And when I finally met Eddy for our first date, I had been going on so many of these, and was so busy, I didn't even know his name.
I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt.
It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter.
There were points where I was going on dates with two or three people a week.
Dating people casually, I didn't really meet anyone that I was interested in for a while.
I went on dates with a few guys, and it wasn't good.
I was just not into it, and was about to quit, but then I saw this guy.
Neither of us was looking for anything super-serious, but we kept hanging out regularly and it just kind of happened without either of us noticing.
I have a son from a previous relationship — Jackson, he was 2 at the time — and they met and just really hit it off.
Both our siblings and my mom know and are happy for us.
My father will have a difficult time with it, but I believe will accept him in time.
But I'd mentioned on one of our dates that I have an obsession with King Richard III, and maybe two days later he texted me all these articles about how they'd found Richard III's body. Once I realized that he's the kind of person who says what he means and means what he says, I was so happy.
