Sorry I've been gone so long kiddies...I've been very busy!
Let's see, working on applying to grad school...le sigh...I'm not looking forward to PAYING for grad school.
Oh yes...the love life, I know I NEVER talk about that here ;-) Things are going well with EG. I always try not to get my hopes up, given my track record and all, but I am smitten. We've upped our once weekly outings to twice weekly get togethers, including cozy nights at home. Last night was the best one yet. He cooked me dinner: salmon, baked potatos, and salad...yum-o! We then settled in to watch Stranger Than Fiction which was pretty good, except for the fact that the DVD was scratched and kept doing that annoying stop/skip thing. Needless to say we missed a few parts, but I'm over it. Anyhow. Afterwards he was so cute...he had his hand on my back, so I asked him to rub my back. Next thing I know he jumps behind me, and rubs for a few minutes, then he just wraps his arms around me. I just love when guys do this, I dunno, it makes me feel kinda both protected and cared for. Anywho, after sitting like that for a few moments, I said, "Ok, time to go, you have work in the morning." So he says, "OK," but just sits there with his arms around me. So I say, "You know, in order for me to get up you have to let go of me," to which he replies, "I know, but I don't want to." I almost died right there. Yeah, as you might imagine, I'm pretty used to the lines guys use by now, but honestly, with EG things are so different. I really feel like he means what he says. I guess the big reason is that I feel like he's not just trying to get in my pants. Granted, at this point he very well may be trying to get in my pants, but I know that's not the only thing he's looking for. I mean, I've been talking to the guy since mid-November, and we've done nothing more than kiss. O.K., there have been some pretty lengthy lip lock sessions...but that's it, not even over the clothes groping. So, you're probably thinking "how boring," but really It's pretty darn nice considering my recent past.
In any case, I get to meet some of his friends this week. He's turning 29 on thursday (yes, I'm dating a younger man) and he made it a point to let me know how much he wants me to come to his celebration on friday...yippee! I hope he likes what I got him...tickets to a Red Sox v. Braves game. The only trick now is to keep on his good graces until mid-May so I can go with him.
Ok...that's all for now...it's nap time. Nighty-night.
