...since I posted something sappy about my Super Cool Man Friend.
I was over at K's new place (Go HERE she is amazing!) and I was reading her sappy story about the love of her life. And it got me thinking. I know, right? Just wave the smoke away. The smell will dissipate soon.
The Super Cool Man Friend and I have officially been dating for five months now. I gotta tell you, it really has been ALL rainbows and kittens and sparkly glitter.
It has been so freaking amazing being with someone so easy to get along with. It is almost like he was created especially for me. He is the Ying to my Yang, the Peanut Butter to my Jelly, the Mash Potatoes to my Ketchup. ...What?
I count the minutes each day until we are together again. I cherish every moment spent in his vicinity. Even if he is on one side of the table on his laptop and I am on the other, on my laptop. I still feel his foot brush mine. I glance up and catch him staring at me with such love in his eyes. I know that if I asked, he would drop everything and do my bidding, whatever it happened to be. And I know, that I would do the same for him.
Sitting on the couch, streaming Netflix is heaven with this man. Laying in bed, in the dark, and discussing life or Robot Chicken is just as enjoyable as going out. I get giddy when the dog runs to the front door each evening because I know that, at any moment, he will be walking inside and coming straight over to me for a kiss and a big hug.
Now you might be wondering why I am telling you all this.
I have been in some pretty horrific relationships the past few, um, ten, years. I had pretty much given up on finding my prince. I was sure I was destined to be that lady who lived alone and ate cat food and hoarded things until one day I found myself trapped in a corner with no way out and two weeks later someone calls the cops because of the wretched stench. Yeah. That lady.
But YAY! I am NOT gonna be that lady! I have found my prince. And guess what??? He thinks I am amazing too! Isn't that something? He is delusional, but don't tell him that okay? But for him..I AM amazing. I love the person I am with him. I love my life. I love OUR life. And no matter what ever happens between us, I know I am a better person just for being with him. He has taught me so much in the last five months about how to be a better partner. And he is a wonderful friend. I am the luckiest gal in the world.
This weekend we get to start moving into our new place. I am really excited. We will be saving tons of money and really paring down to bare essentials, the rest will go into storage. It is about half the size of where we are living now. I despise clutter and this will give me the much needed push to clean out some of my old stuff and get rid of it. Onto our next adventure!
So there you have it folks, my sappy sappy mushy mushy post. Awwwww. Yeah, you can go throw up now.
