Sanity Check Needed

  1. ~ Sigh ~

    Let me preface this by saying how touched I am with the people who have been so supportive in my new "love interest".... thingie. If you've grown weary of hearing about it you'll want to skip this thread. If I'm getting too chatty about it feel free to say so and I won't post another thing about it.. BUT....

    I am so like a fish out of water. I am feeling overwhelmed and need some input!

    It's been YEARS YEARS since I have actively dated and have been involved with someone. For a long time, I used to wish I had someone I could feel comfortable with, go places with, just sit and enjoy silence with, plan little "get-aways" with, and enjoy their company and attention with no stress, no drama, no "red flags" and no having to guess what their intentions are or if they are who they present themselves to be. For so long, I was always the "fifth wheel" when going out and had graduated to the belief that I was going to be alone - to the point where I got very comfortable with it (going to concerts by myself, etc).

    Well, it's official. I have a boyfriend. He's all those things (so far) I've wanted. So what's the problem, you say? I DON'T KNOW!!

    Someone please tell me!! I'm happy yet anxious. Thrilled yet nervous. What the hell is going on?!? :stone :imbar
