It’s been six months and Parker and I are still going strong.
Parker is the cute, sexy twenty-one year old I met at Wal-Mart in February. Yes, he claims he is still into women (although he says he has not been with anyone other than me as of late) and no, we are not committed, but we have a wonderful relationship. I have been very resigned not to write about Parker because I somewhat feel as though I should not validate this unhealthy relationship with acknowledgement. But I have come to accept that I am enjoying the relationship and that I Parker has become a big part of my life. To each his own… um.. er.. maybe.
Parker has made great progress in regards to understanding himself and accepting himself lately. This past weekend, Jace (first-family cousin) had a birthday party/housewarming (on his rooftop I might add) and Parker actually wanted to go. He was apprehensive about the experience at first, but he had a wonderful time. He met all of my friends (i.e. first family) and he seemed well received (for the most part… thanks Uncle Ray).
As days go forward, I hope to see where things will go with Parker. I am still note expecting much and taking the situation at face value, but in this life of mine, you just never know.
