Default Help! I think I'm falling!

I need some help, especially from the women here. Am I correct to assume it is a good sign when you get an e-mail message that says, in part, "I like you. No one makes me feel like you do. You make me happy. I hope I make you happy too."? The person who sent me this message is named Paula. I would attach a picture, but I can't get it small enough to post here. Am I correct in assuming that I should be considering looking for a honeymoon cruise soon?

Donna, yes, that might help. ;-)

Tweety, good point. Yes, I'll take this slow. No, I haven't bought the ring (yet).

Jennifer, I can assure you it wasn't spam. We met at my church where she is now part of the church orchestra (she plays the claronet).

Maybe you'll be on the Cruise of the Centurly celebrating something more than the New Year and Mike in a diaper. But as everyone's advised - slow, and cautious.

Keep us updated!

I agree with Tweety - take it slow. It is a good sign that she said that, but guys that move too fast scare me off...

She asks does she make you happy? If she does then hopefully it will work out, but like everyone else says, take it slow. Good luck and I hope that God will bless you with happiness.

Tom, I'd take that as a good sign. My husband and I fell in love via e-mail after only two face-to-face meetings, so I know it's possible! Good luck!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

As everyone else has said, take it very slow. Have a relationship about two years abd get to know her. In the long run it will pay off. If it's meant to be, it will be. Otherwise, you'll save yourself a lot of heart ache. /it;s nice to hear good news, though.

Tom, is this a girl you met Friday night or one you've known for a while? Sounds promising , but I wouldn't be opening a lay away account at Tiffany's if this email was the first expression of such sentiment received from Paula.
On the other hand, it does not say, "Dear John" or "Let's be friends" so sounds pretty good.

Tom...
I'd check to see how many people that was copied to. J/K

Good luck! Hope it works out the way you want it to.

what happen to the good old days, where a woman would tell a man something like that, in person, on the 2nd date ?

I take it I should go slow on this. ;-) This sounds like prudent advice. I do want to point out that my brother knew his wife for barely three months before they got engaged, and they've been happily married for over nine years now. I don't plan on going that fast, especially since we've known each other for more than three months. There could be something here, especially since she hasn't asked for my credit card number yet. <VBG>

Tom if you work, play, eat and sleep with nothing on your mind but her - then it's the real thing. And the credit card thing - that's usually after you're married lol. Romance - there is nothing better. Take care - ttfn Jennifer
