He was just going to walk the eight blocks but something compelled him to hop on the streetcar.
He paid his fare and looked around for a seat. That’s when he saw her. His face flashed red and his heart pounded hard in his chest. He did everything he could not to make eye contact with her.
They had met a couple of months back. She had answered an ad he placed in the newspaper. But both of them agreed that it wasn’t a match.
But here they were, face to face again. Just a couple of seats separating the two of them.
They shot each other nervous glances. Each one letting their nervous fear glue them to their seats.
That night she took action. Emailing him, asking if that was really him on the streetcar that night.
And something inside both of them sparked to life. They knew that they couldn’t let this moment pass them by again. And tossing caution and reasoning aside they took a chance. Giving their love one more shot.
They’ve been married for over ten years now.
So what can we learn from this Soulmate story?
* That love can find us when we least expect it.
* Maybe the person who you thought wasn’t right for you is just not a match for you right now.
* Keep your options and your heart open.
* Be brave and take action.
Finding your Soulmate is a winding road. It leads you to unexpected places. And sometimes the journey loops back around showing something that you missed the first time around.
And remember, your Soulmate is looking for you too!
