The Dream Becomes Reality

When I started this long-distance relationship with Sunshine 3 1/2 years ago, the hope was that one day we would be together living under the same roof. As the relationship progressed, I really thought that it was more of a pipe-dream…that it would be a solid ten years before we’d be together.

Then one day, everything changed.

My fear was that I wouldn’t be able to see my son; he was the whole reason I was so steadfast into staying in my city. Sunshine actually gave me the suggestion that I could Skype with my son during the week and rent an apartment so I could still visit him every two weeks. Combined, I might actually end up seeing him just as much if not more than I do right now. It seemed to be such a simple solution, yet one I had never really given any legitimate thought towards.

When I decided to propose, I discussed this idea with my ex-wife and also my son…who not only gave his blessing but was excited about talking to me on the computer as opposed to having a two-hour meal with me twice a week. Everything began coming together, but the reality of the situation still didn’t seem real…even after Sunshine accepted my proposal. It was still a day-dream that seemed months and months away.

We’re at the stage now where it’s down to a matter of weeks instead of months or years. My resume is now “out there” and I’m just waiting for the interviews to begin (y’know…when I’m actually called…lol).  I’m at the point where I’m hoping to get a job ASAP, even if it means it’s not my “perfect job” just because I want to start living with Sunshine and her two girls.

In addition, a possible new apartment/flat opportunity has come up that has the two of us very excited. We’re going to view the place this Sunday and unless the place is a total dump (which I can’t see being the case as they’re replacing the windows, renovating the bathroom, and also renovating the kitchen), we’re going to be all over it like stink.

So as one day passes onto the next, this dream of ours…a dream of two life-partners sharing a life together…is becoming a reality. And I, for one, couldn’t be any happier.

  1. I love how everything is finally coming together for you two!! I wouldn’t have guessed it either so soon, though I knew eventually, it would happen, you two are just meant for forever. Just a matter of circumstance. So happy for you both!

    1. I’m loving it, too. At this point, the only thing I’m needing to have happen is to get some phone calls from potential employers.

      And I truly believe that we’re 100% made for each other. We’re going to grow old together…of that I have no doubt.

  2. I’m so happy – and a little envious – for you guys. Things do seem a bit impossible in an LDR. I think things falling into place effortlessly does say a lot. I just want to squeeze the both of you! Just so damn excited for you two!!!

    Can’t wait to see you soon!
