Hey all y'all!

After hearing from some guys here losing their jobs I thought I might share some positive news happening in my life.

I had a good/bad start into 2009 - depending on your point of view.
My relationship with Tanja was crumbling since August '08. The only things that probably held us together were the fact that we had a vacation booked (non-refundable) that we both wanted to enjoy. And we were also living together.
After she found a new place to stay in early December (she could move in in January) we broke up while being on said vacation in Amsterdam.
It wasn't a horrbile breakup. We both were unhappy with the situation and I guess it was just time to let go. TBH I am happy about the breakup. We didn't match and there was no love or passion in the relationship.
So we broke up on Dec 27th, and she moved out on January 1st.

After the breakup I wanted to get rid of my baggage.
Incidentally a girl I've met half a year ago also broke up from her boyfriend. He just never answered her phone calls or emails. Quite a sucky way to end a 1,5+ year relationship. So we both wanted some distraction.
We met, and the chemistry was pretty fine. The day after she left I realized that I have a crush on her, but was scared to admit to her because I wasn't sure how she was feeling. Considering she just went through a breakup too I wasn't too positive about reaction.
BUT!
After some chatting we met again and the chemistry is just right. We get along very well and our personalities match.
I find it funny that I am now dating her. We initially met for a physical thing and now we have a relationship.
That's actually very cool because I probably wouldn't have thought about dating her in the first place for a number of reasons:
1) She lives 130 miles away from me. I didn't want another long-distance relationship.
2) She's 27 and got her MA. I am 21 and wouldn't have thought that she's within my range. She usually dates guys 30+.

So by not thinking about it, I gave her a chance.
And it works very very well so far.
I could go on and on about how cute she is.

So: I have a new relationship. I'm happy!

Yay! Tom!!! This is fantastic news!!! And she is only 130 miles away? And an older woman! Woohoo! I wish mine was that close. I have been in a long distance relationship for almost 6 months now, they can work out, they can be hard at times, but for the most part I have no complaints other than he is not closer:) Anyway CONGRATS!

Interestingly enough, I'm in about the same boat. My ex and I broke up in the beginning of Dec, but unfortunately, I kinda blind-sided her with it. I wasn't happy, so the right steps had to be taken. The day I told her, she thought I was going to ask her to marry me. Ya, total blind-side...

I feel bad about it, but at the same time, she's already moved on and dating again. I met someone about a year ago, I find myself single, but she started dating someone else. Wish my situation was as nice as yours, but oh well, taking a hiatus is a good thing.

Great news Tom.

I can't believe no-one has yet demanded PICTURES!

Thank you to anyone who's been so kind and responded [Smile]

@geekygoddess:
Yeah, the distance can be quite a fight. I hope you two can arrange something and maybe move together eventually. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you [Smile]

@deathweaver:
Taking a break to relax and get your brain free is really important. Sometimes I wonder if our relationship would work if we hadn't met right away. Who knows!

OY!! Pics.. Well, those who are interested be so kind to PM me, and I'll share a link.
This offer is only valid to people who won't be panting over her [Wink]
