- Wedding: September 2013
So my boyfriend moved here to NY from Cleveland back in August to be with me. He is the first boyfriend in a long time my father likes.
My boyfriend works 3-11 so we don’t get much time together during the week. Yesterday was his day off, and I took a personal day and we spent it together. He cooked dinner and we cuddled up in bed and watched a movie. Well more so the movie watched me because I fell asleep. LOL. I woke up about midnight and I asked “you are still up”? He said yeah – I am texting with Dad. I didn’t pay it any mind and went back to sleep.
This morning I was getting ready for work and he woke up for a bit just to talk to me like he does every morning. He said did you hear me when I said I was talking to dad last night? I said yeah, what was that all about? He hands me his phone.
My father was like man to man, between us, how are you doing? Are you happy with your move or do you regret it? As you know that’s my baby girl and I just can’t stand to see her go through another heartbreak. I just want to be sure everyone is happy.
My boyfriend texted him back and said he is extremely happy. He said I am his best friend and we built our relationship on friendship first so because of that we have a strong foundation. He said he will never do anything to hurt me or Xavier (my 3 year old son). He said I am the most special person in his life and with his blessing he plans to make his wife – but they will talk about that in person. He told my dad he has nothing to worry about.
My dad texted him back referring to him as “son-in-law” and said that he is glad everyone is happy. He said he now has comfort in knowing that if anything were to happen to him, I would be taken care of. 🙂
My dad raised me since I was 5 years old. So I am VERY much a Daddy’s Girl. So knowing they are bonding is so comforting to me.
