Opposites DO attract!
So I was talking to the Comedian last night and, for whatever reason, it finally dawned on me that we had a lot less in common that I thought. It's not a bad thing at all but I realized that over the last 2 1/2 years, I didn't see what those differences were. It's apparent that I'm a social butterfly. I love people. I will talk to a random person if they are sitting next to me because I just don't like the awkwardness of not knowing who's around PLUS you might learn something interesting. Like this weekend, I met someone who brewed for Cigar City, a brewery in Tampa with some great beers. Anyhow, the Comedian would prefer to sit at home and watch movies instead of go out on the town. He does accommodate my craziness but it's all about compromise. This was a HUGE adjustment for me in the beginning. Growing up, my mom used to tell me I had ants in my pants. I have no idea why I want to be out in the world discovering but its what I like to do. A good friend of mine said it could possibly be FOMO (fear of missing out). Who knows...
I have to honestly say though, I think the Comedian balances me out a little bit. I am starting (yes, just starting) to learn to enjoy being at home and relaxing. I have grown a huge appreciation for nights on the couch watching TV or movies. Just us two. No one else. It's comforting.
Regardless of the fact, we do share things in common like a strange sense of humor, sarcasm, and similar goals in life like when to have kids and what kinds of careers we would like to have in the future. The Comedian says something all of the time that makes me think.
"We spend our 30s fixing all of the mistakes we made in our 20s."
Crazy to think my 20s were as tumultuous as they were, however, I am grateful that maturity finally caught up to me and I'm able to see our relationship for what it really is. Just two people who want to live a happy life together. So simple... but true.
Here are some pictures from this past weekend, we had a blast! The 80s were the best!
