For those who are new, welcome to the site. People are very friendly here and it is a great site to get to know people and to feel comfortable and welcome.
The good news is, I have met someone and we are trying to give it a shot. He is here right now and we are enjoying getting to know each other. I did not meet him here on this site, I met him on another site.
We are both very excited that we stumbled across each other.
I will try to get into chat or online again soon to post more details. For now, we're going out for a walk together! :)
He sounds so sweet, kissingtheday. I am happy for you. Your post made me all misty eyed. And you are right about not settling. Thanks for showing us what happens when you hold your ground and wait for what you feel you deserve and want. My best to both of you.
We started talking on that other s i t e for about two months. We ended up talking the first night till the sun came up.
We kept chatting online for a week, until he asked me if he could call. So ever since then, until the day we met we talked on the phone at least 3 hours per day.
He ended up asking me if I wanted to meet half way at a neutral point (he lives 4 hours from me). So we met for coffee and talked and ended up leaving the place at 3am.
Once I got back home, there were 2 messages on my phone and he told me he "had" to come and visit me. So he came up for a week about two weeks after our first meeting. It was the best week I have ever had.
When he had to leave to get back to work, I cried. The next day, when I went back to work, he had the florist deliver orchids (my favorite flower) to work. Since then I have been receiving little cards in the mail and flowers at work, and balloons.
I went down to visit him for a long weekend and had a blast. I met his family and friends.
He will be coming up to spend Christmas with me and New Year's.
He is more than what I could ever have asked for. He is kind, gentle, loving, chivalrous and romantic. He even cooks and cleans!!! He likes to draw a bath for me and he lights candles for me, puts on my favorite music and makes bubble baths for me.
Ladies, I just want to say, don't settle! I was ready to give up and now he and I are progressing wonderfully. I am NOT going to say that it was easy to find him because it wasn't. Just hang in there and you will find your love.
