I'm going to call her Lyd, as in short for Lydia, but not really.
We talk several times a day, plus message, meet in chat, IM, email, etc. She's even begun two blogs which relate. I'd call us good communicators. I'd call her smitten, but she'd say it's more. Again, I warn against U-Hauls pulling up to my door.
We she visited just over a week ago, she met my son at the airport and had brought him gifts. He fell for her immediately. She's covered in tattoos and has the mouth of a sailor, but she has such a gentleness about her that he picked up on. The other day, he piped up during another IM session, saying, "You must reeeeeeaaaaallllllllly like Lyd!"
I had told her that I was considering a cruise to a new place in August. I want to go, in part, because I know my son soon probably won't want to go places with me. She suggested visiting her in CA and she's show us everything from the deserts to the cities. I am tempted, just not quite yet.
She is coming to the Mid-West and East Coast in June/July, visiting lots of friends and relations. She'll hook up with folks in this area again, too, two of whom know about us.
The other day she was talking about a butch butch and the concept of such terminology entered my head. I asked if she considers herself butch butch and she said some could consider her butch butch, but she thinks she's a soft butch. (I don't see the soft part, but then she doesn't wear a mohawk, either. It was funny to see people in the mall last week look at her; she literally wears herself on her sleeve.) She volunteered that I am a bicurious femme, but I modified that to be bicurious moderately femme, as I don't really do pink, as you now know. I asked her if she's always attracted to femmes, she thought for a moment, then replied that she probably is.
I'd be the first to say that she's not my type. First, Lyd's a she. Second, she had graphic tattoos. Third, she has a mouth and a temper. Fourth, she doesn't yet have a career. Fifth, she still lives with her parents. (Fourth and fifth relate to her being a caretaker for them.) Sixth, I'm not really attracted to her body. (However, I do want to make her feel good.)
Mostly, I am attracted to her being. I accept her completely about the other things.
