Thought you would enjoy this NYT story about one of my online friends whom I met on a dating site. He and I had lots in common but lived 1,,200 miles apart so never connected in person. I ended up with post sm partner who lived in my town. Eight years later we are still happily together. My online friend ended up marrying a woman whom he met on OK Cupid and lived more than 3,000 miles from him. The NYT just wrote about their marriage. I’m happy for them and for me.
I am an incurable romantic and would far rather find Mr Wonderful in Timbuktu than Mr Okay conveniently around the corner. I am resilient, resourceful and patient, and I guess I need him to be these things too. Mr Wonderful is worth the trouble, and he needs to feel the same about me. I imagine it’s a great test of compatibility.
“cherish and delight in your spirit, and ask only that you be your authentic self; to witness, with total acceptance, the radiant, imperfect beauty of that self, of who you have been, and who you are today, and who you will become; and to be radically honest with you, with myself, and with others and to hear the truth you tell me.”
