I learned that honesty is key. Having secrets from each other does not help … it only hurts us as a couple. Also, forgiveness in each other <- my grandmother gave this advice to us … it’s so true.

We are very silly too! Also, we are such great friends. I used to be a very independent girl. I had a few close friends but I also liked spending a lot of time by myself. He is the one person in this whole world that I want to be with everyday. We are both pretty drama free and we are both glass half full types. We focus on the good things and we don’t fret about the bad. We also don’t let the little things bother us. Yes, he leaves his wet towels on the floor and doesn’t put his clean laundry away for weeks. And I’m sure I have a few annoying habits but he very kindly doesn’t mention them. We have the same values and goals. We are a lot alike and the areas that we differ, we balance each other out.

Very simply put: he’s my better half, my partner in crime, and my best friend. I just love being with him. He makes me laugh everyday.

These posts are really sweet. 🙂 

I think our relationship works because it’s built on a really strong friendship and respect for one another.  We were friends for SO long before we got together, so I think that built a really solid foundation for our relationship.  Also, we make each other laugh and understand our goofy sense of humor, so that always helps.

We were friends for around 9 years before we started dating!  We met at my freshman orientation for college!  I’d like to say that I knew all along that he was The One, but frankly, I had no idea.  🙂 We dated other people and were just friends and housemates.  I guess, over the years, our friendship kind of grew into something more.

I think we’re silly.  We can laugh with each other.  I also think that we are friends first.  I think that helps.

Communication, communication, communication.

We talk everything through. We never go to bed angry (or we try anyway). Remember not to sweat the small stuff.

Helps to be smitten. He gives me butterflies and goosebumps when we kiss. 🙂

being open, not afraid to share. We’re still working on that because it’s not always easy for everyone! Also, I agree – being silly, and not holding grudges. When we get too tense, being able to throw a joke in their and let all the frustration melt away. That really helps!
