The Big Step.....

So as most of you have seen on my FB, I am now "Facebook Official" (FBO), with Tim. (I've never been FBO with anyone, so it's a little weird! ha!) He's the actor that I was telling you about in my last blog. He's awesome. We've been talking to each other for 6 weeks but it seems like longer because we talk pretty much everyday. Today, we both had the day off of work, so we went to lunch then hung out in Central Park for a few hours.

Throughout the conversation, he threw out, "My friend always has a huge Thanksgiving dinner. I'd love for you to come." ---- which made me think, Whoa, that's over a month away & he's thinking about that already!!

Later on, we were sitting on a bench, listening to a man play his saxophone, his arm around me, my head on his shoulder, and all I could think of was... So this is what it's like to be in an adult relationship.

I think I've only ever dated boys, but I'm ready for a man. Tim is a man. He's a grown up but not too serious & I really like that about him. He's so nice, caring, funny and genuinely likes me. He isn't afraid of commitment. I don't necessary mean commitment for a romantic relationship, but a commitment to things... like jobs, his schedule.... not floating around anymore like we all did in our early 20s. He is committed to making his life better everyday and wants to include me in that. I already feel more adult! :) But at the same time, I feel like a 12 year old again.....butterflies and all!

So to make a long Blog short..... He brought up the conversation and told me that he wasn't seeing anyone else but me & that he didn't want to see anyone else. He asked if I was seeing anyone else, and I said "No."--because I haven't even looked at okcupid since we started talking. (Whoa! I just realized that!)

I told him that I haven't had a boyfriend since right after college in 2003 and that "I didn't know how adults did this but....are you asking me to be your girlfriend??" It was cute... but also true. How do adult "commit" to each other? Check Yes or No?

We talked some more and......I'm dating Tim. YAY!! I really like him!! YAY!! He's a grown up. YAY!! He wants to introduce me to his friends this weekend. YAY!! He's adorable. YAY!!

Since my blog was originally for all the horrible dates I went on... and obviously, I won't be going on any more, any time soon.... this blog is defunct for now. Maybe I can twist it into a different subject someday soon, but for now, I'm going to focus on dating Tim.



  1. I saw the pics and wondered if that's what that was! So thanks for the update. Have fun!

  2. You wrote, "I'm dating Tim" - no girl, you are now "In A Relationship" :-)
    Have fun & enjoy the ride :-D
