So I know that I have an important responsibility to all you hitched up people and that is to give you the exciting details of my adventures of a single lady. With that said, I will now bring you up to speed on the latest.
There has been a man I have be seeing for a few weeks already (weeks? I know, time goes so fast) and since our first date was New Year’s Eve, we joke we’ve been dating since last year. In that time, I have seen him 6 times already because we just kind of click and it’s nice and it’s fun and it’s easy to be around him. It’s been pretty low key. For example, he was over last night, I made him watch Dirty Dancing as his punishment for forgetting to get a movie on the way over. He’s a clever one because he may have actually fallen asleep during said movie, even though he is really trying hard to down play how long it was for. I just hope he understands that he will watch it from start to finish, because there is no escaping it, and how else will we learn our moves for the dance off I challenged Jenny and her husband to. ( There probably will not be any actual dance -off but there will be a lot of quality smack talk about it! LOL)
If you know me at all, you know that I am one for making regular boring stuff a little bit fancy and exciting. We had talked one day about places we would like to travel and he mentioned that he would like to go to Japan and he didn’t have a specific reason why, and didn’t know much about it, it was just interesting to him. So, me being me, I went on Pinterest, right clicked a bunch of info graphics and made a PowerPoint presentation all about Japan that I saved as an MP4 and uploaded to You Tube so we could watch it on the TV – while eating Chinese food that I tried to pass off as Japanese ( I got sweet and sour chicken and shrimp and told him to pretend the batter was tempura), a cup of noodles ( you know, the 69 cent one in the Styrofoam cup) I made and then poured into bowl and called fancy Japanese style Ramen, and actual Japanese sweets I purchased at an Asian Market. ( On a side note – if you are familiar with the stereotypes of how Asians drive – picture the parking lot at an Asian market. I was the best parker there!)

The best part about it was – I got to do something I enjoy and he seemed actually surprised and pleased and was like, “you did this for me?” and It was nice because for so long, I didn’t do any of that kind of stuff, except with my girlfriends, because it wasn’t appreciated. Also, when I send him silly emails like an invitation to a top-secret screening of Captain America only for undercover super heroes or from the legal department regarding a relationship agreement, he replies appropriately 🙂
I’m enjoying just having fun and getting to know Andy better but I would be lying if I didn’t say there was also a part of me that is really uncomfortable with this. We both watch The Big Bang Theory and so we keep joking about extensions to the relationship agreement ( his request) because I originally told him I was only keeping him around 6 weeks to get through Valentines’ day ( Jokingly, of course, well, kind of, LOL). I don’t know how to trust him completely after everything that happened last time. ( I know, he’s not hewho’snamewedon’tmention , I know it just may take time, I know I just need to give him chance -I do know it all, but knowing something and working it into your thought processes are two completely separate things) He hasn’t given me a reason not to trust him, but after being so foolishly trusting last time, I’m hyper vigilant now.
So since I’m also, pretty certain, my mom doesn’t read this, I will also share the following. We are taking things slow in EVERY aspect, and I don’t normally do that and it’s actually, pretty awesome because it seems to take off a certain amount of pressure and in a weird way, it confirms that when we spend time together it’s about being together and getting to know each other and not just, well, you know. He’s also pretty bashful and would probably turn 47 shades of red if he knew, I just told you, he’s a pretty good kisser.
If you are sitting there reading this and you’re all jealous because you miss the beginning – just bear this in mind. I accidentally ate mayonnaise yesterday. I should have buns of steel from how hard I had to clench last night to make sure there were no pressure releases. I bet you don’t miss those days.
