The things you do for the one you love...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just got back from seeing "Crossroads" with my girlfriend. (She's still my girlfriend ). I'm pretty sure I was the oldest guy in the theater who wasn't chaperoning kids.

Gott in Himmel, what crap. Britney Spears has to be, all around, the blandest thing I've seen in a long, long time.

Does anyone have a few pounds of insulin I can borrow?

Why are you diabeti... oh I get it! har har lol!

Seriously, when you get married like me, you start to get more courage and put your foot down. I can't remember the last time I saw a sissy movie like that... But one thing I do do for my wife is go to country concerts with her. I don't care for them but she does so I tolerate them. Especially when some hotty hick chick comes on with a belly shirt... oh man.

Any way, like the Mole said, "Hey, you got to stop thinking with your dick"

How does Crossroads rate relative to shoveling (hypothetical woman we're talking about) her spoiled dog's steaming dung?

It's the little things that count the most, the ones the other person is not even aware of. If you are the only one who knows that you're doing something for another, getting no recognition for it, and you keep on doing it anyway, that can bring immense satisfaction.

For two people to spend most of their "free" time together, and not have irritating habits that grate on each other is impossible. What to one is very annoying, to the other is quite innocuous. You can be stubborn (which I have been) and say "It's no big deal, and I'm gonna keep (not) doing it." (whichever the case may be) Or, you can quietly change the behavior, and make the other person happy without knowing why. It's hard to notice something that doesn't happen, making this kind of unselfish action self rewarding only. If you do it to get something out of it, you'll be disappointed.

I love my wife with all my heart. She is the most wonderful person on earth, 100% of the time. Any other attitude is self defeating.

Hmm... no, I still don't get it. I guess I'm pretty thick today or something. Can someone explain the insulin joke?

It means the movie was so sugar coated and barfingly sweet that he'll need insulin to recover... oh never mind

Oh, absolutely. I just vented here instead of to her, which would have been incredibly selfish and tactless.

And I was curious about what other people had suffered through for their loved ones. Because, as you point out, everyone (including my girlfriend!) has to.

Well, it really is the little things. Trying not to trigger the frustration of a pet peeve. (There's another thread for you!) Stuff like making sure to close the (cupboard, closet, dresser, medicine cabinet, garage, microwave) [pick one] door/drawer. And recently, I've tried to make sure I'm the one who does another "everyday" task that's so mundane, I'm too embarrassed to reveal it, once I found out it's an irritation to her. I didn't tell her that I was "taking over", I just did. She probably doesn't even know it, and if she's noticed, she hasn't said anything. It's weird, but I get a kick out of doing something simple so that she doesn't have to do it.

A bigger one: going to her mother's family reunion. What a bore! All the older generation shows up, and about half of the younger ones, most of whom I've met twice before in my life. I go, but, to my shame, I complain.

Well, seeing as the Blue Meanie can't really comment on marriage and relationships (TBM is not married and right now is not even in a relationship
<img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" /> ) I'd just like to go off on a tangeant, if I may and add that 'Crossroads' was also the name of a legendarily bland British sitcom back in the 80s. The word 'Crossroads' alone is still enough to induce sniggers in most Brits over the age of 30...
