I think I'm ready this time

Well it has happened again. A few months ago someone asked me on a date and I said no. I wasnt ready and didnt want to do it. Well tonight someone else aked me. He's a customer at the store and we have become very friendly. He comes in a couple of times a week and we have grown quite close. I had a feeling that he would eventually ask me out. He would make comments on how it was so easy to talk to me and I find it easy to talk to him. When he asked me he was so nervous. He said he has been trying to get the nerve up to ask me. I told him i was still not so sureĀ  how comfortable I was about dating but he said he hopes I give it a try. Just to get to know each other better. I took his # so I could call him instead of him calling me and me feeling pressured. I think I'm going to do it. The only thing is, is he is only 35 and I am 47. I know he's not a boy but geeze. I feel like I am taking a huge step forward with my life and my grief. Even if nothing comes out of this I know its only forward from here. Oh boy I feel like a school girl.

That is NOT that many years, a friend of mine had 5 children was divorced, and married a man 12 yrs. younger than she. They are so compatible and he is the best \"Dad\" to her children. Nothing is carved in stone, so why NOT give it a try???? It can always start out as friendship, and you will know in your heart if it is right, here for you always.. Take care and wishing you nothing but the best, AS ALWAYS... Hugs,

All we can do is follow and trust our feelings. If it feels the right thing to do then go for it and just see how things go. I hope things go exactly how you want them to. Good luck.
