Getting Ready To Think About Love Signs?

I’m laughing this morning because I got a friend request from some guy whom I don’t know.  He’s extremely handsome, but of course I think he’s a fake so I won’t respond.  But it made me smile in that way…you know the one I mean?

Because it happened after the pest control guy hit on me.  Oh and as follow up, Pesty called me later on that afternoon to make an appointment and after I said hello, he said, Hi Beautiful…oh puleese.  Thank goodness I’m not one to swoon at every little thing.  I am sure I was rolling my eyes…but in a way, it made me feel that little thrill.  Because let’s face it, I’m not dating and when was the last time someone called me beautiful?  I can’t recall….

Do you know what I mean though?  I know that it means nothing for him to have been flirting with me.  In fact, it was absolutely unprofessional and in no way would I have believed him.  That being said though, there’s that little piece of me that holds hope that perhaps things are changing in my life since other similar situations have been occurring.  Like ex boyfriends from my youth reaching out recently saying they were just thinking of me.  Similar as in men flirting with me at the store and no, I’m not delusional. I know what flirting is and what it’s not.

I’m realistic.  I know who I am – single divorced Mom of 2 college kids, living in a rental, fighting with the ex for funds owed still to me and tired of the stress.  I have gained a little quarantine weight which has to come off soon, but I’m normal looking and nothing special.

However, the difference now is this:  I am comfortable with being me.  Sure, I’d like to drop some pounds, but I’m ok with who I am on the inside.  Finally…I’m at peace with me.  I like my life.  I like who I am.  So maybe that is translating out into the universe?  Who knows.  I guess time will tell.  But it does make me giggle and smile to myself.  And that’s alright with me.  I’ll take it and enjoy it for the moment.  Wouldn’t you?

    Absolutely! I know I saw that guy checking me out when I was walking the dog the other day…65 year old mother of 3 adults who recently lost 70 pounds and is feeling pretty good about it. – LOL I believe the Universe does listen and she sends us the signs we need.

  2. Hmm this made me think. Not in 29 years did he ever call me beautiful. “Cute.” “Hot”. “Sexy”. But Never “beautiful”. That’s really sad that I just thought of that but radical acceptance is where I’m at.

    Go girl! Enjoy it yes, but also remember you are a precious jewel at the top of a mountain, and any man (or woman) needs to do the hard work to be rewarded with spending time with you 💪🏼❤️💪🏼 G xx 😘

    I do occasionally get a friend request from out of the blue from former students. I’ve learned not to automatically delete without checking because sometimes they have changed so much or are now married with a different surname. The usual giveaway that it is phony is they have no friends, and they just created their profile.

    It’s great that you are accepting of who you are and are comfortable with yourself. Think of all of the time we waste when we’re younger, worrying about what others think of us. Self-esteem is everything.
