Today is my 6year-iversary with Elliott. We will meet at the same time and location as our very first (match.com) blind date. We do it every year, even though it’s a restaurant we don’t frequent any longer. Then, a night at Chrysalis Inn, overlooking the water. That was the surprise, but he already guessed so it’s not a surprise anymore.
It’s hard to believe it’s been so long. The most awesome thing about Elliott though, is that neither of us have to be a certain role to each other. We get to change, grow, do new things, and it’s not threatening. Elliott is doing a ton of new stuff this year, in terms of personal growth and changing what he might want out of life. So am I. The way you know you’re with the right person? They support it, even if it’s NOT something you do together. Heh, funny how that can be sort of akin to polyamory, in that you are developing interests that are separate from each other. But I will always say that the #1 thing I hated about polyamory was schedule maintenance.
6 years, and I look at where we were when we met, and where we are now, and I’m staggered at what we’ve accomplished. I know I haven’t shared any of those accomplishments and changes, I haven’t been around here much in a long time. I needed time to heal from things. Because my personal life was so wrapped up into JG, it was hard to continue at the time. And for a long time, I had nothing to share with anyone, because I needed to keep it all for myself. If that makes sense.
Anyhow, I am looking forward to my 5:30 date tomorrow night with my dearest, darling love. Almost as much as I’m looking forward to the next 6 (or 60, if we get to live really long) years.
