His and Hers
So, like, can we meet in the middle? Cause the way my personality is setup…
#2 can be a doozy…
- Not Resolving Conflict It’s become pretty popular to avoid saying “I’m sorry” at all costs these days. This may work for you if you’d like to make your partner feel terrible, but owning up to your mistakes will be worth it for both of you.
- Can’t Handle Distance It is not uncommon for someone to have a job that takes them far away at times. Some people are not cut out for a relationship like this but will make the mistake of trying to stick with it anyway. It may seem brutal to break it off because you can’t handle the distance, but in the end you will only be saving each other from years of misery.
- No Romance Sure, feeling like you’re in a chick flick can be pretty cheesy, but sometimes it’s those cheesy little moments that really show your partner that you care.
A marriage proposal for the ‘thrill-seekers’:
“Lindsay is in fact the girl in the front and she did say yes, I would know because I was holding up one of the signs! The guy right behind her is her fiance, Chris. I carried a backpack around all day with the signs folded up in the laptop sleeve along with snacks and jackets so she wouldn’t suspect anything. The 5 of us behind her practiced holding the signs the day before so they wouldnt block each other from view. As soon as we were far enough on the ride, I passed out the signs (which were numbered so we had them in the right order) one by one and we hid them until we started going up the hill to the drop. As soon as we hit the peak, we all pulled out the signs and held them up until the pic was taken, then immediately passed them to the back of the log where I re-hid them in my backpack. She didnt see what happened until they posted the pic on the screen at the end of the ride! The actual ring was hidden in the backpack as well to keep it safe. As soon as we got off the ride he gave her the ring and we purchased the pics! We actually planned the whole thing and practiced so that it would be a complete surprise to her and pulled it off with a great picture to remember it by and a funny story to tell!” (via bedazzledbodybag)

This morning D. woke up before me and I heard him moving around for a few minutes before I opened my eyes. He was crouched next to the bed and he planted a kiss on me. “Good morning,” he whispered, smiling.
“S., this is how it’s supposed to be.” I was sort of in a daze and just smiled back, but as he got in to bed and snuggled against me, I thought more about that phrase. This is how it’s supposed to be, I told myself. This is the most serious, adult relationship I’ve ever been in. And something about the past few days and seeing D. really listen to my concerns and make a concerted effort to tweak his behavior has really made me realize that what we have is pretty damn rare…and pretty damn good.
