I wanted to date. I was lonely and unhappy at the time. I was single so I signed up for a couple of internet dating sites. I met a few nice ladies but nothing that worked....
Actually it was very annoying.
I met ladies that I liked and I thought MAYBE I could get to know and date but there always seemed to be some kind of hangup. I was getting toward the end of my rope.
Then I met her. She was very pretty and very nice. We hit it off very much so on a lunch date. As a matter of fact we got along so well that we planned our second date for that night. We had dinner and enjoyed the company of one another. Afterwards we walked in the park and shared a romantic first kiss in the moon light.
What a great evening. I went hope happy and hopeful that maybe this was the one.
Of course the next day I got the "I'm not ready for a relationship/I don't know what I want" email AGAIN.
I through in the towel and gave up. No more dates. No more searching. No more anxiously checking my email. No more searches on Match.com. I was done dating. It was too much.
I was trying too hard. Hoping for something and not even knowing what it was. I was lost but was OK with that.
I made a decision to stop right then and there.
You know what? That's when Autumn walked into my life. We went out. We hung out. It was light. It was fun. No expectations. No tomorrow. Just two people seeing each other with no rules and no games. We just had fun and filled a void for each other. It was an amazing time for me to figure out what I wanted and to learn about ME and who I was without trying so hard to be the other half of another.
I stopped looking.
Then Autumn set me up with Teresa...
Just when I stopped looking is when I found everything that I'd always wanted. Life truly is amazing...
