Almost six months ago it was the first of the year… I told myself, as the ball dropped, that this new year will be the follow-up to last years “being my year”. I told myself that it was time to seek hope. It was time to seek life. It was time to seek love.
As the year started… everything seemed like it was the same ol’ same ol’. I didn’t notice anything changing. I seemed to continue to walk the same path that I had for the past year. It seemed no matter how hard I actually tried, I couldn’t push myself into a new direction.
I was talking to someone online from time to time that I had hopes for, but I knew in the back of my mind that it wouldn’t lead to anything… story of my life. lol However, Valentine’s Day was coming and I thought to myself… Maybe she’ll want to be my date? I asked her and was shot down, but something else arose from my question… she asked me on a date the week before.
We ended up going out to a restaurant a few days after that conversation. We went one evening after I got off of work (Thursday night, Feb 7th) to Scotty’s Brewhouse. We had a great time. The dinner was fantastic. The conversation was fantastic. The mood was fantastic. It seemed like we both really enjoyed each other’s company.
Flash forward to today…
We have moved in together and have a love for each other that seems, hmmmm… almost as if we have known each other all of our lives. Maybe it was from a past life??? Maybe true love/soulmates really do exist. I really do not know how or why, but I do know that it feels like home. It feels like I have never been complete until she was introduced into my life.
My family loves spending time with her. She loves spending time with my family. A BIG DIFFERENCE from my past relationships, and this is something that is very important to me. I love spending time with her family, as well as they love spending time with me. Everyone has accepted our relationship and has approved of our relationship… not that we need the approval; however, it is nice when family stands behind you and supports your decision.
We both have started to workout… become more fit… Get active. However you would like to word it. I have seen a major change in my health. I have gone from 235+ lbs to 198 as of yesterday. My body is becoming more toned as I hit the weights hard and use Insanity as my cardio. My lady has seen her body tone up and become more stronger.
I am for sure that many more changes and surprises are still to come with this relationship. We have a chemistry that I have never experienced before, and it is an amazing feeling. I can’t wait to see what the future holds…
To Be Continued…
