It has been a long time since Rob had a girl friend. His first girl friend was an intense 4 year relationship that at times I liked and at times petrified me. The young woman was very bright but ery very intense and I worried privately that things would spiral to a place that would damage their futures. She broke things off as they entered college and he was devastated.
He didn't date anyone seriously since then and we are entering year 3 of college. He had an active social life and many "girls who were friends" but gatherings were groups and not dates. Privately he told his younger sibs that he was not going to settle for just one girl.
Late this summer he met Moe. Moe lives in the neighborhood, is a bit younger than he and they began hanging out after Rob got out of work. He would go to her house and they would sit at a picnic table and talk and she came to our house and they had a fire in the fire pit. I actually thought they were going to part ways a week or so ago though as Rob complained that she was texting him too much.
While the comment made me laugh (he is like so many 20 somethings with the phone constantly at the ready!) I was hoping that he would give the relationship a bit more of a chance. And apparently he did, as last night he announced that they were a couple.
I hope they are good to and for each other.
