It was an impulsive five minutes, or so, wherein I cranked out a profile and hit the SEND— that is, 'impulsive' after 2-3 years of that article sifting its way in and out of the stacks of papers in my study.
Couldn't imagine going on something like an on-line site... but hit a non-dating spell that was too long for me. Had heard great stories about these matches. I wanted something more specific than the other sites of same that I had heard about. And figured I had found it with OKC.
My first self-summary read like a resume. I thought I would try to "un-resume" it: I've just "launched" the youngest of my beloved children (I have three; but seems like more, sometimes...) She, along with her siblings, are far from home, in colleges, grad schools, across the U.S., as is the right thing for them. And as for me, I am in the midst of much flux.
I try very hard to stay in the place of 'curiosity and open-ness and intrigue' with that flux, but more than often I land in the place of 'abject fear', frankly. I have navigated major changes, in the past, solo— and while that has worked very well (something I try to keep remembering, at present) I am now wanting to invest in a relationship as I make these changes. That timing is not without intrigue, in and of itself.
Writing is my truest passion— I'm about to have next book on-line, and will see what happens with this gem; which I can name as a "gem" because it truly "wrote itself" through me; I take little credit for it; I merely tapped it out on the keyboard as it came through.
This site has opened a world for me, of interesting connects. It is intriguing and overwhelming all at once. Hard to keep away from it, and got into the "okay, just one more question" unending-ness. Am gradually finding a pacing with it.
I am touched with the quality people, and messages, here. It is noted, of course, that I only see the men on here, so can't speak for the profiles on the other side of things. The questions can be all-consuming; they give fabulous info., and are entertaining along the way— my favorite, thus far, being: " Do you believe in dinosaurs?" (Likely, one of those 'techno-geek' type wonderings.)
