An update on the Salina guy - we talked for over 2 hours last night, and it was a wonderful conversation. I got the scoop on the charges, and I'm ok with the answer. I did an extensive Internet search on him, and everything else he said is absolutely true. Why am I explaining this, it's really nobody's business but my own.
I recently became interested in Astrology. I guess you could say that, basically I read my horoscope (a/k/a horrorscope) almost daily. I also like to see if the guy to whom I am talking and I are compatible. I am a cancer. Salina is a libra, which my friend Angela (not to be confused with Angie) said means he is boring. She also said I can't date a Libra.
Luckily, this is offset by my earlier study of birth order. I am the youngest of 9, he is the 2nd oldest of 6. The basic rule is youngest shouldn't date other youngest (because they're both supposedly used to getting their own way, which is in no way true of me). Youngest also shouldn't date only children for the same reason (my ex-husband was an only child, and trust me, it was all about HIM!).
How much credence should be given to these theories? Truth is, I am a stereotypical Cancer - The Protector, emotional. Very loving and caring. Excellent partners for life. Cautious. Touchy-feely kind of person. Needs love from others. Easily hurt, but sympathetic. Would I get along with somebody who is (according to his sign): Nice to everyone they meet (I LOVE that!). Can't make up his mind. Have own unique appeal. Creative, energetic, and very social. Hates to be alone. Peaceful, generous. Very loving and beautiful. Flirtatious. Give in too easily. Procrastinators. Very gullible. That all sounds good to me! I can put up with a little procrasination if I get somebody who is nice, loving, etc. I did read somewhere that Libras are likely to cheat. Does this mean if we married that my second would end like my first? I can't let that happen!
So I'm going to ignore astrology on this one and go with my gut. My gut says that this guy is sweet and could be "the one." Unfortunately, my gut is wrong waaaay more often than it is right, so I guess I'll carefully optimistic. I don't want to put myself in the situation where I might get hurt, but I guess that's part of finding Mr. Right. Will Salina sweep me off my feet? Is he my dream man? Probably not, but as always, I'll give it everything I've got.
