It has been over a year now since my last relationship. And I do go through thought patches. And they always start off like this:
Everytime I think about dating again I get a call from my “fabulous friend” Paul.
(This is me and Paul…he’s in the back)
My love for Paul is almost equal to my love/lust for cheese. He was my first real love and my first real heart break. —Amazing how those two things go hand-in-hand—
He is now happily with his partner, and we are the closest friends imaginable. But…like all relationships there are ups and down.
—And Note: if you and your partner NEVER fight then:
A: you are AMAZINGLY lucky
B: one or both of you aren’t being honest with each other
Anyway, When things aren’t sunshine and rainbows for him, he vents to me. Immediately after the phone call I will go to my mother “Everytime I think about dating again, he never fails to call”. And that ends that.
However today, Valentine’s Day 2012, while folding laundry I fell into a thought patch and the most interesting thing happened. I got to talking to another good friend.
—Note: He dates and is Madly-in-Love with another good friend they are below
This is John and Leah.
So instead of getting a rant about why relationships SUCK! I got the exact opposite today…on the Hallmark day of love
—I know RIGHT?!—
John is what I secretly call —the geek dream— Through the odds of distance, he came from GA to be with Ms. Lee Lee back in 2009…and he’s still here. The likelihood of them separating is slim to none.
And Slim left the country years ago.
I look at them as the standard. For the last two years I’ve gone to their place for New year’s Eve. Drinks and Bevs are an ALWAYS but just between us- I go to watch them.
- Not in the perverted way mind you- But I watch them KNOWING that that is exactly what I want. Trust me, if you ever spend time with these two: you’ll see what I mean.
So Today without missing a beat, John begins to recount all the things he’s done for the lovely Ms. Lee Lee:
bacon roses…choc covered strawberry roses: the hungry geek gambit if i don’t say so myself.
So on a day that I
write off when i’m not on the “in love” team, I think his talking to me today was a sign of some good coming my way.
I hope :)
