Someone New

Not sure how I feel about this one at the moment. BJ contacted me after looking at my profile on the Zone. We chatted for an hour or so on Skype on Sunday evening, then for two or three hours last night. He’s lovely. We seem to have so much in common, or at least a lot to talk about and already I feel very comfortable talking to him.

He’s written a book called Myth Makers, details of which can be seen at and he’s said he’ll give me an audio copy in exchange for lunch. If I’m reading the signs correctly, he seems quite keen to meet me.

The big problem is that he’s just finished a relationship, albeit a long-distance one, but he’s been hurt as his partner obviously put far less into the relationship than he did. Also, he’s partially sighted, something I’ve been kind of keen to avoid, and he’s not currently working apart from his writing.

I feel all up in the air right now. I’m not sure whether I’m interested in him, just because he’s showing some interest in me, or whether I really do find him attractive.

Well, I’ll meet him once at least to buy him lunch, and I’m sure it’ll be a lot of fun because we certainly don’t seem to run out of conversation.


About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
