Dear Lovely Single Pals,
I apologize if I’ve been annoying at all lately. I haven’t been myself. Well, I’ve been myself. But not the myself that I’m–or you–are used to. I’ve been the “dating someone….oh, now I’m in a relationship all of a sudden” version of myself. And I’m not used to this version. I’d forgotten that this version was available to me, honestly….after being so well-versed in the “single” version of myself for nearly six whole years.
To my horror–and perhaps even yours, my single friends–I have turned into a woman that misses her boyfriend when she hasn’t seen him in a day or two. I know! I’m that person now! It’s like it’s not enough that I’ve met a person I really like who really likes me…..I have to SEE HIM A LOT.
Also I want to apologize for something else I’m sure I’ve done in your presence recently. (And if I haven’t, I’m bound to, so go ahead and take this apology in advance, as well). You were probably telling me a really great story and after you finished talking, I greedily took over the conversation with some twitterpated story about how wonderful my guy is or–even more goobery–how wonderful he thinks I am…..
In addition, I should beseech your forgiveness, dear friends, for beginning more and more sentences with “We…..” Please know that this is as much of a surprise to me as it is to you. Also, know that I am not unaware of all of the times when you invite me to something, that I am more and more likely to ask if it’s okay if I bring a guest….. Don’t be afraid to lead into an invite by saying something like, “So we’re going to have a LADIES’ night….” I should still be able to take a hint.
I appreciate your patience with me while I’m updating to this new version. The rest of me has gone unchanged.
PS: Oh, but do know that I am really happy and that I’m not just so self-conscious about all of this stuff that I’m not able to enjoy the delight and excitement of new love. If you are unconvinced, I can tell you some stories. Like for example, the other night, he said the sweetest thing……..
