I know a couple isn't based on being normal or anything like that because I don't think there is a such thing as a "normal" relationship. But I am starting to fall for this guy and I would definatly say we would be a pretty odd couple and here's why.. I'm a vegetarian and a bit of an activist but his occupation is completly the opposite.. He's a trapper.. Wha do you think about this? Should I go for it (and leave my current man) or should I just; jsut well I don't really know..

Well..it depends. How do you feel about your current guy? If it's not really working out for you then you should probably end the relationship before you hurt him. But if you really love the guy you're with now, then I don't think you should leave him for someone you might kinda like. I always go by the saying "Never leave the one you love for the one you like, because the one you like will leave you for the one they love". Also, do you see yourself really working out with this trapper guy? Or would his job cause a bit of a moral dilemma for you since you're a vegetarian. Seriously think about your options to find out which one would be best. If you have a perfect relationship now, would you be willing to lose it to try and start something new?

I really like that quote! As far as my current relationship we're kinda an odd couple as well and we both love each other but I think we both have things we need to work on to make our relationship more meaningful.. And since my mom doesn't like him what so ever I don't really get to see him much other than school.. As for the trapper and the conflict between my beleifs and his job would be really awakward and strange.!. Thanks for making me really thing about everything more!

Opposites do attract! There are plenty of odd couples that work out. My mom works with a little person so she's not even 4 feet tall and her husband is about 6 feet! I've also seen odd couples that you would never imagine being together and they're happily married. You can't help who you fall in love with and you shouldn't let other people dictate that either. Ultimately, it's your decision on who to be with even if other people don't like him. I know that if my mom didn't like my boyfriend I would tell her too bad. It would make me feel bad to know she doesn't like him, but I wouldn't want to lose someone that I love. Just think things through before you make a decision. Maybe try talking to your current guy and see how he's feeling in your relationship. He may not realize that there's things he needs to work on and if you bring it to his attention he'll definitely try harder. Guys are not mind readers. Just because something bothers you doesn't mean he'll know what it is when you're acting funny lol. If he's really good he'll be able to pick up that something is wrong and he'll ask you about it. But the key is to actually tell him. If you don't, he's eventually going to get frustrated and give up on trying to help you and then you're both miserable in the end. So maybe sit and talk with him first and see how he feels about your relationship

Thank you so much for all of your advice and I think me and my man should really take some time and talk everything out, it would probably make us a bunch closer. And I think I'm going to just going to stick with what I have for now even know my mom doesn't really approve and all.. But I do really love him, he's my baby. And under 4 feet and 6 foot.. that's crazy! I'm only 5 foot and being with a guy who is 6 foot sometimes is wierd and it means tip toes when I want a kiss. lol

SydneyJ, I think you should think about this a little more. I wouldn't want you to leave your current man for this other guy and then it doesn't work out. Talk more to this guy to see where it could lead. I've seen alot of odd couples work out (: Just don't do anything that you'll eventually regret. You don't wanna lose both guys. Whatever choice you make, pleaseee make sure you are happy with it. Your happiness is what matters the most.

Whatever you feel on doing, just do it. I can't really give an advice on this one, I don't give good advice when it comes to love and relationship. I suck at it. Although what I understand is you gotta do what you gotta do.

hello, Okay, you go to the other man and live your current boyfriend because you will never fall for someone if you are contented and happy with your boyfriend. So, the best thing here is tell it to your boyfriend that you fall to other because of this and that.

ask your self first if who would you prefer to be with,,, if u r not happy on your current today.. and if you are more enjoying with this new guy i think you should go where you want to be..i think if you guys are opposite well i think that would be exiting.. i hope you would enjoy on what decisions you are going to do,, gudluck!
