It was a few months after Charley died and I was visiting Norma in her dorm. She and her friends were messing around on Tinder.
I having been out of the dating game for over 13 years I had no idea what this was… on top of which my main phone was a Windows Phone.
When I got home, I pulled out my old android and started swiping…
Yeah…I know….that face, those guns…along with a really cool profile write up. I messaged him and we got together a week later for drinks and lunch at City Steam Brewery in Hartford.
We had a great time together. I didn’t know that day that we would get married a few years later. but what I did know was that it felt good…and I had not felt like that for years.
So, while the grieving never really ends…learning that your heart has the ability to expand – to allow new love and new experiences, should be the take away here. And Happiness — is just around the corner waiting if you allow it in.
