on this special day

today is someone's birthday. and although every year i can't ever seem to forget the day, i haven't always wished him. but it seemed like in the last month we've been particularly in contact what with the christmas event and new year and whatnot. so i decided that the friendly thing to do would be to wish him...

jo: happy happy birthday!
someone: thank you :)
jo: gosh 27... time really flies... when i first knew you, you were 17!
someone: whoa. yah 10 years
someone: so since you've known me until now, is there any difference?

jo: it doesn't seem like 10 years...
jo: but yeah definitely there's a difference
someone: what's the difference?
someone: i want to see from the people around me. how much have i transformed.

jo: haha! well i think you've definitely gained a lot more confidence. you seem surer of yourself. who you are and who you want to be
someone: amen!
someone: so you do agree that i was shy right?
someone: haha

jo: haha! yeah... and in some ways i still think you're shy. maybe that's just you. and that's not even necessarily a bad thing. hey i consider myself shy too haha!
jo: it's been so long... i mean we've all grown up right?

someone: yeah
jo: so how do you think you've changed in the last 10 years?

and that was when he went all someone on me. he launched into an answer which awed me as usual. if there's one thing that someone is so different from anyone else i've ever met it's that he inspires me. and in a rare moment of true honesty i told him just that...

jo: honestly you've always been an inspiration for to me. talking to you always makes me want to be a better person
someone: that's great to know...
someone: anyway i must say that the questions you ask me always makes me reflect more. ha ha. like when you asked me how i've changed in the past 10 years. gave me a chance to really think about it and write it out. that is going to be on my blog!

can it be true? that we mutually inspire each other to reflect and think more? that just sounds too good to be true.

Damn, girl! Ten years with a someone - you're practically married! ;)

People change. They don't think they do, and the saying is they don't, but they do. I have friends that I don't see that often, because we're all scattered all over the world, but when we do get to see one another it's... strange. On one hand, we're the same, but on the other, everything's changed...

Happy-happy birthday to your someone ;)

Would you ever just ask him out? Or is that impossible?

always good to know that you're inpiring as well as inspired. Is the someone visually inspiring as well?? (wink wink)

If it seems to good to be true, it probably is..

Nooo get real! I think you should actually enjoy this moment Jo, cuz just had a Blunt-moment - a moment that you'll probably shares a moment that will last till the end.

Nothing remains in status quo, everything changes, whether we like it or not.

I'm kinda with Em on this one, have you tried to work things out with someone... ?

ryc: could the "borderline alcoholic" in your profile have anything to do with it? :D

Yeah, I know you've asked him out in a "friends hanging out" kind of a way, but why don't you ask him out on a romantic date, and say that it's a romantic date, and see what his reaction is.

I like your story.
But you'd better take a look here to find a really DIFFERENT dating site.
Looks amazing, agree? :-)
