Things That I’ve learned About Him After Being In A Relationship For Two Years
“It reminds me of that old joke – you know, a guy walks into a psychiatrist’s office and says, hey doc, my brother’s crazy! He thinks he’s a chicken. Then the doc says, why don’t you turn him in? Then the guy says, I would but I need the eggs. I guess that’s how I feel about relationships. They’re totally crazy, irrational, and absurd, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.”Woody Allen
He is great at birthdays, flowers and Christmas.
Never travel with him when he is writing. Even if he says “it won’t be like the last time.” It will. Travel anywhere with him when he is not writing. He is a great traveler.
He has excellent musical taste. If he says let’s go to this concert or hear this musician, I just say yes because I know that it is going to be good.
Always tell him he looks terrific when he does. He likes that. However, when an outfit choice is questionable and you mention it – then you are shallow.
He is a popcorn hoarder. I am a popcorn sharer. It is less caloric if you eat out of one box of popcorn. He does’not get that.
He is very generous with wine. Sharing a glass of wine is totally fine. Sharing a second and third glass is fine also.
He is not a casual chef. Each meal is a challenge and has to be the best thing he has ever cooked. Every dinner with guests is a chance to try some new difficult recipe he has never attempted, It is always delicious but a bit stressful.
My dog does not like him. He expects dogs to just like him. That is what dogs do. Not Banksy – he is jealous. It has been two years and Banksy still acts like when he gets back into bed he is attacking us and when he leaves the house he is stealing something.
He gets bored driving down the same street. He prefers to drive the long route if that is what his car navigation tells him to do. If he asks how should I go, it is best if I don’t answer because he will only follow part of the directions.
He doesn’t like it when I tell him to turn left three times and he already knows that. He also doesn’t like it when I don’t say anything and he misses the turn.
If I mention that I like a song, he learns how to play it on the guitar for me. That is really sweet. He is like my high school boyfriend.
Relationships are not easy but we work at it. I think it will turn out that by taking a chance and moving in together we will gain a lot more than we lose. Love wins.
