As previously mentioned, I've been falling in love recently. As not previously mentioned here, the (un)lucky person in question is amanda. According to people who know us both and move in the same social circle, this has been on the cards for ages, and it's about time that we both got around to realising it. kamara referred to "GIANT FLASHING LIGHTS OF OBVIOUSNESS". I'm always the last to know everything.
But yes. Not single any more. I'm sorry, everyone who's been harbouring a secret crush on me, but you've all missed your chance. I was actually perfectly content with being single, and wasn't looking for a relationship at all, but have just stumbled into this one. I'm very happy that I have done, though. To me, it sort of feels as if it's all happened very quickly and come out of nowhere, but that's probably just because I'm completely oblivious.
Things are still fairly tentative, I guess. We've not met in person, yet (we know each other from teh intarwebs, and have also spoken on the phone). There's still a whole lot we don't know about each other that we have to learn. We need to figure out how we're going to deal with the distance (she's in Aberdeen and I'm in Lancaster; that's about 300 miles). And so on and so forth.
I guess I shouldn't be getting too excited at this stage, but honestly, I can't help it. I just have such a good feeling about this. And yes, I know, I know. New relationship energy and all that, but this feels like more than that. We feel so very right together, so compatible. I can't really put it into words. And yes, you're all welcome to giggle at me for being naive, girly and in love now. I don't care; I'm in love and it's fantastic.
So there we have it. New girlfriend. And I love her very very much. Yay.
