Valentine’s Day 2012

blog Feb 14, 2012

For me, this week’s blog is very special because it’s a continuation of what I posted one year ago this week.

February 14, 2011 I have not given up on love yet. The fact is that I am more than positive that love is out there for everybody, including me, but finding it well, that’s a whole different story….

To be honest, I am very frustrated and scared right now but I’m also excited because I can’t wait. I have lived with that dichotomy every single day since I was 20. On one hand, I am scared. On the other hand, I can’t wait to go out and live life. Tonight I will spend Valentine’s Day with my roommate and best friend for 25 years watching the Lakers game and eating great food, wondering what I will be doing Valentine’s Day 2012.

There have been so many times in my life when finding a girl seemed like finding a needle in a haystack. In my post last Valentine’s Day, I expressed that frustration and also wondered what I would be doing in 2012.

I’m so happy to write that I am engaged. I am engaged to a wonderful woman named Leslie and I couldn’t be more excited.

The issue was that I spent a lot of time believing that a girl would never fall in love with me. The more time passed from my first relationship, the more I thought it was a one-time occurrence. I thought it was a fluke.

Leslie is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. We talk on the phone at least two or three times a day and she is the last person I talk to before I go to sleep. She has never once made my disability an issue in our relationship. We cannot wait to be together and next year I don’t know what I’ll be doing…but we will be together.
