So here it is almost Christmas and like many of you, I find myself going it alone in Matchland.
That's okay. I need a rest. I broke my leg a couple of weeks ago and briefly had the idea that I would still be able to get out occasionally on my crutches but a couple of weeks at home have convinced me that a complete retirement is in order for the time being.
I have been lucky to have the support of my friends and family and that will keep me going through all the quiet times in the next couple of months. (It is awfully quiet here sometimes.)
At any rate, I hope that you are doing well. I wish you nothing but success in your search for love. You will find it. I am sure of it.
And when my time comes again, I know that I will plunge right back in. I had such a great time in the last year that even though things didn't work out for me--I still feel like it was the greatest year of my life. I made many new friends along the way. Some of them have gotten lost but I will keep them in my heart forever.
