My Ep Romance...(part 1)How do I begin…Well it all started 4 1/2 months ago, when I like most EP members was searching for others who could identify with my specific interest and issues, you know, those topics that are not readily discussed with friends or family. Everyone believed me to be the settled one, completely content as a party of one and to be honest, I was. I’ve had a trail of broken relationships with men that had just turned my heart into stone. Don’t get me wrong, I was never the wicked witch to anyone, but I had convinced myself that letting a man into my life was not an option for me until…
It all started in January when I received a personal message from a young man who liked a story I just written about regret and possibility. With me being a newbie to any social network, I had no idea how this thing all worked or even why I was getting comments, fans and messages. Lol ( totally clueless)
I thanked him for his appreciation of my story and true to form, I quickly shooed him off. The next morning I received another message asking how my day was going, then another that evening wishing me sweet dreams. That continued for a week until I said to myself, this is a really nice guy and he deserves a really nice girl in his life! So I was on a mission to set him up with some nice young lady on EP who I thought would appreciate his qualities.
So our conversations began. I asked him to send me pics of him that I would personally choose that I thought woman would like to see… like eyes, smile and style that he should post to his profile. The more we corresponded the more we found we had in common. Every sentence was like OMG, me too! Our conversations went from good mornings and good nights to 18 hours of non stop yahoo IM’s 7 days a week! We never had a dull moment and I opened up to him so effortlessly until one day he said, “I think you know who I want to partner with”. My mind was spinning, everything within me was saying no way, but instantly what came to mind was my first story on EP, looking for the right person for the right reasons and he fit all those qualifications.
Now to fast forward… He lives in the UK and I live in the US, there was no way we would ever hook up! lol.. I picked him up from the airport on May 11th and we had the most amazing 2 ½ weeks of my life!! He was such a gentleman, so kind and patient with me. I hadn’t been emotionally or physically evolved with anyone in almost 9 years. We talked and laughed and snuggled for hours. He was so romantics and dare I say a fantastic lover! I’m totally smitten!!
Today is a bitter sweet day for me, as I write this he is currently on a flight back home. We plan for me to visit him before the end of the year but I miss him already.
Honestly, I don’t know how long we will last but what I can say is that he has restored my hope in love and relationship.
Thank you Baby… You mean the world to me and I will never forget you and the time we shared.
