Made it 6 Months

S and I made it to the 6-month mark last week. It's really not all that long, but it's a milestone when dating.

I have met a lot of his family members at various family functions and they all were well behaved. LOL! I didn’t just say that, did I? ;-) At the last function a couple weeks ago, his Dad stumbled and then introduced me as S’s “friend” to the neighbor’s daughter. Huh? Talk about awkward. I’m more than a friend (and he knows that). S says he’s not sure why his Dad did that. S has briefly met most of my family. They’re all dysfunctional... what can I say? At least my Dad introduced S to my aunt as my BF, and didn’t miss a beat.

In some ways, the comfort level is such it feels like we’ve known each other for much longer than 6 months. In other ways, it still feels like 6 months because of uncertainties that crop up every now and then. Usually I am not an insecure person so when I get to feeling that way, it weirds me out. So far, we’ve been able to talk through these issues. Afterwards, I think to myself: What have I done? I really don’t want to come off like a needy insecure woman. So then that bothers me. *sigh* With all the changes going on, maybe I just want to know everything is OK. Dunno.

Much to my surprise, we haven’t had any big blowout arguments. Still waiting for the shoe to drop on that one – maybe that’s because I’m used to my ex’s temper flaring out of control over the dumbest things. IMO, S and I interact pretty well and enjoy each other’s company.

It's good to have someone to share your life with. I am guessing he doesn't read your blog???
I have been with my man (hubby) for 17 years now. We still have our ups and downs. He always says "it's cheaper to keep her" but he's just playing. We still like each other most of the time.

Congratulations on hitting the 6 month mark, that is a big milestone. I hope it continues to work out and your relationship grows. He certainly sounds like a keeper from what you've posted.
