The One Where She's No Longer Single


Warning: I might get mushy. Sorry, not sorry.


For as long as I can remember, I've always been the single friend. Also, for as long as I can remember, I have been happy about it. This recently changed.

I was always the girl who was happy being single, and never really longed for a 'relationship' like most of my friends. Sure, I thought chick flicks were cute - and I hoped that I would one day find someone that I'd have those cute and happy moments with - but I never really longed for it. Mainly because I think I was so comfortable being single.

Over the past couple of years I've been on plenty of dates - but they never really went anywhere. Either I was just not interested in the guy enough to make it 'official' or it was basically a chapter straight out of 'He's just not that into you'. Sometimes it sucked, but at the end of the day - I thoroughly enjoyed my space and having my status remain as 'single'. Obviously since I'm writing this post, you know I'm no longer single.

I started talking to him at the beginning of February - which was around the time that I was trying to heal from strep throat and having my wisdom teeth extracted. Because of my health complications, I wasn't able to hang out or go on dates - so we spent a lot of time just talking and getting to know each other... which I think know is what made me like him more. Our personalities clicked really well, and he knew exactly how to make me laugh... just by typing a few simple words.

By the time we finally had our first official date, we were already pretty into each other. Our first date lasted 9-10 hours, because neither of us were ready to say goodnight and go home. From there, it just kind of snowballed into us wanting to see each other and hangout all the time (ahhh gotta love the honeymoon phase). After a couple weeks of dating we both knew that we wanted to be official/exclusive/whatever you want to call it.. so we made it official, and here we are.

I could probably say a lot of mushy things, and be a complete girl for 5 minutes and share the cute details, but I'll spare you that - for now. I'll just leave you with this: he makes me very happy, he accepts me for who I am and doesn't try to change me, he can make me laugh (a lot), and he's probably the nicest guy I've ever dated.

This is Justin. You're going to be seeing a lot more of him around here.


For the record, we are not naked.

Faith, I'm so so so so happy for you! I just started dating someone a little over a month ago, and it's such a great feeling. As happy as I was being single and being myself, it's an even better feeling to have someone share my happiness and being able to be an "us". Mushy is okay, I accept, and I can't wait to see those.
