While driving over to meet him, I suddenly became a little nervous. This was the first time that we had hung out one on one...What would I say and what were my issues again?
But as we started talking all of my nerves quickly fell away and what ended up happening was pretty amazing.
To have a man look me in my eyes and tell me that he understands my struggles - that he will be my friend - that he will treat me with the utmost respect - that he won't cross any boundaries with me and that he intends to treat me like God's daughter and the princess that I was mind blowing.
He looked across the table in the crowded Starbucks and asked me,
"So, how do you feel?"
I looked him in his eyes, smiled and said,
"I've always wanted a friend like you."
