You are with your partner for quite sometime, but the fact is, are you really "YOU" when you are with the person you love? see for yourself...or are you forced to stay behind a mask of which you are not really YOU.

Hello jean! I can say that yes, I am myself when I am with my boyfriend. Oftentimes I am even more myself when I am with him compared to when I am with my colleagues. I think I became open to him because of the times we spent together. We are almost a year now and we are still happy with each other so I guess that gives being comfortable and being ourselves to one other. :)

Acceptance is the word that you want to have, but be free, live it fully that you are the real you. If he/she do really loves you, she/he would love you even to the ugliest thing that you have, for LOVE covereth a multitude of sins and imperfections. =)

One has to be "YOU" when you really love the person when you are in relation with the person you love.

quite easy to say but sometimes its hard to fulfill when your up to that someone to please him/her just to attract and impress the person you like the most... later you'll realize you are chocked up in a situation wherein you are not truly happy at all..

I'm myself no matter who I'm with... Makes everything simple that way... I'm no different weather I'm with friends or if I'm with my girlfriend... My personality doesn't really change... Of course I do different things with my girlfriend that I wouldn't do with other friends, or vise versa... Me & my friend go out once a week to play poker at a bar... My girlfriend doesn't play poker, nor does she want to... Other than trivial things like that, I'm no different... I'm always me...

The best thing is that your partner knows what you really are...^^.)

This is one thing I am sure of...being ME! I have this principle in life, "love me for who I am and what I am or leave me" It's no good loving someone when I need to pretend, it only means "everything is a lie from the start" and such relationship won't last I am sure.

Thus, this thing called as immaturity usually is a big factor upon having such attitude of pretending. A manner of pleasing the partner for what they want you to be is not a fulfillment of pursuing a true happiness in a relationship.

It better to love and lost than never love at all...is my principle in life...I rather be hurt than to live a lie which is to pretend to be somebody else who am I not because in that sense you also don't know if your partner is also pretending just like what you are doing. In addition, to have a long and harmonious relationship is to be honest and open to your partner. Other qualities like understanding, faithful, loyal and others will just follow. As for me, it is the real me cause from the very beginning I lay all my cards on the table. Love me for what and who I am... if you can't then please don't make me fall inlove with you then later on break my heart.

One thing I do know is that it is easier being me than anyone else I know..I don't have any idea of how to be anyone/someone else...I like who I am and what you see is what you get...there come a time in our lives when you have to wake up to reality and face facts..we are who we are good, bad or otherwise.when one puts on a mask they also have the ability to hide behind that mask..its always better to be yourself..so people will know exactly what and who they are dealing with at all time... remember to love yourself and be proud of it...spend every day trying to better yourself as well as the quality of life for others.
