Sapphire & Me


I don't think there are any words that can describe how hard I have fallen for Sapphire. There is so much that I like about her. I haven't spoke much about her on this blog, but I guess this is as good a time as any to give you the 411...

Sapphire is 5'3" and if I had to guess her weight I would say 115 pounds. She has brown hair and piercing sapphire blue eyes. Her hair goes just passed her shoulders. She wears it in a variety of styles. She has slim features. She is a nice casual dresser (extremely ladylike). Her makeup is always modest, but on-point (she does a good job highlighting her features with her makeup). She is truly a beautiful woman. 

Her voice is really soft. She is very soft spoken.

You would think she is shy because she comes across as an introvert, but she is not. 

Sapphire is a real estate agent. She is also an expert at interior design. Like me, she dreams of owning her own business one day. 

She was born and raised in Canada to an upper middle class family. She moved to Montana (apparently she has family there) when she was 21 and then Atlanta when she was 26 just because she wanted a change. Shortly thereafter she convinced her best-friend to move from Canada to Atlanta.

Sapphire is 28 years old. 

I am not the first black woman she has dated. In fact, I am number three. She is an equal opportunity dater (meaning she just goes with the flow with whoever). She is probably the most liberal white person I've ever met when it comes to race (I'll write a separate blog about our conversation about race...I'll just say that she thinks we Americans are stupid for focusing on it).

When I go to Sapphire's apartment she has this thing where she calls out my name before she reaches the door. I always say, "Yes, 'insert her name' it's me."

She always greets me warmly with a hug and a kiss. She loves to be held...whether it be me wrapping my arm around her on the couch or pulling her onto my lap...Sapphire just likes to be held close.

She is really big on romance movies (I can't count the number of times we've watched The Notebook together). She is the first person I've ever met who has Danielle Steel's made-for-tv movies on DVD!

She has a way of looking at me that warms my heart. There have been times when we've been staring at each other and I've thought to myself, "Jesus this woman is beautiful..."

I've been very forthcoming with my feelings for her. I send her flowers, cards, and candy. She has returned my feelings and today we decided that we are exclusively dating each other.

Periodically, throughout my day, I send her some really lovey dovey text messages....and she returns the favor. 

We haven't had sex yet and I'm fine with that. We both agreed to take our time and get to know each other. 

Tomorrow I'm taking Sapphire to the Sun Dial, which is the restaurant that sits on top of the Westin. For those of you who don't know, this restaurant spins to give visitors a 360 degree view of Atlanta. It is breathtaking no matter the time of day. We're going tomorrow night...


Other than the weird dreams haunting me...this is my life :-)
