Gah, first my friend/coworker gets dumped after four years and a house together, and now my sister and her bf are breaking up.
I know that just because others are breaking up doesn’t mean that it’ll happen to my relationship, but I can’t help but feel uneasy with all this sadness going around!
Can you bees tell me some sweet stories/nice things from your happy relationships to cheer me up?

Once upon a time there was a guy whom pursued a gal. Guy ‘doted’ on her, dated her, showed her what a NICE man could and would do. Guy says he loves her, girls says she loves him back. Guy and girl continue to date for almost 2 years, before guy asks if she wants to move in together. Guy and girl soon start working on making his house their house, while working to sell the house she owns. And then, hopefully, they live happily ever after!
That is MY fairytale version anyways 🙂 Do not think for one minute there have not been minor bumps along the road, but when I look back all the times we have shared, all the awesome times always come to mind, and the bumps have been ‘tests’/learning curves along the way, of which we have grown from!
I cannot predict the future, no one really can, but I can say that today I want him to be part of my tomorrow, and every day thereafter!

Oh my, that’s depressing!
Hmmm. Well, I am currently having a really tough time with my anxiety disorder after coming off of meds, and I’ve been a mess while trying to sort the whole thing out.
I apologized to my Fiance for not being myself and not carrying my fair share of our burdens lately, and he told me not to apologize, that he would always be there to pick up my slack, and he just wants to see me feel better and be happy. He said, “Remember, we’re in this for better or worse, and I’m here to make your worse get better.” Aw.
ETA: When we met and fell in love, my anxiety was completely controlled by medication, and I was this happy-go-lucky, carefree, fun-loving person. Now it’s a whole different ball game and Fiance has taken it all in stride.

We met on July 8, 2011 and it was love at first sight for both of us. We have never been apart from that time on. We were engaged in January of 2012 and will be getting married on September 22, 2012. We fall more in love every day and I can’t wait to marry my best friend and the love of my life! 🙂

Oh, yeah, that’s happening with people we know too – my brother split from his wife, our good mutual friends are getting divorced, and other couples we’re both friends with have separated recently. I definitely know that weird feeling of uneasiness.
Happy stories! We’ve been long distance for a little over a year after several years of being together face-to-face. Instead of it causing problems in our relationship, we’re stronger and more sure than ever despite the distance 🙂

I know what you mean. It seems that the minute I get married, almost all my friend and I mean almost all (80%) of them are getting divorced.
I just know that marriage is hard work and some people tend to give up so easy, I have been with my Darling Husband 4 years and married for 5 months. I would do it all over again, he is my bestfriend and not a day goes by that I feel like I want to change that. I pray that I feel this way 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 years from now. 🙂

My SO and I met in highschool, and recently it seems like the same thing is happening all around us. One of his best friends T was with her boyfriend for 7 years, engaged and everything and out of the blue during the worst year of her life (her dream got trashed by the earthquake in Japan, which added a semster of college for her) he ups and leaves here for a girl in Australia (they live in Wisconsin). Another one of our couple friends broke up after six years because she blatantly cheated on facebook. It makes us sad, but we’re still going strong six years a couple of weeks ago, just moved in together and about to get engaged. I also try to remember that our last couple friend from high school got married last year, bought a house, and they’re due to have a baby in October. I’m really happy for them.
