Well in the very beginning of a new friendship/relationship, I don't like to get caught up too quickly. Remember McDreamy? This one has begun in a small whirlwind but in an organized and controlled environment kind of way. Plus I can't say I have tried to stop it. But I am trying to keep my head on straight, as I recommended in December to others getting emotionally attached too quickly. And I have already said the words: "We are taking this slow," to which he has agreed. But I took some clips out of a recent email from Mr. M and wanted to share them with my readers. Let me know what you think.
Words from Mr. M:
You have left me speechless.....my heart no longer feels like it will beat through my chest... finally. :)
Wow, I really can't form much of anything that might sound like a meaningful sentence...
I want you to know, the first time I met you in Starbucks I thought, I want to kiss this girl: that was my very first impression. We then started talking and it was like every fiber of my being was wrapped up in our conversations, it's still like that when we talk deep and serious.....
I'm trying to figure so many things out about myself since I've met you, I guess that's not accurate, probably more accurate would be to say I am remembering so many things about myself. I thought that I felt like a stranger to myself. But it really seems like meeting someone you have known very well but haven't seen them in a very long time. I can't remember feeling so comfortable with myself, rather than being filled with insecurity. I'm trying to understand: is this me or an even better version?….
Well I was left with "wow" after reading this. And many of his emails are this deep and heartfelt. We are fascinated with our connection on a communication level. We understand each other and it has been the foundation from which this began. In other words, he is attractive and he finds me such as well; but our attraction from the start was our ability to communicate and relate to each other.
He is a single dad and he is still working through this new chapter in his life. As you can see in his email he is still finding himself as he walks through this journey.
Any advice you can offer to him would be welcomed. Mr. M knows I was going to share some of this on my blog. I hope you will reach out with a comment or two below.
What have you done to find yourself again (the better version) after a bad relationship ended?
Find yourself... keeping it real.
