The more things change...

Well, a few of you may have noticed some changes in my behavior the last few days...fewer, shorter, less meaningful LJ posts, for example. (Go ahead, scroll back over them, you'll see it.) More of those LJ posts than usual have been at least vaguely sexual. Probably been more cagey on IMs--not really sure, and I'm too lazy to go back over the logs and see.

That's because I've had something to hide. But last night, that became unnecessary. I can now tell you guys that Liz and I are together.

If there's a betting pool on us (I wonder sometimes), the winning date is the sixth. Yes, of April. Yes, of this year. No, it hasn't been going on for months or years. Really.

I suppose this is the part where I'm supposed to describe how I feel, but I can't...I can tell I'm happy, but I can't really describe it beyond that. There are some other surface emotions, too, like relief that I'm actually not so incredibly inept with people as to be completely unable to get a girl. A lot of weight off my shoulders to no longer have to tip-toe around in a somewhat charged friendship...

At the same time, though, I'm aware that I need to be somewhat careful. I watched her leave four relationships, one with a good friend. Obviously, I hope to do better than those four guys. :^) But she is, first and foremost, my friend, and even if this doesn't work out, I want to preserve that.

Comment away, minna...

A few related notes to individual people:

Ian, thanks for being so incredibly reasonable. I imagined a thousand outcomes of telling you, but none of them involved the words "good luck with that" without a load of bitter sarcasm.

Rae-chan, Snow, thanks for not blabbing. You can come out now. :^)

I believe I shall now quote one of your great American classics:

I've got a baaaad feeling about this.

Other than that, I'm really not qualified to say much.

I hadn't noticed, but I'm almost completely oblivious that way.
Good luck.

So, um, do you know if this means I'm allowed to re-friend Liz (the sangochan account) yet? I still haven't heard any word...

You can refriend me, I figured you didn't want to.

Does that make you my oniisan? *blink* Interesting, that...

In all seriousness though, good luck, and I hope things go well. And even if things don't, I hope that things go well enough that the friendship doesn't break. ^.^;

*sends hugs to you and Liz-oneesan*

I don't see why it's so incredible that I'd be reasonable. ^^ Extended bitterness is not really becoming. Therefore, I wish you both many happy returns.

However, you still owe me a drink. ^_~

It's only incredible because I have a part of my brain dedicated to torturing me with worst-case scenarios, and you being extremely bitter was one of them. I need to do a better job of remembering that they never actually happen.

I do think you're still right about that drink, though...

Just want to say congratulations. I have no 'warnings of evil' to give, wish you both the best of luck, and just want to say that I have high-hopes for this.

its against my values :-p
ah, but its worth it.

firstly, i STILL dont believe in posting about serious matters on LJ :-p. But this isnt so serious so i'll throw in the "hurrah" or whatever.

Plus - i get to drink some vodka! *drinks in celebration of sorts*

best of luck you guys, i hope things go as well for me & my close friend. Evolution is nice....

i seem to have been interrupted 1 to many times... meh.

rock on, rock hard, enjoy it. And props to C-kun for non-bitterness :-)
