A little about me



Polly had asked me about my dinner date that I had last weekend. Here it is Saturday again and time for another dinner date. Wow that week went by fast!!
About me....... I have been divorced now for 3 1/2 years, finally my life feels peaceful and normal. I got rid of all the drama when I got rid of my ex. I am dating a man that had been my platonic friend for 15 years or so. When we would get together we always had a good time laughing and talking for hours. I never thought anything about it, just happy to have him as a friend. Now here I am dating this man. We still laugh and have a good time and there is no drama and no arguing. Life is peaceful and fun. Things are not perfect though, he lives 40 minutes away and we only see each other 2 or 3 times a week. He must really love me because he had to trade his truck in to buy a new one because the old one had too many miles on it from driving to see me, lol. One Sunday evening this past January he gave me a diamond ring over a game of Scrabble, (told you life was peaceful, lol) I am too old for a "promise" ring, so I named it my attachment ring. So I am official attached! My 22 year old son gave his approval which means a lot to me. He watches out for his mother:-)
Life is good for now and I feel very blessed.

Michelle,
That is such a sweet story. I'm so pleased to hear that you're finally de-stressed and de-lighted. You know I knew my husband since I was 12 years old and we never started dating until I was 28. Good friends make the best lovers!!

Love,
Julie

Being "attached" to a good friend, is the best type of relationship:) I am very happy for you.

What a great story! I think, to be happy in a relationship, you have to be friends first. You have to be able to laugh over a game of Scrabble, LOL! It's so sweet that he'll drive all that way to see you. May you have many happy years together!

That is so great! Thanks for sharing!!!! Very happy for you, life is too short for the drama. I have been extremely happily remarried for almost 11 years. He was my friend first, then my bestfriend, then my everything. Happy, happy for you...

Oh my gosh, Michelle! I'm so, so happy for you!!! Attached is just perfect. 40 minutes isn't terribly far though. My husband and I lived about 90 miles apart and I had two young children at the time. It was such an exciting time. And we knew that we had to get married quick because the driving back and forth was killing us =) Blessings for you both... Polly (p.s. so are you engaged officially?)
