Feel It All

I'm still trying to get over the fact that NotHarry has liked me for three years. I don't ever remember having a fondness for someone so long... well except for Matt Damon. Recently, we've been inseperable. This week has been really trying for me both mentally and physically, and he has been my rock.
I spent most of the weekend at the vet with my ailing dog and soon NotHarry would stop asking if I wanted him to be there and just take off work early and show up at my house 30 minutes before the appointment.
He was there when the vet told us the bad news and he was also there to talk to my mom on the phone and tell her the bad news because I was too choked up.
He was there when my family made the decision to put my dog to sleep.
He was there to keep my spirits up and kept me busy for the remainder of the week when I was too upset to go to work.

It's so weird that the second I stop looking for someone, it happens. He comes out of the woodwork and all of a sudden, I'm content and pleased and everything's running so smoothly.

My parents like him too, which is a HUGE thing. Usually, my dad just makes nicknames up for all of my guy friends and makes fun of them mercilessly. Instead, at dinner they talk about Germany and animals and history and dad tells me that we need to "fatten him up" and that "he seems to really fit in with you." My mom already wants him to meet our family in Wisconsin. It's so surreal.

Wow. that is surreal. I have no idea what that's like and I've given up looking for someone plenty of times.

I love it!!!!!!! I found my boyfriend when I stopped looking too. Well, he found me - but whatever - It's working and it's nice and easy and my parents like him too. Perfect!

Fantastic! I'm so glad that you found somebody like that - finally! You totally deserve it, and I hope things work out for you :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog! Having gone thru my own touch & go experience with our dog this summer, I can only imagine.

It's fantastic tho, that you have this new guy to be there for you. It says a lot. With something closing, another opens...isn't that what they say?!??

I'm so sorry about your pup. It's so hard to deal with, and unless you've ever had a special bond with an animal, it's hard to understand. I am so glad you've had someone like him to lean on and help you through this. It's not easy.

Good luck with NotHarry! I have heard of so many people finding someone when they least expect it, and everything becomes easier. Does it really? It seems too good to be true! Anyways, keep writing :)
