So some stuff has changed since June 17th when I had to really talk to "the boy" (not ready for the word boyfriend) about how our relationship wasn't going in a direction I liked. Now two weeks later I can say, "Wow, look at him listen to what I had to say!" The very next night after our conversation we had a date. A real one where he had picked activities, I had time to put on that new sundress and cardigan that had yet to be worn, put on some make up, and have a good time. We had a wonderful evening out together and he saw how happy that made me, and how simple it truly is. Wednesday we went to dinner after work one night to a place down by the water, nothing fancy, but still nice to get out. Then this weekend we went to a minor league baseball game complete with fireworks after, and on sunday we spent the day in Annapolis with a mutual friend. Then we got take out chinese that night made a little pillow blanket couch on the floor and watched a movie together! What a week! I told him I don't expect the world, but I expected him to make time for me, up until that week, he'd been squeezing me in around all of his other activities. It was such a wonderful week. I'm so glad I talked to him when I did.
It's weird too because the very next week at work I bump into my ex-fiancÚ. I hadn't seen him since we broke up 2 years ago, okay I'll be honest.. he dumped me 2 years ago on July 18th. Then I ended up getting a job in Maryland and moving out here by him anyways, but i couldn't turn down the job. I think knowing this new relationship is heading in a good direction now made it a little less painful than it could have been. It still hurt though. He was so cold shoulder toward me like I didn't exist and he had no clue who i was. I thought i was going to vomit, but i got through it. and that night my guy and I had planned on going to a park or something. He knew I needed to get out of the apartment, so despite both of us having a crappy day we went to the city and ate dinner outside and I felt so much better.
However with all the eating out, my weight loss isn't going so well that's something I'm working on, but i'm glad emotionally I'm doing well and am enjoying my life and my summer!
