We are still together; Of course, there are bumps in the road; Between us we have three marriages; one from me, two and an almost from him; five kids, two grand kids, elderly moms, we both live with our respective mothers(both widowed and aged 80),he is a truck driver and when the weekend comes, he wants to stay home and in bed. I’ll admit the start of the relationship was great, but in the middle I am like whoa! I try not to crowd him, but I also want his time and have spoken about this. He is also trying to stop smoking and that’s a journey; also I feel when I want something, I stifle it but I’m there for him but I don’t feel likewise from him; With this, it makes me want to run to the hills. but I also know that that is life and with it comes good and bad. I have thought about breaking up but I reconsider.

To even put this on here makes me believe that despite of things, God always has someone for you. Around July, I was really into another man for real, but he wasn’t interested in being with another woman after going through a bad breakup, so one night, a friend called and told me that this man wanted to talk to me, I said ok and I spoke, and he spoke. I remembered him from church but didn’t pay him no attention. But my friend told me to call him the next day, and I did; He started talking about himself, his family, I was enjoying the conversation and thought nothing about it. I am a woman that enjoys talking if the conversation is right. I found out that we had a lot in common. then he took me to his favorite fishing pier which also had a marvelous sunset and that became my favorite spot. as time went on, we got closer and now we are a couple. It is refreshing to be with someone I can talk to and feel comfortable with; I feel I am growing in love with him and plan to treasure him and vice versa.
I cannot say how this will end up, but like Jesse Jackson says, “keep hope alive”. Awhile back, I approached this man at work and just asked him if he was married, he said no, I then asked if he had anyone, he said no, and since then we’ve been talking and being friends to one another.It hasn’t been easy since his home lost it’s lights and he has had to stay with friends and I cannot get in touch with him, then I have had my own challenges, but we do see each other at work each day. I feel that he could be “THE ONE” but he has already let me know that he has just left a relationship that hurt him badly and not only that he is about to start going to school to study avionics technology, after quitting college years ago to take care of his son,so understanding those things, I cannot help but allow him to deal with those things, yet we are still friends and perhaps in time he will work on the next step.
I have met someone; the problem is that with us working two jobs each, having the time to sit and talk is at a premium.
This has to be one of the most elusive things I will ever encounter. I mean who is the RIGHT person? I have been married and i feel he wasn’t the right one. I tend to feel it’s an intuitive thing. gotta be.
I have met someone, but at present, most of our business is done online; I haven’t seen him here for the past couple of days. I hope he’s alright.
I met someone a while back; he seems like a nice brother, but there are things I feel about that hold him back; For one, if I suggest we meet, I feel resistance; Although he likes me, i hate to feel I’m smothering him and such. So, since I have death in my family and I have to be out of town, I won’t be too accessible to him. I cannot say for sure if this is the right person or not, but I’m not holding my breath.
what a far away dream; why do I say this? I still mourn the guy that passed(although that is now becoming a thing of the past); my father is increasingly getting sicker, I’m in the middle of a custody/child support fight, my job is becoming a pain but that may now change with this new job offer(hopefully). and each time I ask myself, with all these challenges, who wish to come into that? but then who is to say anything? love comes whenever it does; or like I heard a man say in a movie, “love is love”; simply put.
At this point of my life, I truly wonder about this; I would love to have someone in my life, but I gotta be realistic, I still mourn someone else, and I don’t think it’s fair to my potential mate to be in his company, and I cannot enjoy them because I still have feelings for someone else, particularly someone dead; so though I would love someone to lean on, I’ll stick to myself and lean on the Lord.
OK, I am just not looking hard, but I get lonely and all, but I wonder if this is the time; I am still grieving someone I had hoped to be a part of my life but was killed; and no one else is fitting the bill except one person but we are not close enough to deal with that; I would love to get the swept off my feet, feeling giddy, giggly feeling, but at present, it is elusive;
