Swedish Fished

there really is such a thing as love as first sight. It would have been churlish of me to stand in the way of something so crazily powerful. (You know, I really wanted to type �powerfully crazy,� but I didn�t.)

My ex became my ex when he went on a short trip to Stockholm and met the love of his life in a coat check line at a club. Within 24 hours they swore life-long allegiance, and my ex returned home to tell me the news. My response: whaaa???

Amazingly enough they maintained a long-distance intercontinental relationship for five years until my ex could get the appropriate papers to leave America behind and become a Swedish citizen….and they lived happily ever after.

Lesson: there really is such a thing as love as first sight. It would have been churlish of me to stand in the way of something so crazily powerful. (You know, I really wanted to type “powerfully crazy,” but I didn’t.)

Nice use of the word churlish. Also an incredibly mature response. Amen!

This is how I always thought I would handle a similar situation. Also impressed with how you handled it. I guess until it happens to you...it's hard to believe in love at first sight...never experienced it.
