On One Hand

I met someone.

I just met someone. Rather, I took a serious look at someone I already knew. We hit it off. I had been single for exactly a year, to the day; it was the morning after my birthday that we made plans to go out. For the first time in my life, I made the first move and kissed him next to the pool table at the bar. He didn’t say anything; he just looked at me and smiled for a long time.

Now I’m in that fuzzy honeymoon period between conception and definition; not quite a “boyfriend,” but I can’t beleive it has only been eight days since we met. We can’t beleive it. We are, in the words of a common friend, “an item,” which means something people will talk about. This is the true indication of a relationship. I can sense the news now spreading through the town like ripples.

We are cute together. We were dancing with each other at a bar last night and an attractive, well-dressed 30-something guy bought us both drinks. I think he was trying to impress the girl he was with, but my boy thinks he was hitting on us; yes, on both of us. It was an alluring event for us, but we are too new to entertain those kinds of ideas. This whole situation is a first for me.

When the days pass, they feel like hours, and when I look back at them they feel like months. When I look at him I think I must have known him all my life. I’m working on the little notes I will hide in his bedroom over the weeks to come. We both say we’re surprised that this has happened, but someday we will look back at this and muse over how natural it actually was, that it couldn’t have been any other way.



  1. Good Luck!

    I hope it works out for you.
