Ive been dating with
It doesn't matter how many wonderful friends and family (and readers) I have who remind me of why it'll work out when I "least expect it" or "when the time is right"; I won't believe they're telling the truth until I meet you.
I've been on dates when men who ask if I'll spread my legs under the table so they can look under ... I went on six incredible dates with a guy, only to tell me he wasn't interested in "anything serious." And then he started dating some other girl a few weeks later.
Mainly because I've put them through tumultuous ups-and-downs over the past handful of years.
I've hung out with guys before, but no one has ever said "Hey, would you like to go out with me on friday night? How unusual is it to be 18, and to never have never gone on a date?
And then I realized that I had never been asked on a date!
For my 23rd birthday, my then-boyfriend woke me up at 1 AM, drunk and excited to give me my "amazing birthday present": a light-up bottle of Vodka that flashed 'Happy birthday, Lindsay' that he got (for free) from an event he attended.
It was one of the last straws that broke up our year-and-a-half relationship, and a few days later I ended things.
I care for them and do housework while working as a part-time care worker. He understands my family situation and helps in supporting my grandparents as much as he can.
