I have been back online for less than a week and already my inbox is flush with emails.
Ironically, I seem to be meeting a lot of military men.
Men who work in security.
First responders and police officers.
These men are pretty straight and narrow – no drugs (good) and no alcohol (how do they do it?).
It’s ironic isn’t it, that I seem to attract men who are quite the opposite of myself.
I’m a rather creative type.
Always working on a new costume, writing a blog post, or off living an adventure.
For goodness sake, I attend Burning Man, an experimental temporary community in the Nevada desert filled with alternative art, music and entertainment.
I can’t complain too much, though.
I find the discipline that these men exhibit very attractive.
For a flighty type like myself, I benefit from being paired with someone who is a rock and can help me tether myself to the ground while still enjoying my creative tendencies.
I can’t help but wonder though if my passions, creativity and lack of structure will ultimately prove incompatible with a disciplined lifestyle.
Or perhaps if we might fill a mutual void in each other’s lives and balance ourselves out.
Opposites attract, they say.
