Okay, so some people may have noticed my lack of being online in any large capacity. Well, there is a reason, and I love every second of that reason.
 
One day, I recieved a comment on my VampireFreaks page fro a girl named GothyLox. She didn't live too far from me - Modesto, actually, about 30 minutes drive south of Stockton - and she seemed to be into the same things I was. The same music, the same sense of humor, the same ideals. We decided to hang out one day, which ended up being a date, which quickly became John and his new girlfriend, Elizabeth.
 
Liz is the first girl that I feel like I don't have to be ashamed about being myself around. A big fan of HIM, Cradle of Filth and Scars on Broadway, she doesn't force me to change channels or stop listening to my favorite bands. She doesn't judge my over-abundance of gaming. In fact, she joins in when it comes to Guitar Hero & Rock Band. She doesn't even mind my fading-but-existant WWE interest.
 
It's a two-way street, though. Sometimes, things are tough in both of our lives, but then we just have a moment of talking and everything seems less complicated. I never knew that a relationship could be this strong so quickly. I completly take back the bad posts I have made in the past about love being bullshit. I can see now that that was from a cynical, jealous heart that yearned to be loved. 
 
...yeah, that sounded a bit gay, I know.
