I’ve got the enry, got it bad.
That is, I’ve got New Relationship Energy, going with my new girlfriend, MJ.
I could (oh heck I am) gush to you about how she’s beautiful, smart, witty, and soooo sexual. All true. But the thing I most appreciate about her is that we are firmly oriented toward one another.
I feel like she’s this fantastic book I can’t put down, and just need to stay up reading. She’s told me repeatedly she feels the same way about me. It’s this positive feedback loop of mutual admiration and exploration. And, for the skeptical among you, it’s not all bubbles and sunshine. We explore our ouchy places, ways we’ve been hurt before, ways we have hurt others. We are doing the deep dive.
And each and every time growing closer and getting happier about it. What we’re doing feels like the loving opposite of the scene from How to Train Your Dragon where Hiccup’s dad asks him “Can you just stop doing... this?” To which Hiccup replies, “YOU JUST POINTED TO ALL OF ME!”
We keep pointing to all of each other and saying how much we love it.
