I’ve been a little busy lately, taking my time. I met a man a few weeks back and we’ve been enjoying one another’s company more and more.

He has this special quality of making me feel small, in a comforting and disarming way… And it’s not just because his 6’9″ dwarfs my normally oversized 6’2″ frame quite delightfully.

He listens intently to my stories. Even when I’m knowingly trying to scare him away or warn him off the dangers of me….

Instead of running, or acting even potentially disturbed, he challenges me right back, with kindness, patience and warmth… Slowly melting the sharp icy points that have built up around my heart.

I asked him to be my Valentine this weekend. He said yes.

He told me he loves me yesterday… And I told him I love him too.
