It was lovely to catch up with @Pippa and bask in the warmth of her glow as her life continues to get better!
The glow is because I have had the extreme good fortune to stumble into meeting a really amazing, intelligent, person who has the most incredible attitude towards enjoying her life, I quickly fell in Love with her, then as time passed she has fallen in Love with me.
The craziest thing is that I was not actually looking for a relationship, and neither was Alex. Quite a few years ago I had given up on the hope of that happening.
I attended a social short walk organized by an introverts group, just so I could talk to people. Both of us were slower at walking than the rest of the group, so we walked together and chatted while the others left us behind.
So after being single for over 20 years, I suddenly find myself in a relationship. I guess the message to take out of this is that anyone might meet someone very special, at almost any time.
The only real thing that a person must be doing is to attend events / places where it is possible to meet people and talk to them.
