THE update

i don't even really know where to start.  i don't like writing too much about my personal relationships on here, because i don't really know who's reading and i guard those relationships quite fiercely.  but i'm so damn happy that i want everyone to know. 

basically, after the incident before california, things have been wonderful with the boy and me, but i was pretty certain that it would be a long time {if ever} that he decided he wanted to actually commit to me and move forward in that relationship.  i figured that we would continue to have fun as long as we could and then eventually i would run out of patience and that would be the end of our little fling.  i hated thinking that way because i have been crazy for him for a long time, but that just kind of seemed to be the road we were heading down.

so imagine my surprise when i got back from nyc last week and he came over to my house to tell me that while i was gone, he realized that he was falling in love with me.  and then proceeded to ask me if i would like to spend memorial day weekend with him and his family at his parents' home. 

which is exactly what we did.  and on sunday night, he finally {!} told me that he was in love with me, that he didn't want to be with anyone else, and that he was done looking.

so after 4 months of "hanging out" and uncertainty, we are "official".  i feel totally 7th-grade for being so excited about the label of girlfriend, but it's so right where i want to be with him.  we have both been loopy with happiness since then.  lots of goofy grins.  my favorite part of this is that he told his roommate/one of his best friends that he was in love with me the night before i got back from nyc.  and he just looked at him and said, i'm glad you're finally admitting it, man.

so that's my update.  as painfully cliche as it is, i will say i am now a firm believer in second chances and following your heart.  it's a little soon to tell, but i'm pretty sure that he was worth the wait.
