Dear Readers: This is the end of the beginning of the journey between Blaine and Briar, at least for now. I will let you know if anything comes of this relationship that did not have the best of beginnings. What follows are the last two communications between Briar and me.
Briar: I am so glad that you were wise enough to see beyond Blaine’s initial “foot-in-mouth” comment. From the way he handled everything (especially with seeking advice), I could tell that Blaine was a thoughtful gentleman and probably would never intentionally offend. Also, he mentioned that his mother always taught him to treat women with respect. That code of behavior is important to him. I doubt seriously if he is a womanizer.
Your reconsideration of a meeting with Blaine may be an incredibly wise decision that may change your life. I wish you both a wonderful journey in getting to know each other. I am so glad that I could help. Do keep in touch. — Diana
