Perfectly Perfect

It’s been one unexpectedly amazing month since meeting DC face to face for the first time and I am still gloating!

Initially we had happened upon each other through comments on a mutual Facebook friend’s photo. Neither of us suspected any attraction from the other and we carried on a very nonchalant friendship immediately following the virtual encounter.

I think back on the days leading up to the official meeting and how hopeful I was to get the chance to meet this man, slightly concerned with my limited schedule and availability, but in the back of my mind I had decided it was priority. The funny things is that we hadn’t really talked in-depth about meeting or even made any tentative plans. I didn’t even know he was interested in me!

I honestly just found him intriguing and thought it would be good to make another friend back home.

DC captivated me, even in the moments we interacted leading up to that first hello. This post will be a bit of a confession to him even though he knows I had some interest, or at least more than I lead on to … or that he could hone in on 😉

This union continues to surprise me. He is perfect for me. Perfectly Perfect in so many ways. Ways in which I didn’t even realize I desired. Had I been asked what the perfect man for me consisted of, I doubt I could have described him, but now I am sure of what I want and DC hits all the marks!

Now if only I can survive just one more week till we are together again.

We have successfully made our Facebook friends nauseous with all the doting and lovey dovey message exchanges. I can’t even imagine how many people have muted me over these few weeks. 😀

Every day is one more day closer to our happily ever after …

Dear Future “Guy”

I’ve really grown fond of Rihanna’s song “Only Girl in the world” so much so that I am adopting it as my anthem for the next guy I decide to get serious with.

I’ve felt much of this from past relationships, but I haven’t quite been in a place where I’ve been ready to really open myself up and love again on this level for some time now.

I think I am nearly ready…. at least much more so than I have been in the past.

So here it is… To the future Guy who I will eventually meet and allow myself to really open up for:
“[I] Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Only girl in the world…

Like I’m the only one that’s in command
Cuz I’m the only one who understands how to make you feel like a man, yeah
Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Only one…”

I can’t wait to meet you.
XOXO Your Diva

I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of a soul-mate lately. I’ve always believed that somewhere out there was someone who shared a connection with me greater then this life. My one true love.

Yes, I believe in past lives and I feel that our souls carry a connection from life to life and if you are lucky, and the connection is strong, then fate will bring you together in future lives.

The Urban Dictionary defines a soul-mate as “The one person who can always make you smile, who shares your hopes and dreams, who makes you whole.” Based on this I have been fortunate enough to have found many soul-mates, but not “The One”. No, he is still out there somewhere… hopefully in search of me too.

Further definition states “Folklore claims that when a soul descends to earth it splits in two, each half of the soul inhabiting a separate body. These two people are forever after ‘soulmates,’ and will never be complete until they find one another.” How utterly fairy tale…I can just feel the dreamy sparkles in my eyes.

So, I asked my friends on Twitter and Facebook if they believed in soul-mates and after the responses I received I am starting to think now that soul-mates can be greater then just your one true love.

According to Merriam-Webster.com a Soul-mate is defined as “a person who is perfectly suited to another in temperament”, which very well could mean best friends and such. Especially my BFFs…they’d never be able to stand me with out a similar temperament. 😀

Well, Perhaps they are the people who are most meaningful in your life. Those who take you at your best or your worst and love you unconditionally? The ones who make you laugh so hard you cry? Those who are always there for you no matter what?

All I know is I really like the idea of a soul-mate. I imagine one day mine will find me out of the blue, very random and completely unexpected… then we will ride off into the sunset.

Ok, enough of the day dreaming. Must get back to work, but I am interested to hear if anyone out there has found their soul-mate and the story that goes along with it.

Please do share!

The List

We all make them, right? To-Do lists, Grocery Lists, I even make a list of things to pack before a vacation… and old Girl Scout trait I picked up back in the day so that I remembered not only what to pack, but what I had packed so I didn’t leave anything behind when returning home.

In the world of dating we all have a list of what we want and even what we don’t want in a mate. This has become the subject matter of multiple dating and relationship authors, one of which I am currently reading – “Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough” by Lori Gottlieb.

Don’t let this title fool you. In no way is she suggesting you settle, but rather reassess your List of requirements so as not to miss out on something great.

I am anxiously awaiting another must read by Andrea Syrtash “He’s Just Not Your Type (and that’s a good thing): How to Find Love Where You Least Expect It” which will be on sale April 27th!!

Mine is on pre-order at Amazon and will hopefully be waiting for me when I return from vacation!! I had the great pleasure of meeting Andrea (in the ladies room of all places) at the NY Blogout a few weeks back. She told me a bit about the POV for her book and I am really excited for this read, especially after “Marry Him” because I need all the help I can get right now! LOL

My list is too grand for me to even write it all down, so you can imagine how many poor guys I’ve rejected… but I am getting better and taking more chances then I would have in the past. 🙂

I encourage you to check both of these books out and go find Andrea on twitter!
