We wrote back and fourth for about 10 days, then spoke on the phone a couple of times before meeting for coffee. We met at a coffee shop the first time, and spoke for more than an hour. We then planned a second date for breakfast, and a third for a movie. The fourth date was a hike, and we've pretty much been together ever since.
We both keep telling ourselves and each other we are keeping it light and taking it slow, but we both feel an incredibly strong bond and sense of commonality. Neither of us really wants to get married again, at least at this point.
