So I was watching “I found the gown” yesterday and one of the brides said she gets butterflies on her way home from work everyday in anticipation of seeing her FI. That made me feel bad/worried because I definitely do not get butterflies seeing my FI when I get home from work. I mean, we live together and see each other all the time!
Am I missing something? Should I be feeling butterflies?!

I don’t all the time, but sometimes if i havent seen him in a while, i’ll definitely get butterflies! or if he’ll say something sweet or kiss me, i always get butterflies!

I think it depends oN how long you’ve been together? Ive been with my husband for 7 years, he works out of town were long distance and I don’t ever get butterflies, haven’t since maybe year 2?

Yup. We’ve been together for 9 years & I still get butterflies when he does/says something romantic or sweet, or when I think about our future :). I don’t get butterflies as often from regular kisses, though. I guess that one faded with time for us.
ETA: I don’t think that there is a ‘right’ way to feel about your man. Some people get butterflies, some don’t. I think it has more to do with individual personality. Are you less of a romantic? More of a romantic? I really don’t see it being a ‘problem’ if you’re not feeling butterflies anymore!

We have been together for 4 years… I don’t remember whe I stopped having a lot of butterflies. I think I still do if we have been apart for a while, but not on a regular basis. I never really thought about it until now. :-/ or at least assumed it’s normal

@hollyberry4: I still do! FI and I have been living together for a year and together for two and I still get excited to see him every day! He just went into work this afternoon and will be home around 11 and I still get so impatient just watching the clock and missing him and waiting for him to get home. It’s like this every day with us ;P

I don’t get them all the time but I think I do get waves of butterflies at certain times throughout the week/month/year..
I don’t think you should worry about not getting butterflies though! I would say maybe it just comes down to a personality thing, like the way you naturally think/reason/feel etc

@HopefulSim: Thanks! I think that makes sense. I am not a very emotional person… don’t cry at movies or do the mushy “lovey-dovey” stuff. When FI says something overly cheesy-sweet I tend to roll my eyes haha! (But he does it on purpose because I react that way!) Works for us! I’m always happy to see him, and look forward to seeing him, but don’t get that butterfly feeling.

I don’t get butterflies in anticipation of seeing him (been together 5 years), but when he gets home I’m always happy to see him and give him kisses because I haven’t seen him all day. Every couple is diffierent, don’t stress over it

Nope. I am totally comfortable with him so I don’t get nervous / butterflies. We’ve been together for almost 13 years though. I DO feel happy anticipation when I’m on my way home, cause I’m always so happy and excited to see him even after all this time!

Every day when he comes home from work? No. But when he is sweet and hugs me or kisses my neck or talks about our future? Yes!

We’ve been together for 5 years and lived together for four, and I don’t get butterflies when I see him after work, but I’m always happy to see him. I work 12 hr shifts and usually don’t get a chance to talk or text him during the day, which gives me a chance to ‘miss’ him. And after a Particularly bad day, just seeing him makes my world all right and good again.

I do! When I am walking down the hall towards our place, or for no particular reason, even just looking at him sometimes, and we’ve been together over 6 years, living together for 2. I hope I never stop getting butterflies 🙂

Not usually coming home from work but I still do get them when he is being especially sweet!
