Long Distance


I logged on to The Mature Free and Single website and immediately went to my inbox to see if I had an email from John who was my long distance buddy.

Right from joining the site John and I had a good connection; we emailed each other daily and followed each others diary entries. He had told me that he was going on a date the day before and I was keen to hear how it went.

Just as I expected there was an email from him saying. When you read this come through to me for a chat which was easier than emailing back and forward. I clicked on his profile to check that he was online, he was. I pressed the chat button and waited for him to connect.

Hello Gorgeous he typed. Then he began to tell me all about his previous date telling me that she was a lovely woman and they had both had a great time. I felt my heart sink a little but then thought to myself don’t be selfish. They had shared coffee and cake and then gone for a walk round a local market and bought a few things, he bought her a bunch of flowers then he walked her back to her car.

Are you going to meet again I enquired (thinking all the time, I don’t really want to hear the answer) No he replied she was a lovely lady but I did not feel the spark. Oh dear was my reply secretly smiling to myself.

What about your date he asked me. I went on to tell him that unfortunately I had not had the best of dates after meeting someone the previous evening who talked at me as opposed to having a conversation and that I too would not be seeing him again.

He commiserated with me and we both had a laugh and said back to the drawing board. We chatted a bit longer then signed out and I went to bed.

About 3am I was wide awake and decided to get up and make myself a hot drink, I went into the lounge and picked up my laptop thinking I would log on to the dating site and read a few diary entries.

I logged on invisible I was aware that there would be a lot of night workers online but I was not looking to chat to anyone, I was just looking to read the diaries

I had just started reading when John appeared at the bottom of my screen. I was amazed and I looked at his profile and he looked at mine. Then I sent him an email sayings are you okay?  what are you doing online at this time.

He replied, this is so weird I woke up and thought of you and then for some reason felt I should come online! I know I live a long way from you, but you tick all my boxes and I can’t stop thinking about you!

  13. The very heart of your writing while apnaprieg reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
