Contacting a girl I once hit it off with but did nothing about it.

I met this girl named Karli Royko at Lifetime Fitness over 2 years ago. She worked there and I was actually working on a promotional video. We talked for over 2 hours that day. I left that day with her number. We texted and talked on the phone for a couple of days then I got the guts to ask her out on a date. I took her up north of Colorado Springs on one of my favorite trails in my Jeep, we had lunch, I showed her how to shoot a gun as we shot targets. Plus she fell in love with my dogs. We clicked so well and definitely cared for each other especially with just meeting.

She then dropped a bombshell on me. She was moving back to Houston, Texas a week later and really wanted to be with me though. We talked, Skyped and texted on and off since. When we talked it would be like we never missed a beat. She came to Minneapolis for 4 days this last summer and really wanted to see me. I was in a very rough relationship and working construction at the time. I was taking down a two-story deck by myself and it actually collapsed on me, knocking me out, I came to in an ambulance and was out of commission for the whole time she was in Minneapolis.

I just recently broke up with my girlfriend and she moved out of the house because we were living together. Thinking of this assignment I decided to text and ask her if she’d be my Valentine. She responded with how are you going to do that. I said I would fly down there. Her response was, “It is about time, Reno. Yes come see me.” So I bought a ticket spontaneously down there and we have been talking since. I’m excited to see where this goes.

  1. What made you decide to do something so spontaneous, but involving someone else?
