Hi Buddy. I am doing great. Much better after receiving your email. It is OK if you can't buy me something in ToonTown if you can't get it to work. I don't need gifts to know how much you love me.
I am looking forward to spring very much. You know how much I don't like to shovel snow. It is getting close to May, my favorite month of the year here in Michigan.
I love you very much. Thank you for the fantastic email.
He had asked how to use email and I explained it to him while I was getting ready for work. I thought he wanted to email his dad.
It totally made my day.
For those of you who are following the Poppy/Dean situation we do have an update. I received this email from Poppy:
We talked last night, I used a smoking and your pizza analogy. I explained it's hard to quit having sex cold turkey even when you want to wait. His problem is that he wasn't sure he could trust what I was saying (that I wanted to stay pure and had been thinking about it for a while). Maybe I was just saying it to stay with him, but would falter along the way (i.e. cheat, I think).
I told him that obviously it would be easier for me to remain pure while with him and I liked that - I liked that there was no pressure to be with him like that, especially since I knew it was not something I should do anyway.
I told him I knew he was worth working this out and asked if he felt I was worth it. He said yes a little hesitantly, but hugged me tightly.
He said he could trust me and move on, or go with that he thought I was just saying it and walk away. I told him a relationship is about trust. I asked if it was worth it to him to ruin something potentially good by thinking about what I had done, or if he was willing to trust me and see where this relationship could go. He said the latter, and I mentioned that he then needed to start thinking about me in a different perspective than he had been and move from this point forward.
I think the reason he was being a little strange when we all got together last night at the beginning is that he was still contemplating it. When you guys hauled out your cameras is when things went back to "normal". It was like a light went on and he realized this is what he wants - to be with me and work it out. Then we cuddled and kissed on his couch until 2am :)
It's not going to be peaches and cream, but we got over this bump - we can work through just about anything!
