Ready but not rushing

Posted on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 2:49 PM

I am putting it out into the universe: I am ready for a real relationship. There were times when I thought I was, but wasn't. I have learned about myself over time and quite a bit recently. From my successes and from my mistakes. From what others have taught me. Through actions, through words, through silence. Yet relationships are still a bit of a mystery to me. I suppose they might always be. I suppose they are for everyone. So much unknown. So much that is impossible to anticipate or fully understand. I cannot predict how it will begin or end, let alone what will happen in between. Maybe I'll reconnect with someone I've dated before when the timing wasn't right. Maybe you'll make first contact since I hand-wrote you my email the other night. Maybe I haven't met you yet. I'm not in a rush. I'm still working on me. But things are pretty damn good over here. Just you wait and see. —In Progress
