There is a guy I haven’t told you about. I’ve known him for 6 months. We work on the same floor of the same building, but for two different employers. His name is Harley. I haven’t thought about him a lot over the past 6 months (until recently) because in some ways, he falls into the category of guys I don’t date.
In other ways, he is the kind of guy I should be dating. He is nice, with a wild streak. In other words, he’s nice, but not to a fault. He has the bad boy edge, but he loves people and lives his life with integrity.
Also, he is totally into me. I’ve known that for months.
The third thing may be the most important thing. It’s something I too easily forget about. I haven’t even written about it when it comes to what I’m looking for in a guy. Maybe it’s because it’s not something I literally “look for” in “a guy,” but in some ways it’s more important than any trait (or combination of traits) a man has. It’s how I feel when I’m around him. When I see Harley, I feel good. When I see him, I smile.
The last week has been a serious challenge for me because of a tragedy in my neighborhood and problems my son has been having with bullies on the school bus. It’s been a week with many ups and downs. Unfortunately, I’ve spent a decent part of this week feeling depressed and overwhelmed. But, whenever I see Harley in the hallway, I reflexively brighten up.
