[continued from Part 1]
Once back home from his birthday dinner, I started telling Sebastian that I had talked to one of my best friends recently about new developments. When I told her that I was going to Europe on vacation, I told her I was going with "my-ex-turned-friend-turned-open-relationship" at which Sebastian said "You mean boyfriend, right?" I gave him a blank look as he continued saying "Well, it's pretty obvious that we're together."
Without a flinch I told him "You never asked me to be your girlfriend."
"Well, I didn't think I needed to ask you. I mean, we sort of just fell back into it." he answered. "I mean, I'm not looking at marriage anything soon. To tell you the truth, I don't think I'll ever get married again."
"Um... that's ok. I'm not thinking of marriage. Plus, I don't know if I ever want to get married either."
It's a whole fairytale at this point. I think that's what I want. But I'm more interested in commitment. He doesn’t believe in monogamy forever. He doesn’t believe in marriage any more. I think his divorce had a lot to do with it and maybe I just met him at the wrong time.
As he left Sunday night, I said to him "No nookie when you're out on vacation in Redding next month."
He turned to me with a confused look and answered "No Ren, that's our thing. And I don't plan on looking for it elsewhere.."
So, I guess...... this makes us........ a couple? Meh..... I didn't bother to ask again. Both our statuses on Facebook read "single." I'm still tempted to assume that he's leaving it that way because he's not familiar wih FB. ;)
