Long Distance


I was logged on to the Mature Free and Single website talking to my long distance buddy. He was telling me that although he knew we lived six and a half hours away from each other, he still felt that he would like to get to know me more and would I be willing to give it a try to see how things would develop.

I had read so many success stories about couples that lived miles away from each other, but would a long distance relationship suit us. I agreed with him that it would be such a shame if we did not at least give it a go. So the following night we were on the phone for three hours chatting to each other non stop and both our diary entries read the same “Do long distance relationships work” I had to laugh we are so alike even in what we wrote in our diary entries.

For the next 4 nights we chatted for hours at a time and then John came up with the idea of meeting each other, he suggested coming up to see me, saying that he would stay in a hotel near to where I lived  and asked me how did I feel about that.  I was excited but worried what if he travelled the six and a half hours driveand thenwentto the expense of paying for a hotel and then we did not connect!

Surely after all the hours chatting on the site, then on the phone I would know!  The fact remains that until you see someone face to face you don’t know. This is the reason that I personally believe that it’s not worth being a pen pal for months and months, because it’s better to meet and see if the chemistry is really there.

I agreed it was a good idea and starting making plans myself for when he was to arrive which was the following Friday. I decided that I would cook a few meals for us after he had gone to the expense of travelling and the cost of the accommodation.

The day he was due to arrive I was a nervous wreck I cleaned my house from top to bottom and was watching the clock. At 3pm in the afternoon I got a phone call letting me know that he was in the hotel just minutes away from my home. That was such a good feeling but oh so scary too (but in a nice way).

We arranged to meet at 4pm and I tried on a few outfits until I had decided on the right one. I knew he was going to be very smart and I wanted to look good because you only have one chance to make a first impression. Once ready I drove the short distance to the hotel and walked toward the entrance.

My heart wasbeating so fast with so many thoughts going through my mind, would he like me, would I like him and then I saw him for the very first time.

To be continued.
