Eve has turned out to be even more caring, fun, and adventurous than I could have possibly imagined.
Although we've had a couple of disagreements over the past few months, they've been pretty mild. In fact, most of the time, we do really well together. And that seems to be a recurring theme: "togetherness".
She's dropped some no-so-subtle-hints about the two of us and a possible future together. Normally, this is where I would make my exit, but ...
I've noticed that I really miss her when she's not around. I find myself wishing we shared a house, so I could snuggle with her all night, (not just particular nights, but every night). Our kids make comments about how we are so good for each other, so much happier together, and they're right (I can feel it).
Last month, we sat on an outdoor swing and talked about the ranch that I want to own someday. She was filling in the details, talking about how I would do this, and she would do that, and how wonderful it would be. She's good at helping me define my dreams.
A couple of weeks ago, my son made a comment about the two of us sitting in front of the television, watching one of my (our) favorite reality shows. "That's a sign" he said, and the two of us couldn't help but laugh. He's right.
I've talked with my closest friends and family, and they all agree - this woman is good for me, and they can picture us being together for a long time. We make a good team. We're a lot alike. She accepts me the way that I am (the good, the bad, and the ugly). Being around her feels natural and right.
So, I'm faced with a decision: I can stay on my current path, and die a happy bachelor, or I can jump into something that makes no sense from a logical standpoint, but feels better than anything I've known before. Happiness, it seems, is greatly amplified, when you find the right person to be with.
Yep, I think this could work.
