He decided to make the two-hour drive from Pennsylvania to Maryland. I was happy he was willing to come to me first. We met on a cold afternoon.
I knew right away that he was my soulmate.
Actually, I had known after reading his first email and even his profile alone. I could just feel the soulmate familiarity of him.
He had a nice beard and an adorable smile. He was real and chill, with his sweatshirt and joking ways, but refined and holy too, discussing religious topics soon into the date. It was him, no question about it.
All my life, I had dreamed of this man, of this moment when we would finally join.
The problem was, my heart was closed. After some past heartbreaks, I had built a brick wall over my heart and then a metal barricade in front of that, as I was determined not to get hurt again.
