It's not for the faint of heart.

Welcome to my slightly silly, often odd, and mostly messy life.

What do you love about me?

It's a question I've wanted to ask BLT for awhile now. What do you love about me, exactly?

He tells me that I treat him better than anyone else he's ever dated. Is that love? Or are you just appreciative because all your former girl friends have been less than stellar? I mean it has to be more than that if it's going to last.

He tells me all the time how hot I am. And not just in the heat of the moment, BLT excels at showing me how beautiful he finds me. Which of course I love to hear....I am a woman after all. But beauty fades, we all know that.

So other than being hot and kind what is it? What has convinced him that we can make it for the long haul? I mean, I know exactly why I love him. His sense of humor, his appreciation of the little things in life, the fact that he's one of the most considerate people I've ever met. He's a good friend, and he's kind to his siblings and parents. He is patient with my girls, and he knows how to mix having fun with being a good role model for them. He makes me feel sexy. He says he's sorry if he makes mistakes, and he's an amazing listener.

I feel like an ass if I come right out and ask him. I don't want him to think I'm fishing for compliments - because that's not what it's about. I just want to know what he's feeling, what he's thinking. I need to know that it's real.

Does that make me needy? Ugh, I HATE needy people and I don't want to be that person.


  1. So what happens if you DON'T ask him? Can you just be happy knowing that he's there with you for a reason?

  2. Let the actions speak louder than words. Feel the gestures. The words and deeds match up don't they? I'm not sayin that hearing it isn't important. I'm sayin that we both know what it looks and feels like when it is just words....
