Dena Garson: Star Crossed (Contest)
Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Destined or fated love is a popular theme in modern day romance. Almost every girl in America grew up hearing there is one someone-special special for everyone. Fairy tales speak of it. Songs are written about it.

But is it a “real” thing?

Destiny is defined as “the predetermined, usually inevitable or irresistible, course of events.”

Some people don’t like the idea that their life is pre-written. That someone is steering them to once specific path. That they don’t have a say in the outcome of their life.

But others, I think, like to believe that the person they fell in love with is so meaningful to their life that even the stars agree with and support their relationship. That no matter what else is going on in the world, their choice of partner is right. I suppose it’s a form of validation for their feelings.

Personally, I believe there are people in our lives that were destined to be there. Some were meant to guide us, some to help us grow, and still others to love and maybe even leave us. But I also believe that we have choices in our destiny. That our life is more like an Encyclopedia Brown book where the story varies based on the decisions we make along the way.

Have YOU experienced what you believe to be fated love? Tell me about it in the comments.

Even if you haven’t experienced fated love, I’d like to hear your thoughts. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered in a drawing for a ribbon bookmark (picture at the end) and author swag.

    I met my husband through my brother-in-law. He did not want us to date, Thought he was too immature. So he threw up road blocks but fate has a way.

    Hi, I met my husband 37 yrs ago. I was attempting to cross the street, tripped and tripped on the curb. Like the gentleman he is, he stopped to make sure I was okay.
    I was so embarrassed, but, when we locked eyes, it was love and fate! 🙂

    Fated Love? You caught me at a low point. Right now I am not even sure I believe in love – fated or not. Except in books of course. But, I do believe everything happens for a reason, whether we know what it is at the time or even ever find out, it happens for a reason. So yes, I guess I do believe in fate.

    Awww -I’m sorry Pansy. I agree that things happen for a reason and I hope things turn around for you. Soon. *hugz*

    Less fated I think than two ships that went bump in the night.
