Well, it happened.
I fell in love.
I feel the rush of a new relationship. It feels great. It feels wonderful. It feels fulfilling. It feels wholesome. Time will tell if these emotions will last, and looming distance and immigration will throw some challenges our way, but I have a good feeling about this one. A really good feeling.
I’m taking this chance to (a) not repeat past mistakes, and (b) do the things I’ve always wanted to do with a real partner – take long walks, dance under the moonlight, write a journal, write letters, make small talk, have deep conversations, discuss the world; become a better person, without sacrificing who I am.
