I’m not sure when my relationship with Michaelyn really began. Was it our first kiss? Was it the first time we hung out together, just us? We were very casual and just kind of naturally grew into a couple. However, today it has officially been one year on facebook as a couple, so let’s just call that our anniversary. When we were lobbying congress with American Atheists and Amanda Knief referred to us as the gooiest couple in atheism. That’s all Michaelyn’s fault.
Before I go any further, I’d like to preface this by saying that I am the meanest atheist on the internet and will continue to be. That being said, I really like this girl. She’s got a wonderful sense of humor (see that image to the right? She sent me that). Michaelyn also has her shit together more than just about anybody else I’ve ever met, and I admire that. She’s brilliant and hard-working, yet humble to a fault. Being possessed of what must be a torturous amount of compassion for others, she is kind to everybody, including those who cannot benefit her personally. For that she is someone I very much admire. She’s also very pretty, and could likely have any guy she wanted on account of it. And she picked me. That fact has made the good days great and the bad days better for over a year now.
I don’t believe co-dependence is healthy, but every time I see her, whether it’s in-person or on skype, I immediately smile without meaning to. I enjoy her company, even if we’re just in the same room working on different projects and not saying a word. Texts from her still make my day. This is either a pretty special thing we’ve got going or the longest honeymoon period ever. Either way, it’s been a magnificent year, and I can’t wait for the next one.
And Christianity is still an absurd bunch of contradictory crap. Raaaaaaaawr! Meanest atheist!
