I had a great weekend, and the boyfriend is still as great as ever!
Do you ever feel like you have to babysit your significant other? I've felt that so many times before. I'll go to a party with a boyfriend, and I'll keep an eye on him the whole time, checking to see how he's doing, if he's talking to people, if he looks comfortable, and I'll periodically make sure I spend time with him because I'm afraid to leave him alone for too long. I'm not sure what I've been worried about happening exactly, but I guess I've just felt in the past that Boyfriend X was nervous, uncomfortable, unable to hold his own, or needy. It's always felt like an obligation.
Not so with this one. FlyBoy can talk to anyone, can have fun anywhere and doesn't need supervision. When I did talk to him or sit next to him, it was because I wanted to. Because I missed holding his hand or hearing his laugh.
Friday night, we had dinner with a few of my friends. With this group, we all know each other very well so that can intimidating. He jumped right in, though! It was so easy, like everything with him.
Saturday, we were busy hopping around visiting people he didn't know. Again, he was great. Comfortable, charming and happy. I couldn't ask for more. And Saturday night, we all went out dancing. He's a great dancer, and by Saturday night, I could tell he was totally comfortable with my friends and that he really liked them. That made me happy. My friends and his friends are totally different types - when we got home last night, he said they were like night and day - so I was nervous that he wouldn't feel comfortable or would be a bit taken aback by them. Luckily, he loved them and really enjoyed himself.
All in all, this wonderful boyfriend is still wonderful. I'm amazed. I told him last night I thought he was too good to be true. He laughed and said I'd better believe it. He really seems too good to be true, though. I am one lucky gal.
And thanks, bloggy friends, for all your support and for being so darn happy for me. You guys are the greatest!
