It was the best of times, it was the best of times…

So I haven’t posted in a few days, but this time I have good reasons that don’t include putting off my taxes or getting mass quantities of blood withdrawn from my veins. That’s right, folks – hold onto your hats … there’s this girl that I met…

Her name is Sara and she’s an eighth grade science teacher. Surprisingly, we met online just before I took another break because most people are too rude to be on those dating sites, but we kind of struck up some similar perspectives last weekend and started chatting, first via e-mail, then a few days later over the phone. Our first date was Thursday night – we went out for dinner and ended up talking for quite some time … things just really clicked between us and by the end of the evening, I knew that this was a girl who I needed to get to know a little better.

Talk about the understatement of the year!

For our second date, today we spent the afternoon at Epcot and I don’t think that we could’ve asked for a better day if we’d even wanted to – really one of those days that just makes you stop and think … one that you’ll be comparing all others to for a long time. This was the first time that she’d ever been to Epcot, so I knew that it’d be a blast simply because it’s always fun to see someone experience a Disney attraction for the first time, but I would’ve never expected it to be this good. It’s been said that the key to it all is having the right person to share times like this with and although I don’t want to jump to conclusions and jinx it just yet, I’ve got to say that we might be on to something here because today was hands down the best trip to Disney that I’ve ever had, and I’ve been there an awful lot!

There’s just something about this girl that just makes me feel good – I can’t describe it, but needless to say, I really like it. She has this wonderful, bubbly personality and a smile that I could just get lost in – she’s the kind of person who smiles with her whole body and brightens the whole room wherever she goes (I know it’s kind of cliche, but hey – it fits). One of the highlights of my day was the movie in the Energy Pavilion with Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ellen DeGeneres because it was quite clear that she was having the time of her life watching Ellen bounce from one quirky line to another. I could’ve tuned out the movie and just watched her watch the movie the whole time, and still had a ball – what a great way to spend 37 minutes. Of course, that’s not really an accurate measure because really, my whole day was like that … it was as close to perfect as anyone could dream.

Like I said, I don’t want to go too fast and mess things up, but I just feel absolutely amazing right now and Sara is 110% responsible for that. Not to set my expectations too high, although I guess I do because that’s what I’m in it for this time – I really hope this develops into something because I love the way she’s made me feel about myself and that’s exactly what I need in my life right now. Today was probably one of the best days of my life and I hope that we share many more in the days to come. Keep your fingers crossed for me…
