6 months

6 months.
24 weeks.
180 days.
4320 hours.
259200 minutes.
That is how long Dillon and I have been together.

I know it was a little dramatic, but guys, this is a big deal for me. I had a couple serious boyfriends in high school, one that I was even crazy about for years after high school. But none of it worked out, and now I know for good reason. Even every boyfriend since high school, I've gotten bored of everything to do with the relationship within 3 months, and just let it kind of die off.

I've tried convincing Dillon that he is wonderful and can do better, especially with the struggles we've been having lately. But he won't hear of it, and that makes me love him even more. Yes, you read that correctly, love. Since certain relationships, I've decided that I am going to be the crazy fun single aunt the rest of my life, and I loved the thought of it. I never wanted marriage and kids, unless I could adopt them. But since Dillon, my whole thought of everything has changed. I've never met any man who has ever been so loving, caring, giving, and supportive to me. And if you knew about my daddy issues, you would understand.

I'm stubborn, I'm crazy, and I'm very independent. It's hard to love and care for a person like me romantically, but he does. And I definitely think this is meant to last. There aren't any wedding bells or anything like that, just two silly peeps hanging out, being a team, living life the way it should be, and loving each other.

To Dillon: Thank you for everything you've done for me the past six months. I never would have thought I would want to spend the rest of my life with a man until I met you. I also never thought I would ever see you outside of Torchy's after that first night. And I also never thought that you were interested in me, even though you semi-half-proposed to me the night we met. Are you sure you still want to be with me? Because I still want to be with you. I love you more than I ever knew I was capable of feeling. The last six months have been some of the best in my life. Here's to many, many, many more. Love you grease monkey.
