I got out of a 1.5 year relationship last year and it wasn’t a terrible breakup but I found messages between him and this other girl, this being the 2nd time & things spiraled from there. I loved this guy, he was the only guy I saw myself settling down with, my father passed away in January (2012) and he was there for me through it all and met my father which meant a lot. After the breakup, I was devastated, as everyone usually is. I went out on a few dates here and there and was even talking to this guy for a while but I still only thought about my ex. Just recently (recently as in this week) I went out on a date with this guy and he is amazing, I was nervous at first but after about 10 minutes or so the nerves settled and the conversation flowed and it felt good. While leaving the restaurant and walking to the car he asked me out for a 2nd date the next night and I said yes. So we had our 2nd date, I went to his place and we talked the entire time, we were laughing and joking and having a good time and I can honestly say it was the 1st time I hadn’t thought of my ex. I know it is early, and who knows what will come out of this but I want to hope that it will be something good. He has a good head on his shoulders, owns his own business, has goals and dreams and is a sweetheart. I have only told one person about the date because I am afraid to say anything else in fear that I will “jinx” how things are going. We talk everyday and it just comes natural..to have conversation come naturally after meeting a couple times feels nice. I hope this guy turns out to be someone I can trust and hopefully a relationship can come from it.
