Everyone likes to tell me that I calmed down/became less angry after Boyfriend or Best Friend and I got together.

I think they’re wrong, but my domesticity has increased. :/

For a while there I’d even started letting myself daydream about weddings and getting married… which is why I’m here. :p

For the better, I think. I”m more patient, more mature, more…centered, I guess? That sounds so cheesy, lol. But he’s been such a calming, wonderful influence on me, and our relationship has made me feel much more complete, I think.

Jason definitely balances me out.  I am quite a dreamer and don’t really live in the “now”, he helps keep me in the moment.  But other than that he accepts me for me, so I get to be the dorky goof ball I am and not try to be someone else.

I wouldn’t say that our relationship has changed me, but I’m definitely happier being with him.

I’m much less depressed, and not stressed nearly as often.

Interesting question!

For me, it’s hard to say how much was because of our relationship and how much was just part of growing up; we started going out right before my first year of college. Some things, like teaching myself how to cook and being responsible financially, probably would have happened anyways. But I feel like he’s helped encourage me to be braver, and to stand up for myself, to be less shy in general. I’m both more mellow when it comes to little annoyances, and more vocal when something unfair is happening. I think I take better care of myself now, eating better and learning to de-stress myself, because I know those things are good for him too.

He has calmed me down in so many ways.  My home is now a place of zen.

Yes, definitely. I am a lot more caring and compassionate in general as I now understand what it is like to love someone unconditionally. It’s like there was a small glow in my fireplace and when Fiance came around it got bigger and bigger and the fire is now spreading everywhere.

It’s great to see a similar theme among the responses so far. I’d have to agree. Mr. jduck calms me down when I’m stressed, makes me happier, and reminds me of what’s really important when I’m freaking out about the little things.

I think we both have changed a lot. Idk if it’s because we’ve been together 2 years or because we started dating, but looking back we are a lot different. It’s for the better, I think!

I certainly changed…my friends are still in the party lets get drunk its fun mode and I’m like I’d rather be on the couch or at a nice dinner with my honey…that’s not to say that i’m boring I just have different priorities, and I’m at a different stage in life that most people in their early 20s haven’t hit yet.
