I agree that people become more independant as they get older if they stay single, which is why Stasha's guy might be having issues adjusting to a relationship (even after 2 years) because he was alone for so long before. The older we get the more we become set in our ways-it's hard to change as time goes by, even if you want to.
Also, most girls don't like listening to men complain and rattle on about things either, I was just making the point that when you're in a long term relationship, you put up with certain things, make allowances, etc. It's not always easy, but it's worth it if you've found the right person. Did she say anything about going on and on about work? I didn't read anything like that. Maybe I missed it.
i will agree thats more or less normal to do, but who says all people are normal?
Duh (showing my age there!). I'm not saying all people are the same, and that everyone fits the norm...but I do think it's a lot more likely that this is a case of the rule and not the exception.
Thanks for your input on long distance relationships....but in my situation it's the only option. So we're both happy to get what we can until we can be together for good. Long-distance relationships definitely don't work in the long-term, but like I said it's a temporary arrangment. Bottom line-it's better than nothing (and please don't lecture me that it's not), and even if it doesn't work out, at least we'll know that we tried. I believe it can and will work, and so does he, and having the right attitude about it is half the battle. Getting sad and discouraged about the situation is what kills it.
Anyway, I appreciate your opinion, but I'll keep my own on the long-distance thing, thanks :) it's the only thing I can do for now
But you are really cute too. So you guys make a nice couple. I know Polish guys could be really sweet. What kind of acenstry are you? Irish??
Thank you :) I'm Irish and French on both sides-the red hair always gives me away :) Your profile says you are from New York-what exactly is your background? Ok, I know, Latina, but more specific? :)
