Gabe`s graveyard shifts have ended and he`s back to working during the day. Of course, this also means he`s called to work on his days off again. He always accepts because he wants to gain more experience and money for his trip. I`ve come to realize that his career means a lot to him, and he has long term goals he`s working towards. It`s part of the Gabe package, and I`m coming to terms with this. I want him as a boyfriend. I`d rather be with a hard working Gabe that doesn`t always have time for me than no Gabe at all. He`s doing it for a good cause, and I want to respect his wishes and goals. I want to support him with his future ambitions. He knows I`m important and he makes time for me when he can, which I do appreciate. He supports me too. When I said that I was thinking of moving to northern BC if I didn`t get a teaching job here, he said he would go with me. I was so touched when he said that.
I`ve never loved anyone like this before. I know him and I have had some rough patches, but in the end I always feel confident about us. Unlike previous boyfriends, I can`t really think of any sort of large issue that would tear us apart. Any sort of fights we have had were over small, petty things. Gabe shows me so much love and respect. I`m very lucky to have this man.
