In a few days I'm going to meet a friend of a friend of a friend. The latter two friends got together and were talking bout their two friends, the first friend and me, and decided that the two friends of the friends needed to meet. Sooo. We are going to meet.
This all started, gosh, a couple months ago! Several things came up, first for him, then with me, and after a few telephone conversations we decided now is the time to do this thing. Soooo. Soon we are having lunch and will test the waters to see if we have enough in common to make it worth while to arrange another meeting. I know very little about him, I haven't asked a lot, because I want to make my own mind up. I have not idea what he looks like. I didn't want someone telling me things that would give me a preconception. How much does he know about me? I have no idea.
What I do know is that he was widowed not long after I was, around two years ago. I know that he misses companionship, and that is what I miss, too. That's a good start, because neither of us is looking for anything beyond a friend to hang out with. I like that. If more comes, so be it. If that's all there is, so be it. Yes, I like that.
This is a whole new era for me. I haven't had a date in, let's see, uhmmm, 34 years. Gulp!
