I love Gman. We've been together for almost 21 years; married for 16.
The one thing I would like is for him to be a little more romantic. Who am I kidding with the "little more". He is NOT romantic at all. I've told him many times I wish he would try to put in a little effort to do something sweet and romantic... but no.
I'm a pretty easy woman to please. I don't whine about Valentine's Day, anniversaries or whatever. I don't expect roses and diamonds at every turn. But you know, I expected something different for my 40th birthday. I expected the unexpected. I wanted to be wowed and swept off my feet by his romantic gesture.
Instead I got a cake and a bag of Dove chocolates. He then took me to pick out a laptop.
No surprises. No red ribbons. No cards or letters written with words of love and romance.
I'm a little bummed. The girlie girl inside me so wants to be romanced, wooed.
He's a good man. A good father. A good husband. I'm lucky to have this wonderful man in my life. So I won't bitch about it ....but still...
