Never tell her good-bye when you conclude your last call/text/conversation of the night. Tell her you love her and wish her sweet dreams. And tell her good-night.

And 'love you...' isn't the same as 'I love you'. And 'I love you' isn't the same as, "I love you, Roseann. With all of my heart, I do."

Take note.

Words matter.
All of these, very true.

Fortunately (for me), it seems most older guys "get" this. :love:

texas is cool no doubt. i picture it like river floating, visiting local craft breweries, cruising to alamo drafthouse for more beer and retro movies, or maybe a drive-in. lots of tex mex and barbecue.

Someone needs to pour me a drink... What a week... Ugh.

In happy news, there are only 10 days to go! After that, the love of my life and I will finally be together. It has been a long six months of quick visits and long flights.

To anyone in, or that has endured, a long distance relationship, I tip my hat to you. It is the hardest thing we've ever had to endure. I can't even imagine not having at least some day to look forward too whereby the distance ended.

So, yeah, let's drink to that!

And yeah, of course, pour me another.

And someone needs to stop phucking with my booth with this coming-n-going... Someone needs to sit down and actually converse.

I think I've had my fill of OJ for the day... 24oz. screwdriver that was 50:50 vodka to pulpy OJ. It's meow 11AM and I've officially started today's consumption of Jack. I'm going to try and chronicle my demise by posting after every refill. Oh. Said Jack-n-water is also in a 24oz Solo cup since I may end up in the sauna and hot tub and it is bad form to bring glass to either one.

I'm in a shockingly good mood. Yesterday was the last caturday we'll be apart and today is the last Sunday we'll be apart. The countdown has begun!

Speaking of which, we had to have our kitty declawed the day before yesterday. I know, I know! But we live in a loft and she's going to have to be an indoor cat and we can't have her clawing up our leather settee.

Sad but necessary. She spent all day yesterday hugging Roseann and having her paws wrapped around her arm, etc. Chance is the coolest cat I've ever had... a cat that loves to cuddle.

I sympathize. My wife and I didn't even live in the same state until we got married. Every month, one of us was flying. That gets to be an expensive sport and is probably at least part of why I just gave up the game and married her :lol:

Dang, dude...remind me never to complain about the 3 weeks I'd have to deal with when my wife'd go to Tanzania every couple years. I always remember the first week running solo was great, but by the 2nd week, the novelty had long worn off. meow that I've got a kid, if both of them are gone, my friends tell me I just look kind of lost... :brokenheart:

Refilled and have managed to do nothing but lay in a tanning bed so far today. I'm not feeling productive at all. I need to get things done but feel like doing nothing.

@Bryan - yeah, it's been a long six months and I can relate. It was at least $1000 a trip just to be able to kiss her. Worth every penny.

Time for some silly kids input.

Recently, I have met the most amazing person. Over the past two years not a single person has made me think of them before I go to bed, think of them when I wake up and think of them just about every chance I get.

The reason being, my last relationship turned to shit, after 2 years I was cheated on and lied to. I have huge trust issues. And those trust issues are what made me fuck this up.

I never listen to other peoples opinions on people, I make an opinion for myself based on what I see.

What's in the past should stay in the past.

Question since you guys seem pretty knowledgeable

What would you personal classify as your deal breaker with a significant other.. Like in the getting to know you phase.. Your dating and you find something out.. What is it that you just can't stand that makes you say this won't last?

There are 1440 minutes in the day. Take sleep, work, et al out of the total.

There are X number of minutes you have to give.

Out of the remaining minutes; if that person is your love and you are their love... how many minutes did you give and how many minutes were you given?

Take that number and turn it into a percentage of the total day.

Are you okay only being important that percentage of the day? No? Walk away. You're better than that.

Directly to your question... why would you put up with one iota of bullshit during the 'dating phase'?!? That is why it is called dating. Nothing that is bothering you meow is going to go away.

As I said before... as a relationship intensifies so do the little things. If there is something awry meow it'll only get worse later.

That's what I figured... Where do you draw the line where like you said you gotta put into the relationship as much as they do...but with that when it comes to you do things a specific way and they do it different

Is it you that should adapt to the change or stay strong till they agree with you?

Compromise isn't 50:50. Compromise is 100:100. If both people aren't putting 100% into it then it'll never work. Sorry.

The notion of the 50:50 compromise to make it work is a farce. You'll spend a lifetime wrapped around the axle trying to figure out when your going to get back the 15% extra you gave on a bad day.

Doesn't work that way. You're either in or your out. I'm guessing by your reply that you are living in this 50:50 relationship world. Bzzzzzzt. Time's up.

stoly - you know better than to compartmentalize a relationship though...
you can't put a percentage on love.

some days it's gonna be 1%.
some days you'll earn 99%.

and that's where you have compromise.

one thing that's a deal breaker for me - stupidity.
while jack's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, she's still amazing. and her devoted percentage outweighs her 'lack of knowledge.'

Compromise is the key.... I'm in it to win it that's never been an issue never a doubt in my mind...I'm just asking general questions..I know the little things increase but at the same time it makes you change as a person to...adapting is what I'm about ...dealing with things sometimes can help too

Like phillyb™ said certain things outweigh the bad because they are the things that I care about more personally...but I hear where your coming from with if your half assing it it's not gonna work

Not saying I'm this person but there are people out there that have a reason to not be 100 from the start

I'm not trying to make love fit an equation that is solely based on logic.

What I am saying is that if both people give 100% all the time, compromise isn't something that is up for discussion. It just happens. In my experience, a discussion about compromise only comes up when one comes to realize they've been used, beat down, and... well, feeling compromised themselves.

Do Roseann and I compromise? No. Well, yes. But, no.

We do but it isn't a scorecard or something that should be thought about. We give our all everyday. I had a horrible day yesterday but still gave her 100% of me. If you want to split the hair you could say that the 100% I gave yesterday isn't the same as the 100% I could give the day before that or today.

She still got 100% of me. And I got 100% of her. Bad days, moods, situations are not the same thing as compromising who you are as a person.

I certainly cannot say that my opinion is right. We're 40 with an amazing 18 year old daughter. We've been apart for 15 years. I can only opine on my fucked up path and those I've met along the way.

On that note, I could use another drink.
