I suddenly find myself in what's often referred to as a relationship (as defined above). I've heard of them. I've often observed them. Now it seems I'm in one! With someone who wants to be in one with me and no one else! And we go out! And we watch TV! And we meet each other's friends and family! And we talk and laugh! And we laugh some more! And we make plans ahead of time! And we ask how each others' days have been! And I'm not scared to tell you his name or that if he reads this blog he'll run screaming and never call me again. His name is Charles! or Chuck! He's a heck of a pool player! He can cook! He's artsy like me, and we get each other's movie references (even most of the obscure ones), and we sing and dance!
I need to write Match.com a thank you note! I have a happy headache and my exclamation key is going to fly off from overuse!
