Sometimes, you just need a good reminder of how great of a guy your boyfriend really is. Let’s face it; so many of us can take our relationships and our partners for granted. We often forget that we are in really great relationships; some of us are unfortunate enough to only realize that fact once we lose these relationships. And you sure as hell don’t want that to happen to you. The more you grow to appreciate your man, then the more effort you’re going to put into actually making your relationships work.
They say that you never really notice a good thing until it’s gone. But that’s stupid advice. You must always know just how great you have it with your man.

Yes he’s so annoying I can’t budge him! I wouldn’t really want to. But he’s not rigid or uptight at all………responsible, grown-up, a gentleman, but wild fun!
Buuut…not open. I thought he was 10 yrsish older; it’s actually more like 20. Shrug, don’t care just wish he’d figure out he can be upfront already!
I feeL SO safe, SO secure, so GROUNDED around him.
Ya he’s a gentleman, at 50-somoething he damn well otter be!
I think..I think he’ll let me do shit for him when he finds out I can. I’m on wheels and he’s not.
He’s a responsible middle aged suburban dad…all he seems to do is work, gymbeast routine, cook for himself & kids, tickle himself to sleep. It’s ok, soon enough I’ll do the tickling. But I was giving him homeopathy coz I’m brilliant like that, and he quit his job and flew away to Istanbul!! It’s ok tho, he came back to me. I look forwarde to getting acquainted with his wick wild side…sigh…but I do admire the responsible hard worker too
He does believe in me, tkhat just melts me……you know that feeling like you’re standing on terra firma and it ain’t gonna cave in…like you can send roots way down deep? Supportive. Constant.
He does believe in me! He called me ‘Supergirl’. He thinks I can do anyuthing. Damn straight. I can. But I’m so super I can also let him do it.
I always talk too much. He always listens. And comes back with such thoughtful wise replies. He’s like my most flattering mirror.
Wellllllllllll…my mom got the cops involved (I’m 34–but it’s a whole situation…). So he used to spend a little time when he could but now I haven’t seen him in months.
And he’s real shy. But I’ll cure that yet.
But he’s mostly great because he’s HIM. Hopelessly romantic firebeast. Fun and responsible. Wild and compassionate. Sexy and spiritual.
