Almost three years ago my husband suddenly died of a heart attack just a week after his 51st birthday.
At the age of 53 I started online dating and met a fabulous man . . . who lived 100 miles away. For our first date, we met halfway and had a picnic in a park by the river and sat on a dock and watched rain come up the river as we talked for hours. He is simply gorgeous, kind, intelligent, funny, sensitive.
We've been talking about marriage since early this summer. I know he's ordered a ring. So fast forward to tonight. He's asked me to meet him where we had our first date--a picnic on the river between where we both live. This incredible man is going to ask me to marry him! AAAAAAH! I'm so excited that I can hardly stand it. I feel like I'm 18 again. I just had to tell someone besides my daughter.
I know he wants to be married as soon as we can, as do I, so I'll need to rely on this community for help. It's been 33 years since I planned a wedding.
Thanks for sharing, ladies. I look forward to our interactions.
