“I will probably begin with a very classy first line… something like: say, sweet thing, can I buy you a fish sandwich?” – Leon Phelps / The Ladies Man

You’re either gonna love this or you’re gonna hate this. People will always have an opinion, whether they voice it or not. You’ll either support me or you won’t. But I will tell you, before you comment, before you respond, I can guess which group you are in. And to be perfectly honest I don’t care what anyone thinks.  

I have put off sharing this as I know it’s a touchy subject for some. I needed to protect my heart and myself and I was not in place I where felt comfortable defending my decisions (I actually don’t think I should have to) or even having a conversation about it with people who just don’t get it. 

I am dating.

It is so crazy out there. People are nuts, or maybe it’s me, who knows. I have changed so much in the last few years, things that mattered years ago don’t even register anymore. Happiness and peace are the most important things in my life.

I don’t have a lot to say about this right now, I just wanted to answer the burning question people have been asking. I love you all and look forward to sharing this journey with you. I will continue to share the memories I have with Duane. I will still post about the stupid stuff we did, the hard days, the sleepless nights and the special days.

BUT, I have one story to share… Actual coffee date… After 15 minutes or so of introductions….

Date: “I HATE dogs!”

Me: “What?” (Maybe I misheard).

Date: “I hate dogs. They are false companionship for needy people.”

Me: Just staring at him.

I grabbed my bag and walked out…. and before you ask, yes I showed him pictures of Buddy before he said that.

This is my life.  If you would like me to keep sharing let me know. Wish me luck. 

– xoxo Victoria

P.S. The quote at the top is from The Ladies Man… one of Duane’s all time favorite movies. Super inappropriate but so so funny! It’s hilarious, if I’m being honest.
