We met online through the lesbian dating app, Her, a little over a month ago. I didn’t expect it to lead to anything, yet here I am dreaming of building a life with her.
One moment we were trying to resolve a misunderstanding that stemmed from not knowing what we were to each other and the next moment we were making our relationship unquestionably official.
She is my girlfriend and I her’s.
That’s one of the many things I like so much about her- there aren’t any gray areas.
She wasn’t afraid to tell me that she was looking for a long term relationship and if I was looking for anything other than that I could bounce.
We have not met yet. We’re in sort of a long distance situation. An hour and thirteen minutes apart by car according to Google Maps.
“Not so far.” she said.
“Not bad at all.” I told her. “I love road trips.”
We have talked on the phone a handful of times. She’s Dutch and has an accent. That coupled with the sound of her voice makes me smile uncontrallably every time I hear it.
I can’t wait to meet her. She runs her own business and I work an overnight schedule. Both of our jobs become busier around the holidays, so neither one of us knows for sure if the planets will align in the next month and allow us to meet.
I hope so, but I’m ok with waiting.
