Less than two months ago, Nik and I embarked on Operation Romance with all of our enthusiasm. I was confident I wouldn’t want this to turn to a “real relationship” at any point, and we were both excited for what we were sure would be, “just an experiment.”
However, somewhere along the way, we forgot about the experiment and nestled into a real relationship. In retrospect, it was inevitable. As a person, Nik is absolutely amazing. We have a lot in common. We share similar values and want the same things out of life. We get along fabulously.
And so, inevitably, we fell in love with each other. We stopped being interested in examining and analyzing relationships. We started discussing a future that extends past the experiment.
These days, we are happy just being together as a real couple, despite the unconventional beginning to our relationship. It is a failure of Operation Romance, but the beginning of a long, exciting relationship for Nik and I. It would be superfluous to continue writing about our relationship, so this is our last entry. We are grateful that you started the journey with us, and hope that you will support our love the way you have supported our experiment.
