I totally found him. So I get to write this post! I win!
We have the brains of okcupid.com to thank for our blissful happiness. We each had profiles up and were looking for similar things, but for some reason, the computer hadn't sent us towards each other until we'd been there for a few months.
I was hooked from his cute smirk and his beginning line and his ending line in his profile. The beginning said something like, "I have my son full time and if that's a problem, move along." **ooooh!!! A sexy devoted daddy!! Sign me up!** And the last part really hit me... the profile had prompted him to answer, "You should message me if..." and he responded "you're ready for something real with a good man."
Oh! I am! I am!!
So I emailed... and waited. He responded, chatting happened and within that first afternoon, a coffee date was arranged. Coffee that was only supposed to go for one hour and before we knew it, two had passed and we didn't want to leave. More texting followed (I couldn't talk on the phone because I didn't want the girls to know I was dating)... and he asked me out for dinner the following weekend. Dinner at Tavolata's in Seattle was beautiful, and we talked and talked long past the meal. He walked me to my car and kissed me in the light of a streetlamp, being serenaded by the ramblings of a crazy junkie up the steps from us... we didn't care. This was something amazing and no one could spoil our night! We met the following weekend for drinks and a movie and the next weekend we were done seeing other people. On October 26th, he asked me to be his and I've never looked back.
That was easily my favorite October EVER.
