Mr TTR was doing a lot of the things he does now with me in his life.
Working full time, playing hockey, hanging out and entertaining dear friends… enjoying his hobbies that include music, food & wine
He’d be dating someone… because he is naturally the type of guy that doesn’t go too long before some woman comes into his life
BUT he’d be quick to admit that since he met me things are different.
BECAUSE, I am different
I don’t hassle him about being WHO HE IS
I don’t freak out that he plays a lot of hockey, bangs away on his instruments into the wee hours, or hangs out with his guy friends doing guy things watching sports at our local sports bar, or going on guys weekends / weeks for golf etc
He says all the women he dated before me (and some marriages) wouldn’t let him be him.
Past relationships didn’t like that he played so much hockey (he was semi-pro for awhile)… or that he likes to spend weekend nights in the basement on his drums / guitars… or that he goes to the Pub to watch Hockey… or away on Guys Only Trips
In reality… he treats me like a Princess… and we have a fantastic relationship because he equally lets me be me
We are together almost 24/7… and I know that I can trust him a million times over… he just is an honest upright kind of guy
He has never denied me to come along on any of his adventures… I’m free to go watch him play hockey any time I want… or hang out with him and “the guys” at the Pub (sometimes we do do that… he’ll say “you should come up to the pub tonight”). Or even go on his Golf Journeys with him… although I’d never do that to him (mind you he’d be ok if I did… )
Without me in his life, he’d probably travel less (we both love to travel)… and he never would have bought the sportscar which we love so much
Lol, and a Cruise & Tuxedo no doubt wouldn’t be part of his lexicon…
But then again, I’d be a whole other person too. And I have to say, as much as I am who I am … I am grateful for who I am now with him.
Lol, and as of just a mere few days / weeks ago… I am proud to say that is MRS TTR
