I’m grinning from ear to ear, and really just want to share with somebody.
A guy I’ve been seeing casually since mid-May has made it clear he’s not looking for a relationship, that he really enjoys the time we spend together but is willing to back off if I want to pursue something more serious with another man. I’ve had a few prospects, have been on a few dates, but nothing’s come of it so far. So we continue to spend time together once or twice a week.
Yesterday I went over to his place mid-afternoon, and after a few hours of talking/watching a movie he decided he was hungry. Rather than send me home he asked what I’d like to have for dinner, and proceeded to turn on some music and cook up a spread.
While dinner was in the oven he danced me around the kitchen and living room. Just before we ate he disappeared, and came back with a bottle of wine he’d apparently been waiting for an excuse to open. After dinner we washed dishes, chatted, and made homemade chocolate chip cookies. As we were both getting tired, he sent me home with a kiss.
This was completely spontaneous, and not something he’s done before; I’m trying not to read anything into it. I’m not telling my friends yet because they think him not wanting a relationship is a deal-breaker, and honestly I don’t care. I’m just enjoying the moment and wanted to share my happiness.
