How My Current Relationship Is Not Even Comparable to My Last
My boyfriend Dan is absolutely perfect for me. He is my best friend and I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life with him.
Yes. We haven’t even been together for 3 months.
Yes, we only met 5 months ago.
And yes, I realize that we still have so much to learn about each other…but I do know this: I am a million times happier with Dan than I was with the last douche I thought I was in love with…
And its taken me until now to realize how poorly I really was treated in my last relationship. He was a jerk and an ass. I put up with a temper and a macho attitude. He was ungrateful and didn’t show the appreciation necessary for the effort and things I did for him. Our relationship was so one-sided where I put in all my time and money and eventually went broke and was forced to get a job when I had been fine with my savings before him. When we met, he was a bum with no job, no car and no stable home, crashing at my friends house.
BAILEY WHAT DID YOU SEE IN HIM?
I ask myself that a lot and I can’t remember. I don’t know why I thought I should stay with him. I constantly told him I was unhappy and I wanted him to care and make me feel special. He’d do better for a week and after that it’d be back to square one. I was that nice girl dating a douche bag…how did that happen?
But all I can say is thank God that is my past.
My present is so magical that I don’t know what to do. I’m bursting with happiness and I am spilling it all over tumblr.
Dan gets me. He wants to be my everything. He wants to be the one to protect me and take care of me and be the reason for my happiness. He does everything in his power to make sure I’m aware of that.
We have never fought. I find this odd but I think it has to do with our personalities. We are both really chill and if we ever had a disagreement, I think it would be handled without shouting, without making it bigger than it has to be. We would listen to each other.
We have so much fun together. Every moment is never boring. We have had multiple long hours in the car and we never run out of things to say and do. We laugh and sing and talk about random stuff. He also has an adorable romantic side. We’ve seen sunsets on the beach, looked at the stars, went for a drive in the woods, and I’m sure we’ll have an awesome time with all the coupley fall and winter time activities. We love being in each others presence.
We came from the same place. We both grew up in the same town, in fact, 3 miles from each other. Our parents are still together and we both have a younger sibling. We are basically the same person in different families.
We want the same things. We are both finishing up a degree and are excited for the next professional step. We want the whole schebang: marriage, kids, grow old together. And thinking about everything makes me so happy. Our wedding will be the happiest day of my life. We want to travel a bit and experience things while we’re young. And when I eventually make him a father, I know we will be great parents. I know he will be a great dad. I am so confident in how much I want a family with him. We are both big family people and want to stay near our parents. He’s Christian and willing to go to church with me. We have similar taste in house design. We want big dogs running around. I mean really the only difference that is notable is his taste in music, rap and r&b. And I can live with that. :)
He plays hockey. How sexy is that? Pretty damn sexy to me.
Dan is everything I have ever wanted. He makes me feel special every day. He cares so much for me and I care so much for him. We are so compatable and have so much in common. I feel insanely lucky to have found the perfect person for me to spend my life with. Words can not truly explain my happiness because I’ve done it.
I’ve found The One.
