I have been in a relationship with Christina for about 10 months now, and it has been one heck of a ride. Like any relationship we have our fights ups and downs good times and bad etc..

In my life so far this has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. The fact that we are still together through everything really does mean the world to me. Being in a relationship is one of the toughest and most amazing experiences a person will have in their life. It has slowed me down and lifted me up at the same time, relationships are bi polar I guess ahaha..

Rewards

Being in a relationship has many benefits and rewards. I have so many memories and experiences from this. Christina and I have done so many things together.. We have gone camping at the Pinery, traveled over 24 hours by train to see Christina’s family in Gaspe Quebec, gone to Niagra falls for the day and seen the beauty of the falls. Even the little things are great to look back on ..the nature walks , going to the movies and even days just joking around with each other. Having someone to care about and make happy has been one of the most rewarding things of this experience. If I can make the person I love smile just once in a day I feel like my whole day was worth it. Overall I have made some of best memories of my life in the past 10 months.

Struggles

Like any relationship we have had our struggles.  With 2 different people, no matter how much they have in common, there will be disagreements and and differences to be settled. All arguments should not end when someone gives in. It ends when the two of you find a happy medium and can move on from their. Holding grudges can be one of the worst thing i am a very tenacious person and i have really learned putting the past away is the best for everyone. There always is a balancing act as well; School ,work, the relationship, and friends, as well as family all need to be happy. One of the most difficult things to do is make your family/friends realize that there is a new person in your life you need to make time for. People may get offended but it’ll go away eventually , if they are mean or jealous then they didn’t really mean anything anyway and I have learned to let people like that go.

Blogging Together/working together

This has probably been one of the best and worst things ever -_- if I could give anyone a recommendation. Don’t work together! This has caused jealousy , fighting, arguments and disagreements. like who will go to the event? why did you get better seats than me? Also why when I made plans for us did you have something better to do. Kind of like tonight , I was planning on taking Christina out for a nice birthday dinner and take her shopping for whatever her heart desired… But she had the opportunity to go see Rosie O’Donnell, so all my plans went out the window. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices for your significant other. We have made a lot of memories with the blog working together and sharing our stories and I am sure it is interesting to read about as well. Like I feel like Christina has had many more opportunities with the blog but that is probably because she has been with the blog for so long that there really is no reason for her to not have those chances. Jealousy get nobody anywhere and it is hard to get rid of but just think how you would want to feel if you had one of those opportunities and someone was mad at you. I realized that today.

All in all its been a beautiful ride, I truly am happy to be with Christina and I hope we stay together for a long time. Relationships are tough, but being alone without answers is even tougher. Trust me
