A Thank You Note To My Boyfriend For The Best Six Months

A Thank You Note To My Boyfriend For The Best Six Months

Happy Anniversary!

A note to my boyfriend for the best six months

I spent my whole life fantasizing over my “perfect” dream guy with a list of “unrealistic” expectations that seemed so important to me. If they weren’t perfect, I wasn’t interested.

That was until, I met you. You’ve taught me that our imperfections are what make us perfect. You’ve showed me the value of life in even the littlest things you do for me.

It’s crazy to think that only 6 months ago we barely knew each other. 182 days you weren’t my best friend, and 4,380 hours ago you weren’t the love of my life. You have helped me in ways that you will never know, and I just want to say thank you.

Before I met you, I didn’t realize how scared I was to try things, so thank you for giving me the courage to live life more “on the edge”. Thanks for opening my eyes to new experiences that have enabled me to grow as a person and shape who I am today.

The countless memories we have together are ones that will be in my heart forever. The amount of love found within them is enough to withhold forever.

In honor of the six months we have shared together, here are six things I love about you.

You never judge me

At times, I know I can have a million flaws, but you’ve never once made me feel bad about them. In fact, you’ve never made me feel like they are flaws, but rather they’re what make me, me.

My endless rants

Let me tell you, there is always drama with someone or about something and you are always my go to person to rant about it. I’m so thankful you’ve accepted my endless conversations about problems and issues I know you’d rather not be involved with.

My coffee addiction has worn off on you

I’ll never forget our first date when you took me Starbucks and bought my favorite drink, and when I asked you if you wanted anything you said “never”. Now, you ask ME to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte (sorry your secret is out), and I LOVE it.

We are the same person

This has it perks and its disadvantages. Because as much as I’m stubborn and want things a certain away, you’re the same way. This is definitely why we butt heads so much, but also why we have such a strong bond.]

You’ve made me a part of your life

So many boyfriends treat their girlfriends as “objects” or separate from their family. But you have made me feel needed in your life. You’ve let me be a part of so many wonderful experiences with your friends and family I am forever grateful.

You care [too] much

I know saying someone cares “too” much is so overrated, but you do and I love that about you. I know you worry because you care. You do things for me because you care. And most importantly, I know I can trust you with my whole heart because you care.

If only our unexpected meeting would have foreshadowed all the crazy things we have been through. Thank you for an amazing half a year, and I can’t wait to spend many more with you.

5 Reasons Why Generation X Men Are The Best To Date

Respect to all my Generation X men, may you never forget that the world is a beautiful place and just plain “Dy-no-mite!”

RockMy generation: Generation X. Those born between 1965 and 1980 have survived Reaganomics, Watergate, The War in Afghanistan (so far) and soaring college tuition prices. We were told we were lazy, ironic and dismissive, but in reality, we are passionate, empathetic and thoughtful, and when it comes to the men of my generation, I got nothing but love.

I guess I’m a purist and maybe a little old fashioned, but I don’t get into men who are much younger or much older than I. Perhaps it’s a comfort zone of sorts or an area I am drawn to because of my 80’s upbringing, but Generation X’ers have it going on. We get each other on so many levels: musically, morally, politically (most of the time) and culturally. So here is my homage to Generation X men, may you live long and prosper.

  1. Most of the Generation X men are not into the whole beard thing. These beauties were brought up in a time where their father’s taught them to keep their mugs clean and smooth, so when they make out with someone they don’t rub their hairy chins all over their significant others’ faces and get them all bumpy and red. It’s just plain nice to shave your face, but don’t get me wrong, these men are not afraid to get their hands dirty. They rode dirt bikes and skateboards in the 70’s and stage dove in the 80’s. Be still my beating heart.

  2. Their love of 80’s music. Let’s face it, the 80’s rocked, whether your special someone was into Punk Rock, Post-Punk, Freestyle, or Rock and Roll, Generation X men know what’s up and they know their music and could rock anything from Chuck Taylors to Doc Martens. Hot.

  3. They get the feminism word and know it is not a bad word and most are down to fight for the rights of all, but still know how to treat a lady. They understand the female plight and will march arm in arm, cheering you on from the sidelines, but still hold the car door open for you on a date. Meow.

  4. They know the difference between Starsky and Hutch, better yet; they know the show inside and out. They also know that Janet Jackson was a regular on Good Times, the television show. You know, “Dy-no-mite!” They can openly discuss Speed Racer and Ultraman as if they are discussing Dostoyevsky and still open a bottle cap with their teeth. They remember when the Flyers won the Stanley Cup and recently cheered in the streets for their beloved Eagles. Purr. Purr. Purr.

  5. Finally, Generation X men are not afraid to be vulnerable. They struggled with their toughness in the 80’s but learned through their experiences that the world is a difficult place, but when you find those you trust, the world becomes that much bigger and can be a place filled with love and laughter, but often tears, which they share with their counterparts openly and with soul. Sniff. Sniff.

The media still attempts to discount Generation X as the “lost generation”. I say we are the generation who will save the human race because of our guts and grit.

Respect to all my Generation X men, may you never forget that the world is a beautiful place and just plain “Dy-no-mite!”
