"We're dating."

Never thought I would be saying that again. It still sounds strange, after 48 hours, almost half of which we've spent together.

How am I supposed to be feeling right now? Keep in mind I've only done this whole relationship thing once before. Last time, I was exhilarated and joyous. Not this time. I'm very calm, and don't feel any different, even though I know my situation has changed. Although I did catch myself singing as I walked to class this morning.

Unlike some of my classmates, who are engaged to be married to some attractive and very rich frat guys, I never wanted to be swept off my feet into a world of luxury and perpetual happiness. Although I'm a little worried about my lack of excessive emotion concerning this affair, the fact that I'm not experiencing this kind of limerance makes me think this is the real thing.
