When I hear people say that they “knew immediately” that their significant other was “the one”. The skeptic in me usually feigns and impressed look, but internally I roll my eyes. I mean, come on, that’s movie shit. That doesn’t happen in real life. Those feelings are reserved for teenagers and the weak. :)

Until last month, I wholeheartedly believed that. I’ve never been in love, lust maybe, ;). But then I met this guy. He is nice, humble, fair haired, free with his praise, reserved, respectful, engaging. Not at all like the guys I had been meeting or thinking I was looking for. I wasn’t ready for him to be so into me so it was a little disconcerting at first. It was after our second date and hours and hours of conversation that I started to let my guard down. He didn’t try to kiss me on either of our dates, that’s when I started to fall. He wasn’t coming on strong, I didn’t feel any pressure, he didn’t have any ulterior motives. The kindness and compliments kept coming even when I confessed that I’m not good at taking them. They may have even increased.

Currently I spend more time than I should looking at or listening for my phone. Then smiling at it and floating through my day.

This is probably a temporary feeling, but I can safely say that I’ve never experienced this and it surprises me how quickly it happened. It might even qualify for “immediately”. Whatever this is, I don’t want it to end. ;)
