I mean people are probably going to accuse me of boasting or being goady when there are so many problems and breakups and so much abuse going on, but I just have nowhere else I can really share this kind of thing (well, except with her, and she already knows!)
I posted a while ago about how I had a huge crush on a manager, and people here were super nice while I dithered about what to do about it, and eventually asking her out. We've been dating ever since and I swear, she just gets sweeter and sweeter. I'm so in love!
Nothing's really inspired this post except extreme happiness and the fact that she's had a hard day and is currently dead to the world asleep on my arm and kind of drooling a little on my shoulder. I can't stop smiling. I'm just so happy.
I posted this three hours ago lol. She hasn't woken up, not really. She grumbled a bit when I moved her because my arm was going numb. She's quite little (at least a head shorter than me) so I carried her to bed, and she half woke up for that, but she's out again. We had an early dinner, and she sacked out straight afterwards, bless her.
...it sounds like I'm talking about a child. For the record, this is my girlfriend after a ten hour shift on her feet.
Now I'm on the laptop in bed, reading about horrendous baby names and AIBU (I can't help myself) and she's dead asleep curled up next to me.
Ah well, she'll probably be first one awake in the morning which will be good because she'll have to convince me to get up and get moving!
That's exactly how it feels, Shelagh. When I'm not typing I'm running fingers through her hair (she likes that). Oh god I must sound like the sickest, soppiest creeper in creation!
I think a part of me is just still back there before the start of my other thread, fallen for her but never believing it could end up like this, so when we're together like this in such a normal, natural, domestic way I can't quite believe how lucky I got.
