One year of Plus One

Posted by Daring Delightful Digital Diva at 11:50 AM
I've been divorced for seven+ years now, and while I've dated, we know how that can go - check out Too Tall Brian, Coffee Guy, Lawyer, and more ;) HAHA! 

I recall in all my singlehood days reading He's Not That Into You, Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man, and received dating advice from every person in the world, blind dates, online dates, you name it.  I developed RULES even, and tried to follow all of them.  Sometimes I didn't care to meet anyone, other times I wanted to find someone desperately.  I learned ALL along the way some very valuable lessons that I get to apply now. 

This is my one year anniversary with my sweetie and it feels amazing!  THIS is how it should be - not WORK all the time, daily!  Yes, some work between us, but daily just to function or get along?  NOOOO thank you!  It feels wonderful that this is simple, easy, and just so darn enjoyable most the time! 

I recall seeing a snippet of a talk show of all things saying it should be good at least 80% of the time - well boy do I feel blessed!  This man loves me, loves my children, communicates, makes plans, and is all about having us in his and his children's lives.  Period.  End of story, and I notice when he shares something with a friend, or introduces me to people he'd like me to meet.  He discusses big life plans and just so much more. 

There ARE nice guys out there that will open doors for you, pay for meals and drinks, take you on dates, respect your wishes.  I put this man in the infamous "FRIEND ZONE" for about 5 months before I got smart enough to date him myself before some gal snatched him up.  That was invaluable time to really get to know one another without the 'dating' stuff even getting in our way, as two people.  I guess he had to become my best friend before my boyfriend and I don't think that's a bad plan at all!
