Is it? Can two people make the impossible possible? This question comes from a personal standpoint, things going on in my life. So let me give you the story.
Girl meets boy on a trip one evening, out of the blue. And she likes him, in fact, the more she gets to know him, the more she likes him. She watches his interactions with her, she looks at him when he’s talking, she finds him attractive. He’s intelligent and funny, smiles at things with a sense of humor and wonder, and not with a sense of unease. They are comfortable with each other, even upon that first meeting and it hits her … somewhat blindly and out of no where but it hits her. There is a connection here. This is a connection she wants to explore, honestly and openly. She broaches the subject sometime later after this chance meeting, as they’ve kept in contact. He feels and understands the connection as well.
For the girl? This is something worth exploring more. She is willing to do so, considering that any obstacles can be overcome.
For the boy? He’s concerned about the practicality of the situation. Because you see, he doesn’t live in my state. Nope, he’s far away. And his job? Well his job hours are inflexible, he never has weekends off, and there is little to no room for flexibility in that area. So his job, the geographical differences and practicalities do and will present challenges, yes. He says that he is not going to push the girl away just because there are obstacles, but he doesn’t want to give her less than she deserves either.
He makes valid points, this girl can not deny that. She also can’t deny that she appreciates his honesty, and she very much loves that he wants her to have what she deserves. She understands what she is facing, but she still ponders this thought …
Is it giving her less than she deserves to not explore the connection? It’s rare that you find that immediately in two people, very rare. And she thinks, that sometimes, with effort, you can make the impossible … possible.
She hopes anyway. You tell me, can it work? Can we overcome obstacles, to at least see if there is more? Is this a waste of effort on both of our parts?
And for those of you thinking I’m writing of Irishman? You’d be wrong.
