This kid must be a bit serious about my daughter. It’s more difficult to gauge now, since this relationship is a college romance, not something that is happening under my roof. So how do I know? What is it about me that has a keen awareness of my daughter’s feelings, that can be so confident in the intentions her boyfriend has for her?
He sent me a friend request on Facebook. Yep. Must be serious.
And it’s interesting. I live west of Chicago. His family lives in southern Indiana, not too far from Cincinnati. All I know about his family is the small bit of information that Alyssa has shared with me, plus what I was able to find out standing in line for three hours to get into a concert with him. Now I have a way to ‘meet’ his family, seen through the Facebook window. The picture I posted with this blog is one Alyssa posted on Facebook.. and it’s obvious from the comments his family have made that they approve highly.
So do I. He is responsible, like my daughter, evidenced by his recent appointment as PA for his dorm next school year — his sophomore year. Alyssa and Caleb are both music education majors, take classes together, study together.
And Alyssa is bringing him home for Easter. Hmmmmm.
So much can happen in four years of college. Who knows what will happen in those four years. I guess there is always the risk that he will unfriend me….
