LET ME GUSH FOR A MINUTE

Because I'm so so so happy 💕
  1. In January, I said I was going to take a break from dating for a while and spend some time figuring out what I want.
    I don't normally give myself those breaks... And I didn't really this time either. I probably would have, if it weren't for my best friend.
  2. I didn't see it coming before that night.
    He kept his arm around me the whole night and held me up for hours when I fell asleep during our movie marathon.
  3. When I woke up I was covered in a blanket. Just as I was getting ready to go to bed he said my name, smiled and kissed me.
    I was 100% okay with it.
  4. Since then it has been a bit of a whirlwind
    The good thing is, we don't have to go through the "getting to know you" phase. We were already close before.
  5. However, there are other factors
    We have the same friends, and they're not exactly used to it.
  6. But they were kind enough to give us some alone time while we all went to a cabin a couple of weeks ago.
    Though that alone time was very little, I learned a lot about him as we talked until 5 am.
  7. "I'm so glad I have you." Is what he sleepily mumbled to me when he thought I was already asleep.
    The look of surprise on his face when I said I was glad to have him too, gave me the biggest smile.
  8. When I was sick last week and had to cancel our date, he tried to get me to allow him to take care of me.
    My family was already swarming me so I thanked him and had him stay home.
  9. When I was busy on Saturday and running around like crazy, he said that all he wanted was to see me so I managed to force a half hour out of my schedule.
    We met up at a coffee shop and chatted until it was time for me to go. A solid 27 minutes later.
  10. He actually wants to meet my parents.
    They've heard plenty about him, they just don't know we're dating now. Though the thought of introducing any guy to my parents, terrifies me. He said he would be willing to wait until I was more comfortable.
  11. I don't even make that an option in most cases, but it's different with him.
    I'm comfortable and I trust him.
  12. I'm best friends with his roommates too so that's also a bonus
    They were already used to me being over all the time because I was always hanging out with them as well.
  13. And I think we're pretty cute too. This is actually from the movie night where I fell asleep.
    It was pajama night, but you can't see my awesome cat onesie in this photo my friend took
  14. I don't know what we're doing exactly
    Sort of scares the hell out of me, but I still like it.
