Alright, I can’t keep it in anymore. In fact I have to tell the whole world. I’m twitterpated. I’m smitten. I’m in deep smit. People told me it would happen but I didn’t really believe them. I blame my cousin Greg who basically set us up and wouldn’t stop singing my new lover’s praises. Everyone agrees that he is beautiful. I haven’t met anyone who didn’t think this, in fact. I think my parents are gonna love him. They’ve even met him briefly and I’m pretty sure they thought he was nice.
What is he like? Well, where do I start? He’s incredibly multicultural, which I love. I can’t even keep track of how many languages he speaks. He really is so multifaceted. He’s really into sports but also super artsy and business oriented and loves biking. He’s cutting edge yet also kind of a hippy. He really has amazing taste in music…which was actually the first reason I thought about seeing him. Before I even met him I knew he sounded like a great fit for me but I honestly wasn’t looking for a long term relationship. Now when I talk to people about him and tell them that I’m only looking for casual and in this for no more than a year they give me a knowing look and tell me, “just wait and see…” Apparently he’s very seductive as well. Although he’s always beautiful to me he’s not always hot but I’m okay with that. He’s highly unpredictable so I have to be prepared for anything when I’m with him. It keeps life interesting. Sometimes he’s all sunshine and flowers and the next minute he has a massive storm cloud hovering overhead. But the dark clouds usually pass pretty quickly. I’ve told him that my true love is on the west coast of Canada, but he doesn’t let that deter him. He seems to have a lot confidence in what he has to offer. I’ve always been a sucker for confidence.
People who have known him their whole lives are incredibly loyal to him and talk about him with that glazed over look of adoration in their eyes. So I guess you could say I feel pretty lucky that I found him.
The other special thing about him is he’s always there for me. There have been times lately where I’ve been tempted to leave him when I think about my true love back home and how comfortable that relationship was. Sometimes the cultural and language barriers with him get to me, and I get frustrated and upset and feel stupid, but he always finds a way to win me back and reassure me that things will get better. It’s always at my lowest moments that he gives me yet another reason to stay with him. He’s clever like that. I’m never upset with him for more than a day it seems. I know he’s not perfect and I’m pretty sure his imperfections will become more apparent the longer we’re together, but right now I’m in the infatuation stage and he can do no wrong.
Don’t think I haven’t dated around because I have and I will all year. He knows we’re in an open relationship, and he’s cool with this (so far), but I always seem to come back to him. One weekend away from him and I’m leaping back into his arms. Yep, he’s incredibly charming.
Okay, I’ll just come out and say it. Hamburg, Germany, I am totally and completely “head over heels, let’s cuddle all day, dine out together every night and cry when we can’t see each other” in love with you. You’ve stolen my heart.
