Yours is the first face that I saw. I swear I was blind before I met you.

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope everyone had a great time with their loved ones and got to enjoy some time off work like I did!

This post is inspired by a married couple that I have had the pleasure of witnessing recently that made my jaw literally drop in awe of the romance I noticed still fresh in their relationship. At first I assumed they were newlyweds and shortly after I discovered that they have been together for years. So I took it upon myself to ask the husband his opinion on what it is that makes them still so in love to this day.

It’s funny because I come from divorced parents and a lot of the married couples I see nowadays are remarried or separated etc. So it is definitely rare to experience this fresh type of love I see when I see this couple together. And even when I asked him about it, and he was sharing how they met and got together, his eyes just lit up and it was really amazing. He shared with me that a lot of it is faith but also just making one another a better person. He stated that he is such a big kid and she embraces that but also brings out the adult in him and that he brings out the kid in her. They compliment each other in such a way that it just works. And it makes sense. I mean I have seen it with my own two eyes. Or that when he gets home from a rough day maybe after sitting in traffic and she asks how his day was and he snaps “oh it was horrible I just sat in traffic for two hours bla bla bla” and most women might let that get to them like they’re taking it out on them and get upset but she just says “okay well I’m sorry about that but that isn’t my fault” and he thinks “wow you’re right it’s not your fault”. It was really remarkable to get this point of view for myself, as most of you know, my idea of relationships lasting is quite negative. He also shared with me that they went on a few dates and then he was moving and a year later when he kne we was moving back he knew he had to call her because she was so fun, and she was dating someone else, so he told her when it ends he will be taking her out. And he did.

It was all so very romantic and inspiring so I had to ask his permission to share it in this blog. I felt I owed my readers a positive blog on love and relationships especially in the midst of the holiday season. Lol. I hope you all enjoyed this one and I hope you all get the chance to experience this one-of-a-kind type of love. I know when I see these two together it gives me hope that maybe one day I will meet the one for me and it will be just as full as romance and love as this one is!

  1. I know that one of your old boyfriends has a baby and is engaged to a new girl. That recently happened to me with an old boyfriend of 3 years and he won’t even acknowledge me or anything anymore. It really hurts because I know we once meant something to one another. It just tears me apart that he can’t even say hi or reply when I have no intentions with him sexually. We were friends until this new relationship. Do you think what he’s doing is “right” ? I just don’t know what to think anymore about the situation.

    • One of my old boyfriends has a baby and is engaged? I can only assume you’re speaking about Carrick because I have heard from some people that he does have a baby but I had no idea he was engaged. However, Carrick stopped acknowledging me long before that, because of how badly our relationship ended. In your situation it would appear that everything seemed to end on civil terms between the two of you considering you were able to remain friends after. Then when he got a new relationship he felt it was unfair to his new GF and to you if he were to continue having any communication with you. Either that or his new GF asked him to stop talking to you. In any case, I know it hurts because you two did have something more than just sex, you were friends and and you care about each other. When things go about like this it makes you feel as if it wasn’t more than that because if you were good friends than why couldn’t you still be friends without the suspicion of ulterior sexual motives. In the question of do I think it’s right, no I do not necessarily think it’s right, I think that people should all be able to act like adults and accept things being over and move on and remember that we don’t have a lot of time on this earth, friendship is important whether they’re an ex or not. BUT if it is what he feels needs to be done to make it easier for his new relationship to work than you need to be fair to him and give him a chance to do that. Because that’s what a friend would do. It sucks and it hurts but if you are his friend you want him to be happy even if it means you have to hurt in the process. And if his new relationship doesn’t work out and he comes back to you then you don’t make him feel bad or say “i told you so” or make it about you, you simply be there for him as a friend and maybe try to come to a better understanding so that the next time one of you gets in a relationship the other one doesn’t have to get cut out. Hope this helps!
