Dinner Rules and Dating

I don’t particularly care for putting labels on relationships.

It just isn’t important to me.

But with Curly-haired crush abroad, and a different interest around, they would be nice.

Socially constructed rules for how you interact with another person seem ridiculous, but they’re kind of nice. They give you guidance on how to behave.

Kind of like that silly rule about always passing food to the right at the dinner table. Seems unnecessary, but it’s awkward when you’re the one who has two dishes meet you at once. It prevents accidents (because I’m clumsy and always drop one of the dishes when in that situation).

It’s shit, but very useful shit.

I want to be at a point where I don’t feel the need for these rules.

Important Little Words

Curly-haired crush is in town this weekend.

And we’ve come to realize that we really like each other. Really really really like each other.

In fact, a certain, very significant, word was dropped.

It’s the first time I’ve used in (in a romantic way) and meant it.

It’s a big deal.

And I’m so happy about it.

I also need to find a better nickname than Curly-haired crush.
