“People aren’t even dating anymore, just talking, catching feelings, sleeping together, and ending up in situationships”
I was doing great. I had a terrible breakup in August, but I was recovering, finding myself and having so much fun dating. True, I was a little bit, ahem, active, but hell guys do it, why can’t we! I was having a blast. Then it happened. Feelings. Dammit.
No one is perfect, but he is perfect for me. He is tall, dark, handsome, and a witch! I mean seriously. We have a lot in common and it was like that feeling that we have known each other forever. Comfortable, you know? He sings karaoke (Like OMG he is damn good) and even did a Grease duet with me (Like, really??). Our pillow talk was about involved things like Chernobyl and serial killers. Amazing. Then I did the thing I promised myself I wouldn’t do. I dropped my guard and I let myself feel. First guy I have let myself feel for since my big break up, and it happened way to fast. Dammit.
He disappeared on me once, a few weeks after we started hanging out the first time.. I let it go, there was a twinge of pain, but nothing to write home about. Then at Yule, he came back. One single message from him and I was right back to where I was. Smiling like an idiot for days. Dammit.
We had the best date, we went singing then hung out and cuddled. It was perfect. I let him sleep over… I don’t let anyone sleep over, ever. Ever. It was a big step for me, and now it is also a big step back. Trust is hard for me, and it is easy to break, not forever, just a little bump. I hate that I feel this way. Dammit.
Now, to be clear, I was not trying to relationship him. We both have stuff going on and we are wicked busy, but the potential was there for the future and I felt, at the very least, we I had found someone to cuddle with when I needed it. Now that is gone. Dammit.
He didn’t disappear, he was honest. He needs to figure out what is going on with someone who is not me. I appreciate his honesty. He still would like to be friends, I am open, but I am not going to put myself out there because I know it won’t end well. I love the time that I got to have with him. I still think he is in my life for a reason. Maybe not in a romantic way, but it some way. Witch’s intuition, and I am sticking to it, dammit.
This whole thing has really got me thinking. I might be ready for a relationship. I got really upset yesterday and through my tears I said I was done dating, but to be honest, that’s not possible. To find a mate, you have to date! (See what I did there?) I don’t want to rush anything, but I am ready for more than a hookup. I am ready to be loved, dammit, and I deserve it!
