The very day I renewed my online profile at Match.com, I connected with “Rex.”
Rex is an Emergency Room RN.
In case you didn’t know, there are two nurses and two doctors in my immediate family so I am very familiar with the benefits and challenges of his career choice.
I got really excited when he talked about his pets.
I practically fell in love right then and there.
I just love me a man who loves animals.
We texted all night. He kept me up WAY PAST MY BEDTIME.
And I’m genuinely excited about meeting him.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about a man.
But then he went and sent me a text message with a little heart and smiley face, and I freaked the fuck out.
He is DEFINITELY available and is not holding back, that’s for sure.
So I’ve squelched the urge to bolt and am chilling out, enjoying our exchanges.
Plenty of time to freak out later, if it’s called for.
