This next person that I am writing about for the appreciation section is my girlfriend. We have been dating for 10 months and all I can say is that it has been a magical ride so far… We met in a cocktail bar while my friend was visiting from out of town one of his old college friends. My friend’s college friend was and obvious still is my girlfriend’s cousin. We got to chatting about the typical topics and even made a bet over whether a gimlet was a cocktail or not (which she won the bet). We have been together ever since that and the relationship is still blossoming each and everyday that we are together.
I always thought of myself as a well rounded person and tried my best to include people in my journey through life. My girlfriend (we’ll call her sbr) has directly and indirectly reminded me that I am indeed a great person and still growing. She has taught me patience, timeliness, appreciating each day that we are given on this earth, living by the motto of, “treating others the way you want to be treated”, being honest with yourself on what you want to do in your life, and many other life lessons that I can and have had already blog post about.
I believe that our relationship is so organic that it seems we were meant for each other. At times people think we are married because we spend so much time with each other, however we do give each other space to spend on our own or with friends and family. Throughout our relationship we have helped each other in our careers, passions, caring and spending time with friends and family, giving each other encouragement and not being intimidated to let each other know when they aren’t being true to themselves in a nonjudgemental way, and the continued growth of our love for each other.
Some things that people may not know about sbr are that she is by far the smartest woman I have ever met; loves cooking (a great chef that doesn’t know how to make rice); is an attorney that doesn’t wear her career on her sleeve; has the sexiest voice God has ever given a woman; loves playing and beating others in board games; spending time with her girlfriends; takes care of a crazy dog to others, but is her baby; whom lives the life of a strong independent woman, however doesn’t vocalize that claim; has tons of friends that consider her as their best friend; and will always fight for whatever she believes in.
All of what I have said about sbr sounds mussy and a man putting out his feelings for the world to see, but I don’t care. All of what I say is true and believe that my life is a better one because of her being a vital part of it. Sbr I appreciate your caring heart, beautiful smile, irresistible personality, someone who always tries to see the good in people, passionate about living life, and I want you to know(which you all ready do) that I love you!
