Is it Fate? Destiny? Or Dumb Luck?Page 1 of 1    
Do you belive in Fate? Do you believe we are destined to be with another person? Or is it just plain old dumb luck?

What do you believe guides us into our perfect relationship?

to paraphrase forrest gump...i think maybe its both....fate only leads you to an oppportunity...what you choose to do with it is your affair.....and if you are not paying attention because of something else fate could pass you by without you ever noticing it was there...but if you are lucky enough to find and keep that one you are supposed to be with the romantic in me cannot accept that it was dumb luck that brought you together...like it was luck that brought vivian leigh back to bogart in casablanca...i dont think so.thanx.

I believe it is the work of the merry prankster, whose playthings we are.

Finding a love is fate, someone who comes at any stage in your life and adds to your total life experience....

Looking too hard, leads to dumb luck, that person you find when you are lonely and terribly unhappy, and you think it'll work out, but in reality you know "it" just isn't there....you are just trying sooo hard...

Destiny?.....Destiny is the moment when you find The Love Of Your Life....that one person who makes you feel like your heart is walking around outside of your body....the person you would give up anything for, yet they also love you so much they would never want you too...its Destiny, when your mind is clear, your thoughts are pure and loyal, and you wake up in the morning and know that there is no where else on earth you would rather be...

Love is a choice.

Sometimes a poor one but nevertheless, a choice.

A sprinkle of fate/destiny or dumb luck but in the end, we're the ones who open ourselves up to the possibility of delight or despair.

I believe destiny present it self to you and your choice to take it from there as I do now believe in partially astromatch, and having been with all star signs three times over I can tell which one is good match and which one just fate, and my choice to carry on and make it our destiny.

Don't you dare try to debate me because you will lose. If you rebel against chaos, you will suffer unimaginable consequences, too horrible to even mention.


Don't worry, I am laughing too much to be debating you. Besides I think it would be a waste of time to even try to debate you.

I think of it all as a mix of dumb luck and falling with style. We can't say that there is no 'pattern' to finding love or love interests but at the same time we can never claim complete control of the pattern.

I don't believe in fate or destiny.

I believe fate is like luck. You make your own. If you take an opportunity and it turns out great you can go ahead and call it fate if you want. Without the chance it couldn't happen but without you taking the opportunity it wouldn't happen either.

It is fate, all the way. Some are too busy or unaware to notice it when it happens to them. Fate is something you have to believe in and accept in your life, in all that you do. If I believe in any type of religion, I'd have to say the religion in which I believe is Fate.

Seems like Fate is winning out, but I have to say I am more inclined to go with the dumb luck theory.

You make your own life heaven or hell when you choose your person to love. It is not "I was meant to be with such and such...." Otherwise we will all be happy....

When we choose a person, we either succeed or fail. It is that simple. You choose the type you are attracted to, and attraction does not always guarantee you will spend the rest of your life with that person....

DESTINY = CHOICES....Stop beating yourself in the head because of it...
