Where do I even begin on this one.
Mr. L was the guy I started dating a few weeks after I moved to Florida. He was also the first guy I dated after my divorce. He was nice, goofy and immature. It would have never worked so I was secretly happy he decided to move to Colorado. All of my exes now live in one state so I should probably NEVER move back there.
I stopped sleeping with him about a month ago and turned whatever we had into a friendship. I also started dating someone new last week. Stay with me here, this is going somewhere I promise.
I had lunch with Mr. L over the weekend to say a final goodbye. We got caught in the rain, had a few laughs and enjoyed ourselves. Shit got real when we were sitting in his car saying goodbye. He actually said “I’ve never said this to anyone so I’m not entirely sure but I love you.”
What the fuck? Where did that come from and what the hell do I say? It was like a scene out of a movie and it took everything I had to not say thank you and come up with something better to not break the boy’s heart.
Are you dying to know what I said? Well… It was something along the lines of “that’s so sweet, I care a lot about you.” He actually said “you’re not going to say it back?”
Ha, no buddy I’m not!!
I walked into work today and had a message from the front desk saying I had a package. It was a huge bouquet of roses from Mr. L and a card thanking me for the time we spent together and how much he already misses me. He left for Colorado this morning.
Seriously you guys, where do I find these guys?? I’m destined to be single forever.
Well, maybe not. Things are going oddly fantastic with my fisherman. I say oddly because I clearly have shitty luck in the love and dating department.
On Saturday my fisherman picked me up and we headed to the beach to snorkel and volunteer for a reef cleanup. It may sound like an odd date to you but I loved it! I really appreciate being around active, excited and passionate people especially after being with my POS cheating ex-husband who preferred to sit his ass on the couch than do ANYTHING else!
When I found out we were spending the day at the beach I pretty much didn’t eat for three days for the fear and anxiety of having to rock a bikini in front of him for the first time… I’ve since eaten my weight in Nutella, who am I kidding?
To make a long date short, it was awesome! Even saw a 10 foot nurse shark! He took me to lunch after which included a makeup- and deodorant-free few hours, so to say the least, he knows me well now. It also involved getting caught in and running through a crazy rain storm, stopping at a turtle rescue because he thought I would like it, a stop at my house so I could shower followed by him making dinner then watching a movie. He even pulled vegetables from his garden for our salad.
Um, if you like it, put a ring on it?
Too soon? OK OK you’re right….
But c’mon, he even has his own garden, loves to cook, owns his own house and insists on carrying my bag, snorkel gear or whatever else I’m holding. That my friends, is a good man! Oh and the chemistry? It’s pretty hot! #winning
