I am not normally prepared to share a lot about my relationship with Jack that is personal – just between he and I. But this month you will learn something about us. We tickle. We tickle a lot actually.
It feels great. If you have been reading posts about the epic saga that developed between Jack and I including silence. hostility and years of estrangement, followed by us making peace and starting out on a romantic relationship for the first time…you may imagine that the physical side of our relationship was perhaps awkward at first.
As I think back, I could cringe really. It started with hand-holding. There was a kiss, in Jack’s car. It took some time before anything happened beyond holding hands and kissing. But the night it did happen, it started with tickling.
Our tickling got out of hand….and led to one thing after another….and well, we have been tickling ever since. Now we are planning (and I use that word loosely because it is so hard to plan anything right now) to change the status of our tickling relationship permanently. So that we will be Mr and Mrs Tickle and be able to tickle each other happily ever after.
It has been an amazing year – really – I know there has been a pandemic etc – but to think that Jack and I have had a year where we could court without being in the public eye, without photographs of us appearing in the media. The timing has been remarkable for us. We have grown from strength to strength. It took just over a year for our lives to change. We went from estranged to engaged and were helped a lot by tickling.
