So things have come full circle for me; I find myself sitting here and thinking about some of the things I’ve gone through and finally trying to understand what has been holding me back with my own personal dating goals. Not by any stretch of the meaning am I used to focusing so much on my own issues or emotions. After so many years of ignoring those issues and just focusing on helping my clients, it’s sort of a scary and uncharted territory for me. Yet, as I’m sitting here I’m recognizing that for the moment I am HAPPY. Do we all deserve to be happy? Maybe my answer for myself is finally yes.
So let’s be honest. I’m not used to a guy like Kevin -- he’s supportive, complimentary, and overall POSITIVE. What the hell do I do with that?! It’s a little bit strange for me to be around someone so nice, but at the same time there is no way I can let this set me back -- I’m sick of having anything good fall to pieces and not making good decisions in the name of self-sabotage. I would NEVER let a client screw this up for themselves. So why don’t I recognize that I deserve that very same consideration too? I better not screw this up now only because I’m used to young, condescending a-holes.
The majority of my day of course has me reverting back to work (sorry, I can’t help it, baby steps!) and the fact that I still get my ultimate joy from seeing my client Tim Sykes and Lauren together. They are truly ADORABLE; I just knew they were going to hit it off and were a match. Tim has really started to grow on me since that first day I met him, and nothing would make me happier then to see him happy! I will make sure that happens for all my clients, but yet with Tim I feel I have really taken him under my wing. He’s finally following ALL of my rules! I am a proud mama hen, and he and Lauren truly seem happy. I love it.
Kevin looks like a keeper to me. Hope all goes well for you. It was nice to see you become more vulnerable and open. :-)
Good for you Amy! You're adorable and you deserve someone who treats you great. I hope the chemistry is there with you and Kevin and if nothing else hopefully this is an experience that shows you you're worth it! :) Good luck to you!
You seemed like you were having so much fun with Kevin, you were almost glowing. And on the apple-picking date, you were so much more relaxed and open-minded than on, ahem, previous dates with cuties who just weren't right for you. Best of everything; you deserve it.
Hi Amy, I identified with you soooo much throughout these 2 dates. I would have also felt awkward, but that's because of insecurity issues. I am soo glad you let things happen and hopefully if it's not meant to be with him, you'll find another guy that treats you just as good. I'm happy for you.
Amy, you looked beautiful on your date! It is nice to see you with someone who treats you well. Are you and Kevin still together?
It was nice to see you finally relax and have fun. Good luck with Kevin, he seems very genuine.
This was an awesome season and watching you was great. I 'm glad you had so many self revelations and I wish you nothing but success and happiness in the future. Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!
