Well, I’ve posted about my husband – now it’s time to talk about M.
I actually met M on a dating site – I was mostly looking for friends on OK Cupid, but was open to seeing who was there, if anyone interesting enough caught my eye, dating wise. M had messaged me back in February of this year, and we talked online for quite some time before meeting in person – we actually drifted out of touch for a little bit, but started talking more and more until we agreed that maybe we should actually meet up, which we did in early May. He came to visit me, we wandered around town for hours and talked, and at the end of our date, he gave me a very chaste kiss and watched me ride off into the sunset on my dinky little moped.
It was after that that I decided I wanted to date him, if he was interested. I really enjoyed that afternoon we spent together, and I wanted to see where things would go. He lives an hour away from me, and so we knew we wouldn’t get to see each other much, but considering I’m married, and he was looking for a full time girlfriend, we figured a really casual arrangement would benefit us both.
It didn’t stay casual for long. I fell for him. HARD. I don’t know what it was about him – it might have been the fact that we connect in different ways than Husband and I do. It could be that we both love to draw, both love the same types of sci-fi TV shows, could be how patient he was with me being shy and awkward. All I know is that I fell in love with him.
We spend almost every Sunday together. We cook together, we watch movies, sometimes we go out and wander around the nearby malls, or go to arcades. If there’s a good movie out that we want to see, we’ll go to the movies. We enjoy all the time we get together, and when we’re not together, we talk online. We send each other drawings. We get on Skype sometimes, and watch each other work on artwork, or homework, or all sorts of things.
I wish we could spend more time together, but that’s the nature of how things are between us. There’s too much distance, too many other obligations in the way. But this is better than not having him in my life at all.
