Relationships take work and sometimes it’s easy to take a partner for granted, or so I’ve heard. I’ve never been in a relationship long enough to get to that point.
This morning a guy I have photographed a couple of times did something very sweet for his boyfriend of several years. There was no explanation of why he was doing what he was doing, just the doing.
He posted a status that was hidden from his partner just asking for people to write something nice on his Facebook wall just as an act of kindness. Obviously when you start getting a dozens of random compliments from people you start to wonder what is going on. The recipient of all the love messaged his boyfriend and asked if there was a dire medical diagnosis that he wasn’t aware of.
Maybe the boyfriend was getting himself out of trouble for something or maybe he was just being a sweet, thoughtful guy who loves his boyfriend. I’m inclined to believe the latter option. It’s very nice to know that sometimes romance isn’t dead and being thoughtful is still a popular thing.
