Let’s talk about growing up and relationships!!! Because I’m an adult and adults have grownup relationships!!! Well, most of the time any way, it probably just means they doodle cartoons of their significant other. >.<
The boyfriend and I are hitting our 1 year mark. I know some may not exactly see that as an accomplishment, but I like to see it as one. However, this is actually my first “adult” relationship, meaning, the longest relationship I’ve had as an adult. We sometimes argue and misunderstand one another but mostly we make each other laugh and we’ve definitely learned/are still learning how to see things from each others perspective.
I have defense walls that go up rather quickly when angered, I envy his patience and only hope I can learn to do the same. He even had patience when helping with my math homework last summer. We had just started talking and I had returned to my parent’s house, not ideal when wanting to start a new romance but we made it work. We would Skype, or just message each other and he would help me with my math…most of the time I didn’t understand what was going on yet he would still do his best to help me. >.< I hate math so much.
I haven’t really discussed our relationship in detail probably because of what happened in my last relationship. As if there is some bad juju that comes with blogging about my relationships. :/ But I shouldn’t compare previous relationships with my current one. One important fact is every relationship is different and you learn something from each one you have. I’m certainly very happy with the bf, he doesn’t like having his picture taken and that’s a bit annoying because I love taking pictures…especially of things that make me smile. I still manage to snap one here and there but since I can’t post them I thought I’d doodle instead. Again, these are just doodles, they aren’t supposed to be portraits or anything. They are creative expression and yada yada…
Any who, I had fun with this one, he sort of looks like a surfer dude…which is hilarious because he loves wearing those muted Hawaiian shirts. Once again, I’m loving the simplistic coloring and minting up my hair because I can’t have mint hair myself, vicariously living through my doodles! Yay! I also like painting with watercolor but this allows me to use any color. Time consuming, yes. But I like the end results.
Here’s to our first year together, I’m enjoying every minute of it…even the times I overreact and worry too much. Well I don’t like the worrying part, but I like it when I can talk to him and he cures them. It simply takes communication, you would think that I would keep that in mind once the over analyzing begins. Sadly, it doesn’t. If I were to give you any advice for when it comes to any relationship…communication. Do it.
No one is a mind reader, so we each have to learn things from experience. Care to share any relationship tips? I’d love to hear them. That’s all for this post, until next time…
