Just short of a year ago....
I met a sweet man on Match.
We dated for a little bit.
It didn’t work out at the time. We kept in touch, basically through FB, at first.
He was in a bad place. His father was very ill, and shortly after we stopped talking, his Dad passed away.
He ended up in a short relationship. I was seeing someone.
We still texted, went out as friends a few time, all the while seeing others.
We talked about others and were never quite on the same page. I’ve always liked & cared about him, always felt comfortable with him.
There was that one night, he was going through a rough time, we had too much wine, and well, you know. But I knew at that time, not to get hopes if more.
Honesty of our situation was always there. We both had some issues to work on, and people to truly put behind us.
He has listened to me bitch about an ex, and another that caused me pain. I’ve heard stories of all hIs terrible choices in women. We’ve met each others family’s.
I spent Easter with his, he came to dinner, when my Dad visited. We spent Christmas Eve in front of his fireplace, because my kids were not with me, and I didn’t want to be alone. I’ve sat at his daughters softball practice,played Wii Just danced, and brushed her hair.
Timing can really be everything. Finally Letting go of the wrong things, may, just may have given us a new chance.
I think our books are finally aligning.
Something new was discussed, something never said before.
There is good change happening.
I consider my self lucky that he’s a friend, and if this is evolving where it seems to be, I’d be even luckier!
