I tend to talk about my love life a lot on here. It’s therapeutic for me to get what’s running through my head out somewhere for me to reflect on but not obsess over. What has been on my mind lately has been moving on. Let me explain.

I went out on a date on August 4th with a guy I had been talking to for a little bit on POF. We hit it off instantly, both through text and in person. The date went as great as a first date can go and I couldn’t wait to talk to him again. We’ve been talking ever since and I’ve seen him 3 times in a week. He’s so funny, so intelligent, so thoughtful and caring. We have a ton in common and he keeps me on my toes. He’s seemingly perfect for me.

I woke up this morning thinking that I’m really starting to like him. It’s driving me crazy that I don’t know what’s going through his head but that’s another story. I started thinking about how I have been so hung up on relationships and everything but never getting anywhere with them. For the first time I can see it happening. For the first time I actually have thought about completely moving on from Tyler. I’ve started referring to this as “the moving on process”.

Like I said, I’m not really sure how this guy is feeling so this thought process could all be one sided but it’s refreshing to have this thought at all. I never thought I would get there. I figured I’d always be hung up on Tyler forever. Don’t get me wrong he’s always going to hold a special place in my heart but if something were to happen with this guy I wouldn’t have any question in my mind about it. Has this happened to anyone before? Is it weird that it’s taken me over a year and a decent amount of dates for this to happen? I really feel like it’s a huge moment in my life as odd as that sounds.

Let me know your thoughts or share your stories if it’s happened to you!
