a princess. Dear S, live a fulfilled life. Make mistakes and worsip them. Not every one night stand will fill you with such invigoration, but for now, know that you live for yourself, not spending your life looking for mr right. Because he won't want you if you look desperately for him. I wish you all the best.

  10. Joanna, I don't know why it's importan if he is a womanizer or not. You can't always get a Mr. Right but a Mr. Right NOW. And obviously he was her mr. right now..
    Wonderful story, S. x3
    I healed my heart nearly the same way, some time ago..

  11. I think it's really great that you managed to make this experience have a good and strong feeling that helped you to go through your previous dissapointment. But i think it's really naive of you use terms like "his love" and "soul", to describe HIS feelings TOWARDS you. I mean, guys do that all the time and it's meaningless to them. Women is that have the tendence to romantize everything. Anyway, good it felt romantic TO YOU.

  12. Amazing, this post has got to be the most honest sharing i have ever read on Le Love! I'm glad that you used this interaction as a way to heal, rather than create a false hope of meeting the guy again, falling in love, getting married, etc. etc. As you know, these interactions are rare. Cherish it for as long as you wish!

  13. One true love:

  14. i like this! the nasties can bugger off. if you can say 'guys do this all the time', i'm sure girls are entitled to do this at least once. no?

    glad you got what you sought from it, S. power to you!

  15. Sometimes, it's good just to feel wanted after a heartbreak as devastating as this one seemed to be for Ms. S.
    Not only is she not a slut, she's a level-headed woman who sees this for exactly what it was...a one night stand. It's 2011, this woman should be able to be in control and feel liberated by this experience, and any other experience she can find positivity and healing in. Fucking prudes.

    Good on ya, S.

    I wish to be like this also...to be able to draw pictures with words.

  19. I do have a Mr One night stand too, who made me feel alive again. Even for just one night, I felt right in his arms.
    I woke up and I was ready to live my life. Weird but so true, thank you.
