Honestly I'm still a little dumbstruck

This morning Lo asked me to be her girlfriend. I sent her six roses, and said yes. She is my first girlfriend. In fact, she is my first a lot of things. Soon...first person to hold hands with while in a movie, first person to hold hands with while in church, first..... (grin) I know so sad that I haven't done that before! I will probably refrain from talking much about us here, but there does need to be at least this announcement. O my word I just said "us".

And honestly I'm still a little dumbstruck. We are over the top into nicknames. Pretty much any that you can think of we have used but feel free to recommend more. Do you use nick names with your significant other? This is a fun question I've been asking a ton of people lately.

Let's see, three things about Lo. She seems to have this calming influence on my over active brain. She is a christian and spiritually reflective (meditates does yoga, swaps books with me...), and she is willing to wander around art museums with me. :)

Weeeee!!!!!! Congrats!!!!! Prepare for the learning curve of a lifetime!

My boyfriend used to call me pet names like sweetie and cupcake, and I hated it. I LOATHED it actually.

I'm so happy for you two! When I hit this stage not too long ago I realized that, unfair as it was, life really was nicer, easier, more fun as a couple. It was hard for me to sit with, but I hope you can because this stage is so darn lovely! Can't wait to meet Lo. You will let me, right???

Hooray!! Congratulations!!!

That's cute that you use pet names and stuff. I've never really thought about it, but my girlfriend and I don't use any pet names. I don't why. (??) Just a different dynamic, I guess. We have a good relationship though.

Well, hopefully things go well for you and Lo. That's awesome news!!!
