Warning: This post is going to be mushy, gushy and lovey, dovey. Read at your own risk! Don't say I didn't warn you- Sorry.
Six months ago today, little Wesley and I made our relationship official. It was even posted on Facebook so you know it's legit. Looking back at where I was a year ago, I would never have thought that I would be in such a great relationship with such a wonderful, loving man. The big kicker is- we met online.... And even crazier! I was a bit skeptical when we went on our first date. Read about my initial thoughts on him here, and about how I changed my mind about him here and here.
The thing that I love most about Wes is the fact that he is not the normal guy that I tend to go for, looks and personality wise. But he is everything that I have ever wanted.
Six months seems like a very short time to know someone, and it is, but I am quite positive that he is my penguin, my lobster, my stud muffin. Is he annoying? Sometimes. Most of the time I am happy every second that I am with him. He makes being in a relationship easy, and trust me. I am a seasoned dater and that is a rare thing to come by. I don't question how he feels about me because he tells me. I never have to worry about what I look like with no make-up on and greasy hair because he lets me know I'm pretty anyways. He welcomes me to any social outing that he's going to, not because he has to, because he wants to- unless it's a boys night of course! He is also smart and successful. I got a catch ladies. Seriously.
SO when did I know it was love? Actually, it was pretty early in our relationship, when I met his friends for the first time. And lucky for me, they are just as amazing as he is. It was also when I saw how he interacted with Roxie. Any guy that is willing to take my pup on walks and ball runs while I am at work is a keeper. Sometimes I wonder if she likes him more than me... She might. I'm okay with it.
Other reasons he's great: There are so many, however, some that come to mind are...
I once complained my feet hurt from working on them all day. I came home and he had got me Dr. Scholl's (for her.)
He lets me sleep in on weekends, makes bagel/coffee runs AND take's Rox out.
He remembers little things I say that I don't expect him to.
He never ever tells me I'm being a bitch. He'll tell me that I'm in a "saucy" mood, or sometimes tell me that I'm being fresh. Thats my que to drop my attitude, and to be honest, I don't even mind. How can you be mad at the world when your boyfriend tells you your being fresh, and then kisses you? You can't. It's impossible!
He bribes me with pretzels and beer. Nuf said.
He's up at 6:30 a.m. every morning to watch stocks and read the news on his ipad. I think that's sexy.
He's political too, which I also like... So different from me!
He like Baseball and Football. The two most important sports in my opinion.
He likes to go all out on vacations. Which is nice because vacations should be times when you spend a little more than you normally would.
He never judges me. I'm the kind of girl who says what she thinks, good bad and ugly. He appreciates that and I appreciate him for it.
He is the king of puns and witty jokes. Some of the stuff he comes up with baffles me, but darnit it's funny!
With all the above said, I have never been happier with my life as I am right now. In a few months we're taking the next step and moving in together. I'm so excited I'm giddy. I can't wait to see where our adventures will take us. <3
