I haven’t written much these days. It’s not because I don’t have anything to say: it’s because I’ve either been too busy to write or too focused on more-important things. Like getting married.
After an initially-rocky start in the online-dating scene, I made a lot of progress in a short period of time. I found a beautiful, sweet, clever woman who fits into my life almost exactly as I pictured it, in an almost entirely-unexpected way. And I provide for her the emotional connection she sought. We balance each other. And in under six months, we’ve gone from that first meeting over coffee to trying to plan a wedding and three (maybe four) different celebrations in three (maybe four) different cities on two continents. And navigating the migration process for her to come to Canada. And no, it’s not that kind of wedding: we’re truly nuts for each other. Both of us are too old to waste time and money on that stupid game. This is about being with the other half of our souls.
So, yeah, my attention isn’t exactly here. Sorry about that.
And for those looking for closure, “Lenka” and I have worked through most of our issues, and we’ve actually become quite good friends. I’m actually glad that didn’t work out, because in learning more about her, I’ve learned we would not have been a great match. Good, to be sure, but not great. It might have worked, but probably not. The woman I found is a far better match for me, and I’ve found a friendship with Lenka that will last a long time and be deeper than most.
Peace and love to y’all.
