I have a boyfriend.
For the first time.
And I'm happy about it.
This fox of a man is Colton. And he loves me!
Let me tell you about him...
He's incredibly kind.
He's brilliant. (I feel like he might have been a child prodigy, actually...)
He's ridiculously good-looking.
He's super talented.
He can always make me laugh, and he can convince me of pretty much anything.
(Except that pectin is made of lizard guts. Although he did make me doubt myself...)
He loves talking about the big things, not just the small things. And he has a very solid theology, which is really important to me.
He loves his family, and my family loves him.
He wants to be a director of photography, specifically of feature films. And he's on the way!
He plays the guitar, piano, and drums. And he's quite the composer!
He's a super photographer, and reintroduced me to 35 mm.
He can't dance.
He's very good at imitating other people's voices.
He has excellent taste in music, literature, and film.
He cries at good movies.
He raced motorcross, and still loves riding and designing/building tracks.
He's a cat whisperer.
He loves to jump off of high things like cliffs, boulders, or trees. Water underneath is optional.
He used to yo-yo. He placed in a mall competition, which I think is funny.
He lost his new glasses on a boat. (Unfortunate... I really liked them)
He humors me when I pester him to speak in Russian, or do the Vitalik voice, or sing a song.
He consented to eat at the girly tea room for my birthday, and allowed my grandmother to wrap a feather boa around his neck.
Basically, he's a keeper.
We always have so much fun together.
We were each other's first kiss, and first relationship :)
He's trying to choose his favorite cornbread recipe at the South Pittsburgh National Cornbread Festival (He decided on the "Woo! Cornbread pups", which have a surprise hot dog in the middle)
We like being outside.
And while we're outdoors, we usually take a whole lot of pictures.
He makes a bandana a new level of cool :)
Seven(ish) months, and going strong!
He's in Florida right now, playing guitar for the Grecian Urns' cd opening. They're our band's sister band, and they're fabulous. Check them out on myspace!
(I can't wait for him to get back, though.)
Poll: What's the best way you guys have found to encourage and connect in a long distance relationship? Now that Colton's graduated, he's three hours away :(
