After things have kind of cooled off with Ryan, I started talking to a new guy, who we'll call Aaron.
Aaron and I talked online for a bit, then through texts, and when he didn't respond to one of my texts for hours, he called me.
We chatted for 20 minutes, and it was in this conversation that I told him of my widowness. And that I found a story about how he lost his brother less than a year ago.
So we have this instant connection. And I'm waiting to see if we have more of a connection than that, but so far it's sweet.
And we have a date in Chicago in a little bit, and I'm hoping it goes well. He is a little younger, but already seems more mature than both Scott and Ryan.
