I think that because I have always put out the intention that she is the one who I want to be with, that there is a chance that we can be together. I got two therapist’s vitaes and saved them to a file that I’m making, which includes a contact who was recommended by one of my colleagues who is also my friend. The timing is bad though, because she is still trying to finalize that property division between her and her ex-partner, and continues to work around the clock. Dust really needs to settle for her before she can have a partnership and build something with her son as a family.
She had a date with a woman who got gamey and strange this summer. Sounds so familiar to me because I have dated for five-years and can’t even count the number of them that I have been on–many of which have yielded nothing–and I have been with two women for more long-term situations. I was with her for 8-months and was with my ex for much of two-years. However, I find it troubling that the commitment piece has not been mutual for me for large amounts of time given who I have chosen. This time around, I am hopeful that she and I can build a real commitment, which is based in passion and the desire for companionship with one person.
I can hold that I did make mistakes with her during the 8-months that we were together. I also think that when things get tough, I tend to be more committed to bouncing than the girl. I think, “Fuck this.” That is not the stuff of an ltr. I want to think, “I will stop at nothing to make this relationship work.”
We are going away for two nights. Given that neither of us are campers, I’m sure that it will be interesting to say the least, but I am excited to get to spend time with her in the mountains and be around her friends finally. I have met briefly many of them, but have not had time with them in typical conversation. I also just want to be outside with her and trek around. We have not gotten out of town together in 10-months. I can really sense where things had gone awry previously and where they should go in our future.
