I know that it is not good to covet. I get that. But, my journey right now is spending time with one childless couple and one with a child who have that good thing. You know what that is. They get along, and obviously love each other and when you spend time with them you can either feel chemistry or good navigation of the tough stuff or even the little stuff.
My ex e-mailed at some point. Likely she did so early in the morning. I’m totally down for a friendship, but I don’t want a close one because I am pushing 40, and now realize that you best friend is your partner. That is not fair to my next girlfriend to be close with my ex, and hell, it’s not fair to me either. So, I will read the e-mail sometime after Christmas has passed. When my son is gone and I’m cleaning and organizing. I’m not doing it today, because I don’t have the bandwidth for it.
I’m looking for that thing. The chemistry, the connection, and the endurance in tough times. I know that there is a girl out there for me. One who knows that the little silly things are not the deal breakers and that a girl like me doesn’t do any deal breakers anyway. I don’t quit working or champion mediocrity in any fashion, I don’t cheat, have never been cheated on, or have I had those funky emotional affairs.
So wherever you are right now, I am here. I have a house, a dog, a kid, a job and a lot of passion. I have also learned a whole lot on my journey in the past 38-years, but being naturally adaptable and flexible, I always learn more, which makes my chosen occupation a good thing. Meaning kids have taught me a lot, and I know that my partner can teach me even more.
