Message in a Bottle

Despite the fact that there are over four million people in the state of Colorado, there are times you still feel shipwrecked and alone, even in the high desert. Times even the most resourceful survivor would feel the need to put a message in a bottle, or on a dating website in hopes that a suave gentleman with all the right qualities will find it and rescue you.

I feel like I’m playing a game of hide-and-seek again. When I was a kid, I used to make just enough noise so someone would find me. I guess I’m still making noise, just through different forms, like writing an interesting profile and pasting in some sexy pics to attract that attention, make noise, and hope someone finds me.

So what happens when someone across the ocean finds my bottle? How can someone so out of reach rescue you? Men, what do you do with those messages from the damsel in distress aching for you to save her when you can’t physically get to her but desire to be with her?

Can distance relationships prosper and survive?

Been there done that ,It only works for awhile.It all ends when you feel the need to be holding someone.I guess 6 months was to long to go without.

Long distance relationships are so difficult to maintain....sometimes, they are safe infatuations. if it is really meant to be, you would find a way to meet and see if the connection is real....I do know of one on this site who did across several continents and it appears to be working...so, you never know.

Good question. Maybe we should conduct a "scientific study"--a survey to see if they work and how long they were sustained before things fizzled. How is yours going?

1cooldude - I can totally relate. Everyone needs arms wrapped around them at some point.

Magnet - you're right, it is a safe infatuation and it can be very exciting. It's almost like living in a story book, waiting to see what the next chapter will bring.

Jack - the survey results would be interesting. I bet the odds are against us but what fun it is to flirt with something so challenging. Wouldn't it be fun to meet up with a distant lover now and then?

Hmmm ... what's this in the surf?

Yes, after 30 years or so on the net, I can safely say (safely? Did I really say safely?) that friendships can last over distances and time. I find the world keeps getting smaller and the people who make me smile increase in numbers.

Just this evening, I found a woman again with whom I shared many a laugh and more than a few smirks nearly 20 years ago.

Here's to friends: past, present and future ... especially those who help you enjoy the liquid contents of a bottle before stuffing another note in it and setting it free on the surf.

when it comes to a relationship, distance has nothing to do with it, it simple is meant to be or it is not
