"I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. But you have to try, because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived." --Anthony Hopkins, "Meet Joe Black
I have had the most amazing few weeks ever.
It seems so silly, because so many of my blogs have begun with "I had a great date!" or "I met the most amazing guy!" At this point, it is beginning to sound a little overused. However, I think that I may have actually gotten it right this time. I keep pinching myself.
We went on our first date to a sushi restaurant. He showed up with flowers, and I spent the next hour or so thinking that he had the most amazing green eyes that I have ever seen. I was really nervous, and I'm not really sure if I hid it well or not (most likely not), but by the end of the date, I was smitten. After we polished off a few sushi rolls (including eel....I cannot believe that I ate eel!), we walked over to a frozen yogurt place. After that, we had a glass of wine next door at another restaurant. I didn't want the date to end.
Since then, we have seen each other at least every other day, sometimes several consecutive days. The funny thing is that I don't care what we do when we are out. I would be perfectly happy watching paint dry with him. We took Kylie to a baseball game last weekend, and when he showed up at my house to pick us up, he brought flowers to Kylie. It's the first time that a boy has ever given her flowers. Furthermore, when he arrived, my hair was still in a towel and I had zero makeup on, and he didn't run away. That alone makes him an amazing person.
We spent this entire weekend together. He met me at work yesterday and hung out with me for thirty minutes or so, and we had dinner at P.F. Chang's. He is so easy to talk to and be with. I keep waiting for something to pop up that makes me realize that this entire thing was simply a figment of my imagination, but nothing has made that happen. I tend to fall hard for the guys that I date, and it has left me a little battered and scarred. For whatever reason, this feels different. Last night after dinner, he looked at me and said, "This just feels right." I was thinking it, but I certainly wasn't going to be the first to say it. Too often, I have gotten ahead of myself and imagined that things were progressing faster than they actually were. This however, seems different.
I hope that this really is right. :)
