"You are SUCH a liar!" Wifester said as she erupted in laughter.
"What the hell are you talking about now?" I retorted, somewhat amused and slightly defensive. After she gained control of her sudden outburst of chuckles and ha-ha's, she went on to say that in my post the other day, the one about our anniversary coming up, she felt like I had misled my readers, you, my peeps.
What, what what???!!!
Explains Wifester, "You said we didn't second-date U-haul!" For those who aren't familiar with the term or it's origins, lesbians are infamous for moving in together after 2 or three dates. Don't ask me why, just accept that that's what many lesbians do. We however, most certainly did not.
We didn't. I moved out of my apartment and into Wifester's house after what I thought had been a full year after we started dating...she reminded me that I kept insisting it be a full year, but we actually only made it to the 6 month mark, at which time I caved in and said I'd move in with her. Ok, so I was in fact wrong on that detail. I conceed, we didn't wait a full year to move in. I'm sorry to have mislead you on that. It truly was not intentional. That, however, isn't even the point Wifester was gunning for. She went on to propose the notion that after our second date, we spent every day together. There was one night that I made her go home saying "We can't spend EVERY night together..." But in her opinion, for all intents and purposes, we were already living together.
I say no way, Jose! She still had her house, which she paid all her bills at, and I had my apartment which I did the same for. All my stuff was at my place, all her stuff at hers. Sure, there was the extra toothbrush at the other's house, I mean, come on, you need that. And we each had our overnight bags ready at all times. We simply enjoyed each other's company from the start. That doesn't mean we second date U-hauled. If I wanted her to leave, I could say "Go home" and she had a home to go to, and vice versa. That option was still there. I say we U-hauled when we actually rented the U-haul, terminated my lease, packed my shit, moved it into her place, and began sharing bills. That's living together, and that did not happen until 6 months down the road.
We're at a stalemate. She feels we Second Date U-hauled, I feel we didn't.
