Mr. Wonderful....11:26 PM
Two posts in one day - it's a miracle!
The reason for this post is because something nice and unexpected happened today and honestly, in looking at my last few posts, I have been quite the Debbie Downer lately. Yes, I am allowed since I am grieving but still, so unlike me.
With that said, I think I met someone. No, let me rephrase that...he has been there for a year but I never thought we would get to this place where we would seriously talk about getting together. It's a strange thing. I think it hit me today that he is definitely someone I can build a future with. And that's saying a lot since it takes a bit for me to even think like that after Mr Ex. I am cautious but optimistic. :)
I have always liked him from Day 1 and he was interested too but we never met together in the same place at the same time for anything to happen. So we stayed friends and it has been great. He's always there when I need a kind word, advice or support. he has made me laugh in times where I thought I would cry forever. And he gets me especially on my dad because he lost his father at a young age.
I seem to vibe more with guys on that level. My best friend is a guy so right there that speaks volumes.
Anyway, this one, we'll call him Mr Wonderful because he is, even on a platonic level. He's really cool. And what cracks me up is we have been friends this entire time...a whole year. And who knew we were actually building something by being just friends? Sometimes things happen unexpectedly and catch you off guard. When he called me tonight, it was a different type of conversation. He was asking me questions he never asked me before. Questions that only a guy who likes you would ask - that showed he was thinking about me today...like "What is the longest your hair has ever been and when?" "Where would you live on the East Coast?" "Oh, when's the dates for Full Figured Fashion Week?" And I said to him "You must have been thinking of me today." He answered "Yes, I was, of course, I was." Be-still my heart. I love how he doesn't hide how he feels. I know upfront - there's no guessing, no games. I guess this comes from us being friends for a year. I don't know.
All I know is a straight man would not be interested in FFF Week unless he has business there or knew a certain lady was working the event and he wanted to be her date. And he's in the education field so I doubt it's for business. He knows how important FFF Week is to me. So it's nice that he would put it on his calendar now, 8 months before the event.
We'll see what happens. Cautious but optimistic...and letting life unfold as it does. Oh and did I mention he's a cutie? LOL! Gosh, I'm beginning to feel like my old self again, It comes out in doses, lol. I'm getting there, one day at a time.
