This blog is about a loving, committed long term relationship. We fell madly in love in July 2009, and it wasn’t long until we knew we would be spending the rest of our lives together. Throughout the course of our relationship, little by little we realized more and more that what we truly want is to one day live our lives together as husband and wife in a traditional marriage. Right now, we are the people and the couple we want to be, and our love is more than we could have imagined.
Now, perhaps you’ll want to meet the individuals involved in this.
His: My nickname for him is Superman, a very fitting pet name, as he is my hero, my man of steel, the one human being who can save me from any darkness. [SIGH] Enough of that, for now. I make no promises of refraining from being totally squishy and sickly sweet, you may leave now if you require such frivolous pacts. However, I will get back to basics.
Superman is in his early 30s. He’s very intelligent, very strong, loving, compassionate. He’s a tough guy, he’s a Mr. Fix It. My Superman is a dog lover, never cuter than when he holds an animal or a baby.
He is very open minded, and accepting of every walk of life, totally modern… But my Superman is, an old fashioned gentleman. He opens the door, he helps me up or down, walks on the outside of the sidewalk, and takes a very active role in our relationship. He is the planner, the muscle, the fortress, and my future husband.
Hers: His nickname for me is Princess. This is partially because of how girly I am, I believe, but it’s also quite fitting because he treats me just like his princess. I can see that I mean the world to him, and I am so truly blessed to be his lady love. I know, I know, back to basics for me too.
I am in my early 20s. A small town girl from Kentucky. I am a very girly girl. I love pink, hearts, flowers, silk, lace… I love all things “domestic” just like June Cleaver. But, seriously, very much like June Cleaver. I love to cook, bake, and decorate. I am also very slow to anger, quick to forgive. I try to see the good in everyone.
I am definitely the softer side of our relationship. I love that I make him feel loved, needed, and appreciated. I keep him balanced. I do what I can to take his stress away, and I am definitely his self-appointed cheering section. My part in our relationship, really, is to be the woman he needs. I am his love, his partner, and will someday be his wife.
