This evening I joined fellow tweeter, Cocktail’s with Patrick listener and host of the Peep Show, John Zamboni, for a quick interview for Saturday’s Peep Show. Odd, usually I’m the interviewer. It’s fun being on the other side. Nine times out of 10 during my own interviews I have no problems because people love talking about themselves. I proved my theory. It’s easy talking about yourself, and one of the things we talked about was my relationship.
When it comes to my relationship, which will be seven years in on Saturday, I’d describe it as a good relationship. A great relationship, actually. I’m not one to brag or boast by any means. But we’ve been doing well for the last seven years so we’re doing something right.
No one’s perfect and of course we have our disagreements. But what we do have is respect and trust. Relationships require work, however, I don’t think you ever need to be exhausted.
Seems like every day on Facebook or Twitter, someone is having issues. What makes me so sad are the people who put up with being in a bad relationship because they don’t want to be alone.
Being alone sounds scary. To be honest, the thought scares the hell out of me. Consider this though, what’s better: Being miserable with someone you don’t belong with and wasting your time? Or being single and searching?
I’m blessed to have a great guy. He has a head on his shoulders, he’s incredibly smart and he gets me. When Zambones asked me about him, it reminded me just how lucky I am. He gets me and all of my quirks–as I get his. He keeps me grounded.
I think everyone is entitled to that. And if you’re putting up with someone because you don’t want to be alone, it’s not even something to question. Get out. You both deserve better. You both deserve a good relationship.
