|New Chapter in My Life|
Ok so the question of the day is.... we all know that opposites attract, but can they function in a relationship? That is my dilema of the moment.. well actually it is not so much a dilema, since I don't think it's a big deal and it actually makes things a lot more interesting.
Needless to say me and my new boy are complete opposites it's pretty amazing actually. He is completely laid back, doesn't care about money, likes to have a strong mental connection with people, overanalyzes everything, brutally honest about his feelings, hates the corporate world and designer anything. Me on the other hand, work in a corportate world and love it, love designer anything, like to have an intense sexual connection with people (it's not about the sex btw.. it's about the experience... i like to talk about it more then atually do it), don't like to share my feelings, always dressed up- even if only going to the movies. So this makes for some interesting discussions... for example... last night I told him about the $300 Coach bag I bought for my mother so he informed me that he hates people like me. I told him I don't care as long as it makes me happy. He also told me never to ask him to buy me crap like that b/c he doesnt understand the whole label thing.. I told him I can perfectly afford to buy anything that I want on my own That was the end of that..hehe.. but it wasn't an arguement we were just being honest about ourselves.
Ok but at least we do have some things in common. We both don't get attached to people, both get bored in relationships (discregard the fact that I was in a very long one.... and his longest one was 2 months), both believe in ourselves and won't change for anyone.
But we did make it past the 1 month mark..which is a big deal in his book, since he generally dumps girls at that point. He doesnt believe in wasting time and he thinks that he can tell if things will work or not. Now if we can make it past the 2 month mark.. I will be his longest relationship, and that's pretty interesting. I've actually changed a lot of things about how I handle things... I guess I did learn something in the past 6 years. For one, I made it a point to meet his friends right away and always be willing to hang out with them, and I never get mad at him for not being able to hang out, or say anything about him going out with his friends. There was a minor setback which ended in me yelling in him being too tired to hang out.. but I got over that. I realize that if I want to have the freedom in a relationship, I need to give him the same. Which is not particularly hard for me to do, since I'm pretty confident in myself and that he won't find anyone like me. The fact that he found me after 3 years of not talking and swept me off my feet supports my opinion that there must be something that pulled him in.
Anyway, that is all for today.
