Quoting Lindsay*J:" And that's what I need to remember-our lives are still seperate and this is how we like it. Looking ... [snip!] ... his past relationships so we're ensuring that we still keep our personal lives intact. It's such an adjustment though lol."
To me, I find that really, really important.
With myself, there will always be "us" but I am still me and he is still him, so we also make time for our own interests and such. Basically, instead of making everything a couples thing (which I know toooonnnns of couples who do). For example, if I want to see a movie that I know wouldn't interest him, at this stage in our relationship I wouldn't even bother asking him to go, I would just set a date with my girlfriends to see it, lol. And same goes for him....imo its better to do things separately than to always do things together (b/c you're not always going to like the same things)
Plus, who's kidding who, I'd f-ing strangle my husband if we were always together, or he'd probably push me off a cliff, lmao
And the same goes for talking with one another, if I'm really busy or he's really busy, then stopping to tell the other about our day would just take away from the busy person getting done quicker.....so if we go a day or two without talking with each other, we both know its only to help the other get their smurf done
