My new man

For those who have asked, the new man in my life is actually an old friend.  He and I dated very briefly before I started dating BF, and after BF and I established a relationship, my man and I just became really great friends.

He has been there for me during the pregnancy, the adoption plan and the subsequent placement.  Then he has listened to me cry for years and he has remained my friend despite my high maintenance periods where I was a sobbing mess for weeks at a time.

He is so good to me.  I cannot describe what it is like to have someone who is so responsive to my needs.  We talk about EVERYTHING.  He showers me with attention and affection and quite honestly it has taken some getting used to.  It doesn't seem real, but as time goes on, I realize this is what I had wanted all these years and it really is good.

So to put a face to the new character in my story, here is a photo we took last week at a concert.

Look at how he holds me.  I love it. :)

Thank you everyone. Yes, he is a handsome man. But he is just as good to me as he is handsome. It sure has made me a very happy girl.

PS - We must stop talking about his striking good looks. He is a long time reader of this blog (since the beginning) and I'm afraid it will go to his head! :)
