Especially for my boyfriend mainly because he puts up with me. Anyone who knows me understands I’m annoying, loud and often can’t shut up–and those are my good qualities. So as a special thank you for making it seem so effortless — I think he runs off to the bathroom to do tequila shots– I asked him out on a special date this past Wednesday.
It was very romantic–they way I pulled out the charm wagon!
Nando: Wanna do something tomorrow?
Nando: Don’t get too excited; we’re still on a budget so there will be no magic.
See, I can pull “charm” off when I want. Date night was all set except for one minor hitch, I forgot I was supposed to meet up with an EX that night because he’s been asking for social media tips. As I got dressed for the evening, I put on my sexy new undies from the MensUnderwearStore.com and felt an immediate surge of hotness course through my overweight Mexican body. I ran out the door and I knew something special was going to happen.
I met the EX before my date and he questioned every twitter tip I had and retorted the blog advice I handed out and before I knew it, my time with the EX ran into and overlapped into my date night with my boyfriend. That’s when I got the text, “Where are you?” I think everyone in a relationship feels a bit nervous of meeting your current boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s EX and without any notice–the time came–and the two met. I gave him directions to where we were.
Nando: No, you idiot, that’s not how you approach twitter, as a newbie, you don’t do it like that.
Ex: Wow, I wasn’t aware Twitter was so conservative.
Nando: It’s not about being conservative, it’s about being polite, respectful and fun–you douche.
The boyfriend walked into the cafe, found us and sat down next to me. It was weird. They made eye contact and for once, I wish I didn’t know each one so well, I knew what they were thinking. But, the tutoring session was over and it was time to start my special evening. The past few weeks, we’ve been busy. I have been caught up in my book, blogging, and enjoying the fact that I’m the official Gay BFF over at TheCollegeCrush but it also comes with a whole new responsibility. And the boyfriend’s been dealing with huge changes at work, his new love of photography and like I said before, me. This night was really important, just me, my boyfriend, my Whittall & Shon Trim Boxers and…the EX?
Ex: Guys, I’m famished. How about we grab a bite?
I spent date night with two guys that had nothing in common except for me. It was awkward. But after a few lychee martinis and the traditional “sharing of a calamari appetizer” among the gays–things progressed. As we parted and said our goodbye to my Ex–and he walked towards the train, the boyfriend and I approached the corner and he turned to me.
Boyfriend: Its been 8 months.
Nando: I know.
Boyfriend: Remember when you first told me you were a dating/sex/relationship blogger; I thought your purpose for dating me was for research?
Nando: And remember when I told you no amount of research would ever make me do Mexican on Mexican, so it must be genuine?
Boyfriend: I think we have a good thing here. You?
Nando: I do. It feels grown up. Whatever that means.
Boyfriend: Let’s move in together, officially.
We continued to walk on that chilly New York night; hand in hand, and as I genuinely felt the rush of couple-hood take over me, I turned to him and said, “Get me my own blogging space in our new place, and you got yourself a deal!” (And just for the record, just the two us are moving in) And as we rode home, something felt different; a good different, an official different.
