It’s been almost 3 weeks, I guess I have kept you in the dark long enough.
Let me start from the beginning, and that’s almost 3 months ago…
This girl met a boy at work. Crazy, I know! It all started with a little
small talk smack talk about sports. Yes, I am that girl who captures the hearts of guys everywhere with my vast knowledge and love of sports. Our mutual love of sports ends there because our teams are always on opposite ends of the field, if you know what I mean. 😉
Our small talk continued for weeks until the Yankees (my team) were playing against the Red Sox (his team). I decided to take our bantering to the next level, I asked for his number so I could make fun of his team during the series. Honestly, at that time, it was my only reason behind asking for his number. And so the smack talk continued for weeks until he asked me to meet him out for dinner and to watch a game. Up went my walls.
I don’t even know how many weeks went by with him asking me out, but I always had an excuse on why I couldn’t.
Finally he got the best of me and I agreed to go spend the day with him in Orlando. It was one of the best days I had in a while. I was relaxed, I was myself and I had a lot of fun! We continued to talk on a more regular basis, and it started to involve slightly less sports smack talk. I was getting to know a great guy. Then the big question came, “Want to go see a movie?”. I couldn’t say no anymore. One movie date came and went, and then another came. I was interested, to say the least. After preaching about living life and taking leaps of faith, I decided maybe I should take one myself.
After months of smack talk, small talk, and serious talk I took the leap and and decided we should be together. He should be my boyfriend. Whoa! So here I am, 3 weeks into my new relationship. You ask, I tell. 🙂
A little about us…
- I am older, he is younger.
- His name is Alexander. My middle name is Alexandra.
- I am a brunette, he is a red head.
- I am the youngest child, he is the oldest child.
- I am the extrovert, he is the introvert.
- I am random, he is thoughtful.
- I am loud and obnoxious, he is calm and quiet.
- I am adventurous, he is sensible.
- I talk (a lot), he listens.
- I am independent, he is chivalrous.
Relationships are about compromise. That’s something I will need to learn. We have talked about our individual plans for the future and how they impact a relationship. I have discussed, at length, my desire to move and he is open to the idea as soon as he finishes this last year of school. We’ve talked about school, career, family and a lot of other important things. What can I say? I am inquisitive. I need to know all things important! 😉
We are definitely opposites, but we bring out the best in each other. Sometimes I still have some insecurities, but I wouldn’t have taken his leap if I didn’t trust him explicitly. We have a lot of fun together doing simple things. It’s too early to tell where we are headed, but it will be an adventure for sure. I am certain that this is bound to be something special and I am happy I took a chance on us.
There ya have it! I hope that covers everything. Sorry if it isn’t too juicy, but I am happy. I am sure I’ll be back with more as our relationship unfolds. He knows about the blog, knows where to read it, and knows nothing (well almost nothing) is off limits here. Eek! 😉
