Relationship Goals

I used to be one of those people that loved a good “relationship goals” meme. Now, not so much. I realized that these memes were pretty unrealistic, especially for the types of people that I’ve dealt with. Not to mention, a meme leaves out so much detail. Too often we seek to mimic the lives and lifestyles of other people without knowing the background. You never know what people sacrifice for happiness.  I decided that I want to create and be my own relationship goals……

So around March, I met this guy. He was everything that I had been looking for. He had he biggest, most beautiful brown eyes that I’ve ever seen in my life. He was gorgeous. I was lonely and he walked into my life right on time. I knew that from the moment we met, we’d be on a life long journey.

Here we are now, nine months in and I still have the same twinkle in my eye as the day I met him. I appreciate him for everything that he has taught me and continues to teach me everyday. He supports me in everything that I do. He listens even when I’m rambling on about nothing and never complains. Everyday I’m reminded that there is no rush. We’ve got forever and a day to grow together. We learn something new about each other daily. We have the same taste in music, movies and cartoons. He doesn’t mind me reading out loud or blurting out random words while I’m writing.

He’s the most understanding person in my corner. He knows when I’m happy. He knows when I’m sad. He definitely knows when I’m not feeling well and just what to do and what faces to make to pick me back up again. We dance together when I come home on drunken nights. He nurses me back to health when I’m hung over.

I love how we speak without speaking. He wakes me up in the morning with kisses way before my alarm goes off.  We get up and go for strolls around the complex. He stares as I get ready for work. We both get sad when I leave for work. He’s my happy thought throughout the workday. As soon as the clock hits five, I rush home to be with him. The excitement in his eyes seemingly hasn’t faded from the morning…….and it melts my heart.

I love my dog Milo.

See how ridiculous it seems to try to mirror other people’s relationship goals?

By the way……. if you’ve read this blog in it’s entirety, I’d just like to say that you’re nuts but I thank you very very much from the bottom of my heart for reading. Your support doesn’t go unnoticed. You have no idea how kinda sorta difficult it is for a scatterbrained person like myself to put ideas down on paper, let alone online. Thank you for reading, commenting and sharing. Thank you for enjoying this journey with me. This is only the beginning.

  1. Ahh the relationship goals meme!! Very unrealistic, i agree it leaves out 99% of the rest of the relationship. My real relationship goals cannot be based on a fictional snapshot via social media.

    Keep up the great work!! I wouldn’t miss reading for the world!

    The only relationship goal I have are my parents. I’ve seen them go through hell and back. Through sickness and health. Richer and poorer. 36 years in the game and they still look at each other with the twinkle in their eyes. But ah Milo!! He’s one of the dopest dogs I know.

    I definitely agree on relationship memes being unrealistic. They always play towards most people’s ideas of what a good relationship is without any imperfections. It’s like showing you made the best omelette but not the ones you made with a piece of eggshell or burnt throughout the process of successfully doing it. I always enjoy reading your blog because you’re such an authentic woman and write beautifully. I really admire the journey you’re on and the progress you’ve made. You inspire me to be a higher me!

  4. Don’t you even get me started on this subject. I am aiming to focus on who and what I can control – ME! I have plenty of things to work on in order for me to be able to coexist with another human being. I’m not there yet.

    You know I love reading your thoughts. You are so real and transparent. You are unapologetic about who you are, who you aren’t, and how you are developing as a woman. It’s so refreshing, girl! 💛💛 I’m right here with you!
