Last week my sweetheart asked me to marry him. I have a beautiful diamond ring on my left hand..my heart is overflowing. We haven't set a date yet but it won't be a long engagement because we've already wasted so much time. I'm almost afraid to be so happy.
Sometimes in life there is a beautiful serendipity.
I have been close friends with a wonderful man for 3 years..I knew he was my best friend but I took a long time to realize that i am in love with this beautiful person.. who would have guessed. I've known he loved me for quite some time but I didn't think my feelings were romantic..until I realized I have no interest in seeing anyone else but him. My best friend is also my soulmate.
I just have to share this because its SOOO romantic.
My daughter and Son in law have been married for almost 8 years and have two small children.
Since the birth of their youngest they don't seem to get any date time but they do sweet things for each other to make up for it. This year he gave her a CD with Johnny Reid's (country singer) song THANK YOU on it and he also gave her a copy of the lyrics so she'd know how much he appreciated
all she does for their family.
( I know it isn't Valentines yet but when he told her he had a surprise she begged until he gave it to her early.)
As for me its been so long since I had a Valentines Sweetheart , I forgot that Thursday was anything special.
I hope you had an awesome Christmas and New Years.
I am frustrated these days with my large friends membership.
I still can't contact anyone via email.. I don't want to cancel my membership but wonder if anyone else has this problem.
There is a particular gentleman in Edmonton that I'd like to get to know. His handle is BIGHANDSOMEMAN.
If he happens to look at this I'd love an email..maybe I can respond if he writes first.
I can't believe its over a year and a half since I wrote my blog.
Again, I let my membership lapse because I was discouraged with the quality of the profiles that were posted from my area. Now that I've upgraded again to a gold
its still not good because the site and my computer are just not seeing eye to eye. I can't even wink at the guys who do look interesting.
I'm still single. Must be too fussy. I've had some nice dates from this and other sites but mostly they show me the kind of man that I don't want.
I don't want to even think about what it would be like to go out with a guy who posts a picture of himself in his bathrobe on his profile. ewww ! HOT ROD FOR U..not happening ever! Married, looking for discrete encounters..jerks totally.
I went out a couple times with a man who had a really nice, friendly picture, sounded like we had similar values.. Spiritual but not religious..went to a movie
and would you believe it..
he takes my hand in the dark, and places it on a fully exposed and hot piece of flesh ewww. Amazingly I didn't walk out..but all conversation and interaction ended. Afterwards "are you mad? why are you upset" When I got home I emailed the man and told him how inappropriate his behavior was. We made contact again over a year later ( doesn't everyone deserve a second chance)..and this time went to a comedy club..not dark like a movie theatre..guess what..same thing. I don't want to paw anyone in public. I'd already paid for the entertainment so again didn't leave him sitting there but stayed and completely enjoyed the performance. He pouted through the whole evening and then said how could I be so frigid and puritanical and yet laugh at that racy humor. I'm neither frigid or puritanical. I just think there's a time and place for everything.
Went out with another man who started planning our future life together on our first date..I was exactly what he was looking for..duh..I wasn't supposed to have any say in these big decisions.
Sigh.. I don't know who I'm looking for..a pleasant, funny man..presentable but not that slim and fit, sorry. I like comfortable cuddly men. I'm not Barbie and I don't want Ken. I don't want someone who wants to take over my life and start telling me everything that I should and shouldn't do. I'm pretty independent and happy with life the way it is, except I'm missing cuddles, hugs and good healthy sex in a monagamous relationship. Nice intelligent conversation would be good too.
Well that's all my musings for today..catch you later.
I recently renewed my paid membership. I let it lapse a couple years ago because it seemed the only guys I got emails or winks from were the ones who had a fat lady fetish, or married ones who were looking for a tasty side dish. Neither one of those types worked for me.
As I was reading blogs tonight I remembered that I did meet one special person on this site a few years ago. His screen name was tricyclemike . He was quite a bit younger than me but after chatting a bit on the phone he wanted to take me out for supper.
He arrived on his motorcycle with a smile and a dozen red roses, which was awesome as I hadn't had roses from a guy for a few years.
He took me to one of the best restaurants in town and treated me like a queen. We had a lovely evening but I really felt he was too young for me so we didn't persue the relationship. We did however remain friends and sent emails back and forth quite regularly. Last year one of my girlfriends ended a bad relationship ,and I got the idea that they might hit it off..so I set them up and voila..it was for a few months like a match made in heaven.
Sadly, last Thanksgiving Day Michael was killed in a motorcycle accident.
My point is:A. there are some wonderful men who post their profiles here looking for true love.
B. If you meet one who is good but not quite right for you, maybe you could do some matchmaking.. with someone on this site or even with a friend who isn't part of LF (Share the wealth)
