    I just went on my first date that I have been on in 28 years....

    WOW.... After 24 years being married to an abusive controlling jerk who never "took me out" after the marriage.... then 4 years divorced and frozen by fear....

    I am glad I could finally bring down that wall of fear and the feeling that no one would want garbage like me.... I still am in amazement that he really seems to like my company.

    So nice to be treated with respect and as if I were a desirable partner...

    He just called to say how much he enjoyed spending time with me...

    Is it odd, do you think, to feel so young when I am 49? Like a nervous teen....

    Odd or not - it is nice for a change, gives hope and a lift from the pain that has been my life, even if it doesn't become anything more...

    Always nice to hear when someone enjoys a date. I hope that if I ever go on a date ever again I will feel the same way. Though I am not too hopeful that I will ever get one. Anyway lets hope Tue second is as good as the first.

    What strength you have to go though all of that and still have hope in finding happiness with a partner. All our lonely hearts could learn from you well.
