Life is funny. Things happen when you least expect it. For me, I fell head over heels in love when I least expected to do so.
Around early July, I was done with dating and guys. I told a few friends about that after being set up on a date and then having him contact me fo a second, then cancelling and well, not contacting later. It didn’t bother me all that much because I was uncertain about how I felt after the first date anyway. But you know, it was just another thing in the dating game that did my head in. And I thought with uni coming up, I was going to be busy anyway, so it was probably for the best that I gave dating a break.
And then I met JK.
Well, I randomly met him a couple of times through some Meetup groups and while I thought he was cute and a really sweet guy, I didn’t for a moment think he’d be interested in me. But turns out he was. And it’s now almost two months since we have been together.
Dating JK has been so different from every other guy I’ve dated. There are no mixed messages. There is no stress about whether I should call or text. Or whether I will hear from him or not. There are no games. We’ve been open and straightforward from the start. We talk every day. And see each other most weekends. He makes me laugh. He brings a smile to my face with extremely sweet text messages. He surprises me. For our first official date, he planned it all and took me to the theatre. All I knew was we were going to the theatre. The rest of it was a surprise — the actual play, the theatre, the dinner. We share a lot in common — a love for writing, a love for books, a love for the outdoors, for animals, for healthy living. When I was sick a few weeks ago, he brought me chicken soup for dinner and looked after me. I have never been looked after since leaving home at 21.
He wears his heart on his sleeve and I am so glad he took the risk to ask me out. It is just very comfortable. We just click. And it feels oh-so-right.
While I know it’s only been a couple of months, I can’t deny that I’m head over heels in love. In fact, my friend A said that JK is good for me as I’m not as anxious and ‘crazy’ as I used to be. As I write this, I am counting down the minutes to a weekend away together. A weekend of hopefully good weather to enjoy the outdoors and all that the beautiful place he has chosen has to offer.
I’ll see you on Monday!
