is a dork. I’ve known him for almost five years now and I’m just now figuring this out. Technically we’ve only been dating for about two and a half months now, but we were friends for a long time and we always had more than a little physical attraction. (Although, he has admitted now that he would rather have started dating me in high school and doesn’t know why he waited so long to ask me out… but I know it’s cause he was immature and dumb… haha)
Anyway, back to my original point. He is a dork. I never thought he was before. He plays chess, and used to be in the chess club when he was in middle school. He watches anime (not as bad as I thought). And he is a big ‘ole mamma’s boy, which is adorable:)
I always thought that I knew him pretty well before we started dating, but I guess not as good as I thought! Which is actually good, because it’s really fun to keep learning things about each other after being close friends for so long:)
Life isn’t perfect. If it was it would look like a text book, uniform, perfect, and boring. The ending would make sense, there would be no unanswered questions, and no useless information.
Instead, life is more like a book that has been written by many, many different authors. Ones that don’t really tie what they say into what the others have said. There would be stains, handwritten notes in the margins, highlighted phrases. Pages would be torn out, and some pages would just be blank. In the end there would be too many unanswered questions to count, and it would leave off in the middle of a chapter.
Bottom of the line is that life is messy, it’s not perfect, and sometimes you don’t know what the hell is going on. But would you want it any other way? :)
