Leap of faith.
« on: January 02, 2017, 07:17:22 PM »
I had a thought come to me in the last days.  Greif is love with no place to go. So I reopened my ok cupid account.   It's not so much the lonely that is getting me.  It's this ache to love.  To share with people. A person. 

I found a man who has a lovely smile.  He had silly pictures with his kids up.  It made me smile for real.  He sparkled at me.  So I messaged him.  Nothing.  Sigh.  But I had this feeling that he hadn't seen the message.  So I might have check Facebook for him and found him.   But that seemed awfully creepy.  So I left it.  But I couldn't stop thinking about the guy.  What if I messaged him.  I couldn't get his smile out of my mind.  So after much deliberation. I sent a message.  As nice and non creepy as possible.  And he replied.  Said it was cute.  We talked for a few hours and it was lovely.   We escalated to Facebook friends so he can now stalk me. Hahaha

But I made a friend.  A good conversation is a great start to something.   I'm glad I was the brave secret admirer who sent the note.  He said it made his night.  I'm still smiling. 
I love you, I love you, I love you!  Forever and always I love you!

Nice that it made you both smile. :)

Good for you! It's always exciting to push off and start a new adventure.

Good luck - Mike
The war is over for me now. But those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.
