True story: My parents were engaged to be married three weeks after they met. They married six months after that and have been happy together for 35 years.**

**Just for the record, I was born two years after they got married. No shotguns were present at their wedding!

My point in mentioning this? When it comes to relationships, there are no time lines. It’s important not to rush, but if everything just seems to click, there’s no reason to delay things just because you think you should. Y’all know how I feel about the shoulds. They’re confusing and just asking for trouble!

A and I are moving along at a pace we find comfortable. We are cognizant of making sure to take time to get to know each other in some respects, but in others we know what we want. For example, last night we had the “what are we talk”. It was the best “what are we talk” I’ve ever had! Even though it’s only been just over two weeks, we know we want to be together. So that’s what we are. Together. A couple. Boyfriend and girlfriend (and no, I’m not one of those women who will ever use the term ‘partner’. I don’t care how old I am!).

I feel awesome about taking this step with him. It’s so incredible how very right it feels.

Hmm…does this mean I can update my relationship status on Facebook?

    If I could do cartwheels, I’d be doing them!
