We always have random little things that we joke mean we’re perfect for each other. For example, I love the inside, gooey part of cookies and he likes the crunchy outside part and I fit perfectly into his arms when we’re cuddling! 

We’re really just a perfect match – we’re both total hermits and we love to just hang out and watch tv…neither of us is big on going out a lot. We also both LOVE to cook and we’re total foodies. We’re both addicted to HGTV/DIY Network/Food Network, etc.

On a more serious note, I am much better at handling stress than he is – when he’s freaking out and overwhelmed, I’m always calm and I can get him to de-stress. He can always do the same for me!

I think we’re perfect for each other because we NEVER fight.  Not that we don’t disagree, but it seems that we choose our battles to the point that we have never just “had it out.”  Usually when we disagree, we size each other up.  If I think it’s more important to him, I won’t argue further.  Or if he’s having a rough day or if I just want to be good to him.  He does the same thing.  The result is the most harmonious relationship I have ever been in!

From the SO’s mouth.. my mom asked him this at dinner the last time he was here.. and this is what he told her: “after I broke up with my ex.. I decided to make a list of 99 things I wanted in a girl.. and I refused to date anyone unless they met all 99 things.. and she meets all 99 things.. shes perfect for me in every way”.

Hr’s very down to earth and my head is always always in the clouds. He keeps me grounded, but I help him think outside the box.

We’re also both creatives (I’m graphic design & he’s going to be a music teacher) so we have similar ‘creative’ thought pocesses which helps a lot. He just gets me :).

We share the same core values, but we have completely different personalities and ways of thinking.  We disagree on many topics, but we have learned to listen to each other and learn from the other person.  I really like that I am marrying a person who in some ways is very different from me – it has changed my perspective on the world (and I know that I have rubbed off on him too 🙂

Hmm.  That’s a good question.  We’re very compatible in obvious ways, but why exactly he loves me and not other people he’s compatible with, I haven’t thought about it much.  I think maybe I’ll ask him.

aw cute.

Well I have made him break out of his shell SO MUCH. Like before me he was such a goody two shoes. He never broke rules, went to church all the time…lol. then he met me, the cussing, carefree, independent, spirited girl he ended up falling for. It’s so funny, we joke that I corrupted him, but it’s cute. He balances it out too, he helps me me the absolute best that I can be (while still keeping my unique personality!).

I am really high maintenance, and easily upset – he is soooo patient and laid back. I can stress about a million things and he just listens to me rambling and complaining and worrying, then just says, “I love you.” He really makes me calm down and he’s patient with me, which is HUGE because I know I’m not easy to be patient with!!

I love him so much. he is so perfect for me… someday I hope I can be just as perfect for him.

  • Wedding: September 2010

We spent the first year of our relationship having only one date night a week (no overnights) with the occassional weekend away because his 11 year old son had just come to live with him.  I met his son a year after we began dating and the three of us moved in together six months later.  It has always been my fiance, me, and his son.  I was willing to share him from the beginning.  I wanted his son to rest assured that I was never going to take his dad away.  I know my fiance appreciates that I was able to take things slow when it came to his son.  On the flip side, my fiance is very understanding about how close I am with my mom and my sisters and brothers.  He never bats an eye when I jump for them.

I think we’re both just crazy enough to deal with each other.. lol.  We’ve both had rough childhoods and dealt with a lot of loss so we can really relate to each other.  And we push one another to set goals and work to achieve our dreams.  We are sarcastic and love to make fun of each other.  We share the same interests.. education, cooking, photography, etc 🙂

He loves how we think of the same stuff at the same time, e.g phoning each other at the same time, saying the same thing at the same time, or knowing EXACTLY what the other is thinking when something is said. I’ve said before we both saw the yucky parts before being together, so we knew we would support each other through thick and thin and thicker!

On top of that he’s said to me that when he was with me he just knew that this is what it’s supposed to be. All the fussing around with dating and heartbreak and whatever leads you to where you need to be. He really worried himself when he realised he loved me, it was only a week in to being together (we were friends for a couple of months first) and he KNEW, and he was so scared about if he told me and lost me. Luckily for him, I’d realised the same (see what I mean about timing?) and the rest is history.

An interesting extra: we fell for each other at the exact same moment. I was teaching him my party trick (shameful….how to tie a strawberry lace in a knot with your tongue), the concentration on his face as he tried to do it was just adorable; i thought ‘you’re sat here doing this ridiculous thing here with me and you haven’t bolted out the door?’. He said watching me trying to teach him to do something so mad and having the patience while he got it made him think I was the girl for him.

We have the same dreams & goals for the future. We are both spiritual and inspire each other to become better. We both want to live life to fullest and don’t want to miss out anything life has to offer…he is the only man that has shared in my dreams to live overseas and travel the world and that is what we do!
