Year 1

c3 and I, the couple, turn one year today.

Yup. One year. It seems longer to some of our friends. Well, because we knew each other longer than that. It was a very gradual process of getting to know each other. It was a friendship that started virtually, too, having been connected through social media. From no contact to one comment the friendship went, when we 4square-checked in at the same place, a party of a common friend.

Eventually, the comments became chats. And these became more regular. He was going through something and needed a friend outside his world. That needed a transition from virtual to real.

So we met up and had wine. From online chats to SMS and an occasional meet-up for updates. Then it was my turn to go through something. He was the friend to turn to. Then that 'something' turned to 'nothing' and I became ready again to let another person in.

He came in. He entered my life as partner last year. I asked him to come inside. I remember putting multiple post-its everywhere in his condo, asking him to be mine. He was surprised to see all that. He said 'yes'.

One year. Such a baby compared to some of my friends' relationships. But my track record is spotty. So I take things one year at a time.

This year one has been wonderful, c3. We begin Year 2 on a high.
