So where were you today? I hung a light fixture and in the process wondered where you were. It is not that I couldn't hang the fixture myself, I've hung many actually, but what I wanted was to see that look that comes across your face when you grab the ladder and tool box and say, "I got this!" I wanted to see the smug look of satisfaction when it was finished and the task accomplished. I wanted to hear your stomach rumble and you demand "feed me." (A chest pound with the fist would have completed the picture, you get my drift.)


So gentlemen, you want to know, "what does it take?" Touch my soul, get the annulment, honor Holy Mother Church, be real, strive for your best, cherish me, lead me spiritually and more than anything else understand me. (Maybe not necessarily in that order). Yes, some of those things take time, but if we cannot communicate/connect/share, it will never happen and no amount of emails or emotigrams will make a difference. Have I placed certain limits/restrictions? Well yes, and so have you. There has to be an attraction (as you prefer), there has to be an age range that I am comfortable with (as is with you). So if I don't take up contact with some one 12 years my senior or 15 years my junior, it doesn't mean you aren't worthy of a desirable, holy relationship, it just means I'm not her.


Have I met you yet? Maybe, maybe not. But please know that I pray for you, everyday, yes everyday, knowing that when we do figure it out, it's going to be amazing.


Your wife.


P.S. In the meantime, many thanks to my friends (John you're great) who are standing in the gap until you appear. biggrin

Joanna,
Thanks for expressing what many women have not recently said in the forums.
I am certain that many here are frustrated.

Aw, that is beautiful! Thanks for sharing that. I'm sure men are feeling frustrated as well, so I don't think it's just us women. Keep on praying. That's the only answer I can think of. Oh, and if you're interested, say you're interested. It's just like real life (lol), the person could choose not to be back at any time. We can't assume, Well, I'll wait to contact them. What if they're gone forever?

I am not frustrated. Really! It was a sincere question. I REALLY want to know. Maybe he isn't on this site yet. Maybe he's not ready for me, or I'm not ready for him. Maybe he needs to move closer, or further away. Maybe he's watching football or studying Theology. Maybe maybe maybe. I do know that if God isn't involved I am not interested.

Dear Mr. Joanna, if you are reading this, tell the future Mr. Meesch that I'm praying for him too!
