Whisper or Shout?

For the past 36 days I've waffled back and forth trying to determine how much to say and what to keep private. I mean, heck, it's my life and part of me wants to tell everyone!!!

But I have this bigger part of me that wants to keep my personal life my own; especially with something this new happening in it.

I also want to respect the privacy of the other person involved. He's mentioned conversations he's had with others, but I don't know how much he has shared.

So, here I am wanting to tell you that Wendell and I have been dating since the end of May, but afraid that I may jinx it all by saying too much.

But here is the crux of it all: How much is too much? How much of my telling you my side of the story begins to infringe upon his privacy? Or am I over thinking it and shouldn't be worried about it?

He’s the one who marched right into Arlene’s house the night of our first date with a huge bouquet of flowers. Everyone there saw them and ooh’d and aww’d over them; Arlene, Amber, the dog, the cats. I mean seriously, who’s going to keep the cats from spreading it around the neighborhood???

Here’s what I will say: I like Wendell A LOT! I have for quite a while and I’m as excited as excited can be about the whole thing!!

One day I will SHOUT it, but today it’s only a few whispers that may clue you in on why I’ve had a goofy grin on my face lately.

AH! I am screaming in front of my computer last night. This has to be the best news in a while. We were just talking about Wendell and wondering if he'd given up on dating. I am glad he hasn't and I'm glad he's dating YOU! And, since others know you are dating I don't think it's so bad to post about it here and there but I can see how you want to keep things on the low down. I miss you guys.

I don't know why I put last night. i meant tonight. I'll blame it on placenta brain. Ugh, I hate typos and I hate that I can't change them on here.

I am so excited that you are going public! I am excited that it has been this long and you are in so much like. I think you are right to keep some things private and not online, but you can tell me all about it on the phone! :)
