Something amazing happened today. I have a profile on a website which caters
to introductions for friendship and romance, and yesterday I received an email
from a woman who saw my profile on there and apparently liked what I wrote.
My profile has been there for over a year, and this is the first woman who's
written to me because of it. She pointed out some of the areas where we
differed, but still felt that we might have something in common. I looked at her
own profile, and pointed out in a reply some more areas where I believed we
differed, but finished it by saying that I'd be happy to meet her anyway, as I enjoy
meeting new people.
I got a reply to that today. It turns out that her and I have already met last year!
When I was working at ORAC Internet, I once had to go and do a software
installation at her place of work, and it seems that she wanted to get to know me
then, but because of the circumstances found it difficult.
Now, the incredibly amazing aspect to this, is that I felt the same way! I remember her as being someone who I'd like to get to know more. She had
positive quotes laying around her office, she was assertive and confident, and
she was attractive. I even provided opportunities for her to get to know me, if she
chose to, by sending her a few emails after that day, being friendly and giving
instructions on how to use the newly-installed software. She responded in a
friendly and likable manner, but I felt it was unfortunate that nothing ever
eventuated and after those few emails I guess I forgot about her.
And now she's writing to me from my profile on a website...
Needless to say, it's been quite an exciting day for me because of this. Her and
I have exchanged a couple of emails today, and it seems she wants to get to
know me some more, which is great as far as I'm concerned! She's going away
this weekend and will be returning late next week... I gave her my phone
number just in case she would like to call me, and I'm hoping to hear from her
today or tonight.
This is quite amazing, and I feel really surprised and excited that this has happened.
Oh, and I found my book of quotes again - it had been packed away during my move, which is why the past few entries have been 'quoteless'.
The secret of making something work in your lives is,
first of all, the deep desire to make it work:
then the faith and belief that it can work:
then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness
and see it working out step by step,
without one thought of doubt or disbelief.
