At Last

My dear readers (if I even have any after my long blogging hiatus!):  I know it’s been almost two months, which is practically an eternity in the blogosphere.  I know we have a lot of catching up to do, and that it will be near impossible to really do that justice.  I have been lurking on my favorite blogs, but not commenting as much as I used to.  I guess you could say I’ve been taking a blog-cation of sorts.

But here I am, having tied up my work-related loose ends before being out of the office at a hearing tomorrow, and then up in Oregon for Thanksgiving.   I’m looking for something to do, and I’m thinking that I want to blog again.  I feel rusty, and I don’t really know where to start.

*Deep breath*  Diving right in, I suppose!

So last time you tuned in to the Single/Fabulous show, there were two promising guys on the horizon.  And for the past two months, there has been just one.  One guy who is, in a word, amazing.  Somehow, after all the heartaches that I have poured out to you, and after all the douchebaggery (sorry!  I love that word) I have endured from the male persuasion, and after all the first and second dates that went nowhere….somehow, when I least expected it, this guy virtually fell out of the sky and into my lap.  (Ok, so I met him at a friend’s party.  But it felt as unexpected as if he’d fallen out of the sky.  Even though we had met once before, he was totally off of my radar when we “re-met.”)  And our relationship is honestly exactly the kind of relationship I’ve been looking for.

I’ve been having sort of a quandary about the blog.  I haven’t wanted to write about him because I respect his privacy.  I haven’t wanted to tell him about the blog because I think he should learn about my past history from me directly, not from the blog.  And I have felt strange about the idea of keeping a secret blog from him because I don’t like the idea of keeping anything important a secret.  Besides, secrecy is not my strong suit.  I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, especially with people I care about.  And even if I made thre effort, inevitably at some point I would slip and say “In my blog, I wrote…”  and then the rest will be history.  Not to mention the more simple issue of time.  I just don’t have the hours that I used to devote to blogging each week anymore.  Anyway, I have not reached any real conclusions about those things…still thinking about it.

In the past I haven’t written about relationships so as not to jinx them, but in this case I’m not worried.  Even though it’s only been a couple of months, we’ve fallen head over heels in love.  Not in the all-consuming drama-filled angsty way of my past, but the lovely, happy, peaceful-yet-exciting way.  We’re spending a ton of time together, we’re meeting each others’ friends and families, we’re learning new things about each other every day, we’re making lots of plans.  He prompted my friend J. to say, “He doesn’t give off the tool/douchebag vibe.”  (Sad to say, none of the other guys I’ve dated in the past two years earned this endorsement.)  He even has the Noodles stamp of approval.  🙂 

I don’t even know how to explain how good it feels.  I’m just so, so happy.

Thank you, Universe!

  1. I’m happy to read the happiness!

    I was wondering what happened and was on the verge of sending an email to say hello.

    I hope you have a great (and stress-free) Thanksgiving!!

  2. Well, that was a nice little surprise to come across a post from you! I actually did a double take…

    So now, you obviously CAN’T keep writing on this little blog, you need a new one called inarelationshipfabulous or notsosinglefabulous or screwyoumatch.comImetaguyatafriendspartyfabulous

    Alright, I’m done. You’re still awesome because you say douchbaggery and you have a cat named Noodles.

    OOOHHHH!!! I just had a great idea! you could start a new blog talking about your relationship, but write everything from Noodle’s point of view! That way you can write anything without having to take the credit/blame for it… it’s all Noodles!

    Alright now I’m really done.

  3. I just smiled.

    P.S. If you’re not writing on your own blog, and you’re ever lurking on mine, feel free to say hi. I’d like periodic updates on what life is like on the other side of the wall, because it gives me hope that there is another side of the wall.

    You are proof that good things happen to good people.

  4. Somehow that’s where I figured you had gone. Congratulations on your good fortune.

  5. Happy for you!

  6. It’s so great to hear how happy you are! You deserve it! I hope you write about this relationship…I can’t help it, I’m totally intrigued! 🙂
