If you build it, he will come

[in my case it wasn't a baseball field, but my heart]
It was unexpected.
It started with a simple birthday message on facebook.
[I may have called him Mr. a little flirtily, but HI, he's cute- he deserved it.]
"Mr." was enough to get him to fb stalk me and write me back.
(not that I was trying for that, but hey! I'll take it!)
After a few exchanges and having my own stalker moment,
he asked me a question I didn't see coming.
"Would it be out of line if I asked for your number?"
I responded with a sassy comment about him carving my number into bathroom stalls & then
I gave it to him.
This was a Saturday.
I now know that at that point we were both checking facebook nervously for responses & he was writing and re-writing each message to me before sending it.
On Monday we met for coffee.
By Wednesday we were texting by day & meeting for drinks by night.
This is the night he looked at me with his big blue eyes and said,
"I wish we had done this 10 years ago."
It's funny to think we've known one another this whole time,
(we've even been living down the street from one another)
and have been living totally separate lives.
We've spent all but 2 evenings together since that first coffee date.
2 weeks have flown by, but also felt like a lifetime.
Being with him feels very natural, but I still have a nervous twinge and the butterflies.
That's something I've never experienced before...
feeling comfortable but also full of butterflies.
He is an amazing guy & I feel lucky to know him.
Is it love? Is it forever?
I don't know, y'all! I don't count my chickens before they hatch.
Only time will tell.
Right now, all i know is that the number of times a day he makes me smile blows my mind.

You will know him as "The Mr." & I will know him as the smile on my face.
Maybe tomorrow I will give you some details about him?
