One year ago today we decided to date. Well, I guess we didn’t really decide on this day in particular, but it is the one year mark of our first date. It wasn’t until about two and half weeks later when I went to visit him that we had the “what are we” talk. The talk was initiated by me because I wanted to keep up the visiting and the hanging out and the being together-ness that had really begun that few weeks earlier. So I asked if we were going to keep going with all that. He said, “I hope so. I want to.”
And here we are, one year later. Happily dating, yet unhappily doing so long distance — but I’d rather be apart together than apart separate. July 5th seemed like a great day for a first date which means it will always be a great day for us to celebrate together-ness, even if we are apart.
