The lady of my choice lives in California. I have not cleared this with her, so I do not want to use her name or city of residence.
We used email and phone for about 6 weeks, then I flew to CA to meet her . This meeting went very well, we continued email and phone, but more frequently and she flew here (Phoenix) last weekend. That also went very well. We discussed her retirement, the nature of our relationship, future tentative plans, and many other facets of our interaction.
Bottom line is our agreement that this is now an exclusive relationship, and there are plans for probable co-habitation within the next 6 to 12 months.
