Have you ever experienced love at first sight?

Anonymous
I don't remember the exact date and time when I met her, but I was at work setting up a room for a wedding and she passed in front of me. The moment I saw her all sound disappeared and it was like she was on center stage with a spotlight behind her (I know, weird). From that moment I couldn't get her out of my mind for about a year. I noticed some coworkers decorating her office for her birthday and despite only basic greetings to her I bought her a gift. A couple of weeks later I asked her out and she told me she was seeing somebody, which was true by the way. Even after this, I noticed she was also sick for a few days so I went out of my way to get her some tea with honey lemon and spices to make her feel better ( on my day off I might add).
Eventually, I left my job and haven't seen her for a year or a year and a half. I still think about her from time to time and up to this point in my life just a mere appearance of a woman has never triggered at me before. I've been the guy to never approach his crush and seeing her drove me to break out of my comfort zone. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think experienced love at first sight... sometimes I wonder if she even kept that gift and wonders what came of that awkward nervous guy. The weird thing is, I want her to be happy with her man. I feel like it would be wrong to selfishly hope for a break up, even if it meant I got a chance.
