So remember how I posted back in April that I was pulling back to focus on me. That I was going to just focus on CrossFit, get myself some asocial needlework projects and was going to take down my OLD profile? Remember that?

Well, I did recommit to CrossFit (& my fave trainer returned which helped, I had unwittingly been missing his encouragement), and I started a Sunday lifting clinic at my house for my colleagues. I've held 3 sessions so far and everyone has really enjoyed them. And I bought a bunch of needlework projects, completing 2 small ones (a card for my mom for mother's day and a tea towel with a hummingbird design on it that now hangs on the handle of my stove).

And then, I logged in to take down my OLD profile and up pops this guy with a cute smile and interesting tattoos that lives close by. So I clicked on it. And weirdly, the profile now says he lives 1000s of miles away. But I read the profile anyway and he mentioned this funny little food preference that I have and it made me laugh so I sent him a quick note saying why I found his profile, too bad he wasn't close by, like the tats, I have this weird little food preference too so I hope you have a good day. Really, I was just thinking, hey, if it makes him smile then that's good, right?

Well he replied immediately. Turns out he was moving to my area. So we spent several weeks chatting via the OLD site, then moved to email, text, phone and then finally, I met him last weekend. And swoon. I'm smitten. This feels different than everything that has come before. And it isn't that I think he's perfect. But I do think he may very well be perfect for me. I briefly told him about my M, the D, and a legacy issue related to it and he just accepted me anyway. The whole mess of xWH became a non-issue, no longer part of my story, no longer something that defines me. And I realize it's true. It likely happened before I met this man, but being around him showed me it was true.

He has been so accepting of me. So respectful. So kind. So open. I could type pages about the conversations, the sharing, how good it feels to be around someone who only wants to get to know me. There's no other angle there. I'm not filling some slot that he has open.

We're seeing each other this weekend too. I was going to wait to post until after that, but honestly I just couldn't wait to share. You all have been so awesome to me & have helped me through so many dark days. So I wanted you all to know that I've got some sunny days too. I am positively giddy right now. And I've never felt this way about a man before. Not like this. This is all new, wonderfully strange, and very welcome. Thank god I met him now and not in the midst of my D when I was thinking I was ready to date, but wasn't. The timing for all of this could not be better. Is it tomorrow yet? I cannot wait to see this man again!
