Day 11: Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is
So if you all have read any of my previous post you know that I am in a new relationship with an awesome guy. We have only been together for 8 months but it feels like I’ve known him all my life. 4 years ago I would have never thought that I would be here right now, in a relationship with someone that I feel I am going to spend the rest of my life with. We both want the same things out of life. We both want to get married and have children and the fact that he sees himself marrying me and raising children with me lets me know that I mean the world to him. He is such a good guy. I know I finally caught a keeper. And to top it off he is not a womanizer like the majority of my exes, so I don’t have to worry about him cheating and tons of different women! Which is actually a relief for me.
My current relationship is different than any other relationship that I have had before
My boyfriend is really caring and protective. He loves making sure that I am safe no matter where I am and who I am with. Which is something different than I am used to but something that I really love about him. He is just extremely sweet and loving! I love how he listens to me when I am rambling off about work, especially on those days when my clients have had bad days. He knows how much I love the work I do and he is always there with a listening ear. He supports me in everything I do.
But just like any relationship everything is not peachy
There are some things about him that irritate the crap out of me sometimes but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. He tends to jump to conclusions sometimes about things and has the nerve to get an attitude. We have two different types of communication styles which can lead to minor and pointless arguments sometimes. Sometimes when I am frustrated and angry about things he is super positive. I know some of you may be reading that and saying to yourself “why is this something that would irritate her?”. It’s ok to be positive but sometimes I just want him to just let me be angry or frustrated. Like I just want to be able to vent sometimes and not having someone always telling me stuff. Nonetheless, I love how he builds me up and how proud he is of me!
I absolutely love this man!
Day 7: Your opinion on cheating on people
I don’t think that there should ever be a reason for a person to cheat on another person, regardless of what the person did. I think that if a person feels like they are about to cheat then they should have an honest conversation about how they are feeling to their spouse. They should give the person that they are in a relationship with a chance to know what is going on with them and to fix what the problem is. I have always expressed that to the people that I have been in relationship with. If they ever felt the need to cheat all they had to do was come and tell me and we can sit and talk about what the issue is and how we can fix it. If we decided that it’s not going to work then at least they were honest with me about how they were feeling. I think that cheating is a sign of cowardice. It shows me that you don’t respect the person you are in a relationship with enough to not humiliate them by cheating on them. One thing for sure what is done in the dark will surely come to light! You may think that your spouse or partner will never find out but they always do.
Day 6: The person you like and why you like them
Well, the person that I like is my boyfriend. We have been together for 8 months now and he is simply amazing. What I like the most about him is that he can be extremely caring and protective at times which is great! He is such a family oriented man and he makes me feel special and loved. He loves playing video games with me! He has a good sense of humor and we have fun together. He is really sweet and kind and sort of like a complete opposite of me in some ways. I am very outgoing, friendly and spontaneous and he is very quiet, stays to himself, and is a homebody. One thing I like about him being a little to himself and a homebody is that I don’t really have to worry too much about other females. Which is a plus for me, because I have dealt with a ton of infidelity in my past relationships. He is my dream man and I know that we will grow old together and raise a beautiful family one day!
Relationships are a funny thing. One minute you’re madly in love and the next you can’t stand the sight of that person. But you love them so much that you need them. It hurts when there comes a time when you need that person so badly but they are not there for you. In relationships, the other person is supposed to be there for you during your good times and your bad times. It hurts even more when they are not sorry and do not have a valid explanation for why they were not around when you needed them.
Day 1 – Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is
So I am currently single and have been for the past 3 years. Single life is quite enjoyable for me. It has many pros and cons. I can focus on my self more, do the things that I want to do and take the time to really know what it is that I want and what I will not settle for. My last relationship was a disaster and all I wanted to do was be alone. I have come across some really great guys (2 to be exact) but I was still harboring on to feelings of distrust, hurt and disappointment. Which would not have made me a great significant other. Once I became more closer to God and getting my mind right, I didn’t harbor those feelings anymore.
Trying to get back into the dating world was one complete fail after another after another. I got to the point where I had become comfortable and complacent being single. I am at the point where I would love to meet someone and develop a great friendship that turns into something meaningful (like a committed relationship) but I have just not had the best of luck.
I have faith that when the right person comes along I will know it and I won’t be single anymore. Until then I shall continue to enjoy being single and working on my career life and getting to where I want to be!
What is wrong with this new age of man?
They no longer open our doors or pull out our chairs.
They no longer give us the simplest romantic gestures and loving stares.
They no longer take us on dates just to spend quality time.
They no longer buy us nice flowers with a note “Just because you are mines”.
They no longer date us to actually get to know us inside and out.
They no longer write us beautiful love letters and poems telling us what they’re all about.
They no longer take us for romantic walks along the beach.
They no longer talk to us with respect when they speak.
They no longer call us ladies, miss or ma’am.
They no longer like to walk and hold our hands.
They no longer call to tell us good morning and goodnight.
They no longer show that for our love they are willing to fight.
The men who still do all of these things are a rare commodity.
But maybe there are more of you out there possibly.
