So…..it’s been a month that I am in a relationship.
(No, the 5 months of getting to know him are not counted. But since I have confirmed he is not a blood sucking vampire, we are now in a relationship. Worry not, I still have my secret stash of garlic and holy water and will use them at the first sign of doucheyness, haha. )
Anyway, so being in a relationship with a new man feels like learning it all over again. ‘It’ being playing the role of a GIRLFRIEND again. I am getting back in my groove of “hey we look kinda nice/I feel happy today, wanna take a picture?” But here comes my new age romance conundrum – I see him every weekend and while I really want to POST ALL THE PICTURES WE TAKE TOGETHER UP…is it acceptable to post pictures of us up every weekend?!
I mean dude, I just got happy again. I don’t want the evil eye casted on that happiness again because I went to plaster my happy couply face all over my IG and blog every weekend, making it susceptible to trolls!
Oh look at me. Modern, independent, city girl who believes AND is afraid of the evil eye. Ok but seriously,
a)are you in a relationship?
b)How many pictures do you share of your other half in a week? (regardless of whether you are in the shot or not)
c)How many times in a week do you think it is acceptable to see your friend’s couply shots?
d)Do you even care?
And the 75 million dollar question – Why do I even care?
This btw is one of the many reasons why I am with Nigel. Because he does not give a flying monkey’s ass about what you think of the 10 pictures/FB posts he is going to post of us/me every damn weekend/every time he misses me proclaiming that HE IS HAPPY. In fact, sometimes I have a nagging suspicion that he’d post stuff about us up a lot more had I not been so vocal about my discomfort about having us all over his FB and IG. We reached a compromise where he posts on his IG sporadically and doesn’t share it on FB but I am always plagued with the guilt of me stopping him from being who he really is – the fella who yells to strangers that he is happy.
Which reminds me, yo Pluto, did you get his message? Because he can definitely yell louder if need be. Haha. Nigel Gill.
