Hooking up, picking up, hanging out, dating – scary stuff really, isn’t it? I know I probably don’t get many single readers here cause, let’s face it, who wants to look at wedding photos when your own wedding seems like a potential distant dream. So very far away you can’t even imagine it. But you know, you can meet that person anywhere, anytime. Tomorrow, you could be walking down the street and BAM – you meet the person of your dreams and start your life together. If not tomorrow then perhaps the next day, or the next. If you really think about it, your husband or partner was once a stranger like the people you see on the bus, or at the grocery store, or in the library. Complete and utter strangers. The jump from strangers to lovers isn’t really that big if you think about it like that. All is takes is a spark. The story of how you fall in love gets crafted over time. Each time you tell it you both play your parts, say each bit as rehearsed so buy the time your kids are born it is like a fair tale, a story that has its own rhythm, its own cadence, just like your love does. Lauren is a doctor. A dermatoloigist to be precise so you can only imagine how many people come up to her with a rash, mole or spot and ask her opinion. It’s got to be pretty annoying, standing at a bar kicking back when a stranger comes up to you and all of a sudden they are thrusting their finger or leg in your direction asking if they are going to live!! Occupational hazard? You bet. And yet, Steve, he had a rash on his elbow. From utter strangers, to looking at his elbow to falling in love and now being married. Seems unlikely? Yes. But impossible? Never. Love is magical that way. Strangers to lovers – nothing strange about that.
