Girlfriend Update: One Month
Saturday, 2005 September 17 - 9:39 am
And all's well.

Today is my one month anniversary of dating Amy.

Things are great. I mean, better than I thought it could be. In a way, every day is still like a first date for us: it's exciting and interesting and fun. But on the other hand, we're terribly comfortable with each other too. It's really the best of both worlds.

You have to understand that for me, a lot of dating relationships have started to fizzle out at this point. After a month, sometimes you start to realize that the person you're dating isn't quite what you thought initially. Or, some idiosyncrasy arises that you just can't handle. Or maybe, it's just that one person wants to move at one pace, and the other person wants to move at another, and the disparity starts to put pressure on the relationship.

So the fact that none of those things has happened with Amy, I take to be a very good sign.

We went out to eat at Five Star (yum) last night, then went to see "Camelot" at the North Carolina Theater, with Debby Boone as Guinevere. The production was, um, mostly dreadful. I mean, it's not great material to work with anyway, and the producers and director certainly didn't help by throwing in a dull set design and static choreography. Plus, the show needs to be shortened by about 45 minutes. But Amy and I still managed to have fun, mostly by whispering things to each other like "It's only a model" or "I have to push the pram-a-lot".

And that's the thing. We always have fun. It's unnatural. It's funny-strange and funny-ha-ha at the same time. I don't get it. But I'm not going to question it. Maybe this phase won't last forever, but while it's here, I'm going to treasure it.

It /can/ last forever. Well, okay, at least 8 years and counting.
