Nothing is perfect… so?

“Just as humans aren’t perfect, neither are relationships.” – quoted from a paragraph in eHow.com The sentence says it all. Nothing is perfect but we are always asked to be perfect for our significant others, to meet each and every criteria, not making any mistakes or to appear as close as they wish. But have we all not realized, after all these years, there isn’t anyone who could fit perfectly like to a T and it takes love, patience, acceptance, openness and trust to last a lifetime. I’ve seen estranged, flawed and near disastrous relationships and marriages but yet, those couples stay together, to work things through, instead of taking the easy way out. A very good example, my parents.…

Guide: 10 steps to trust building in a r/s

Came across this guide on EZine Articles while being moody and found myself agreeing all points of this topic. 1. Be predictable. When do seeds of suspicion emerge? When one begins to think, What’s up? Why is he doing that? He’s never done that before. That is so unlike him. He loses 30 pounds, buys a new wardrobe and comes home late from work. He changes his patterns. His behavior becomes unpredictable. You get the picture? Any movement away from predictable behavior can become suspect and trust can deteriorate. Focus on acting predictably if you need to build trust. Be consistent in what you do. This doesn’t mean you must be boring. If there is a twinkle in your eye…

My day as a (food) guinea pig…

Okay, not sure how many of you guys remember… I wrote previously, about a month back, that my duckie aka dear bf was gonna cook for me. Over the years, i have only had 3 guys cooked for me (excluding my dad)… Nothing fantastic but thankfully no food poisoning either. So when dear duckie announced he was gonna head into my kitchen and whip up a meal for me, which he exclaimed that it was his first time cooking for anyone (excluding his family)… and first time making cream based pasta… Instantly, i felt like a lab guinea pig… What else could i do, other than giving him the “eh… are you sure?” look and looking forward to getting food…

Us, a month…

Felt that it was just yesterday… When we were still bickering on msn and sms, throwing ‘wet blankets’ and teasing each other endless, as friends. Still can’t believe we got together… Needless to say, didn’t expect 4 weeks to go by, just like that. When both of us were wondering if we would be able to pass the 2 weeks mark. Lol. Yeah, well we did it. Being all sticky… unexpected. Today, being exactly one month, having him remember is more than enough. Furthermore he’s stuck in camp for reservist, plus i have to work… thus no surprises for him, heh 🙂 *Muackz* Happy 1mth anni.

Story: How we got together

7 days went by… A new relationship… And i’m still amazed, amazed by how it all happened and constantly asking myself, if it’s all real. As much as i believe in fairy tales and true love, i find it hard to believe that i’ve met someone who’d adore me as much as i adore him… needless to say, it’s hard to take it all in, when it’s smacked right in your face. How i got to know Freddy and how we got together: After 3 years of friendship with Nick and hearing much about Marky and Freddy… I met them on 15th March, the same day which i wrote my “Closing a chapter” post. Dear told me that he ‘woah-ed’…
