So I met this boy and he kinda became my boyfriend and I’m kinda mucho ‘in like’ with him. I met him on the Junkyard - shocking, I know. We texted, talked on the phone, even Skyped (for 3 hours). Our first meeting was when he surprised me at work on my smoke break. I remember being kind of nervous and looking back on it, it seems so silly because I now know him on a much more personal level. He’s the sweetest, romantic, generous, most ‘adult’ guy I’ve ever dated, and he likes me a lot. Have you ever seen Sex and the City? Remember Aidan? Yeah, that’s pretty much my boyfriend for ya. He’s sweet and goofy and you just can’t help but love him. He’s my Aidan McGoose (He’s Irish and works with geese for his job). We’ve been together for a month now and there’s no signs of any Red Flags - Thank God. Like me, he lives with his P’s to get out of debt so we bonded over that right away. He, too, has a dog and shares my love of pizza. We’re also pretty different too. His taste in music is a bit divergent and he’s more musical (he’s in a band). He’s a free spirit and 98% of the time, a “glass half full” person. I, on the other hand, am NOT musically inclined, and am definitely a “glass half empty” kinda girl.
He asked me to “go steady” whilst walking his dog on a hot, summer night. It was the cutest thing ever. Those nightly dog walks have now become a staple in our routine. We see each other about once or twice a week and regularly keep in touch during the day via phone and text. Like I said, the most “adult relationship” I’ve ever had. There’s absolutely no jealousy or trust issues. He’s too much of a gentleman for all that crap.
Since becoming a twosome, I have ended things with MR. MONDAY NIGHT and severed ties with my booty call (though he did text me to come over the other day and I had to break it to him that I am off the market these days). I am proud to be Aidan’s girlfriend and would never do anything to jeopardize our blossoming relationship. He’s even mentioned moving in together somewhere down the line. I know from past experience that as much as I’d love to live with him, I cannot rush into that. I moved in with my last boyfriend (THE SQUID) after only 3 months and the relationship ended 3 months after that. I see real potential here for Aidan to be “The One” and you can’t rush something you want to last forever.
On a side note: I haven’t written in a while because A. Some douchebag made me feel guilty for living my life the way I do (To quote said douche, “No self-respecting male would ever date you after reading what you write.”); and B. Since becoming someone’ s girlfriend, I felt like I was turning my back on my Mess-like ways. After all, now there won’t be any tragic tales of dates-gone-wrong or strange rolls-in-the-hay. Nope, now I’m being made into an honest woman and it scares the shit outta me. But I’m sure there will still be plenty to write about and I hope you stay tuned. Any feedback is so greatly welcomed.
