What makes your girlfriend so special compared to other people in your life?
geez I can’t even dignify this in a tumblr post but I’ll try haha.
We share a very very similar sense of humor, the fact that when we’re in public we can jokingly tell each other off and give each other shit is something I’ve actually never found in anyone else. We both get to be really sarcastic and sassy and that rules. Dating someone who makes me laugh is such a good feeling. We team up to do/say weird things to each other (like convince people that we’re really having a full fledged fight at a show or something) to create awkward situation that we both laugh at later.
Obviously we share the same interests. Three of the first things that I learned about her was that she was into Documentaries, Russian History, and Code Orange Kids. I can talk to her about geopolitics and not even have to catch her up on anything, because she’s reading the news as quickly as I am. It’s really awesome that I can text her about things that are important to me and we can have legitimate debates about topics that i hold close. 10/10 would bang and then continue to talk to, which is exactly what happened.
She’s been through so much shit in her life that I’m not even sure how she’s still alive, let alone not completely insane. She’s a strong girl who isn’t afraid to call me out on my bullshit, a person like myself needs that in their life.
Without going into too much detail, as a christian, it’s pretty freakin’ important for me to be with someone who holds similar spiritual beliefs.
We balance each other really well, she claims that I’ve been able to break her out of her shell to become the woman she’s wanted to be (battling social anxiety and other things that don’t belong on the internet). And just as I’ve helped her out with her life, she has always been there for me and continues to be for whatever mishaps may occur. We also have a really similar method for dealing with fights and arguments. We are both very passionate individuals so we have a little unspoken agreement that when we fight we take time, 5 mins, 15mins, an hour, to just exit the situation and then return to it with a clean head. It’s always worked wonders since we are both self aware that we are the type of people who will just get too into an argument and start hurling personal and inappropriate shots at each other if we aren’t allowed to cool off.
I like to say that I’m one that gets her out of the house and having fun, and she’s the one who gets me home at a decent hour and makes sure I don’t drink too much.
It also doesn’t hurt that we are incredibly sexually compatible. It’s nice to be with someone just as kinky as you. Instead of getting “you want to what? where? ew no” I get to have “Fuck Yeah! Do it harder!….Twice!” I notice plenty of couples who don’t seem to be that “into” their partner. The fact that I get to be with someone who is everything above, AND that I’m incredibly sexually attracted to, like she’ll roll over in the morning with no make up and morning breath and I’m still like “fuck yeah I’m blessed” that’s pretty amazing.
Thank you to who ever asked this, there aren’t too many times when I get to talk about how much I love Kiersten, and for what reasons, and it’s felt super refreshing to meditate on it and type this all out.
Find someone who you’re stoked to be with on a daily basis and you’ll understand.
