Throughout my life I have involved myself in a few romantic relationships. Some seemed good at first and withered. Some were bad from the start but I settled anyway. Some were out of loneliness or desperation. Some were out of boredom and the desire for company. But ultimately, none of them worked out in the long run.
There's that saying "someday someone will come along that will make you understand why it never worked out with anyone else." I always wanted to believe that, but thought it to be a fantasy; an inspirational quote to keep people's spirits up. Until it happened to me.
And now, now there's this guy Jarrod, and he's like no one I've ever met before. It started off very casually, working together and associating with each other only at work. But as time went on, we talked more and more during our shared shifts. We discovered through our conversations that we have been through a lot of the same troubles in relationships, parenting, just life in general. We discovered that we have the same beliefs on the big things, like religion and politics. We share a very similar parenting style, with a great love and appreciation for our children and family.
Then we started talking and spending time together outside of work, which is where things started to move very quickly. Days have blended together, nights have flown by, just talking and discussing our lives, and finding strong similarities at every turn, which is still continuing today. It was sudden, and crazy, but we know with absolute certainty that this will be forever. Kindred spirits, soul mates. There's no denying it. The similarities, the comfort we find in one another, the deepest unexplainable connection we share. Being with him makes me realize why it never worked with anyone else, for real. No fantasy. And he feels the same way. It feels like we were born for each other.
