I began to think about how my life has changed for the better over the years…and how different things could have been if I hadn’t been brave enough to vanquish my fears of meeting men online!
I remembered the butterflies in my stomach as I approached Eddie V.’s, knowing that Michael was waiting inside. We had had such an electric first conversation the night before that I was nervous that we couldn’t sustain it. The minute I saw him sitting in the restaurant window, my anxiety overtook me, and I almost turned and ran…but I didn’t. Instead, I took a deep breath, put a smile on my face, and walked to the table. And THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!!!
I was overjoyed to find that the man I “knew” virtually was even better live and in person. He was a perfect gentleman and we had a wonderful time! A little–known fact about me is that when I’m nervous, or when my intuition is speaking to me my lower lip twitches a LOT. That night my lip was going crazy, and I knew why. I had a good feeling about Michael, and my intuition was confirming how I felt. My lip was going so crazy, in fact, that I was afraid that Michael could see it! That date ended with a promise for another, which led to another…and, well, you know how this story ends…and here we are happier than ever and ready to celebrate our anniversary.
Celebrating is important. It’s a time to pause and reflect on what has been with appreciation and gratitude. I reflect in wonder at the last 8 years with Michael. Being with him has changed my life. He’s been my rock, steadfast and dependable, and because of this I’ve been able to blossom in ways that I hadn’t experienced before – and you are benefiting from that!
Michael is totally supportive of me and my dedication to helping women and that means the world to me! My appreciation and respect for him deepens each day as our love for each other grows.
And it’s all because we both took a chance at finding love on the internet. It DOES work!
