Madison and I have been living together for the past two years. It’s been an arrangement that has worked well for the both of us.

We always get along well, whether we’re having dinner or in more private pursuits.

I’ve not made any secret of the fact that I want more out of our relationship than what we currently have. Does that make me selfish? I’ve put two years into Madison, and I’m not getting a clear signal that we’re not going to move anywhere.

And it’s not just about the sex, even though that’s a very nice perk. If it was just that, I probably would have ended things a long time ago.

I love that she loves sports as much as I do. I don’t have to explain the rules as we watch the game; that’s rare for a female.

I admire her dedication to her job. Although she’s doing something she loves, so what’s the saying? She’ll never work a day in her life or something like that. She’s lucky; I really want to switch jobs, but there are no openings in my preferred field.

And she’s so intelligent and informed, despite never having gone to college. You’d never be able to tell.

I want to make this woman my wife, but I don’t know if she’ll have me. I’m willing to wait a bit longer, but in the end, I’ll have to ask if I want my happy ending. I only hope by then that I know her answer will be yes. I’d hate to know all this was for nothing.

  • Title ref: This Is My Life – Fefe Dobson.
  • They now both have an engagement want, but I’ve got engagement fatigue. So I’m putting them off till next round.
  • I actually enjoyed writing from Joe’s perspective. Who’d’ve thunk?
