Very interesting. Like you, I too tend to jump in head first, and I am not known for my patience.
Kudos to you for putting in the effort; now you are reaping the benefits. If I'm being honest that's why I kept trying over and over again with my ex-bf, because I thought he needed to see that he could trust me, etc. But at some point I just had to admit that it wasn't about that - it was that he just didn't care.
How long have you two been together?
Sounds like a good match.
Nice that you are taking it slow and are on the same page.
I don't know if it is a gender thing, a timing thing (I have been divorced since 2008), or just personal differences, but I want the relationship. I want the closeness. I just can't find it.
I like my freedom too, though. But I'm willing to give that up for the right person (some of it, anyway). And marriage is still in the cards for me. I know some people have said they would never marry again, but I feel like I wouldn't feel close to someone who wasn't willing to marry me.
I'm curious if you ever see yourself being in a relationship again.
