A year ago, today I had a date with a man
I met on Match.com.
I had done my back ground check, we had spoken on
the phone a few times, I picked a local place to meet,
I was excited as I had been for all my Match dates.
I met lots of nice people on Match all good men
and most stayed friends, but no sparks.
So that night, it was a Thursday, I chose Fat Daddy's
in the front of my street knowing that if things went
well we could continue our date at Lil Daddy's,
where there was a one man band.
If things didn't go well I had my "911 text person"
lined up to get out of the date if I needed.
Yep, always set up someone to rescue me with a
phone call if I sent a 911 text.
He got out the car with flowers, a tall,
nice looking man, I thought
"there is a lot to like here"
I had broken one of my dating rules,
'DON'T DATE ANYONE WHO IS NOT YET DIVORCED'
Something about this guy had me believing
I should let that one go because even if we just
became friends, I wanted him to be my friend.
I talked a lot, he nodded his head a lot,
we laugh about that now because he admitted
he didn't hear most of what I said so he just nodded his
For whatever reason, I broke another one of my rules
that I had held true,
I invited him to visit my cottage.
Something in him made me want to share my
beautiful cottage with him.
He was shocked i offered the visit, but not
more than I was.
We talked more and when he left that night,
I knew there was more to this one than all the others.
Since that day, one year ago, he has been my
constant Boo. We have learned so much of the other
over this year and I remain so happy that he
is my boo.
I am interested in where this little story shall take us
but for today,
"Thank you, Boo, for one of the best years I have had
in a long, long time!"
I didn't think a love like this was possible.
I had heard of it but just didn't believe it could be true.
You have showed me another way to love.
Who would have thought I could find a man who
likes junking as much if not more than me,
who had a metal detector and once he found out I
always wanted one, made sure I got one.
I look forward to the weekends that we share
whether it be at the cottage or your home,
whether we stay in and just hang out or
go junking or detecting, it is always a fun time.
I hope I bring you the calm you sometime need
and thank you for putting up with my eclectic ways,
listening to all my wild ideas,
telling me, "you nailed it"
every time I sing anything, which is just about always....
I don't know what tomorrow will bring but
I hope this year is one of many we shall share.
Happy One Year!
