As I am sure I have mentioned before that after my relationship with my kids father came to an end, to put it nicely, I didn’t even think of dating for quite some time. I also explained how much of a failure my online dating was (slight understatement), but I thought I would share my success as well as my failures.
About ten months ago I met a guy. It seemed like one of those star’s align, fate stepping in, kind of things. He worked at the book store I frequented so I had seen him around and thought him rather attractive and then I ran into him at an art event. So when I went book shopping we began to talk. After some awkward conversation stumbling (more on my side then his) I was sure he wasn’t interested. Turned out the flustered, red faced me had won him over. He had slipped his number into the book I had bought. I can go on for ever about the conversations, my awkwardness, my red face, and every other uncomfortable thing that usually goes with dating and getting to know someone but I think I’ll save you the pain.
The important thing is that he was actually everything I was looking for in a man. He was able to mend the holes in my heart and make me feel whole again (I am more than aware of the cheesiness of it all). We were compatible in every way and we made each other happy. I would love to end this all with “and we lived happily ever after”, but life rarely ends that way. He is at a different stage in life and so our paths have parted. There is a chance that later on in life our paths might cross once more and then who knows what will happen. But for now he is still my best friend and I am his, we talk often and he still brings a smile to my face.
I wanted to share this because even though we aren’t together any more I never regretted a moment of it, it was the happiest I had been in a very long time. He has restored my faith in love and in the male gender. I am grateful that he is a part of my life.
