I would and have dated someone of opposite politics and in fact, dear reader, I married him. (10 points to the person who names that literary reference.) I am not going to lie and say that we never talk about politics and things are hunky dory. Because, we literally cannot watch a political debate together without glaring at each other from opposite ends of the couch and then someone sneaking out to eat all the Cheetos, just to make the other person upset. Those were my Cheetos! While, politics are important to both of us, but even more important is the fact that we agree that Skittles are a superior candy and that the movie theater smells like a wet gym sock. These are the pillars of a relationship. Not all that values and morals crap.
This week, on Lyz on Love (a video round up of relationships news), is talking vampires and not just in the movies. In sum: While vampires might have been charming, back in the early days of the Twilight craze, they've ceased to amuse me. There is nothing endearing about drinking blood. In fact, I would say that drinking blood is a huge red flag. Relationships are complicated enough. No need to add blood sucking to the mix.
Every week, Lyz on Love brings you a round-up of news on love, relationships and other spicy stuff. This week, I'm talking about Halloween costumes. And really the main take away for this week is don't be a sexy nurse. Really, BE SOMETHING ELSE. When the Devil created Halloween, he wanted us to be more clever than just sexy nurse.
Each week Lyz on Love aspires to do one thing. Make a video that doesn't suck. If I aspire to do two things, it's a video that doesn't suck on love and relationships topics from around the web. This week, I'm talking inter-office dating. Co-worker canoodling. Dipping your pen in the company ink. Carpooling. Did I forget anything?
Lyz On Love is a weekly round-up of internet news about love and relationships and all those other indoor sports. This week on Lyz On Love, I am talking about love and the classroom. In the video, I confess to dating a classmate, who turned out to just be using me to make his ex girlfriend jealous. Sadly, she never became jealous. Was it my sweet 90s suspenders or stylish newsboy caps? We will never know. But what was left out of the video, was that I ended up using him to drive around in his convertible and egg people's houses. (I sure hope there is a statute of limitations on those confessions). So, in the end, that relationship worked out for me. I also dated another classmate, this time in college. He just played the guitar and World of Warcraft. A. Lot. But he did make me some sweet mix CDs. I think it lasted a month. There is only so much you can do in a relationship that is based on video games and Ben Harper covers.
My husband and I were in a long-distance relationship for two years before we got married. I really enjoyed some aspects of it, because it forced him to write out his feelings on paper and now I have them for posterity. He's a pretty quiet guy, so being in a long-distance relationship forced him to come out of his comfort zone. Also, it was nice to have that space at a time when we were both focusing on school and he was able to sucker me into marrying him without me knowing that he leaves his socks on the floor. So it worked out
Advice and insight on texting, your relationship and boobs.
This week, I talked about letting your spouse cheat. Once, I thought my husband was cheating, because he was being really nice and doing the dishes and that's when I decided that if he was cheating, it was totally worth it. Maybe every relationship needs a little guilt to remind you both to be nice to one another.
