Beware of the Charmer

Recently I met a man from an online dating site who turned out to be quite a charmer.

There were no real outward signs of his soon-to-be disturbing behavior. Total opposite he appeared rather nice.

A little checking on social media sites and others’ approval via viewing him and his family picture posts left me feeling comfortable to date him.

Unknown and totally caught off-guard was three dates in the executive churchgoer’s personality became that of a ‘freakazoid’ following a nice dinner together.

Where and exactly when did this man’s smiles and interesting, intellectual conversation changeover to a total different personality is a complete puzzle to me.

The whole experience managed to sour my thoughts on those who claim to be devout Catholics or Christians.

I can’t emphasize enough the importance of a complete background check on any man entering your life who knows none of your family, friends nor acquaintances.

Ladies, don’t let appearances fool you with any new romantic interest. Don’t let your guard down. Why? It could have cost me my life.

The man whose vocabulary words this blogger had to utilize a dictionary to define wasn’t looking for a serious relationship online rather a cover-up for a hookup.

I am thankful to God I walked away unscathed. The outcome of a third date with this man could have become more gruesome.

This I admit has been a most valuable lesson with the issue of trust. A decent, respectable woman has no idea the hidden agenda of today’s world’s charmer nor the potential possible harm he could inflict upon her once alone.

Realization now for the woman whose heart you attempted to hurt via your actions is a newfound built wall ‘lack of trust’, a barrier to some really decent man.

You, the charmer, I truly believe will get back 10X thru Karma compensation for your actions.

Yesterday began a new month of my favorite season, autumn. I intend to keep it filled with beautiful people, positive thoughts and happy moments.

This woman who demands respect and love has no place amidst the world of the ignorant man a.k.a. ‘THE LOSER’.





True Friendships

Today's society lifetime friendships rarity
Flowers in bloom fake friends arrive depart soon
Family created void of birth certificates
Quality over quantity simple concept
Man of integrity crossed mind - no thoughtform past
Communication with outside world great task
Lured north for a simpler life
Friendships comprised of fellow transplants
Thirty years ago diagnosed with MS
Forced face life debilitating disease
Complained naught - circumstance freeze
Chose courage plus amazing positivity
Daily taking advantage of God's life beauty
Few knew his manner of outside world connection
Head controls usage kept in touch via messages
Unknown to me magnitude progression disease 
Opposite fake friends online no emotional treason 
Inbox send fav country artist's newest addition
Man with disability found time brighten my day
His random acts of kindness found me all seasons
Good friends more importance fact
Versus passionate romance if not intact.

Stepping Into Solitude

Out of nowhere and quite tired of late I wonder bout my blogging fate.

A hobby I undertook for pleasure in spite of topics galore suddenly seems more to me like a daily chore.

I’ve always enjoyed writing and taken several Journalism courses over the years only do wonder if I’m suffering from Writer’s Block or sheer disinterest.

Thoughts of a brief hiatus come to mind as I wish to accomplish a goal,  placing the word ‘author’ following my name,  during this last chapter of my lifetime.

My synopsis is complete and all characters in place so for now my daily blogging will likely turn into a weekly submission as I chase my dream.

Profile interior featureless narrow
Impossible catch thee
Previous times wish hide thee
Light gray filled-in outline imagery
Shadow walker decision snap for chat
Continuance exercise regimen rat a tat tat.
