I met a wonderful lady by chance on a flight across Australia from Mildura to Melbourne earlier this year. She was returning to her home in Wellington after working for six weeks at the Mildura Base Hospital. I’d been visiting my daughter. The thing is we made a wonderful natural connection as we talked and there seemed to be a mystical or unexplained energy force that drew me to her, perhaps she also felt it! The flight ended too soon and we disembarked and went our separate ways. However, I can’t get this lovely lady out of my mind and now wonder if it was a lost opportunity or just Karma!
I would very much like to visit Wellington and take this lady out to dinner but have no contact details, not even her name! What do I know? She is very a beautiful mature lady with three adult children and a Labrador dog. She works as a nurse. So do I just forget this woman and put it down as a lost opportunity or, through yourself and the newspaper, do I try to find her and – in finding her – perhaps find love? What a great romantic story and of course it begs a happy ending. I can’t include all your details in this little column but I would encourage you to use other forms of social media to reach out to your beautiful lady.
Should you be lucky enough to find her, I trust life will have already taught you that powerful attraction – even when reciprocated – is no guarantee of love. While it’s an excellent and exciting start, you two would need to spend time getting to know each other and sharing more of your stories, goals and priorities to discover if there’s enough of a fit to be able to successfully bring your lives together into a relationship. If you’re not successful in making contact, I do hope this experience will encourage you – the next time you find yourself attracted to someone – to gather your courage, ask for her name and tell her you’ve enjoyed her company so much you’d like to keep in touch.
The worst that would happen is she’d say no. Can you bear that?
