I dropped him off att he airport yesterday. It was hard to drive away. The last two weeks I was on such a love high…The whole thing felt like a beautiful dream. Balloon rides, wine tasting, walking on the beach, sleeping in the same bed…
The next few days will be about distracting myself so I don’t slip into sadness over his departure. I want him to be here, but I also know that if we just let things develop as they develop, our relationship will be happy and healthy. I don’t want a fairytale, I just don’t want to rush anything. I’ve been there and done that. This feels so good and so right, I don’t mind taking my time.
Who knows…We might end up together for the long haul. So whats a little distance until we get things sorted out.
For now, I send my love to him through the ether.
I love you David. Thank you for making me believe again.
First things first: David’s here! *does happy dance*
Check out his blog to see what’s been happening over the last couple days. I’ll also tell you my short version just to catch you up.
In & Out for the first meal in SoCal. Friday was a domestic day…washing clothes groceries…that sort of thing. Saturday we went wine tasting in Temecula. Today we’re going on a balloon ride.
It’s been awesome and he’s only been here 4 days! The first hug was a little nervous but once we got over the initial shock of actually being in each others’ presence, the nervousness dissipated and we were like old friends.
What else can I say? It’s been wonderful. I’m enjoying every moment.
Yep, it really has been a year. It seems a little like a lucid dream but its all so real (especially since we’ve got money invested). I have to admit that even I was a skeptic at first. I mean really, a long distance (7,000 miles to be exact) relationship with someone I met on the internet? For a while I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then we had a few arguments and started talking about the future and things became more and more real.
The only thing that was really making things hard was the distance. Hell, that’s a pretty big deal, I’d say. And as time went on and the yearning to be in his presence grew deeper, I decided that I couldn’t go beyond a year in the relationship without at least a visit.
So David and I talked about it and began saving money (Yes we both saved. What a bitch I’d be to ask him to fly 7k miles and not even be willing to pay half of his nearly $800 air fare?) and he promised that by the time our one year anniversary came, we would meet.
Well, our anniversary was two days ago, but not to worry, we shall meet in person next Thursday and spend two wonderful weeks together.
Am I nervous? Hell yeah!
Am I excited? Are you freakin’ kidding me?
I don’t know that I’ve ever been more nervous or excited about anything.
So there you have it.
