Supporting CLASP Homes Two years ago, I signed up with I wanted to meet someone nice. Nice would do – someone I could have dinner with. So, I looked at some profiles but I was too chicken to pull the trigger. Then, I got an e-mail from Tracy. Tracy is a beautiful, blonde haired, blue eyed woman and for some reason, I said I preferred brown hair and green eyes. I have no idea why – green eyes? Really? But Tracy just said – “What’s wrong with blonde hair and blue eyes?” I read that and laughed. I was hooked. We e-mailed, talked on the phone, and I knew I wasn’t just finding someone to go to dinner with. It was a blast! I was waiting on a dreary, rainy sidewalk, looking for Tracy’s car. Then I saw her for the first time. It was like being in a cartoon where your heart starts pulsating through your shirt – I was flabbergasted. I heard myself saying, “Wow!” Just like that, out loud, the first time we met. Wow! To my surprise and delight, she was charmed and gave me for the first time that smile that I now live for every day. By the time lunch was over, I was in love. Over the past two years, we have grown closer and closer and now share one brain, one heart, one soul. She is my love and my best friend. And now, we’re forming a family. Tracy has a wonderful daughter whom I have grown to love and like and pick up after school. Tracy and I are getting married in September. Pretty darn good for a guy who was hoping for a dinner companion and got a life companion instead. And that is the best unexpected Valentine’s Day present anybody could hope for.
