..... so the other night I did something drastic... I deleted my plenty of fish account. After having endured hilarious and sometimes damn right creepy conversations with men on there since August 2012, it began time to start a new chapter in my life. It was time to reel my line back in and place it in storage as I have finally met someone willing enough to put up with me on a long term basis and bagged myself a Toy Boy!
Now, those of you who know me will find this situation funny. I have always vowed that my next boyfriend would be older than me, have his own place and take care of me financially, but I guess in reality, men do not come with a check list. He has completely blind sided me and I just feel so alive with him. He makes me go all gooey inside and all the other romantic cliches you see in bad rom com movies.Maybe it is my barriers coming down in my old age but it has been a very long time since I have felt like this. Whilst in the past I may have thought these kind of feelings had resurfaced, I now know that they were just braxton hicks, getting me prepared for the time when I really and truly would feel utterly alive and back to the old me. I keep finding myself laughing at the simplest of thing or I will catch myself smiling thinking about something he has said or done. I know! I know! I am making myself feel a little sick by how romantically gooey I have become but I just can't help it. I blame the Toy Boy anyway. It's all his fault! But I'm glad of it at the same time.
Now whilst I am enjoying my rose tinted haze, I am completely aware that we are in the honeymoon stage of our relationship, where everything is sunshine, lollipops and blue skies , I am embracing this feeling and enjoying it nonetheless. One of the best things is that he gets on well with my family (although he loves a 'your mother' joke! He really does love the older ladies) and equally with the friends of mine he has met. He has even accepted with ease my close friendship with the Husband Larry, where other men in the past have not been able to accept it.
So for now I am enjoying the fun and flirty stage of our relationship. I am sure there will be crazy fights and passionate make up sessions to come (sorry, too much information I know, but I just couldn't help myself) but for now I guess we can only sit back and watch and see which path this whirlwind romance leads us down :)
I guess it is true what they say about having to kiss a few frogs before finding Prince Charming. So to all my single ladies out there, don't rush to be in a relationship, just sit back and relax and when you stop looking you will finally be able to see him. That's what happened with me anyway!
