"Healing is an energy phenomenon. Hope is another word for Healing. "Cracks in the concrete are just reminders that you fall apart no matter how strong you are""Sometimes it is best to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve""Im going to smile like nothing is wrong, talk like everything is perfect, act like its all a dream, and pretend its not hurting me."
Kudos to you my friend and I am so happy for you. You did it and I am proud of you. You trusted this young man and he trusted you in return.Life only lasts so long, so while we're here, we've got to take chances while we've got them. All we can do is extend our line of trust, and hope to pull back something good. It doesn't always work out, but it's the lessons that we take from it that matter. It's all about taking chances, and waiting for the one that works out. Trust gets broken, but it shouldn't affect someone else's chance at earning our trust. You my sweet lady have learned that lesson. :)I wish you peace and oh so much happiness. Many happy hugs to you.Kitt

You're such a sweetie! Say, how are you feeling, now? I usually don't read all of the other threads, since I just don't have the time. So, I just found out that you were ill. I do hope that you're feeling much better now.
I did talk to my therapist about my concerns and she gave me some good advice and support. So, for now I'm just gonna see how things go, but be careful and be sure to keep watching for any more red flags. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders and is fully aware of the potential consequences of his actions, it also seems like if he was in a different situation (i.e. married with kids) he would change. (He actually shared a story to that effect, so I tend to believe him.) He's also fully acknowledged that since he only has to look out for himself and no one else is relying on him, he can take more risks right now. Again, I tend to believe him, plus I think no matter how far or how long things last between us, he would respect my boundaries.
We did meet up for dinner last night, which was good. (He opened doors for me and paid for everything.) We went to a great little Greek restaurant that he's fond of. It was cute, he kept listening in on this conversation that these two older gentlemen were having right behind him and commenting on it. Then, we had a beer at a bar down the street, where there was live music. I'm cooking him dinner again on Sat. And I already miss him.
