The Swede

I still hear from The Swede, on occasion.

All is well with him.

Kids are great.

Family is well.

He started his own business.

And he is still engaged.

Yes, THE Swede is engaged to marry another woman.

A beautiful Swedish woman.

All is right in the world.

I’ve had to stop following him on Facebook because reading their posts about how much they love each other did funny things to my insides.

The Swede is pretty extraordinary so I can understand her enthusiasm.

I too feel like I’d be singing his praises from the mountain tops, were I in her situation.

But since I’m not I’ll have to be content with writing posts about our long distance friendship.

I was never looking for a long distance romance but I’m pretty good at maintaining our long distance friendship, so in that way this is PERFECT for me.

I’m looking for a LOCAL boyfriend.

The “benefits” are more steady and there’s no long distance barrier to overcome.
