I have met someone amazing. I could gush about him, but we already recognize that we're disgustingly affectionate and it's only been a week and a half since we've met.
We started talking about a month ago on OKC. Chat sessions about twice a week that lasted for hours until we noticed the clock hit 3am.
He asked me out on a date. On Wednesday, June 5th, we decided to meet at the mall. It was wonderful. I was shy. We sat close on the couch and looked up anime titles on his phone. He gave me a kiss before we left.
Friday we went to Olive Garden for dinner. He came over and ended up spending the night. Saturday we stopped at Dunkin Donuts for hash browns, a bagel, and he had an incident with his coffee on our way up to Southington for a rain garden volunteer project. We got sandwiches at D'Angelo's and ate them at Sleeping Giant State Park. We stayed so long we almost got locked in. We got a pizza from Capatorto's and ate it on a picnic table outside city hall. We went over my best friend's house and hung out with her for a few hours. She said we're basically the same person. I think it was 3am again when he went home and I went to bed.
Sunday I went over his house where we hung out until we met up with his friends at Hammonasset Beach State Park and can a little fire while listening to the waves and watching the stars. It was about 2am when we left. We stopped at Twin Pines Diner on our way back since we hadn't eaten. He had pancakes and I had eggs. I think it was 4:30am when I got to bed. The sun was coming up.
It was the best weekend I've ever had.
During the week, we hung out almost every day.
Monday I went over his house and got home in the wee hours of Tuesday.
Tuesday I saw my friend Jackie and then I got sick.
Wednesday I went to the doctor, found out i had(have) strep, and began antibiotics.
Thursday he came over to take care of me and helped me feel better.
Friday we went to Texas Roadhouse Grill with two of his friends. I stayed the night with him at his house. Saturday morning, he fed me grapes in bed and then made me scrambled eggs. We spent some time avoiding tiny spiders on his front steps before hanging out on the foyer floor. We ate rolo minis and napped on my picnic blanket in his yard in the shade of a swamp maple. We went to another sandwich place for dinner before heading to the mall. We tried to see Man of Steel but it was sold out. We ate our subs and wandered. We got a chocolate shake and drank out of the two straws while I cheated at playing I-spy. We know when we're being too affectionate, so we tried being a proper English Gentleman and Lady and we just ended up giggling more. We ended up seeing Man of Steel in the IMAX 3D. I was pissed that the Hobbit Trailer wasn't shown (because different formats have different trailers and I forgot that). I don't think it was worth the money. $5 Tuesday it if you must. We went back to his house to try and find my phone and watched the Hobbit trailer on his computer. I got home about 4am.
Today is father's day so I did not see him today. It was a nice day spent playing aggressive badminton with my family. We had a skype date about 9pm and talked until about 1am.
He's the sweetest man I've ever met and I'm hating the thought of being so far from him when I go up to UConn in the fall. I know that we're both willing to make that work as best we can though.
He's going to be my date to Nerd Prom at CTCon this year.
I'm falling for him much quicker than I planned. It's terrifying to me because I'm pretty sure he already has enough of me to break my heart. He said he'd like a monogamous relationship with me and I'm slowly moving down that path. I've honestly lost interest in seeing anyone else (including the people I've been talking to) in a romantic capacity. I've been trying to bring this up as a conversation to see how serious he is, but I've been too afraid to actually say it.
This wasn't the plan. The plan was to not commit to anyone until there was at least a promise ring on my finger.
I never thought I'd meet someone so soon after my last relationship (</feb>). I never thought I'd meet someone like him at all.
