It is official. Maria now has her very first, he actually asked her (twice) to be his girlfriend, boyfriend. He's about four years older than she, which at 20 and 24 really isn't that big a deal. They have shared interests - they met at an Anime convention this summer. He has called or texted or called and texted her every single day since she came home.
She's very nervous, though. She has been in therapy for almost four years now, but she's still not really comfortable with the idea of an adult-type relationship. And while I beat myself up over it each and every day, I did get her out when I could. I just couldn't do it soon enough.
But... he's well dressed, and soft-spoken, and he respects her and wants to make something of his life. And he really does seem to want to get to know her better. I've got to give him credit for that, as well as for hanging in there when she initially told him she wasn't interested. (In a nice way, of course.)
However, I have informed her that there will be no dreads at the wedding. (Not that she's planning one, but still...)
