It was love at first sight. It was an unexpected exchange of pheromones between two living entities. And I strongly believe that this type of love can be long-lasting, deep and strong.
As we connected instantly, I knew that this was going to be ‘it’.
We had a long distance for a while, with some heavy cheating involved. But those things are not talked about, that is the past.
This is the future, we are together now.
Destiny got me here, and I know this is the only place in the world I want to be right now. Im home.
But once you move from the ‘love at first sight’ phase to the ‘going steady’ phase, unexpected encounters and realizations materialize. So now that we are moving in together, all habits and character traits surface, good ones and bad ones.
And I’m already starting to learn and understand deeper parts of my partners personality. I realize that his mood swings are foggy and unexpected. Sometimes there are even a few clouded days in a row, affecting both our moods. This was something that I overlooked in our first weeks together, all seemed sunshine.
Then there are differences in expectations.
I still explore, travel out and leave. I’m all over the place, and that its impossible to keep me close continuously. Im a freedom fighter, no matter if there is love involved or not. And he needs to understand that Im planning get-aways, small breaks, and trust me that I’ll come back.
We are living and learning, we are discovering, getting to the core of eachother. I expect it to take time. I expect it to be wonderful and ecstatic. But I also realize that we will get clashes, rough encounters and fights, disappointments and annoyance.
San Francisco and me, we are living together.
