Confession . of . the . Day

Confession: While I've been happily.happily engaged to B. for a year now, seeing photos like this...


Pic from Le Love

...does give me that little twinge of longing for that first few months of a relationship where everything is perfection. Like being able to look at a guy's stuff piled all over as "cute" and "charming" rather than "messy" and "cringe-inducing." Or not leaving the house for three days straight and feeling all glowing and happy as compared just lazy and bored.

Le Sigh, if only relationships could stay like that forever.

What's your relationship confession?

ohmyLORD i totally relate to you!!!! ugh. the place is a mess, we never do anything, why don't we have sex 3 times a week like we used to, what happened to foreplay!

boy, don't get me started!!!!

Natalie said...

i just started dating somebody and so it's all roses at the moment! however, it's also that early period where you feel like you have to appear flawless; for example, before i invite a. over, no dish can be out of place, or sock on the floor! how silly!

instead of it "just happening" like it did in the beginning ..you have to create it and recreate it ...but it works ...eventually :)

Don't you just adore lelove!?!? I am in total lust with it! It can definitely inspire you to be a little more cozy in the boudoir.....

My confession? I wanted to strangle my husband this weekend- all weekend long! Even his attempts at sweetness made me want to throttle him. I wanted to go for a run, he asked if we could go for a bike-ride together instead. I said yes to be nice, but then I was mad the whole time that I wasn't by myself, so I rode ahead of him figuring if he really wanted to be with me, he would keep up. THEN I was mad that he didn't...... Lame, huh? -e

Natalie -- Oh my goodness, not silly at all! I remember trying to find the perfect outfit, have the perfect apartment...everything needed to be just right!!

Emily -- I'm fairly certain we're twins separated at birth, or at the very least, kindred spirits! I do the exact same thing as you -- whenever I'm ornery, I give in sometimes, and then it just makes me more annoyed!

Ah, men, what you can you do?!

gangsta bride said...

haha you are totally right.
i used to think it was "cute" when he hadn't showered and his hair was all messy. now im like, "wash ur fuckin hair you fuckin sasquatch"

Thank you for following my blog, I've just recently started to follow yours, I think it's amazing!

Katy said...

Hrm. I've been with my husband for just over three years now, married for just over one, and things are still pretty sweet and easy with us. Not that we're never annoyed with one another, or anything, but moments like that are fleeting when compared to the hours we spend together happily. I guess we're just odd, ha!

Awesome Sara said...

i completely understand. we have been together for 5 years but it sure does feel like longer. i miss the days when we couldn't keep our hands off each other. *sigh*

The Cottage Cheese said...

I can completely relate. I adore my fiance, we totally "get" each other because we've been together for something like 8 years. But sometimes one misses the romance, the butterflies in your stomach and the smile that won't leave your face for three days when you run into your "crush", or that first kiss. Often the boy and I squabble over the most insignificant shit because we live together, work together, are always together - enough to drive each other crazy. But I wouldn't trade what I have with my boy for anything.

Amber said...

I had nearly 2 weeks of that lying in bed, messy and only leaving the house for food this summer. it was fucking awesome.

*sigh*

it was kinda perfect because he was only in the country for 2 weeks so i knew we would never get to the 'its your turn to do the dishes' etc. BUT it also meant that he kissed someone else with absolutely no shame at all. there is good and bad to both :)

Oh my, i do relate! My man is my best friend in the world, but how I miss the romance! The lust!
sigh!
