Schadenfreude

As I've posted in the past, I try not to talk too much about my relationships on my blog. The problems caused have been well documented, so we'll just leave it at that.

However, in breaking with my own rules, I'm announcing that I am indeed seeing someone now. Keeping with my rules however, I have not mentioned my blog to her. As such, I look to you, my faithful readers, for some assistance.

You all remember that it's been about three years since....well, that event happened. You know what I'm talking about so I'm not going to go into details about it. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then maybe you should just skip this entry. So I'm wondering what the proper timing is to discuss this topic with her? I mean, should I do it now? Wait until like, six months or something? One year? Never? I would appreciate your feedback.

Things I'm grateful for:
#110 What little cooking skills I've picked up over the years.
#111 Similarly, having developed up a small appreciation for wine at least. I used to only drink beer.
#112 The ability to worship as I see fit.

Geez, Joe. I don't think that's something you should ever mention. I haven't.

Personally I don't think that anything you've done in the past that involved your being deported from a country should be brought up in a relationship.

Besides it's not like the person died.

J - As we know, you've worked very hard to get past that and I don't see why it is important to any current relationship. Let the past slip away. While it was huge at the time, it's nothing now.

Congratulations on the new gal! I would not tell her for awhile, possibly until you think you have a developed a friendship that would survive a break up. You appear to be a very busy person, so get her comfortable with your scheduling before she gets a bird’s eye view to how/who/why/where you spend your time.

Best to let sleeping dogs lie and hopefully they sleep for a good long time...

What happened 3 years ago? I have to search the blog archives :) Congratulations on a new relationship. It's easy to find your blog online if you search with the right keywords...and it's a daily part of who you are and great writing and insight. I think the sooner the better and have her help set groundrules for content is the best approach. Good luck!
