Only you know how...

During the long period when I was single-ish (let's just call it The Great Drought of 2004-2009), whenever I was forced (yes, forced) to talk about relationships I would always say the same thing.

"I just want someone who I fit with."

That's really an oversimplification, but, since everyone has issues, I wanted someone with issues that I could deal with and my issues were something that he could deal with. Like puzzle pieces, fitting together to fill in the empty parts in each other.

Every day I'm a bit more amazed with a certain gentleman's ability to handle my neuroses and not run screaming the other way. I don't know how he knows how to deal with these things, but he does.

And I'm old enough to know that I should NOT question it.

I totally buy into the "we get each other's crazy" theory on love. Cause we're all a little nuts!

Alice said...

Rachel said...

Oh Emm Gee. You are freakin' adorable. This also makes me sniffly and happy.

Marie said...

Completely understand you my dear. It's been two years and I keep asking myself why does he put up with my crazy?

Then I remember he has his own set of crazy that I put up with and love too.

You da cutest!

Anyway, this is absolutely golden...so true! Love is a crazy, crazy thing...and the only appropriate way to deal with it is to enjoy :)

That's the best part of finding someone that's right for you--realizing they can handle your stuff.

I'm in a drought of epic proportions. Self-imposed. You just reminded me that it might be ok to get back out there again.

You help remind me that it's ok to trust and put one's self out there again.

I hope you know how awesome you are.

Thank you all for the super kind words...I am so lucky to have friends like you.

Alice: I promise to keep it at a un-gaggable level.

f.B: yes, it does take time...nearly 30 effing years...but I'm here.

Colby: I may be one of the biggest relationship scaredy cats. If I can handle it, you can!!

12minds: I think we've discussed how much you've helped me...and a lot of my awesomeness is possible because of you.
