While the web site and mobile site is rolling out new features, I thought I would note that one of the reasons i have not been blogging as much lately is that there is a new feature in my life, and a pretty good one.
I met a woman (on twitter, which I guess is the online equivalent of “I met a woman at a bar fight”), and we spent several months talking online, talking on the phone a little, talking on the phone a lot and watching shows, and we met for several days over Valentine’s Day weekend, and she, despite being smart, attractive, funny, and kind, decided she liked me anyway, and she came back down for a visit. She lives a ways away so we have several visits scheduled over the next month, and we’ll see where it goes from there.
And don’t bother asking for more details, because I don’t think it is appropriate for me to be as open about her as I am about myself. At any rate, it’s been a really nice couple of months for me personally despite the fact that the world is blowing up. She’s really pretty cool, and I like her a good bit, so I am hoping things continue to go well. I have learned, however, that I have a very dysfunctional co-dependency with Lily, and that Thurston and Rosie are assholes, as I suspected.
Oh, bonus- she doesn’t put up with my bullshit and is willing to call me on it, which I like and actually kind of turns me on. I like strong women. She’s also two year younger than me so we have can actually hold conversations.
*** Update ***
I should probably also state that after you have lived on your own for so long, it’s kind of eye-opening to discover how many things you thought about yourself are just not what others see in you. I always thought I was sort of an open book, but apparently I am very difficult to get to open up and give details. We were in the car on speaker phone talking to my sister, Devon, and she mentioned this to my sister and Devon state that it is a running joke between mom and Devon that everyone in my life is on a “need to know” basis. I also apparently have conversations in my head and don’t actually say things out loud sometimes, leading to “you may have thought that, but you never said it” situations.
