Love was the topic of conversation last night between DBF and me! The stinker waited until I said it first, but I had a feeling he felt the same as I did. We both wanted to say it before he left for Labor Day weekend at his parents 4 hours away, but we were both afraid to freak out the other one. I'd been feeling it for a week or two, but what really made me realize it was him going away for the weekend. He'd told me before that when he goes to his parents, he likes to "draft" behind semis to save gas. Of course, being a worry-wart like I am, all I can think of is DBF doing that and the sami making a quick stop and turning his Celica into a convertible. I told him that much, but didn't come right out and tell him I loved him. He told me that he loved spending time with me, but not he loved me.
Knowing that he's been divorced and feels like he failed at marriage, I was afraid I would scare him away by making him feel I was pushing for a commitment or it would be too soon for him. On Friday night, however, we had a important talk about some other things so I know that things were getting serious between us. Plus, he's already invited me to his parents farm in a couple weeks to meet them. Last night, I just couldn't wait any longer! It drove me nuts to talk to him every night that I didn't see him and not tell him "I love you" at the end of the phone call. So I just did it.
I've never felt so comfortable with anyone in my life! I've only been dating him for six weeks and I've only known him for ten weeks, but it feels like I've known him for years. I only wish Mom could have met him.....but at least she knew about him.
