Have you ever lost something that you search high hand low for and just never find.  Then suddenly when you have given up it suddenly appears in front of you.

This is exactly what has happened to me .. I had really taken a step back (deliberately) from having a relationship or even from dating when my life was turned around in a very surprising way.

A couple of months ago I met someone at our Wednesday night club in Edinburgh.  A really nice girl, who was staying in Edinburgh until the middle of September.  To cut a long story short, I really never considered her a “possible partner” mainly because of the age difference but (even though one of my friends could see it a mile away) I never realised that she felt more than friendship for me.

Eventually (mainly due to me being stupid) she had to tell me straight out that she liked me.  It did fling me into a quandry, not only because of the age difference but because she was here such a short time and I really wasn’t in the mood for a fling.   I took a step back, had a wee think and decided that for a few weeks there would be no harm in having a nice time with a beautiful woman.

As it turns out our few weeks will now be at least  few months .. and the “nice time” has turned into something much more that has taken both of us by complete surprise.   She is a wonderfully funny, loving, intelligent, dizzy, beautiful woman and I look at her and wonder why she thinks I am so special.

I cannot believe that a few weeks ago I was unsure of whether to get involved or not .. there is a saying that you should be careful when gathering pebbles that you do not fling away a diamond.   I nearly made that mistake.  I am so glad that I didn’t.

What happens in the future is an unknown, I do feel she should go and live her life, see the world, do all the things she wants to do without the responsibility of having me to consider. I guess we will cross that bridge when we come to it .. but in the meantime, I will continue to enjoy my beautiful Senorita and laugh with the world.
