I know I disappeared again. Forgive me. It’s been crazy couple of months at work travelling here and there but been good all the same. Things are going so great for my career at the moment, so as tired as I am I can’t complain. Life in general is really busy but really good actually, for both work and social life. A significant amount of my free time has become me and Mr time.
So yes there is a new man in my life. Was thinking of what I shall call him on here… Mr Big (how very Carrie Bradshaw of me lol he’s not like that Mr Big but the name is apt )
To be honest it’s all happened fast and come as a surprise to me but we have quickly become more serious fixtures in each other’s lives. I’ve met his parents andthen he met my whooole family – Mum, Dad, brother, Auntys, Uncles, Grandma the whole shabang lol at a family party. He loved them!
But to backtrack a bit; I’ve actually known Mr Big for a few years as we went to the same University and know a lot of the same people, him being a few years senior. To be honest I thought he was good looking but I found him and his friends really really annoying. I very much limited any interaction with eye rolling. Almost a year ago we crossed paths again at my house party but it was his friend who was on my case. However his friend had a girlfriend and thought I would not find out! Yh, that was quite funny when I asked if she would join us for our first date … lol anyway to add another complexity he had a drunken make out session with one of my friends during uni days. So when he stepped to me around the end of last year I was like this is one messy situation I’d rather not be part of. He really wanted me to get to know him, find out who he really is and that he was not like his friend, give him a chance.
I had no intention of taking him seriously I found it all very amusing. But I have been pleasantly surprised he is just not who I had previously judged him to be. After giving him such a hard time; He has shown me he is not who I thought he was but in an ironic twist of fate that he’s exactly what I said I want. Crazy huh? I mean sometimes I can see he is making a point to show me that I should take him seriously but most of the time it’s when he’s just being him and I get to know him more that I’m just blown away. Like if someone told me a few years ago that we’d be here I would not have believed them at all. And he probably wouldn’t have either as he says, back in the day I was always ‘extremely uninterested’ and never single lol, and he was young living the studentlife! The whole thing has just snuck up and surprised us both lol. We have also very much surprised our mutual friends but they are all really happy for us.
He makes me laugh all the time. He’s not threatened by my achievements or career he always wants to know more. He encourages and inspires me too, in the way he handles his business and career, he wants to learn French something I have been doing on and off for years – he is like well baby, we are going to do it together! We are both in similar places with our career. He’s book smart and street smart so we read the same things and we have crazy fun together too. He talks about future us and settling down. We have amazing chemistry, everything is so so so very hawt *fans self* He is definitely my type in looks! I really like him.
I guess you could say things have moved quickly between us, even so I am very much living in the moment and enjoying seeing how things go. He’s definitely been more expressive than I was. I suppose I’ve been somewhat guarded, I wasn’t really nervous about him though. Nope I was actually nervous about me, about getting too caught up again, become dependent on anyone, opening myself up. But I decided eff it! live fearlessly! (post to follow).
We both have a giggle about how life is funny and the interesting path we have taken to get to the point we are at now. Who would have guessed it ? But yeah basically to update you guys that’s my baby
