After months of suggesting it, my mom finally convinced me to try on-line dating. I got excited the way anyone gets excited about something new, and flirted with a bunch of guys that first night. Two days later I almost passed over this one guy's profile without commenting or flirting because he lived in another state. But I was curious because of the power of the words in his greeting. After a momentary mental debate I wrote a short comment. We started writing back and forth; our letters soon averaging about two pages each. I waited anxiously for each one. He came to meet me and my family. I flew to meet his family. Then I moved to be closer to him. It's working out beautifully.
