The day was 12.21.12.
A day everyone thought the world was going to end. My facebook feed was filled with panicked talks about the Mayan calender and prophesies of the world as we know it coming to an end.
But it didn't.
Especially not for me. No, instead, the opposite occurred. That day was the day my life changed. Instead of ending...it was the day of new beginnings.
I got offered an amazing opportunity and decided to accept a new job position.
Not only was that great news in itself but it didn't stop there. It was also the day I met "Boho*". I went to see a show that night with no expectations of meeting someone. It's funny because usually I get all dolled up when I go out in hopes that I will meet the love of my life. But not that night. I didn't even change out of the clothes I had worn to work. I was dressed extremely
My difficulties with dating were mostly due to diferences in life stages. Most guys my age are not quite ready to accept the lifestyle of a single mom. But Boho is a single dad. So not only does he accept it but he gets it. I'm taking things slowly and not rushing into anything but it's nice to spend time with someone who is on the same page and understands what it's like to be a single parent. Someone who has shared a similar situation, similar thoughts, feelings and emotions. No pressure on what becomes of it...hey I did have a New Year's resolution to date more/worry less, right??! So I'm just going to have some fun.
*Boho due to his slightly elusive, free-spirited, beatnik, eccentric sort of persona so I've decided to deem him this name short for bohemian.
