Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Yesterday - I was feeling low because a friend I had hoped to meet up with decided it was best we didn't meet after all... We like each other, and have been texting/messaging almost daily for a couple of months, we've seen each other 4 times, but something he said to me made me realize that I need to pull back too.

While he did want to continue chatting - but didn't want to see me - I explained that given his thoughts on the matter, I thought it best that I myself take a step back. He's a great person and someone I had hoped would want more, but the timing is off and it may never be right and I have to accept that.

It's just another reason why getting away and disconnecting will be good for me. I know some people will miss me more - like my daughters, and you my SP friends... and work too I imagine... but I also know this time away is just what the doctor ordered.

Thank you all for your good wishes - I bet you guys are anxious for me to be away so I can stop talking about it. emoticon

And so 3 more sleeps... my suitcase is out and I am slowly putting things into it. Washing up the summer clothes to freshen it up. Checking my list to make sure all is taken care of before I go.

I'm very grateful for this focus to take my mind off things ... Life is Good!

    Don't overpack. You mostly will live in your bathing suits and a few tops and shorts or capris and a sundress or two.
Flip-flops are fine every where.
A good sun hat and glasses.
(Better late than never)
I can go for 2-3 weeks with a stuffed carry-on bag.

    Sorry to hear about the disappointment. But you are worth so much more than what he apparently is able to offer. That's not a negative reflection on him. It's just what IS.

Get those 3 more sleeps. . . . you'll need 'em for the cruise!

    Aaaah, I can relate -- sometimes you have to pick up those hints from people and accept a relationship for what it is. You can't make it something it's not.

Enjoy your getaway! Hm... I could use one of those myself right now! emoticon

    There is someone out there for you - I'm convinced. Maybe this separation is just what is needed for you to decide if pursuing the relationship is the right thing to do.

I know you're so excited!! I would be!!! Three more sleeps will fly by before you know it.
