I’ve got a boyfriend!

The man from the last post asked me to be his girlfriend. His name is Dave.

I know, right? Craziness.

He demonstrates in every way that he is interested in me and it is mind blowing just how much of a difference that makes.

I do question the speed at which this is going, wondering if it is too fast, especially as my prior relationships were very, very fast. But this just feels right. And it isn’t like he asked me to be his girlfriend on the second date. We’ve spent a lot of time with each other. Hours. And we’re on the same page. Why waste time dicking around or waiting a certain amount of time before saying we’re together?

It is somewhat surprising to me how enthusiastic people have been for us on Facebook. All the support feels nice. People know how shitty and trying all this dating stuff has been. It’s somewhat hard for me to believe that I don’t have to seek out another guy. I’ve found my guy – and he’s a keeper. That’s why I’m fine with saying we’re a couple: I don’t want to worry that he’s searching or for him to worry about me still searching.

I’m telling myself to try not to become one of those couples on Facebook that is saccharinely sweet. But we are Facebook official. Oooo. I like that he changed our status. He’s thoughtful like that.

I look at him and wonder what the future holds for us. I can’t wait!
