Find out whether or not he's ever been married; if he has, find out why he's no longer married.
I have always known the answer to that (we have mutual friends). He never married. He dated some, but said he never found the right person to marry.
I had to jump in here and give a quick update. We had decided we would not see each other until the weekend in February. So this morning he calls (EARLY) and says, Can I fly down there to you for a couple of days? Umm, hell yes!!!
My daughter is gone for the weekend, so it's just us and the dog. He did some things around my house including hanging my HEAVY wall clock, installing some light fixtures. Then he took some measurements in my kitchen and we went to a cabinetmaker who is going to do custom cabinets for me. And argued back and forth (in a good natured way) about which cabinets would look best. LOL About halfway through that he burst out laughing and said "we sound like a married couple".
Now about to start a movie, fireplace going, FREEZING cold and snow outside, cozy here. Eating homemade chicken and noodles and crusty bread with a good chardonnay. THAT is the way I like to spend my nights.
I can't believe this is my life. I hope I don't wake up from this dream. 2015 and 2016 were such horrible hell on earth that this seems like a fantasy.
Have to go, I hope everyone is having a good start to the year!
