Hi there! Trying to figure out where to start with my big news… let’s try the beginning.
I signed up with christianmingle.com a couple weeks ago. Kinda just on a whim, subconsciously probably because my ‘little’ brother is getting married soon and, well, what about me? I really did not think anything would come of it. Figured it was about $30 worth of entertainment for a month. See, I wasn’t betting on anything because I listed that I don’t want kids and that I’m full-figured and that I’m in leadership in ministry. A few things that normally scare off guys. Maybe I was setting myself up to fail, but you all know me, honesty first.
On Jan 31st I received a message from someone. It wasn’t the first message I’d received, but this one was a little different. The other wanted to meet right away and was a smoker. Both deal breakers for me. This new guy simply said something like he saw my profile and it seemed interesting and asked me to check his out. So I did. Picture was cute enough, compatibility was right on, but there was something different about this guy… he’s blind. So, out of curiosity I emailed him back, emphasizing that I didn’t want to meet for a while, which he was OK with. We emailed back and forth for a little bit and seemed to hit it off. Then he wanted to talk on the phone. I got nervous, I don’t really know why but I did. See, to a blind person, a voice was what they associate a person with. Maybe I was afraid to let it get that real. I kinda put him off, but ended up giving him my phone number and said if nothing else, he could hear my voice on the voice mail. I actually ended up answering the phone… and we talked for about 2 hours and 15 minutes! The next night was about 2 hours and 20 minutes. We really hit it off! We talked about meeting on Valentines’ Day for dinner. But it didn’t take long until neither of us wanted to wait that long.
We met this past Saturday. We had lunch with a friend of his, went for a walk, and hung out for the rest of the day. All I can say is that we clicked. Things went really well and we’re still getting together on V-day. This will be my first Valentine ever 🙂 I’m fixing him dinner and we’ll probably just hang out and talk for the evening, maybe do a little snuggling 😉
So, my wanting to wait a couple of months or so to meet, ended up only lasting 6 days. Now, I can’t wait for next Saturday to see him again.
I can’t begin to tell you how happy he makes me. I know we’re still early on and everything, but so far it’s been amazing. This infatuation phase is so awesome, I just hope it grows into something deeper. Time will tell!
By the way, his name is Mike, he’s a few years older than me. Despite the blindness (since birth/genetic) he is very independent. He’s, of course, a fellow Christian.

I hope this comes to be all you want it to be. You deserve it Tammy.
