What is it about meeting someone new that makes us act so "giddy", "excited" even silly at times? Or as my friend Monies would say "guudy" ( sorrry if I mispelled your "made up" word!!!) We've all been there at one time or another. We meet someone, there is mutual interest, contact information is exchanged, as are a few flirty banters and we go on our merry way...expectant!
I have a couple of friends who are going through the very thing I'm talking about! They are useless right now! All starry-eyed and grinning from ear to ear ALL the time... Zoning in and out of conversations, their minds elsewhere...And that's a great thing! Truly it is! Sigh, it's been a very long time since I have been in "that place"...and I'm a little jealous. But not in a "I hate you" kind of way, rather, in a "Sigh..." kind of way...
Maybe it's time to let down my barriers. Maybe it's time I start trusting again...
It's a bit intimidating this meeting new people thing. Meeting men. Nowadays, dating is so difficult and cumbersome. Everyone is trying too hard, not hard enough, annoyed at the mere thought of making an effort to get to know someone; going out! We all complain about it yet we continue to do it!
How else will we get there? To where he/she is?
Sigh. So yeah, I'm itching to have "that feeling" in my life again.
I'm ready now.
