Miss_Mae:  Just want to say I can relate. My DH has been gone for over two months for military training and I feel so proud of myself when I carry out the trash or carry in the big cases of water. I unclogged a drain the other day and burned the giant pile of cardboard boxes out back! Lol!

“I dress as I please, but i think if you’re in a loving intimate relationship, thongs can’t help but change”

I enjoyed this typo.

I don’t miss being single at all. I hated dating! It’s such a relief to be married. As far as clothes, I do dress a little more conservatively now than before but that has nothing to do with being married. That has to do with getting older and having my second child, things just didn’t bounce back like with my first baby haha! 

As for cooking, my husband can’t cook toast even so he eats what I feed him. I love Chinese and he hates it but I do still make a few Chinese dishes every once in awhile and he doesn’t complain because I make a lot of his favorites pretty often. Marriage is give and take, not give give give.

halfling:  nope. never. i see how hard it is to find someone today and the way people meet today are so different and something I wouldn’t be comfortable with (i.e. meeting online, tinder??, FB, etc)

Hoho hell no! I was single for a long time and dated a lot in my late 20s so been there, done that. I’m way too happy now to think about being single ever again 🙂

I love being married and wouldn’t change that but there are definitely some things I miss about living on my own. When it was just me I could buy myself treats when I went shopping like a bag of chips and it would stay in the cupboard a few days and i would last for a while once opened, now if I buy something like that it gets eaten right away and the bag is gone the first day. Not a big deal but sometimes I just get a craving for a snack and like having something around for those times but it’s jusst not possible anymore! He also likes to eat things like bread and cheese all the time as snacks which drives me nuts, I buy lots of fruits and veggies for snacks and try my best to make meals everyday yet he always fills up on these things. I just hate when I want to make myself a pieve of toast and find that he’s eaten all the bread or when I want to use cheese for a meal but he finished off a whole block of cheese! We are both shift workers so i still get alone time when he’s working nights which I do enjoy sometimes. I love him but it’s nice to have a night to myself every once in a while just to do my own thing

There’s always a trade off. I’m someone who needs their alone/veg time and I miss that a lot. Obviously I wouldn’t have it any other way but still. I don’t dress any differently though…

I don’t miss being single at all. When I met my husband, my life felt complete. Maybe I am just very fortunate that we’re pretty alike when it comes to eating, living habits, spending, etc. All the things you mentioned. I’ve never felt restricted because of him, or that I need to be more mindful of his feelings because we both just want each other to be happy. If anything, I feel more me and myself when I’m with him!

halfling:  Literally the only time I miss being single is when I have to share the ice cream with him in the freezer. Besides that, no, I never miss it. I did not enjoy being single. I dress the same, lust after actors/fictional characters the same, eat whatever I want (if I want something DH doesn’t want to eat–I eat it anyways and he will eat what he wants), and I buy whatever I want (within reason–anything aboe $25 is quickly run by him, but he does not give me permission). DH and I are a unit, however, I still go out with my friends and he with his and we still enjoy our hobbies without the other on a regular basis.

I get being happily married and still missing some things about your single life.

While I love the falling asleep next to and waking up next to my husband part, I miss actually sleeping in my own bed. When my husband is gone, I use all the pillows, roll around in bed all night, and sleep right in the middle. It’s glorious!

I also miss only having to worry about my schedule. My availability only depended on my schedule, but now it depends on his schedule and family’s schedule as well.

halfling: i definitely do not miss being single. at all. i am so happy i finally found my true partner. i never feel restricted or like i am missing out on anything

however, definitely agree with the food thing. my Fiance is pretty specific about what consitutes “dinner”… it has to be like a full blown hot dinner… pasta with a protein or like, meat, potatoes, veg type thing. whereas, i could eat hummus with carrots and some cheese plus a glass of wine and be super happy. luckily, he has no problem cooking for himself and/or us and i do genuinely enjoy cooking for him. but, i miss my old eating habits and it’s really hard to be on a diet with him lol. plus, he’s a big dude, so i can totally relate to a big grocery bill.

I don’t miss being single, but then again I didn’t really “give anything up”. If I want cereal for dinner, I tell DH that’s what I’m doing and he can fend for himself. I do all my weird crazy things with him there – singing, dancing, talking to the pets like a crazy person. I dress the same, I go out with my girlfriends or work buddies when I want.

We’re also very similar in our habits, so there’s not a lot that we don’t enjoy doing together. We have similar desires in terms of how much time we spend with our friends. Funnily enough we also have what we call “brain waves” were we’ll just sort of look at each other and know that we want to be lazy and order out. We do all our weird things together and it makes it more fun I guess haha.

But we both value our alone time so we also have an understanding when one of us says “hey I’m going to go upstairs” or whatever.

Not married, but living with my SO. I can DEFINITELY relate on the grocery bill/cooking thing! It was sooo much cheaper and easier when I was living alone! 🙂
