Some of you who are kind enough to read my daily ramblings may have noticed my use of the word girlfriend in yesterday’s post. That is a recent development and one I have permission to share. To be clear she has not demanded I get her permission first, but anytime I am sharing info that’s not mine or just mine to share then I feel obligated to get consent. I haven’t always done that but I do try. Consent is sexy ya’ll.

Anyway back to the change from lady friend to girlfriend. Unlike my previous relationships where the transition to girlfriend was pretty obvious, this one is different. The discussion about relationship status usually took place around the same time as physical intimacy. But in a LDR that is tricky.

We ’met’ six weeks ago and have spent a great deal of that time getting to know each other through texts, letters, and video dating.  The level of intimacy is different depending on the type of interaction, but we have definitely moved past lady friend.

When I started this blog it was supposed to be about sharing my adventures dating women, but I find myself a bit reluctant to share too much. Like maybe I’ll jinx it.

Labelling or defining what we are to each other feels momentous, but it does feel a bit weird for both of us. I’ve never been in a LDR, and her only attempt did not go well. So we’re being cautious and open and honest about what this is and where it’s going. It’s exciting and scary, and it’s not going to be easy, and it won’t be cheap, but I already know, I’m ready for the adventure.

Buckle up, my friends.
