People Say It's the Chase

I am a romantic - not a hopeless romantic.  I know we are all busy with our own lives, sometimes too busy to tell or show someone that you care.  When you find someone special, you do everything in your power to make them happy, to give them support, and just altogether shower them with love.  

I recently found someone.  I find myself mad to keep pursuing when nothing is reciprocated.  Yet, I cannot seem to help myself.  I honestly don't know what is wrong with me.

I think of myself as smart and attractive.  I haven't had too many relationships.  When I meet someone, I am extremely loyal and devoted.  During the times that I am single, I have had to turn guys away because physical attraction cannot be the only element in a meaningful relationship.  I want to find a connection, someone who is willing to give me the time and the day.  I want to love and be loved.

Good for you and hopefull the hopeless romantic in me will win ESPECIALLY after I thought i had met at nice man from EP who turned out to be a jerk!

Believe it or not, the chase is over. :) The hopeless romantic won! What started out to be a EP heartfelt story has a change of story line which I will update here.<br />
<br />
Sometimes things work out in funny ways. I have had my share of disappointments. Through a span of 2 years, I laughed and cried with this guy who is now my boyfriend. I am never one to believe in drama.<br />
<br />
We had issues in the beginning, ignored them, addressed them, stopped seeing each other as a result, and started talking again --- and the cycle repeated itself a couple of times. At the end (or the current moment), we couldn't be more thankful for trying to make this work.<br />
<br />
My boyfriend and I have now been very happy for the past year or so and it's strange to even try to think back on the loneliness. <br />

I love you with all my heart, babe. You make me feel amazing. I cannot wait to share the rest of my life with you. I wonder what you would think or say if you read my 12/5/06 story.

Persons Are Gifts ............................ wrapped !<br />
Some are wrapped beautifully:<br />
they are very attractive when I first see them.<br />
Some come in ordinary wrapping paper.<br />
Others have been mishandled in the mail.<br />
Once in a while there is a special delivery !<br />
I am a gift to other persons !<br />
Am I willing to be given to others ? A person for others ?<br />
Do others have to be content with the wrappings ?<br />
Never permitted to enjoy the true me ?<br />
Every meeting of persons is an exchange of gifts.<br />
But a gift without a giver is not a gift ..<br />
It is a thing devoid of relationship to giver or receiver.
