Wednesday I attended the open house, and meditation for the Shambhala group, and bought a book to read on that particular type of buddhism, and I will definatley be back to learn more.
After that .....I met up with the new guy.
I told him all about my night at the center, and he said he'd never judge me for my beliefs and was open to listening to me, and it spiraled a huge discussion about religion, which turns out we are both passionate about different things, but not in an over the top I'm right kind of way, which is awesome. During which, we laughed, and were serious, and laughed, and kissed.
My favorite thing about a person, is the ability to make me laugh, and make me think all at once.
It then sparked a conversation all about how he hasnt had a girlfriend in 5 years, and it isn't because he isn't a catch, but because he hasn't found a girl worth dating. No one he is interested in talking to, or able to hold a conversation. He thinks theres a reason we've been in each others lives the last 4 years and have tried "dating", and I agreed.
So, I came out and asked if he was seeing anyone, I'm not, should I take down my online profile, yes, you should. (I wouldn't want to be a ((insert exassholemanfriends last name here)) and actively peruse my profile while I'm dating someone)
And just like that...it got serious. And exclusive. And honestly, I couldn't be happier. We both like the direction its going, and the pace, which is slow.
Everyone else in our lives thinks this is it for us, and have been telling us that all along. But our timing was always off. One of us wasn't ready when the other one was. At first, neither of us even wanted to be ready, it was strictly a FWB type deal.
This time, we both are.
I hairdryed his pants someone spilled a drink on at a party last weekend, and he mentioned to me during our talk how awesome that was for me to do. Awesome? That's nothing. This boy is gonna fall head over heels for me, cus I'm one hell of a girlfriend!
I bet it's kinda like that Survivor song, the search is over, love was right before my eyes....
How's that for taking it slow?
