I'm so happy. I've been friends with my coworker Dan for three months and I've known the whole time he had a crush on me. I didn't know about going out with him. I wasn't sexually attracted to him. For awhile, I didn't like him even as a friend. I thought he was similar to my ex boyfriend. Now I realize he's not like my ex where it really matters. I decided to give Dan a chance and I'm so happy I did. He's everything I could want. He's my best friend. He's sweet, respectful, gentle, he works hard, he's great at his job, he's loving, helpful, and just amazing. I could compare Dan to my ex and Dan would win. Where my ex during our four years only helped me wash dishes once, Dan helped me clean my whole house on the first date. I insisted it was horribly messy and he didn't have to. But he insisted he likes cleaning and wanted to help. When he made a slightly offensive joke, I told him why it bothered me and he immediately apologized and felt bad about it all day. I didn't want him to feel bad about it, but I do appreciate he really respected my feelings. I love him. I know it's moving really fast. We even had sex on the first date. If he had clothes for work with him, he would've spent the night with me. He's spending the night after work today.
