Are you in love too? Obviously feeling mushy today :)

There was a time when I believed that relationships are meant to be broken. Coming from a dysfunctional family, I grew up un-believing that genuine love do exist. Pathetic, huh!? But that WAS me ages ago. There's this guy who proved me wrong. Slowly, over the years, he showed me that someone is capable of loving you, and unconditionally at that. No ifs, no buts... It didn't matter to him at all if I've been through hell and back. He loves me for who I am...period. He tried his best, really, to erase all of my insecurities. Actually, with him around, he would make me feel as if I'm the most beautiful and sexiest woman in the world (ahem...eat your heart out, Angelina Jolie!) :D I believe God gives you someone who complements you. We both have our strengths and weeknesses but somehow, together...we're better persons. Don't get me wrong, our relationship is not that perfect. We do fight sometimes but we always make it a point to literally and figuratively kiss and make up at the end of each day. We've been together for 11 years already. We laugh together, we dream dreams together. Really, he's my lover, my man, my friend. Okay, okay...enough of this mushiness already. :) Don't say I didn't warn you though. How about you? Do you still believe in love and staying "in love"?

As I am reading your post, it makes me smile because it makes me remember of my boyfriend. Yes, I believe in love and staying in love. I am not a perfect girl and sometimes I tend to make arguments with my boyfriend but he always finds a way to give solutions with those. I admit most of the times those argument arises from my behavior of being childish and being selfish sometimes.Maybe God allows me to be his girlfriend because he has a character which is different from mine. He is older than me and he is the type of guy which is calm and sincere. We will be having our first anniversary and I guess the reason why we still stay together, in love with each other,-- is we have some opposite behavior. If we are having same behavior then I think we will both explode and that is not good in relationship, right? I think our behavior is just right for each other.

Yeah...agree on the "opposites" observation. :) We have the following as examples : He's organized, I'm not! Just see our stuff at home. Haha. He's always cautious about things (decision-making) while I'm the adventurous/risk-taker/impulsive type. He's a good listener, I'm the talkative one... and the list goes on and on.... But haven't you noticed the qualities of your partner eventually rubs off on you. :D
