I see your point.

I spent two weeks designing, planning, cutting the lumber, assembling, correcting my errors, painting, triming it out in aluminum, making an otherwise great 10 ft. x 10 ft. shed, AND ALL THIS TIME ALL YOU WANTED WAS A LIGHT HUNG?
Boy did I screw up.
My friend Pat met her husband Dan on here..She and I had signed up and become Forum posters around the same time. Pat and Dan became 'a couple' at about the one year mark of us being here.. They've been married 5 years now and I'm still waiting for my Dan.. Pat keeps saying "The man for you just isn't ready yet." That is cold comfort for someone who has been single for 21 years..
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.
P.S. In the meantime, many thanks to my friends (John you're great) who are standing in the gap until you appear.
