No longer am I a lonely writer, well I’ll still keep those and add onto the Musings of a Lonely Writer posts just because of other reasons but none-the-less I’ve got a boyfriend now, my first and hopefully last!!!! Ok so I’ve known Anthony for 4 years but only at our place of worship, The Kingdom Hall. Well I was adamant we would not get along but last month a friend at out hall came to me thinking I was dating Anthony or had an agreement for dating and it shocked me and so thinking Anthony didn’t know I decided to meet him in a public setting to speak with him.
At this fast food restaurant we talked and decided to learn to be friends as my friend Kendra had said if when you go there that you know him 100% and can say you don’t want anything then by all means tactfully explain that but I didn’t know him at all so I decided to get to know him better.
He’s really been there for me the last month and me for him and we’ve learned we have tons in common and he’s even a writer too and of science fiction / fantasy like me!!! Squeals for how brilliantly perfect that is!! There have been rough patches and misunderstanding but we are mature enough (I’m 29 years and he’s 24 years old) to talk through them and move forward.
Well the one day I thought well maybe he only wants friends and nothing more which I wanted to know sooner rather than later and we discussed it but I was still upset and unsure of where we stood after he left my parents house and so I texted him and he called me on his break at work and said he would date me now and that he was only waiting as he didn’t think I was ready. He held back in our talk as did I so we’ve basically shown we are learning to communicate and are lacking in some respects but are learning.
So that night he came by my parents house and my mom stayed up to chaperone and we talked and he asked me to close my eyes and he went to his car and came back and placed a bouquet of red and white carnations in my hands and asked me to date him and I said YES!!!!! However through one more large rough patch we are in a good place and so I’m going to add some pictures of a gift he made me for my hair before we even began dating and then the gift I made him and then the flowers and then some pictures of me and him, lol! So excited!!! Can’t you tell?????!!!!! LOL!
He made me the hair piece!
I made him the cookies in a jar as he likes baking!
He gave me the red and white carnation flowers when he asked me out!
Then a few of the below pictures are of him with his cat Mercy on his head or shoulder and then the ones below that are of our mini-first date, we went to an old mill like museum and then to some green houses at a college! The Swan we kept trying to get in the background of our pictures decided to play nice at the end and I was able to get a quick picture of it so because of all the trouble I went through to get it I am adding it here, lol!
