Relationships are work. Not all the time but there is an element of effort involved if you want your relationship to be successful. Recently I had a conversation with my daughter about the misconception that a marriage is all about romance. I hope I didn’t impart too much cynicism into her idealistic teenage brain.
This weeks TMI questions look like fun so here goes my effort.
1. Lingerie–do you like to give it as a gift or received it?
Mr Jones is not a fan of lingerie so as a rule if I want something I have to buy it for myself. I think it would be nice to be in a relationship with a man who buys lingerie for me that he wants to see me in.
In terms of giving lingerie as s gift I absolutely love giving away panties that I have worn to my lover’s. It is fucking sexy to think of them stroking themselves while sniffing my scent or rubbing it on themselves.
2. What’s a good date night movie?
I honestly don’t have an answer to this. I haven’t really followed the practise of having ‘date night’. It seems so contrived. Perhaps my cynicism is misplaced and perhaps it is why Mr Jones and I seem to find it hard to be relaxed in each other’s company from time to time.
Recently we have been watching Outlander together. It has been great sharing a fixation with a show with him. Although I don’t think he has quite the same Jaime fantasies that I do
3. When your partner asks you “what’s wrong?” do you most often say “nothing” when something clearly is wrong? Why?
I try very hard not to do this but I am sure that I have done this. Mr Jones on the other hand is notorious for doing this. It is one of his most frustrating ways of dealing with issues. What usually happens is a period of time when I know there is a problem but he refuses to acknowledge it. This festers along until things come out in a very angst ridden discussion.
4. To keep the fires burning, and the relationship fresh you need to send your significant other just one text. What is that text?
An image of me with another man’s cum in my mouth usually does the trick.
Bonus: What was the last grand romantic gesture you made?
Recently I was involved with a man that I had seen a couple of times. Our fun was fairly vanilla and I am certain that there was nothing about him that tickled any romantic ideas. Certainly in the past I have had friends that have been far more adventurous and appealed to the romantic me much more.
For whatever reason Mr Jones felt very insecure about the time I spent with him. In the past whenever jealousy has reared its ugly head I have persevered and taken care to make sure Mr Jones feels included.
This time I took a different approach. I made the decision to end ties with my new friend and followed through the next day. To some people it may seem like an expected action but to me it represents going against my nature. Kind of like closing off part of my personality. I don’t think Mr Jones understood how significant the action was but he is happy and that is enough for me at the moment.
