I have a boyfriend- I think.

I completed my first 5K run on Saturday morning. A lot of elderly people and small children may have passed me (both awkward for me), but I ran the entire time and that was my ultimate goal. My time was 36:25, which I feel is pretty respectable for a first time 5K’er. It was a lot of fun, and really fulfilling to meet a goal I had set for myself. It was especially fulfilling since this goal stemmed from my first awkward relationship post-divorce. I had been so consumed with my relationship with R that I had to think of a distraction from him, and running was it. The beautiful thing is that I don’t think about him all the time anymore, and didn’t think of him once on race day, even though he was one of the main reasons I was there.

I signed up for my next 5K as soon as I got home.


The next night D took me out to dinner and for a few drinks. I filled him in a little more on my history with my ex-husband, but only because he asked. I felt like I may have divulged a little too much information, but he just thanked me for being so honest.

Later, over drinks, I could tell that something was up, and asked D what was on his mind. He replied that he wanted to say something, but didn’t know if he should. I of course encouraged him to do so because there is nothing that irks me more than someone who says they are going to tell you something, then changes their mind and won’t. Anyways, he finally does tell me. He tells me that he doesn’t want to see anybody else- only me. I told him that I absolutely felt the same way. He wasn’t sure if he should have told me this, because he was worried it was too much. I assured him it was definitely not too much.

Now, I thought we were already sort of “there” since I knew from the beginning that I was the only girl D was dating, and we had a mutual agreement not to date around on each other. So this must mean something more. Like a declaration. Like we’re boyfriend and girlfriend.  Right? The best part is (and I cannot believe I am typing this, but I am) is that we still haven’t slept together. I know this is how relationships are traditionally supposed to progress, but I have never been a traditional kind of person. But it’s a welcome change of pace. Plus, it just gives me one more thing to look forward to.

    I hope that doesn’t mean you won’t be posting as much!

    • I hope not! I am finding my dating life less awkward/entertaining and more stable, so we’ll see what I can come up with. 🙂
