This was due to The Boy being….well, The Boy.
You see, we are very, very opposite people.
He’s a mellow brooder with the charm of a Charm God …or something.
I am a dramatic-expressionist with the the temper of a rollercoaster.
He never really worries, because he has shockingly good luck and everything just works out for him.
I am a giant Stress Head, who has ranted on several occasions about everything in the world ganging together to torment her.
He has a very boring taste in food and a fear of the culinary unknown.
I will try anything and love a number of strange food combos.
I resembled a turkey for the first two years of my life and have a white-girl afro that I struggle to hide.
Everyone who meets The Boy falls madly in love with The Boy.
I am very blunt and “get away from me because you annoy me”-ish…a human hedgehog, if you will.
He likes computer games, football, hanging out in the pub and being a Lad.
I love writing, literature, photography, acting, old movies, art and fashion.
We do both enjoy How I Met Your Mother and Lady GaGa…
…and that’s where the similarities end.
So understandably, our relationship can be a tad “tempestous”, to borrow from the vocabulary of a soft porn novel.
Generally we’re grand, because when something happens, I go BLAH BLAH BLAH for about 5mins and then I forget about it cos I’ve said what I wanted to say and I go back to normal.
The Boy is just relieved at this point that nothing has been thrown at him.
So we’ve been fighting for nearly two weeks now, because I told him about something I was worried about, he made it all about him and all hell ensued.
Lol, he’s going to go mad when he reads this, but please note that 97% of the time he really is The World’s Most Perfect Boyfriend, and even though most girls say that, I’m actually right because he has made me his life and is astonishingly thoughtful almost-always.
After some Oscar-worthy theatrics on my part and some sulking on his, we EVENTUALLY put things right last night.
There were hugs and kisses and I Missed Yous.
And then ….
….just before we were about to go asleep…
….after enjoying the first few moments of peace we’ve experienecd together in TWO WEEKS…
…he said, under the guise of a joke….
“Well, really this was all kinda your fault by telling me about X….”
I am deadly serious.
