Crushing at 36

Posted by on Friday, June 7, 2013

Isn't all that different that having a crush at 16.


Or at 21. 

It still makes me giddy. 

I still read far more into things (like OMG he winked at me this means that he must love me and I'd better start pinning wedding planning ideas* on Pinterest and picking out my engagement ring... And OMG I need a dress, and I want a fall wedding...).

At 36, though, I realize the above thoughts are irrational.

I still have them though. 

And it's crazy, because I only met this person three days ago. 

But he's cute (albeit young).

And it's nice to be reminded that my heart has not actually shrivelled up into a black ball of coal. 

Apart from our imminent wedding, I don't actually see this going anywhere. 

But it'll be fun while it lasts. 

* Please note that even if I were to find the most perfect man in the world, I have no intention of every marrying again. Once was enough, thankyouverymuch. Doesn't mean I can't pin things though.
