Ginger’s Got A Boyfriend

First, let me just say SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! (In the words of the fabulous Penelope).  Okay, now that that’s out of the way, I have something so very wonderful to tell you.  Are you listening?  Are you reaaaaally listening?  Good.  I love it when you give me your undivided attention.

So, you know that yesterday I spent most of the day in bed with my Wonder Twin, and it was beyond wonderful.  You also know that I love him and have for a while, but that we weren’t specifically a couple.  I have been calling him my non-boyfriend for a while because of this.  I even told him last week that for a non-boyfriend, he is the best boyfriend I’ve ever had.  He’s sweet and kind, and not just when someone’s looking.  He’s very comforting to me, whether we are just talking through IM or text, or curled up on the couch laughing at a movie.  He is such a great daddy, and one of the most adorable things about him…he has his daughter’s drawings pinned up all over the walls in his bedroom, and even has a favorite.  Did you say “aww” just now?  Thought so. 

Well, last night we were texting and he asked what I was up to.  I told him I was goofing off online and missing my non-boyfriend.  Turns out the “non” part was up for discussion.  I was shocked, but asked what had changed.  He said that he didn’t want to be with anyone else, and that had become abundantly clear to him while we were together yesterday.  He said that he saw how much I loved him, and wasn’t afraid anymore.  Time for another “aww”… I’ll wait.  I was beyond thrilled by this revalation, as you can imagine.  Our relationship status was made official this morning when he asked me if I would be his girlfriend.  DUH!  So, Ginger’s got herself a boyfriend.  A real, official, totally amazing boyfriend.

I had already decided last week to tell the Fireman that I couldn’t have a physical relationship with him.  There was no way I could handle that when I was in love with WT.  Now the discussion had to change to asking whether we could go back to just being friends again.  It went very well, considering it was the first time I had ever had to break things off with someone, no matter how casual it was.  I told him that I had to see where things were going with WT without complicating things further, but that I did still want to know him as a friend.  I tried to make it clear that it had nothing to do with him in any way.  If I hadn’t found my Wonder Twin (see also:  possible soul twin), I would have been all over this guy.  I felt like a jerk for it anyhow.  He responded well, as I knew he would.  He admitted that he had very strong feelings for me (I knew this, which was why I felt so guilty), but that he would be my friend if that’s what I wanted.  Once that was done, I felt relieved.

I am so excited right now.  Excited for today, excited for now, excited for us.
