My 4th of July weekend was amazing, though. I kept wishing he was there with me to meet my family and relax by the lake, but he works. BIG PLUS there haha. I've ran into so many lazy asses through these dating sites, and he is not one of them.at.all.
Yesterday he asked me, "Why do I feel so comfortable around you?"
I DON'T KNOW!?!? How am I supposed to explain it? Why do I feel the same way?! I've only known you for a little less than a month, but yet I feel like I'm in the honeymoon stage! It's insane!
Samoa is his nickname, by the way. He has a thick Samoan heritage. I learn something new about it every day. I love it. I have never met someone so involved with their culture and ethnicity. I was really embarrassed when he asked me what my ethnicity was and all I could say was.. "uhm Caucasian?"
I'm a dummy and he said, "No.. I meant are you Irish? German? Where does your ancestry lie?"
And I hate that I didn't have a 100% positive answer. I know I have both Irish and German in my heritage as well as Canadian. But I am in no way knowledgeable of exactly where my family comes from. I kind of envy his passion towards his culture.
So I'm bringing in the checklist. Anyone remember reading my post about being so dang picky when dating?
Christian 5'8 or taller...he's 6'6 Job required-Army Veteran and has a part time job until he finishes school in May 2015. Independent-has lived on his own since college. No Smoking-hates it as much as I do!
- Romantic -He comes across as a hopeless romantic, but still early to see that side of him yet.
Pretty Teeth-Very straight, very clean! & Is kind of OCD about a clean mouth :) Single-this may be off the table now haha I'm pretty sure he's mine all mine.
Here's a list of things that will add brownie points to the dude, but aren't exactly necessary:
Capable of growing a nice beard-his beard is BEAUTIFUL
- Open mind about adopting kids vs. having kids of our own haven't discussed this yet.
Okay with exploring different countriesHe has been EVERYWHERE Ambition...he has it for sure!!
- Roller Coaster Junkie - He's only been on ONE his entire life!
Not mentioning the sex topic within the first couple weeks of talkingIt came up but not too early :)
- Plays guitar-or-piano and can sing
- Can change the oil in my car
Appreciative of family time
I mean look!!! SOOO many mark outs (meaning he has fulfilled my requirements). I'm still learning more and more about him. Sorry for all the mushy gushy stuff haha I'm usually totally again these types of posts but I'm just overwhelmingly happy right now and can't help it so..yeah. deal with it ;)
