Mr. Smiley and I have been spending a lot of time together. We’ve also been going around the idea of getting more serious. We would bring it up, not come to any conclusion, and then get distracted by other things. But yesterday we had time to spend in the car together, and what else can you do but talk?
The conclusion, finally, was that we would focus on this relationship as the main one. That means we no longer consider ourselves “single” – no more dating other people and no more sex with other people.
I feel good about this. Despite the fact that he’s leaving for 4 months in December I don’t think I’m wasting time with him, even if nothing long-term comes of it. I enjoy his company, the sex is amazing, and I’d rather spend as much time with him as possible before he leaves, rather than be distracted by other men.
So having said that, no more “Mr. Smiley” – I will refer to him as A.
This will be quite a change from the past few months but you only live once! And actually it might be nice to slow down a bit.
