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 wasn’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 didn’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 confused…he was too nice…he was too good looking…he was too perfect for me. Maybe if he played some games with my head or was unavailable most of the time then I’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 couldn’t stand that blanket and wouldn’t even let me sleep with it he hated it so much. That’s when I realized Erik really loved me, and all of me, just as I am. That was when I was certain about him…any man who could love me, and my blanket, was someone that would be around forever.
