I just posted this on Facebook, then thought “If you’re serious about this, post it on the blog too.” So here it is.
After many years of clearly not being ready for a romantic relationship, then a couple of years of melting – and also getting more solid – I’m declaring myself ready and open for love. My heart has been softening and opening in so many ways – including grief at the deaths of so many friends. I have also been very touched by feelings of fondness for women friends who for one reason or another are not appropriate or available for romance. Exploring what is and is not possible with them has been like aerobics for my heart.
You, my Facebook friends, know me to one extent or another. (And you who have been reading my blog know me in some ways very well.) I’m asking you for support and cheerleading, visualizing and holding the intention for success for me in this area. affirmation of how you see me as ready and as a good prospect for romance – and matchmaking! I trust your judgment more than Match or e-Harmony. Such a pool of cool people have got to know lots of really great single women. I can’t promise to keep you posted about the whole process on Facebook, (or on the blog) but I may message you about how it’s going with matches you send me – hell, when things get tricky I may look to you for coaching – and I may actually post here about some of the changes I go through. Ready though I think I am, this may put me through some changes.
Thanks for your support. (And thanks to Mark Medlin for suggesting this bold strategy.)
