expectations

April 28, 2011 at 7:55 am 3 comments

i’ve always hated when people tell me “it will happen when you least expect it”. no it won’t! i’m bitter. i’m jaded. i’m independent. i’m your classic modern day bitch and it will happen when I say it will.

or not …

the house hunter and i have now made it through date five. in what … three weeks? and dare i admit that tonight there was talk that included the term “date 48”. we even calculated that to get there puts us at an easy six months out! he’s done everything that should have me running in the other direction. changed his custody schedule. shut down his match account. texts at some point every morning and throughout the day. and ~ please house hunter forgive me for throwing your masculinity under the bus ~ has signed texts with x’s and o’s.

but he’s also made it clear his kids come first. his girls are his world and i love that he’s ensured he has them more than the standard “divorced dad” schedule. he seems attentive. interested. supportive. without being clingy or needy ~ physically or emotionally. work, workouts, responsibility. it all comes first. but this unexpected us is an added bonus that might just make both our lives a little better.

i know it’s too soon to know exactly where we’re going. hell, it’s really too soon to even consider that we’re going anywhere. but somewhere in my lack of expectations i’m already looking forward to date 48 six.

    Yay! Sounds like a great guy. I love that his kids are his world. As it should be at this stage of the game 🙂

    Is it wrong of me to be a lil jealous? I covet my neighbor’s crap all the time. My bad.

    But truly – totally love reading this! I’m happy for you and it gives me hope!

    I’m so happy for you. I hope before getting to date #48 we get a little more detail on your current dates with the house hunter 😉
