UPDATE: September 2012. Midwestern Man and I are no longer together. We broke up about six weeks ago. It was for the best. So, sadly, none of what comes next applies anymore. We are just not compatible at all, and the relationship had been crap for a long time. We should have broken up years ago…
Midwestern Man is now my husband. We met in April 2008 in the café where he works. I would go in there some mornings after going to the gym to write in my journal. I noticed straight away that he was handsome (lovely, dark curly hair and olive skin…just how I like ’em) but he was very aloof and unfriendly, so I thought he was a dick. He thought I was a bitch because he claims I treated him like a servant when he brought me my food one morning (not true! I was just on my cell phone, and couldn’t hang up, as it was an important call).
We eventually got over our dislike of each other, and had a nice little chat one day. The next day we bumped into each other in a local supermarket, chatted for four hours…and, well, the rest is history.
We got married in April 2009 in a little town in the middle of the desert!
We wouldn’t have got married so quickly if my visa hadn’t been about to run out but I don’t regret what we did.
We’re both still learning how to be in a committed, loving relationship (me especially), so stay tuned to see what happens!
