to be attracted to someone!

It's a professional situation so nothing's going to happen...but he has occassionally had to attend meetings that I have to was one of those days...Someone at the meeting asked me if it was Miss Tesla or Mrs. Tesla and I *thoroughly* enjoyed emphasizing that it was MOST definetely *Miss* Tesla!!!

And then I mentally kicked my own ass for feeling like a was 16 again.

Great to read! I had a two month fling with a guy I was so attracted to...I'm not sure I was ever that attracted to someone before.

Isn't it great?

Watch out. When it rains it pours.

You've been warned.

Just sayin'.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

Love this post!

I recently experienced this myself! Went on a horse-back ride up in the mountains---just me, my mom & the guide.

I haven't been able to stop thinking about the guide! My mom said we talked for 2 hours straight & she was sure he was going to ask for my number at the end of the ride. We had so much in common--most importantly, horses!

We're going back for Thanksgiving & my heart races just thinking about it!

It's good to know there's actually blood pumping through my heart & I'm not totally destroyed from what happened almost 3.5 years ago, because I was starting to think I was!

Great post, Tesla!!

Was he paying attention? He should definitely be kicking himself if he missed an opening like that with a beautiful woman!

Finding what life could have been....... Why didn't I see it?

It is so great when you can feel that again, whether it leads to anything or works out in the long run. Just feeling alive and all giddy and excited about somebody reminds you how it can be. I never thought butterflies where possible again - and yes, they are.

That's it made me feel alive again.

I have so many roles to play at the moment and balls to keep up in the air, I just don't have time to really even think about dating...
