This May Come As A Surprise...

Last week was a rough week for Klein. He hadn’t been dealing with his mother’s illness very well. We talked a few times during the week, and one night he came back to DC to handle some stuff. He spent the night and we talked and played hokey pokey. He got up and left and called me later to tell me about her condition. Me being the exceptionally great person that I am (ok...well at least I think I am), I offered to drive 4 hours to a) support him and b) meet his mom, since she’s been asking him when she was going to meet me.

He was shocked, floored & amazed. He told me how much that meant to him and laid on the compliments and praises the rest of the convo.

I really didn’t know what to expect. You know, I mean, if it were the other way around, I’d want a friend to offer moral support. In fact I would do that for any of my close friends...I guess I didn’t quite understand the magnanimity of my actions, or rather what they meant to Klein.


He asked me to be his girlfriend.

Oh and he dropped the L-bomb.

i knew he was a stand up guy. friendship is something that shouldn't be taken for granted. i love good friends. you can't pick your family but you sure can pick your friends.

O_O << this confirms that this DID in fact, come as a surprise.

I'm really rooting for ya'll!! So, um, when he dropped it, did you pick it up and toss it back? What did you do?? How did you respond? *grabs popcorn*

I'm slow, but Klein is the young one right?

Good stuff homie, I'm assuming you said yes to the "will you be my gf" question?

We had our first "moment" last night...we ran into a friend of his, and he introduced me as his "girlfriend"...

ummmm, yea, I don't know... one day at a time

As far as the L-word goes....under the circumstances in which he said it, I felt compelled to say it back...there was no way around it...

there's a big difference between the l bomb and the l word. which one was it? like i got love for my friends and i might say i love you girl to a close female friend of mine, but thats doesnt qualify as the l bomb, ya dig?

Hey MLM - I've been slacking too

Dr. J - He said - "I LOVE YOU".... and he has said it more than a few times, since the original bomb dropped.

JVM said...

You gotta be straight with yourself on the 'status' and the L bomb - Are you happy with it? Because if not, you should make that clear, because you don't want to get to the point where he's been saying it a while and you THEN tell him you're not comfortable.

That said, letting go of being single can be hard - committing is difficult. If it's just that, don't worry, that will pass with time, I think. If it's because you don't feel as big about him as he does you, well, that's something that might linger or grow.

He dropped the L-bomb on you? I could use some of your mojo.

JVM & Vodka/Meat - 6 days later...things are much different.

I said it back due to the circumstance most def. Then on Tuesday he put me on the spot & asked me why I loved him, then he told why he loves me. blah, blah, blah... it's over
