… the words “boyfriend” and “relationship” are sitting uneasily with me at the moment; I am reluctant to use either of them in conversation about, er “this”.
We’ve agreed not to see anyone else and so I suppose you could say we were committed; however, even writing that word gives me slight pause.
Perhaps this is because I don’t feel like i’ve ever had a “proper” boyfriend or relationship before i.e. one that wasn’t focused on the needs of the other person? An *actual* partnership. Or maybe it’s because for all my giddy excitement and “adorable”-ness, we’ve known each other for a week and we’re not actually on the same continent. That’ll probably be it.
