|An interesting observation...

I was chatting with Josh last night, among other people. He mentioned liking Amy and was impressed with how comfortable she was and fit in with the group, especially considering that she was the only one there who didn't know everyone already. He also said that I seemed to be "content," which is something I never appeared to be when he saw me with Riki. My response was, "Well, to be honest, there's a reason for that." While I definitely enjoyed much of my time with Riki, and learned a lot about myself and relationships, I don't think I was ever content with our relationship. For instance, let's look at the issue of separation. Riki and I would have to spend 4 days in a row apart, due to various factors, including my lack of license, and our work schedules. Riki would be like "What are we going to do?" My response was, "Ummm. We'll wait four days. It's annoying, but it's not the end of the world." I don't want to be with someone who needs to be with me at all times. Amy and I are going to spend 4 weeks apart, due to the distance and schedules. Mind you, I'm disappointed that I don't get to see her again sooner than that, but I can live with it. And Amy's reaction to that was about the same. It sucks we can't see each other sooner, but that's life, and we'll deal. We're on the same page. Another way we're on the same page is physically. When we were making out, we reached a certain level, and I thought to myself, "Probably shouldn't go any further than this right now. Take things somewhat slow, so that we don't rush into anything stupidly." As this thought is going, Amy says almost the exact same thing to me.
We're not quite at the "sharing a brain" stage that Joel and I are at, but then Joel and I have had a lot more practice. ("No, that's Chain...") But, we do think along the same lines in a lot of ways, and I can see us heading towards that mental symbiosis if we continue along the same lines.
She also has a very similar sense of humor as myself. One of the gifts she gave me was a book by Christopher Moore, called "Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood pal." I'm only on Chapter 4 so far, but it's incredibly funny, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed "Good Omens." She also made a mix CD for me. I'm going to have to create a separate post just about that, because it's great, but it's unlistenable on the computers at work for some reason, so it's at home...
