Thanks, Indie, as always.
I agree that "at ease" might be a better term for my state of mind, just now.
It's a new experience for me in my relationships with other people . . . perhaps especially in my relationships with women I find attractive.
Sheesh, talk about a late bloomer!
So, I met someone for coffee this morning, as I mentioned in my previous post. I'd thought we'd talk for an hour, maybe a little more . . . but we talked for just over two hours.
Really, we just told stories about ourselves and asked each other questions. She and I seem to have a good mix of common interests and divergent experiences, just enough so we don't annoy one another, but can still surprise one another.
I have no idea what happens next, or where things might go - if anywhere. She suggested a possibility for a next meeting when we parted, though, so I suspect I'll see her again.
Like Vix and me, she's a Northerner living in (and chafing a bit at) the South; she has a Northerner's directness, which is always refreshing.
Whatever happens, I'm glad I met her. It was two hours well spent.
