This quote is perfect for 2 reasons. One, it's accurate. Two, I've been binge watching Dawson's Creek for a couple of weeks now.
We may have only known each other for 8.5 months & we may not even have an official title but this describes Mr. Fireman. And the fact that we don't have an official title is exactly why I'm here (see rant tomorrow...)
Dear concerned friends & family,
Mr. Fireman & I may not have an official title but that's okay because:
-He is by far the best friend I have in Texas & is one of my best friends out of all of my friends.
-He let's me be me. I have never once felt the need to censor myself in any sort of way around him & yet he still accepts me for exactly who I am.
-Even without some official title he treats me better & cares about me (& shows it) more than most of the men in everyone else's relationships.
-Not only does he ask about my day he actually listens & tries to fix it if it's not a good day.
-Even if it's a random comment, he remembers. Even better, he ask about it/bring it up at a later date.
-He always makes me smile...even when I wanna be mad.
-He willingly acts like an idiot with me.
-He lets me cry & doesn't get weirded out when I do.
-He knows exactly how to & when to kiss me.
-He tells me his problems as well as the good things that are happening to him.
-I trust him more than I've ever trusted any other man before...and the same in reverse.
-When I get way too excited about something he laughs & gets excited with me.
-He lets me be random & spontaneous.
-Despite the fact that he has to sleep on his side he will hold me next to him until I've just about fallen asleep before letting go so that he can sleep too.
-He always makes sure that I'm taken care of...even when I don't think I need to be (like offering to drop me off and pick me up from work so I can get my car fixed despite the fact that we live 20 minutes apart & he also has a job)
I could go on & on as to why I'm okay with not having a title & not knowing what to tell people when they ask "exactly what are you two?" The answer? We're happy. We're content. We're letting things happen as they come.
I'm okay with it because despite not having an official relationship title, we have the type of relationship I want...
Will I be okay forever without knowing if it's going to end up somewhere serious such as moving in together, getting engaged, getting married, having a family? No. Someday I'll have to know if that is or isn't going to happen. But until then...
