My boyfriend dating a long time
Now 22, I start every day with two things: A cup of coffee and a "good morning" text from Nick. My addiction to his loving wakeup text is as real as my addiction to Starbucks.But addictions are typically bad, and, after texting with Nick pretty much nonstop for eight years, I decided I should try to take some distance. Two things about house phones: (1) They are heavy and holding it up to your ear is a workout you're not trying to participate in.I am a Millennial baby and I shouldn't be chained to a landline. I'm usually preoccupied during a weekday, but this day was a holiday so I was off of work.I should be able to talk to bae whenever I damn well please. Nick wasn't off, though, so I was just hanging out with my phone, bored.They’re right, I don’t have trouble meeting people but I do have trouble finding men that want to get to know me seriously and not just use me for my body.I dress in a way that’s flattering to me but I don’t let all my stuff hang out.I remember our initial awkward, flirty texts, which led to pages-long text conversations that we'd have until we fell asleep.I remember (vividly) when Nick sent a text saying he was "really into" me in the Cool Freshman high-school boy way.
He called me that night and, as every other phone call, it was great, but I was feeling really over having to use a house phone to talk to him.
I recently made an online profile in the hopes of trying to find a man that I can connect with on a deeper level than the past.
