Love At First Tweet

It feels good to be blogging again. A DVT blood clot that didn’t clear up set me back by about 2 and 1/2 weeks and I was hospitalized again. And ever since that happened I think I’ve been in love. My spirits have been so high and thanks to that someone I’m recovering quicker than I usually would- for I’m unusually happy.

Thats right- love at first tweet.

I have no clue how this will pan out, and my friends and parents are looking at me like I’m absolutely crazy. But they say when you stop looking for love, it comes when you least expect it. I stopped online dating and decided to give it a rest.  Apparently that’s what happened to both me and this guy as well. And all thanks to Twitter he found me. He’s a well known director and somehow found me as a fan of my music.

The day I was admitted I was sent the most gorgeous bouquet of pink and yellow roses, Iris, and Lilies. A “get well soon” balloon, a card, a teddy bear, and a box of delicious chocolates. So thoughtful of him. I immediately got excited about the idea of being him- but wasn’t sure if he was looking for something.

He’s a traveler due to his job. I’m in the suburbs of Philly, and his home is in Los Angeles. He’s barely there though, just in the next few months he will be in LA, NYC, New Orleans, Charleston, Atlanta, and somewhere in Alabama.  Being a musician, I’m perfectly okay with this schedule as long as there’s communication. Which so far, we’ve spoken on the phone for 4 hours every night so far. 

We speak of ridiculous things. Or as he often says- “silly”. He’s coming into town this weekend for our first date where he chose a 5 star restaurant (pressure…) and coming to my concert. He even offered to film it for me. Then he wants me to come visit him for a weekend in a city of my choice the second week of October. In November we are going to Maui for his birthday. He even brought up Valentine’s Day in NYC. CRAZY right? We haven’t even met. I got a belated birthday gift package at my house today. He said he thought I could use it for my music. A brand new huge MacBook Pro. Insane. 

I’m so not used to this. I’m not used to nice guys with the same ambitions as me and that have steady work and I’m used to paying for everything and not at all used to gifts. Especially expensive ones. It’s going to be a change. Ahhhhhhh.

All the fancy things aside- we are so much alike it’s unreal. We have the same ambitions (except his are in film mine are in music) and we are perfectly okay with ridiculous schedules and knowing we may only see each other once month and supportive of each other and constantly assuring one another that they’ll make it to the top and to never look down or stop working. It’s amazing. And he’s caring. And not a drug addict or alcoholic or scum bag. It’s a breath of fresh air considering my previous awful taste in men.

If it weren’t for the ridiculous technological advances and for the rise of social media, he would have never found me. I think we’ve both stalked enough about each other online to make sure he’s actually talking to me and vice versa. But I still am nervous I won’t actually get to meet him.

Let’s hope this is for real and not a future Catfish episode.

Until next time…God bless!
