Alright, I’m probably over analyzing the situation. We were drinking (I was drunk, he was only buzzed). We were lying together in bed and kissing. Suddenly, he tells me, “I think I love you. I’m basically completely yours. What do I have to do make you mine for forever?”
I was actually pretty drunk and goofy at that point, so I just kissed him and made some joke about one day owning a goat or a cat, and making sure to always have good oral hygiene. (I’m anal retentive about my teeth.)
We haven’t mentioned it since and I’m pretty sure that he thinks that I don’t even remember it. We’ve only been together for a few months and I think that it didn’t help matters that we had been drinking. This was three days ago. I just don’t know what to think about this.
The truth of the matter is that I’m not that experienced with relationships. I’m 22, but am a late bloomer. I had one boyfriend in high school and that’s it. I mean, this guy is even the first person that I’ve ever been with. He’s someone that I care about a great deal and maybe one day can see myself ending up with, but this all seems too fast.
He’s 29 and also hasn’t “dated” all that much. He had one serious relationship that lasted 6 years and has a daughter with her, and a couple small ones. He isn’t really focused on her, but says he wants to be. The mom won’t let him.
He’s always been the one who seems more serious about us. I’ve met his parents and daughter, but he’s hasn’t met my father. He is the one that talks about one day getting married and having kids, making plans about spending a week together with him and his family at the end of the summer.
I started this relationship as a way of forgetting another guy that I had thought I was in love with (I realize now that it was only a crush and am completely over him, and my boyriend knows about him). I thought that it would be a more casual thing, but then I really ended up falling for my boyfriend. I really do care about him, more than I even initially thought I would. He’s really the sweetest guy I’ve ever known.
This all just seems to be going at breakneck speed.
(This is just another question that I’m probably sure doesn’t mean anything. He is still listed as single on facebook. That’s just that people don’t change those kind of things unless they’re really serious, right?)
