When did you know something for certain?
Writing Prompt: Write about when you knew something for certain?
I don’t think I’ve been certain about a lot of things in my life but one thing I’ve been certain about though is my boyfriend of nearly 3 years Erik. I wasn’t sure about him when I met him or even the month or 2 that we were friends. I knew there was an attraction but I just wasn’t sure if it wasn’t something I even wanted to approach. He was different than all the guys I’d ever been used to in my life. He was attentive, he really cared about my opinions, he wasnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t afraid to be overly romantic and simply just wanted to be around me as much as possible. I felt like Carrie in Sex and the City when she was with Aidan. It was all just too good, she didnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t feel comfortable unless it was difficult and painful.
I had many wonderful moments with Erik from day one but for a while I still felt so unsure and confusedÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦he was too niceÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦he was too good lookingÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦he was too perfect for me. Maybe if he played some games with my head or was unavailable most of the time then IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d know how to be with him but this was uncharted territory.
For me I knew he was the real deal when I went to visit a friend for the night and left my favorite (and hideously disgusting) blanket behind. I found out he slept with it all night because it smelled like me. The boyfriend before Erik couldnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t stand that blanket and wouldnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t even let me sleep with it he hated it so much. ThatÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s when I realized Erik really loved me, and all of me, just as I am. That was when I was certain about himÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦any man who could love me, and my blanket, was someone that would be around forever.
