It feels crazy to actually write this, but I’m in love. Maybe for the first time. At least the first time it seems to be reciprocated. At 39, I feel a bit silly feeling excited every time I get a text or call from a certain person.
I lived with my previous boyfriend for almost 18 years but, unless it was very early on, I don’t remember feeling like I do now then. I do worry that our feelings are too strong and will wane with time. However, after just a couple months, that has not happened so far.
I can actually picture myself being with him for a very long time. He’s smart, funny, sexy, hard-working and a good role model for my son. What more could I ask for? I guess being a pessimistic person, I just don’t want to get too excited only to have something happen.
But for now, I think I’ll just hold on and enjoy the ride!
