Over the weekend, M went on a boy's weekend with his high school friends. We barely spoke to each other because that was my rule. I told him that since he is playing catch up with his friends, he just needs to check in with me from time to time but to not text me the whole day.
Don't get me wrong. M and I are fine. I just wanted him to be able to maximize his time with his friends. I was never a fan of women who cling the whole time because it really can be suffocating.
I feel that the weekend off has been good for the both of us. For the last 5 months or so, we have seen each other almost daily and though it is sweet, I know now that timeouts are also necessary.
When he came home today, he told me his missed me and I realized that I really missed him as well. He asked me to dinner and movie. Loved it! Dinner was at Tokyo Tokyo and we were able to catch up with each other. Afterwards we watched Deadpool 2 which for me was a horrible movie but he seemed to really like it so I endured. Haha.
We've been together for 5 months now and it has been a crazy ride. What I like about this is that it has been mostly happy moments. There have been sad ones but it's rare and few.
The first 3 months he got me flowers but on the 4th and the 5th, he got me stuff from Starbucks which I really, really loved. The pink tumbler is for the 4th month and the cat tumbler is for our 5th month.
I cannot wait to see how the rest of our story unfolds. I know now that it works for the both of us to have timeouts and to go on simple dates from time to time. We don't need anyhting fancy, we just need time with each other.
