You've Got Mail: Have you seen this movie? What if I told you something similar was happening to me?… Well close… ok not really close… but it is correspondence between a guy and me happening through email!
When I was in my later teens and early twenties there were several guys and girls that were my age in my youth group across the state…. Some I didn’t associate with as much as others. There was this one guy who went to a nearby church and I knew him… but I wouldn’t exactly say we were friends. But he knew who I was… from a distance… from a ‘she’s a dork and not exactly in my league’ kind of distance.
God has such a great sense of humor. I laugh out loud every time I even think about what is happening. All these years later… he is pursuing me through email (at this stage) from his finding my profile on POF. Now mind you, apparently he cannot tell from just my picture and my first name and short profile… who I am after all these years. So I just plainly think it’s funny. He never intentionally ignored me nor was he ever rude, etc. but if you knew me and this guy back then, you would know we would never have ended up “dating.” He is part of a wealthy family... and blah blah blah.
Well he is now divorced, a single father and after all these years… he is attracted to a short profile on the very girl that earlier in life he wouldn’t have thought twice to even take out for coffee, let alone try through email to get to know her better and eventually ask out on a date.
Oh the joys of God’s sense of humor. I am thoroughly enjoying watching this one play out. I don’t know how long I will wait before I reveal who I am… I mean come on... I don’t look that different do I? Not sure my nerves could handle an actual face to face meeting to reveal this one… but I am up for suggestions, from my blogosphere friends…
Anyone, Anyone… I am waiting… enjoying the fun while I wait, but waiting.
