A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how important little messages can be to making sure someone knows that you care. This week was a perfect example of that for me.
To give a little background here, Tiffany meet someone recently…
Now before anyone thinks that I am suddenly professing this is THE person or the love of my life, put on the breaks there! LOL Don’t get me wrong, it has been nice. Very nice. And he’s been really sweet so far. But things are pretty new here. We have a lot to learn about each other. You know…typical healthy things when looking at potential relationships. We are just enjoying getting to know one another right now and we are taking our time to see what develops. No one wants to rush anything here!
Besides…considering I have been single for all BUT about four months of my 13 years in SL, I gotta make sure he can handle my kind of crazy first… 😉
Now back to my point…the little things.
So, he and I have both had some pretty crappy work schedules lately. We have both had to work long days and weekend work has been thrown at us too. You know…that thing we call real life? Well…I have to give the man credit. He has made sure I knew he was thinking about me every day. Hopefully I have done the same for him.
What has really meant a lot to me since we met, despite our crazy work schedules, is the little IM’s he has sent me every day. They haven’t been anything fancy. They have been messages as simple as, “Hey you. Its been crazy here but I wanted to wish you a good day.” It may not seem like much, but those simple messages have meant a great deal to me. They have kept me smiling through a very chaotic week. They have let me know that I matter to him. I have done my best to make sure he knows I feel the same way.
I normally don’t share much, if anything about dating/romantic interests in a public forum. Since the advent of Facebook, I have rarely posted much about my dating life there. I just believe that a lot of our relationship stuff that people post on Facebook should remain between myself and whoever I choose to be with. Not criticizing anyone else…that is just how I am.
But I wanted to share this because this highlights just how easy it is to let someone know you are thinking about them. It took each of us maybe 30 seconds tops to send a message to the other…but we each made sure that we took those 30 seconds in our busy days to let the other person know they matter.
Is there any better feeling than that?
