Dating, me, my life

One month later.

It’s been a whole month since my first date with The Scientist and things are still going great, he has such a good energy that I can be entirely myself around him.

I’m still excited about this as I was after date one. We’ve just spent another blissful weekend together. For the first time we didn’t really leave the house and it was great! All of the amazing sex aside I really enjoyed the moments we spent together (albeit naked) just talking and being silly.

I honestly feel so lucky and grateful that we’ve found each other.

7 facts about me, me, my life, dating · Uncategorized

7 facts about me. The boyfriend edition.

Ok so I said I would get The Scientist to do some facts for me. I get these are soppy and cute but I’m trying to embrace that. I’m going to copy and paste them as he wrote them from a message he sent me.

If you don’t like cringy couple stuff you should probably stop reading now….

1. Has a group of close friends and family of which she’s very protective of, and incredibly kind and considerate to, Hates everyone else.

Haha! Can’t argue with that!

2. Zombie survival plan would definitely involve zombie selfies and hoarding shoes when everyone else was hoarding food!

I love how both The Scientist and Xs facts about me say stuff about zombies! Maybe I talk about The Walking Dead too much?

3. Doesn’t realise how beautiful she is so uses an unnecessary amount of filters, seriously way too many filters!

As someone who can’t handle compliments this was hard for me to read but also made me melt…but come on dude, I know my face looks cuter with bunny ears!

4. Loves a good burger, especially if the burger contains pickles, loves pickles, even if the pickles aren’t contained in a burger.

Once again both sets of my facts are about gherkins! I do bloody love a gherkin though, and he’s right. I’m 99.9% of the time going to order a burger off the menu.

5. The following fact is X-rated and private. Really amazing at ………… . Like incredibly blow your mind amazing. The way she …….. is……. It can only be described as……………………………………………………………………………………………………

Your girls got skillz.

6. Can be very mean, demanding and a tease. But is really supporting and caring when it counts.

He’s basically nailed my personality in one fact.

7. The best, just literally the best.

Ahhhhhh you’re killing me!!

I’m so grateful he took the time to write these. Will be fun to look back on in 10 years time when we hate each other!….joking!

Facebook official.

Yesterday’s blogs were hard to write but onwards and upwards! By the title of this post you might be able to guess what’s happened, that all important landmark of everyone’s relationship…The Scientist and I are…drum roll please…FACEBOOK OFFICIAL! Once again I’m 50% cringed out and 50% happy! Just kidding I’m obviously 99.9% cringed out! 😉

He also told his parents about us…eek! I’m actually touched as he’s close to his parents so it obviously means he believes in this.

This is the only weekend we haven’t spent together and I miss him (yes I’ve become that soppy fucker!) I can’t wait to have all the se…I mean snuggles next weekend!

Me, my life

7 facts about Me.

I’ve seen this going around on blogs and twitter before so thought it would be fun to do. Seeing as I did something similar in my 31 day blog challenge I thought I would get X to write my facts for me….eek!

1. Owns 70x more pairs of shoes than plates.

T’is true! I had a genius idea of getting rid of all of my plates but one so I didn’t have to do the washing up. Kinda forgot about the part of having guests over. Also I have a lot of shoes!

2. Isn’t allowed energy drinks, ever.

They make me shimmy, get super sexual and weird. This also applies if I have any sugar/alcohol.

3. Needs a filter for her words not her pictures.

Yep. Someone needs to make that app pronto.

4. Would be the Negan of any future zombie apocalypse.

I asked him if this was a compliment and he replied ‘ I think you would build a society of underlings’ yeah pretty much.

5. Adds a gherkin to everything.

Because gherkins.

6. Likes bacon in milkshakes.

Because bacon.

7. Had never listened to Straight Outta Compton until literally sat in front of Ice Cube.

Erm…thanks for digging me out X! Yeah so that happened…X won a competition so we went to Twitter head quarters for a Q&A session with the cast members of Straight Outta Compton. I think everyone else was a mega fan but I mainly enjoyed the fact that Cube had the same trainers as me! I like shoes ok?!

I was thinking that I might ask the Scientist to do one of these for me as well. I think the facts might be slightly cuter….

New rules.

As we all know I’m super happy with The Scientist, he’s so lovely and everything is going great but there’s still that one guy, that one fucking guy that’s drags me down and makes me feel like shit. Let’s call him the Narcissist.

I can’t write this better than Dua Lipa so here it is….

1. Don’t pick up the phone you know he’s only calling because he’s drunk and alone.

Yep…every single time. I don’t know what it is about this guy but even though he makes me feel like absolute shit I still text him back, he’s always drunk so I worry about him it’s crazy that I even care about this guy but I’m beginning to think that alcohol plays no part in him being a dick. He’s just a dick.

2. Don’t let him in, you’ll have to kick him out again.

For the last 4 months we’ve been in this cycle of being nice for a few days, arguing, me not speaking to him and then him texting me and me being lured back in. It’s so weird, part of me hates him, part of me likes him, part of me wants to save him. It only takes one nice word from him and I forget how he can be and the cycle starts again. It always ends the same though, me feeling shit and him not caring or even believing he’s done something wrong. I’m not sure why out of the thousands of people I’ve spoken to, I let this guy get under my skin but it’s happened.

3. Don’t be his friend, you know you’re going to wake up in his bed in the morning.

Here’s the crazy part, I only ever fancied him for a really short time, we may have met on POF but I saw his true colours super early on and I’ve got prime steak at home so I’m hardly going to ruin that for a scabby cheese burger so there’s no chance of me ending up in his bed. I thought we could be friends though, he was dating someone and so was I so we were on the same level. In hindsight this was crazy, even though we’ve always had this mad chemistry and this magnetic pull he acts like Billy big balls but he’s always too scared to meet me. We’ve spoken for 4 months and there’s always a lame excuse why he can’t come. I think he loves hiding behind his phone because he can say anything he likes. It’s that annoying limbo which upsets me though. Least if we met and didn’t get on I could cut him out forever.I know that I have to cut him out forever but it gives me anxiety if we don’t talk, clearly I’m the ultimate glutton for punishment. He’s blocked off whatsapp so that’s a start right?

Dua would be so fucking disappointed in me.

Happiness.

So I’ve spent my third consecutive weekend with The Scientist and…oh god…. let’s not make a big deal out of this, but the apps are gone annnnnnd I have a boyfriend…sssh. I’m cringing hard right now but I’m also happy.

I have these wobbles thinking where’s the drama? Why isn’t there any tension? Why isn’t he a massive twat? Why am I not winding him up and pressing his buttons? I know it’s crazy but that’s the way relationships have always gone for me.

I like that we’re polar opposites, he’s the vicars son and I’m the spawn of Satan. I don’t recognise myself with him as I’m so sweet and cringey but for some reason it just fits, were so comfortable and never stop laughing but then there’s the whole other side where we can’t even make it through a tv programme without having amazing sex. He just makes me happy.

We had an awkward moment in the supermarket the other day, we high fived each other as we found our fave pasta and the sales assistant was watching and putting stock out was like ‘aww you’re in love!’ Erm….it’s the third date, steady on Susan! I don’t think I’ve ever blushed so hard in my life!

So yeah….I’m happy with him and it feels good. Unusual for a lone wolf like me but good.

Reflections 2017

It’s that time of the year again when I marvel at how quickly the year has gone and reflects on what’s happened dating wise.

I’m not going to sugar coat it but this year has been tough. I’ve been in situations out of my control and that I never thought I would be in. I’ve done things that I never thought I would have to do. I’ve had awful dates and met some even more awful people. I’ve cried, had anxiety but it’s ok, I got through it and I’m still here.

I’ve also had fun, been on some good dates, had some good sex and laughed and made connections.

I’m ending this year dating The Scientist. Who knows what’s going to happen there? At least he’s showed me that there are some genuinely nice people in this world.
