When you date someone, you don’t only date this individual but their family as well. Since day one, Matt’s family has been nothing but welcoming. Their family is seemingly perfect and although they have their own issues, they really genuinely care for each other. It’s a breath of fresh air in comparison to my family who are all so different and judgmental of each other that we can’t be in the same room for more than ten minutes before we all pick up our phones and fade away.
This weekend was proof that not only did I find my soulmate but he comes from an equally perfect family. I tried to organize a dinner with my mom and her boyfriend and Matt’s family but my moms boyfriend got sick and wasn’t able to make it and then my mom really stretched her laryngitis and couldn’t make it either. I didn’t bother to invite my brother or sister because they’re disrespectful and frankly, embarrassing. So I spent my Saturday night with his family and had a perfect night. And when everything was falling apart and I got upset, Matt picked up the pieces and organized everything.
I just can’t really even make sense of all the feelings I have running around in my head but I do know that no matter how troubling my own family might get, it feels amazing to know that I have a loving, caring, genuine group of people that I can call family to rely on.
