Guess what I get for shooting my mouth off in that last post?
You’re right, a new girlfriend… the same one I was not being very nice about…
She’s not pushing things, just making it clear what she wants out of this when we get there. I’m trying to wrap my brain around it, and doing an okay job. At least this isn’t like ALL those other relationships, where I was all into them before they could breathe. Maybe there is just enough of a lack of “spark” that we can work our way into it slowly. Gee, that WOULD be different, wouldn’t it?
At the present time, most of her clothes are in my closet… and she is sleeping at Myra’s across the hall. I haven’t told her she CAN’T sleep here, she just made that decision.
Let me back up a bit. For New Year’s Eve, Myra’s boyfriend was over, so Rhonda was supposed to sleep on my couch. We went outside to watch the fireworks at midnight, and, because it was the thing to do, kissed when they were done. When we came back inside, I went to lay down for a bit, and she came in with me… fully clothed. I won’t say what happened, but she thought I was rejecting her for being too fat (her words). Needless to say, if y’all have paid any attention to my doings of the past, that wasn’t it. OK, getting into TMI Land. The next day she decided that we were “boyfriend and firlfriend” and told Myra that, and little else. By the way, she DID sleep on the couch that night, by herself and by her own choice, and has not slept over here since (yet). But the signs are there (body wash in the bathroom, clothes in my closet…)
This is totally new territory for me. She did go to her doctor and ask her to reduce the meds she is taking… the doctor responded by UPPING one of them. She has said she will look for another doctor. How quickly and decisively she does that will say something about whether we have a future.
But it is no longer a “That Will Not Happen” thing between us. I just don’t know what is GOING to happen.
And yeah, she is a Baptist… but says she does not intend to either judge or change me.
