As someone that was single for a decade and never had a real relationship, this relationship I find myself in has been a wonderful smooth ride. Every now and then I realise just how much of a bumbling goof I can be.

I’m still learning just how to handle being in a relationship, and while I never expected it to be easy all the time, I’ve been surprised at just how easy we have had it so far. So when I mess something up, I hate it. Not because I’m a perfectionist but because I love my boyfriend and I really don’t want to hurt him. He’s making me way too happy.

So I guess I have to curb some of my natural instincts of avoiding issues and when one comes up, deal with it head on. Like most men, I’m not good at admitting my faults, but I am learning.
