Hi there. Well, I got my profile set up on OKC finally. Honestly, I got off to a slow start but I did get a picture posted pretty quickly. Unbelievably I seem to have made a pretty good connection with just a picture. He sent a very nice message and made it clear he's looking for someone to spend his life with. Gulp. Admittedly, I am a commitment-phobe. I have nothing to lose so no need to feel that tiny little frisson of fear (my little pep talk moment, there).
So far we have moved to Yahoo Messenger and have begun the process of getting to know each other. I have had to remind myself this is NOT like chatting with a man you meet on AM. Chat tends to heat up very quickly with the men I've met there. Which is fine. That's why we are on that site. OKC is a more "traditional" site although there are options for the "married but looking" set and more casual encounters.
He likes sports, football especially and actually likes the same team as me! Bonus! He has a teenage daughter with whom he has a terrific relationship. Thankfully he likes to cook as I cannot. At least not well. He has a good sense of humor and seems to get mine. He does live a bit further away than I would prefer but he says he is willing to travel to meet the right person. Last night we exchanged phone numbers but it was a bit too late to call. He is a night owl! So that seems like a good beginning to me. Will keep ya posted.
