This Week’s Questions: What’s your absolute best relationship tip of all time?
Recently, as I was just surfing the Internet, I came across a really great article on Single Dad Laughing called “16 Ways I Blew My Marriage.” At the end, he also links to a companion piece giving you 15 other things he did (or didn’t do) that contributed to the failure of his marriage.
I found the entire things really insightful, not just because the tips are good but also because here’s someone who took the time to look at himself with a magnifying glass and really be honest about his mistakes.
Cash and I are coming up on 10 months together. That seems long considering I haven’t been in a real relationship for a very long time, but it also seems short compared to people who’ve been together for decades.
The fact of the matter is this: I’ve never been a relationship longer than 18 months. Cash hasn’t ever been in a long-term relationship…ever. We’re babies at this. I think we’re doing okay. I don’t question that we’ll “make it.” I feel like he’s my soul mate and I can see myself marrying him someday.
Still, sometimes I question giving relationship advice here. I don’t question giving sex advice. Although Cash’s current absence has led to a bit of a dry spell, my overall sex life has always been fantastic.
But today, I’m hoping you all can help me out. There was some excellent relationship advice at Single Dad Laughing, but I’m hungry for more. So, what’s your #1 best most awesome fabulous relationship tip (beyond having lots of sex…I think we have that covered hehe)? Leave a comment!
