Missing Boy Wonder

So Boy Wonder is out of town for the summer — testing his wings and making new friends. He'll return in September, but that doesn't keep me from missing him now.

It's funny, really... our first date was three months back, and since then we've chatted daily (we're both online during the day for work), and gone out every week... but we still managed to keep it casual. We were never boyfriends, and we weren't even officially "dating" ... of course, that doesn't change the fact that I've got a hole in my life that is aching to be salved.

But no worries.

It's kind of nice to know that people can still affect me that way... that I can wrap my heart around someone... that people can play an important part of my life. I can so easily be caught-up in more cerebral pursuits, that I fear (sometimes) that I couldn't possibly love someone. That somehow I'd forgotten how. But that's just nonsense... we're all profoundly social creatures, and I'm no different — and certainly not as special as I'd like to think, sometimes.

Anyway... be good, Boy Wonder... and I'll see you later this summer!
