Wow, I have not been to this site in a LONG time. Not that I was super active or anything, but I used to like to read everyone's journals and gain some perspective on life. So anyway! I've been in an absolutely amazing relationship for almost a year now. It completely shocked me because for once I was content with my life, and not on the hunt for someone to keep me warm at night. Then all of a sudden one of my friends and I made out one night and again and again, then almost eight months after that first time, we finally figured our shit out and took the plunge together! It was hard to work all of our feelings out, but I'm so thankful for all of that because she is the most important person in my life. We've had some bumps along the way, but what relationship doesn't? I love her, and we talk about the future and I actually believe it. We'll be graduating from college in the Spring and the plan is to get a place and settle down for a bit! I still can't believe how damn lucky I got. Every day I look at her and smile because she's so beautiful and perfect. We still haven't told our parents yet, though, so that will be the next step before we move in together, hopefully. Love is grand. If anyone doesn't believe it will ever happen to them, hang in there, there's someone out there for you! Before my girlfriend and I began dating, she was dead set on her "straightness." Even though we were constantly hooking up and cuddling.. Hmm. Anyway, sometimes people are just scared. So don't give up! I can't even imagine where I would be if I would've believed her and tried to move on.
