How Love Found Ralph On WordPress Com

In a few days I will be coming up to 5 years blogging on WordPress Com.  During that time I have met on the internet so many wonderful bloggers,  too many to name and I love you all.

A few of you expanded from WP into us sending each other emails, having fun, sending each other presents and one even visited my home !  Wonderful !  The remainder of you I know very little or nothing about you at all.   I have no idea what your circumstances, illnesses, lives, worries etc. are.  All I read are your words, poems, single pics, reblogs etc. on your blogs.  This is the story of one such anonymous blogger who has taken my heart, filled it with her love and I am totally in love with her.

In this post I will call her LOVE.  Why not ?  I am not including pictures and am keeping her anonymity until we have photos taken together to put out to the world of WP for you all to see in the future.

I know that many of you will be happy for us. Others will be devastated, almost suicidal that their Ralphie has a real girlfriend now.  So sorry, but you had your chance, 5 years of chances and you blew it !  Please don’t cry ! I still love you !

Here we go then.  

The story of LOVE and Ralph !

So, here I am in my lovely apartment in a valley surrounded by mountains in southern Spain.  Day by day I am getting older.  All I really have are my health issues, my aging cats and blogging.  Nothing to look forward to except exist and have fun with my cats and blog. 

But, out there in another European country, unknown to me, was a woman who one day stumbled across my blog and immediately, totally fell in love with me.  She was smitten.  Nothing else mattered but remotely loving Ralph.  LOVE knew in her heart that Ralph may never love her as she had daily migraines and other things which may immediately put me off her. 

Even so, she wrote lovely comments on my posts, as many of you do and she was thrilled to bits when she read my replies.  I hadn’t a clue what she looked like, her age …. anything,  except the love for her pet on her blog.  She sent me a link to visit her internet album in her first email to me.  I waded through photos of her old European town,  hundreds of her pet photos, then  WHAM !!  almost at the end of the album were two selfies of a gorgeous young woman !  She was beautiful !  I just had to know more about her.

As the weeks went by we emailed, messaged, had hours of coversations on an internet phone.  Initially, I was worried as I had been scammed a couple of years ago by the Nigerian Bongo Bongo Banana, posing as a Texas 42 year old woman with money problem after money problem and I was the sucker who fell for it.  He is probably still pushing a full wheelbarrow with a big sign on the side shouting out, “RALPH’S MONEY : HAHA !”.

LOVE was completely different.  She wanted absolutely nothing from me.  All she wanted was to tell me of her overwhelming unconditional love for me no matter what I do or say.  She loves me beyond words.  

Total pure love !

Due to the stupidity of Social Services LOVE can claim nothing because she is living with her pensioner Dad.  If she went to live with anyone else she would receive the full spectrum of benefits.  Crazy, or what ?

LOVE ticks over with a few euros from her Dad, most of which goes on her pet.  She has asked me for nothing.  She loves her old clothes, repairs them herself and is so sad of the loss of her grandparents and most of all her Mama who died of cancer.  She was existing day by day just like me.

It was uncanny how similar we were.  We blog, love our pets, smoke, go to bed late, hate curry and so much more.  We were finding ourselves fitting snuggly together like two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.  It was amazing !  Our thoughts, words, actions and reactions were exactly the same.  We talked for hours on the internet phone and it seemed like five minutes.  We were both in a dream. 

LOVE wants nothing from me.  She is a giver,  she pours out her love for me unconditionally and all she wants is to see me happy.  Nothing else matters except for her pet.  How could I not fall in love with her ?

What could I do to make HER happy ?  I thought long and hard, then sent a few euros to her bank for her to buy some new clothes to make her feel better in herself.  Do you know what she did when the money arrived ?  I am almost in tears thinking about it.  She asked me if she could use €5 of the money to buy some food for her pet.  God, I love her so much !

Time went by and I asked if she would like to visit me.  I’ll show her Gibraltar and Ronda and hopefully she would have a fun vacation.  In an instant she said yes.  We talked about her sleeping in the second bedroom.  In an instant she said no because she wants to cuddle up to me, be with me, kiss me and make me happy.  Wow !

The flight is booked and confirmed.  LOVE will be arriving here in a fortnight’s time, staying for 24 days.  Yay !

Due to our unconditional love for each other, amazing things are happening as I write this.  My vibrating hands are a lot better ie. instead of my usual morning 8 messy attempts to roll just one wrinkled trumpet cigarette, yesterday every one was almost perfect.  Yay !  LOVE has only had one migraine attack in the last week.  Yay !  She has had daily migraines since she was 6 years old.  That particular migraine was caused by moving heavy things.  

Maybe we were both due good karma and healing.  Maybe we were brought together by Forces Unseen who I call my Dear Ones.  Who knows ?  But what I do know is that if it was not for WordPress we would never have met and fallen so deeply in love.

Thank you WordPress Com

So what do you make of all this ?

      Man of secrets ? Not really ! LOVE and I became blogging friends at the same level as you and I and many other blogging friends. A lot has happened between my last post a fortnight ago and this post. LOVE and I knew, just knew that we were right for each other and took the giant leap into becoming an item. We are both still amazed at how quickly things are developing and the icing on the cake is when we finally meet hug to hug in a fortnight. Can’t wait, nor can she !
      Big hug for your lovely comment my friend.

      Do you know what ? I reckon the Angels had a big hand in bringing LOVE and myself together. Of all the millions of WP bloggers out there how is it that the two of us, so compatible, are able to meet and gel like we are. I believe that the whole thing has been set up. Fantastic, eh ? I just love the Guys In The Sky !

  1. I am, of course, devastated. One less hottie on the internet. And so sweet of her to ask if she could spend your money on her pussies. Golly Ralph I just don’t know what to say. Make sure to bring along your WordPress coupons in case you a Get My Identity Back Coupon for their match-making services. Seriously – brilliant satire I’d say and I’m sticking to that answer. And you know I luv you baby.

  6. Congratulations on your Blog Anniversary. 🙂

    A good relationship can do terrific things (like reduce migraines). My husband and I have been apart for two and a half months because of work commitments (still have to wait another month) and we have both been complaining of various ailments such as not sleeping. We just miss each other and want to be together. We feel better and are better when we’re not 3000 km apart. So, enjoy your great
    relationship – you deserve it. 🙂 I hope we get to meet her at some point. 🙂

      Thank you so much. 5 years is a long time blogging. I just love the friends I’ve made including you.
      I really do sympathise with you and do know how you both are feeling as I worked as a single status consultant in Saudi Arabia for a number of years in the 1980’s which created difficulties in my marriage and ruined it as I was away for months. But, hey, I have a new life ahead with LOVE and neither of us will be apart. Yay ! Hope the month will fly by !
      Yes, we will post photos of us together while LOVE is here with me in Spain.

  21. My Dearest Ralph,
    As your wifi, I must admit this comes as a shock, but “if you love someone, set them free…” In this case, I am SO HAPPY for you and am content to be your ex-wifi if you have found your true Love. I hope your time together is everything you want it to be. Love is not determined by age or distance. I understand those telling you to be cautious, but it was nice to have it counterbalanced by some tales of those who found each other on the Internet. The time is getting closer and I know you must be so excited. I love it that you have each had health benefits from your relationship already. The mind and body do impact each other!
    Blessings, love, and hugs to both of you,

  22. Hello Ralph. You do not know me however I am one of LOVE’S blogging friend’s (with my Burmese cat Purrince Siddhartha Henry). It is a pleasure to meet you & read your blogpost! When I saw your comments on LOVE’S blog posts I had a feeling something good would happen for you both & I am thrilled that you have found each other. LOVE is who she says she is….no Nigerian scamming you here! I had a scammer back in 2010….but he never got my money or my heart. In fact, I exposed his identity & even where he went to use the PC to send emails etc to all of us gullible women. I even have him (with true identity) on FB. He does not know who I am (that is another sotry).
    Congratulations on finding ‘LOVE’! She is a wonderful woman!!!

      Hey, you must be one of Natascha’s close blogging friends.. It is lovely to meet you and thank you so much for your lovely comments in both of my posts. Natascha has volunteered to answer comments in the other post. You are all mine here. She is so much a part of my life now and she is a real sweetheart. It was so difficult for both of us to tell the world about us in comments and tried unsuccessfully to comment normally. I am so pleased that anyone knows now about our love for each other. Hah, I see that you two chat away in cat talk. I tried to Google translate your words, totally unsuccessfully and Google blew up ! lol
      I do have two cats that have been with me for 14 years and they are lovely, but I am biased. lol, Even so, I use them as sort of cartoon characters in my posts and they always give me grief and always seem to win. I love doing those posts.
      Anyway, thank you so much for saying hi in both my posts and Natascha’s post.
      Have a lovely Sunday with Purrince Siddhartha Henry (now that is some name !). I am now talking with Natascha which we have been doing all day, every day And I agree with you that she is a wonderful woman and I am such a lucky man to call her my girlfriend.

  27. You sound like such a sincere good person, I wish for all the best for you.
    I would keep my expectations in check (that’s me), I don’t take disappointment very well.

      Take care. Ralph xox ❤

    • Hello Daniela 🙂
      Oh, you are so sweet ! Thank you so much for your lovely comment and, yes, we have been enjoying every single second together. I still can’t get over the fact that four months ago both Natascha and I were in the same predicament of really having no future alone at home. Since then a miracle happened and we got together …….. somehow !
      Have a lovely week dear Daniela.
      Love Ralph xox ❤

      I hope that you and your family are having a lovely day my friend.

  29. I say seize the moment and the opportunity of a wonderfully loving experience. Enjoy living in the ‘now’ and clearly your inner wishes have been answered and deservedly so. (Obviously I’m devastated Ralphy.. hubby will have to put up with me for a while longer.. haha) xx

    • Hi Wendy 🙂
      Oh no ! I am so sorry that you are devastated and have to put up with hubby now. I feel awful, but happy that you are not alone my friend. lol
      Seize the moment is definitely the right phrase for Natascha and I in getting together.
      Big hug. Ralph xox ❤

  30. Dear Ralph, such an amazing occurrence! Your friend just got married and now, your buddies will have to come up with an exciting bachelor’s party for you.
    I am happy for you and Love sounds fabulous! I think it is great she’s coming there. This means she will be able to find out how to fit in with your cats, neighbors and lovely friends. Hope the cuddling is extra special, Ralph.💞🌹❤❤

      Love Ralph xox ❤


  31. I am Luke and I am your son. Forget what I said earlier dad. Your comment got me in such a lather, my bubbles burst and I found myself
    e(v)ade(r)ing the truth. I can’t wait to meet my mother-in-law! 🙂

  32. Got here late, Ralph. Congratulations. She is a bombshell. Fantastic, youthful, natural beauty. So long, Bongo Bongo Banana, an Austrian queen has arrived. I’ll be sure to drop in on you both when I pass through Vienna. Coffee’s on me.

  33. How exciting Ralph! I missed so much in the almost 12 months of not blogging. I’m looking forward to the next post to read more of your romance! 😃

    • Yes, it is really exciting and I never thought for one moment that anyone would take any interest in me at all. I had resigned myself to living alone for the rest of my life. Then wham, Natascha came into my life and we have never looked back. It’s amazing how our paths of life are worked out for us and usually we don’t have a clue of what is about to happen.
      I hope you are well and happy dear Kate. Ralph xox ❤
