I really admire the inspiration, the brave sharing, and the heart that is behind the posts I read. And I had to catch that last thought of , "You do that way better..." When I am moved by something I

I thought this Chicago trip might be that middle? But, unless he's going to magically arrive without knowing any of my details, I guess we won't be seeing each other just yet.
I'm going to call this man, Tut. We met innocently enough. I was with my family getting ready to tape the Family Feud in Atlanta and he was the person who in charge of getting us to and from our destination.
He's a beautiful black man with light green eyes. I spent a lot of time chatting with him, maybe too much- more nervous about the game show than talking to this delicious man.
Long story short, when we finished taping, Tut asked me out (which is a long story in itself- remember, this is NaBloPoMo and I need to get to the point and post). I had just lied to Steve Harvey earlier, talking about, I don't get dates (it was supposed to be funny) and here was a handsome gentleman asking me out for that night.
My cousins and sisters were excited for me and I was on a mission to look cute and sexy. My sister-cousin reminded me that he had seen me at my worst and best already (arriving from the airport I wasn't umm all put together ha) and so I couldn't go wrong.
He picked me up and we went to a local bar nearby. Over a few drinks, we bared our souls. We confessed how we could fall in love with each other right then and there.
Yup- it was intense!
Tut would visit one time, here in NY. He met lots of my family and even sat down with my dad to state his intentions! Yes, he did! That's just the kind of man he is.
It's been all these months and he's consistent with a text or a call and he's determined that THIS might work. I told him over the phone, I don't know what THIS is (what are we? Or does it matter?) but I'm open to seeing what we do and what we make of it.
I don't tell him about my dating life, but in a conversation we had recently, he said, "I know how men can be." He insisted, "I'm holding on to you and I'm not letting go. I'm not tight fisted either." I thought that was sweet.
I just want to see him. Hold him. Have him hold me- again.
They don't make men like that these days, but I know there's a man like that out there for me!
