Im sitting on my mums laptop, In 38 degrees (Celsius). Appreciating the fact that I am sitting alone in my loungeroom. The story here is last night I stayed at a friends house. It was a different experience.
I have known this man for 5 years now, actually seeing each other once a year at a big church camp. He felt strangely comfortable right away, just gave off trustworthy vibes or something. I rarely trust people with the big stuff that is important to me, but strait away we were talking for hours on end about the stuff that mattered, and I felt safe being venerable in his presence.
Now Im 20 and hes turning 22 (in 3 days) and we have caught up twice in the last month. The first time was because he announced he had a day off on facebook and I said I was also free, So we caught up and talked for pretty much the entire 9 hours he was here. Sat down to dinner with the parents, he got the questions (the typical my daughter has a boy to dinner questions about siblings, family, work).
So after That I messaged him on facebook.
It was lovely to catch up with you the other week.
I feel really comfortable talking to you.
It usually takes me a lot longer to trust people enough to talk about life stuff without feeling worried.
I really enjoy spending time with you. hope to catch up again soon.
I was almost too chicken to send it and revised it about a million times before sending it. So that being sent, I got a reply saying when he was free via facebook and a couple of days got a text asking if I would go and stay at his house for a night (neatly stating the fact that his parents would be around at all times). I was slightly conflicted at this point because I know I have trouble sleeping anywhere that is not my bed, So I asked my mother,
I know I don't need to ask for permission but would you be happy with me going and staying, she gave me a he is a lovely conservative christian guy , but its your decision answer. So when he called to confirm I went with the first word that came which was yes.
So thats where I was last night, hanging out with him, his little brother, mother, father and best friend. we watched a disney movie "the reluctant dragon". And generally getting to know him and his family. the strangest part of the night was sharing the sink while we were cleaning our teeth.
Now we have both spent time in each others natural habitat. so we have both seen where we have come from. Now I like this guy, I like his family, I trust him a lot. I am not the best at reading peoples intentions and having a slight social thing he has trouble reading people too.
I like him as a friend who I would love to get to know more, problem I don't drive so he has to come to me, (an hours drive), and in 14 days he goes back to working 6 days a week. We are catching up again on Sunday morning, I m going to his church.
I need to just go with the flow, give it time as only that will allow us the time to get to know each other! ... he makes sooo happy, I care so much about what he thinks and can't help it.... he matters more to me than I would willingly admit.
