Perhaps one of the better known acronyms for our generation. F.B.O.

Well, folks, I'm here to announce that MP and I are "official". FaceBook Official. haha.
{via} altho that looks like I'm going from in a relationship to single...but you get the idea
I'm super happy! MP was so sweet and patient with me during all of this, and never once forced the issue. So how did it happen? Here's the scoop: When we were out one night grabbing a drink after dinner, we were talking and he started telling me how much he liked me (he does this quite often and I enjoy every second of it hehe) and I, in turn, told him how much I liked him....and, since I had been thinking it for a while, I said "So...does that mean I should call you my boyfriend?" and he got this HUGE smile on his face (it was pretty cute), and goes "If that's what you want, yes!" and I said "It's what I want" and he grinned even bigger (which I wasn't sure was possible haha), and then hugged me super tight and gave me a kiss. (I'm smiling like an idiot right now while I type this...feel free to gag/vom right now...I'll totally allow it.)

So, a couple days later we made it "Facebook Official." I think the main thing holding me back from letting this happen (since we had basically been acting like bf/gf already) was my internal monologue telling me "You shouldn't be ready yet," and thinking about what people would think when, so soon after my other relationship, I'm in another one. But, the more I was around MP the less that those things mattered and I got past it in my head. After all, no one else is in the relationship. It's me and him. And since it felt right, and I didn't rush into it (took my time to make sure I was doing things for the right reasons), it feels good. I'm 100% happy.

I definitely look back at my previous relationships, including the recent one, and (like everyone said, and I knew deep down) I realize why things didn't work out. I'm with someone who tells me all the time how special I am, how much he likes me, and the things he's looking forward to in the future with me. He makes plans, and isn't afraid of "the future." And he's already assured me that his family will love me (and I'm pretty sure my parents will love him too). It just feels natural...nothing is forced, and I don't spend the majority (or any part) of my day worrying about things. I know that it's early on, but right now, I'm happy and I'm excited about what's to come!

Ok, I am done being sappy and all girlie (maybe). We'll return to our regularly scheduled (hopefully non-vom inducing) posts tomorrow! :)

(But, a special thank you to all of my friends, bloggie friends and otherwise, who sent encouraging and positive words/thoughts through everything. It really means a lot to me!)
