Mum is the word on ITSam

I feel like I should write a big post about how much I really, really like, adore, like, maybe even L-Word (not, as Scott Pilgrim says, "lesbians" but the other L -Word) the new ITSam. But I'm afraid to jinx it. I'm afraid to say much because then it could go drastically wrong. I'm sort of afraid that if I sing his praises he'll turn into an asshole. Or the other shoe will drop. Or something like that.

He's really nice. He's polite, fun, charming, funny... He's kind, family oriented, romantic, sweet, and just a good person. You know when you meet someone in this world and you're struck by what a "good person" they are? He's one of those people. Everyone I know who knows him (not through me but before he and I met) says he a really good guy. All of his family that I've met are "good people". My friends and family who've met him think he's a good guy.

Dating a guy my age is different. I've dated younger men for lots of years so this is different. I'm not I can specifically say WHAT is different but it just is; and I don't mean in a bad way. Dating someone I went to high school with is also different; he recalls high school much more clearly than I do, so it's like we didn't attend the same school since I don't remember anyone or anything.

He told me on our second or third date that he's a guy who likes to be married, prefers to be married. He doesn't like dating but will date in order to find the right person. This is an interesting mind set. Maybe it falls under the category of dating a guy closer to my age since most younger men don't want to get married. He knows what he wants, won't play games, throws it out there. Interesting...

We spend most every minute outside of work together. We just chill out with his folks or with my dad. We hang with Mac or Jack (his son). We play board games and watch DVDs. We just walk around Wal-Mart or go to the mall. We tried on engagement rings. We clean out the car, run errands, and he helped me fold laundry. He fixed Mac's PS3 and operated on my computer. We go to Starbucks and book stores, we eat, and we TALK. We talk all the time- about everything.

So yeah... it's all good. Again, a bit closed mouthed because I'm worried about jinxing this. So, yeah, I would say it's good.

He sounds like the second-to-last perfect man in the world, since I got the last perfect one. :) I hope things continue to go well. I'll dance at your......

How lovely. You sound happy. Just go on as you are and don't think about it too much x

You tried on engagement rings?!? Ok, you and I really need a long phone session. I'm missing all the good stuff. I liked him when we met and the thing I noticed about you was that you were glowing. That's a good thing. Just take it as it comes.

So happy for you! You deserve this more than anyone I know. {{doing a happy dance for you}}

If it makes a difference, I think he fits into our family well. He and his son both seem comfortable when visiting my house. You seem to fit into his family, too. I wish the best for YOU! Whatever makes you happy, is good enough for me. I, too, noticed the "glow."

I think it is great that you found someone you click with. It is so difficult to do nowadays, so just sit back and enjoy it. I'm sure ITSam is doing just that. :)

Bragger- he is a pretty good one! I hope you'll be dancing at my ........

Eng writer- thanks!

Curley- I thought I would just toss that in there and see if anyone was paying attention. heehee... yup, a pretty pink sapphire princess cut solitaire in a Tiffany setting, 1 karat. We were just looking. My ring finger's a size 7.

Honey- thanks so much. it feels nice but scares the shit outta me at the same time!

JE- thanks. you and Curley and the glow. maybe I just had too much fish with mercury in it or something... lol.

Evil P- it's strange. good but still strange.

I so love how you snuck in, "We tried on engagement rings." Can tell you SOO SOO wanted to get the in there but didn't want it to be obvious ;) So happy you have found someone that makes you "glow". When it's right it's right and there is no denying it :) Good luck!
