They always say that there's one person out there who is your perfect match. Someone who you were just meant to meet, more than likely when you least expect it or aren't trying. By sheer coincidence, i spontaneously met a young woman, much younger than me, down at the local supermarket around 18 months ago.

When i say younger she was still an adult, lets get that straight. I was nearly 36 years old at the time, without the benefit of having known her i couldn't possibly have known precisely how old she was, and i certainly wasn't going to ask her how old she was.

Not exactly a charming way to start proceedings. I guessed she was somewhere between the age of 18 to 22, and being a reasonably young at heart 35 year old, i figured i had nothing to lose. In hindsight, i have to admit i regret not asking her out the next time she served me at the supermarket checkout, i rather haphazardly looked her up on Facebook and sent her a message, as a way of introducing myself.

She might have rejected me anyway even if i had done it the traditional way and asked her out at the shop, especially given the age gap factor, but it all went pair shaped after our first conversation on Facebook. I dont blame her for giving me the cold shoulder in the end, i dont really blame myself for using Facebook to try and break the ice with her, it was always a bit of a Catch 22 for me, but with the benefit of hindsight, yeah i admit i fucked it up.

For me anyway, not saying she felt the same way, i felt a lot of chemistry for her, to the point of it being electrifying, almost like it was in the air when we were within eyeshot of one another, and for me, it was a unique and special feeling. I love you Jacinda Hullsmunn, had to tell you before i move on to the next stage of my life. It was a pleasure to meet you.
