What a difference a year can make. Part II
Following on from Part I .
I had applied for a few different jobs at the company where my sister worked. I had never once heard her complain about work, and I knew it was a good company to work for.
After three interviews, without getting the job I had gone for at this company, I finally got a chance, and passed my fourth interview with flying colours. I had a job, at last. My start date was June 2013 and I couldn't wait to start.
That was the first step to improving my life and starting over.
So I now had my own place, and a job.
Step three was to get my love life sorted. I had been chatting online to a guy late in 2012 and was all set for meeting him, but he suddenly disappeared. He stopped resonding to my messages and left me confused. I wasn't overly concerned, although a little confused. I guess it just wasn't the right time.
I didn't message this guy again after my first few initial attempts and deleted him as a friend from my Facebook page. I started to date other guys, but none of them were what I was looking for. I was looking for someone who wanted commitment and wasn't going to leave me confused as to where I stood with them.
May 2013, something inside told me to message this guy I had been speaking to in late 2012 again. So I did. I had nothing to lose. Just a simple message to him to say 'Hi'. I wasn't expecting a reply, but was surprised to find one a few days later. He apologised for leaving me confused, and explained with what I accepted to be a reasonable explanation. We got on well and seemed to have the same silly sense of humour. We were both looking for a relationship and so we arranged to meet. We met up in June 2013, and haven't looked back since.
I'm now living with this guy, happy and content, with an added bonus of a weekend family as he has two young children who come and stay every weekend.
Funny thing is, over the last year, I've moved FIVE times. I'll tell you more about that in the next installment.
