My boyfriend and I talked about engagement rings lately, and when I said that I'd rather want a $5 ring from some fashion store (because it doesn't make a difference to me), he said that this is absolutely not okay for him and that he'd not buy one for under $100. We aren't rich. We both earn minimum wage. I don't know how to convince him that it would make me more sad than happy if he buys me an expensive ring, he just won't listen. We have so different opinions on this, for him it's like a cheap ring would be a sign that he doesn't love me, for me an expensive one is like burning a 100 Dollar bill.
Sometimes I take risqué photos or nudes just to look at them and then delete them. It makes me feel cute or pretty to take those pictures and see that I can, in fact, look nice, and it reminds me that maybe someone else will find me pretty too. It helps me not hate myself.
I know that my boyfriend doesn't like the kind of presents I make - self made and a lot of small cute things rather than one big thing. He's just too practical for that. But I love making these kind of presents, so so much - I honestly do it for myself just as much (sometimes even more) than for the person I give it to. I don't know if I'm selfish for giving him "my" kind of presents rather than the kind he wants. (For the record: I still try to get him something he can use and enjoy.)
Some things you need to just let go. Controlling situations and people should be avoided, unless it's a harmful or life or death situation. Focus on controlling yourself.
Fuck you. You could have asked too. Fuck you fuck you fuck you. I gotta move on. You torture me.
I came home from a pretty disappointing day at work and found my fiance did all the dishes, all the laundry (including the bedding), swept and mopped the floors, and took the trash out. I didn't even have to ask. I was fully planning to do that stuff tomorrow on my day off. But he wanted me to be able to relax. And while he was putting my laundry away, he found my journal. He wrote a sweet note in it for me. No judgement at all for what I wrote, just love and support. I'm so happy I have a man like him in my life. Everyone deserves someone like him.
I wonder if you know that half these Taylor Swift songs you catch me singing along to are the ones that make me think of you.
At work, my crush hung his jacket next to mine. It kept getting in my way while I was working though, so I just moved it over and put it on the same hook as mine. So our jackets were touching all night, and now my jacket faintly smells like him. I didn't intend for that to happen, but my confession is that I'm glad it did. I love the way he smells. I wish we were dating and I could just wear one of his jackets, but for now I guess this is close enough. Someday I'll be brave enough to ask him out, and if I'm lucky, this small wish will come true haha
It's not your fault, if it isn't your responsibility.
I want my wife to feel special for our 10th anniversary. I made reservations at a fancy restaurant. Not sure what to get her. She is unlike any other girl I've ever dated. Flowers, Jewelry, and love so don't work on her. What would I buy for her or do for her that would make her feel like a woman? She's a Filipina if there is anything culturally unique that they consider romantic. I have no ideas.
