Being A Couple

I find myself in an interesting place. The longest couple I've ever been apart of is with my sister. Lol. For most of our lives we were know as "the girls". We've had our ups and downs but in the end we always come back to each other. Thats the nature of our bond.

Aren't we cute ;)

But now I find I'm in a different kind of couple. The male/female dynamic is interesting because my honey and I, we just don't think alike. Its a growing experience for me because things that I think are inappropriate Washington doesn't see why its a big deal. I get upset so easily and I have to realize that he doesn't think like me.

He frustrates me at times and I want to throw up my hands and walk away but u can't do that in a relationship. You have to try to work things out. You have to try and look at things from the others point of view. Relationships are work. Lol. (I know thats like a big, DUH!)

My sister and I are so in-tune to each other that we know when something is not right or wat the other wants to say before they say it. It doesn't even seem like work. But we have had our ups and downs. Plus, our sister relationship has taken years to develop. Its not really fair to compare the two is it?

I'm finding that I need to be more understanding, more patient, and give Washington a chance because....

He really cares. He cares about my feelings, is becoming acquainted with my moods, and he's trying and I need to try just as hard. No relationship is perfect. Its about give and take. Learning and understanding your partner. Growing with them. Being patient, faithful, and loving. He's willing to make things better because he wants to make me happy. And thats important. I have to return that effort otherwise wats the point of being a couple?

So, I need to give my relationship a chance to grow just like I worked hard to grow my relationship with my sister.

It makes me wonder wat is holding me back from that?

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Added pounds on my thighs :(

" I like ur face." Is that how men talk to women now? Wat kinda compliment is that? I like my face too. Wat happened to, "I think ur beautiful" or "Ur pretty"? Maybe i'm being critical but c'mon fellas. That don't move this girl.

Question: How do u, while on the bus, ask a stranger minding their own business "Are u bi?" Out loud no less. Smh. I'm not frowning at the question being asked but be tactful people. Lucky the bus ain't crowded. But the look on the girl's face when she got asked was priceless. Lol.

Do I Share Too Much?

Maybe I do. I got a comment on my last post saying that I shouldn't of written it. That my boyfriend wouldn't appreciate it if he knew I had. Was I being selfish or mean spirited when writing it? Was I really thinking about how he would feel? I guess because almost no one knows who he is (besides those close to me) I didn't think about it.

Hmmm. I think I'm gonna chill....

And think.


"I think you would neglect your family"

This is what my boyfriend said to me this morning because when he asked me what my top 5 priorities were I included church in the list. We spent an hour going back an forth over this and it just pissed me off even more. I did not need to hear that this morning cuz it jacked up my whole day.

It got me thinking to myself, "Then why is he with me?" If you think that I could neglect my own children why would you be with me? Then I thought, if you think that low of me why am I with you? And why is church the thing that would make me be neglectful of my family? I'm involved in my church but it is one of the many things I do. Why would that be the one thing that I would choose over my family?

Am I overeacting or justified in my hurt? Cuz, whether he realized or not he just gave me another reason to seriously question whether him and I should be a we.

Lord help me.
