What do you miss about being in a relationship?Page 1 of 15    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15)
I guess you mind say the thill of knowing that there will be someone waiting for you at anygiven moment. I guess we all miss the sharing and exchanging of thoughts and feelings it's the sample things I miss. Like the way a woman can walk into a place and make it a home or how she can make the worst day seem alot better.

This may sound funny but I miss the little things like make up, blow dryers and eye liner pencils in the bath room.

I miss the smell of the woman I'm with knowing that her perfume will be something I will have on my mind all day along.

Being able to call her just to say the words she want to hear from only me.

I not only miss but never really had a warm loving relationship. Just an abusive marriage. But thank goodness for guys I've met while I've been dating. I now know how wonderful it is to cuddle/snuggle with someone, to feel safe and content in his arms. But now that I'm not in a warm and loving relationship, I crave to have all those things and more. To see the passion in his eyes for me, to cuddle for hours and exchange those little baby kisses. The day to day mundane things shared and enjoyed with each other. The little ways that he shows he cares and is thinking of me. The sharing of conversation and quiet together. The closeness of being together. Geez, I miss this and more...

Too many to list, although the things I miss the most are the simple little things, like holding her at night and going to sleep together or waking up in the morning next to her, or watching her take a nap.

There are many things I miss but I would have to say that at the top is Companionship. I also miss blockbuster night with popcorn, soda, coffee, homebaked cookies and all kinds of delicious unhealthy treats. lol.

I guess i'm like everyone else, I miss the companionship. I don't think I ever had someone look at me with love in his eyes, or admiration, or anything like that, but I miss having someone to care for. I have 2 kids, but it isn't the same. I miss having help with those kids, and when I need someone to take care of me after working 8 hours come home and fight with the kids, and i need someone to hold me and tell me everything will be ok. Its hard to miss something when you realize that you never had any of it to begin with.

I miss ~~

Trying to figure out what will make him grin
Trying to figure out what will make him laugh
Trying to figure out what will make him say: Gosh, I love you!
Trying to figure out what will make him sigh
Trying to figure out what will make him just get up and come over and hug me
Making food he loves
Making love he loves
Going to sleep on his shoulder
The first look in the morning
The "Honey I'm home!"
The lovemaking
The hospital visits
Bringing him home
Making sure he keeps his feet up
Making love
Making tea for him
Sharing food, books, movies, music, friends, walks
Talking all night into morning
Falling asleep holding his xxxxx
Holding hands when we're walking
Holding hands when we talking
Holding hands in restaurants
Holding hands, watching DVDs
Listening to his day, his past, his stories
Playing with his friends
Undecorating the Christmas tree
Laundry, folding his underpants and tees
Washing dishes
Setting the table
Waiting for him to come home
Helping him get ready to leave
"Anything I can bring you from the store?"
Making love
Taking the Staten Island Ferry
Making love
Love
His smile
His tears
His rage
His glorious messiness
Him
Watching him on stage
Making love
Him

I would have to say the food thing. I love to cook and it's hard to justify cooking for myself when I can stop in at a restaurant. I broke up with my gf 4 days before xmas so I still have a giant frozen turkey in the freezer. I was going to do my famous orange turkey. I stuff it with organic oranges and inject it with chardonnay and my top secret herb butter mixture.

I miss the friendship.

The love of your life should be your best friend in life, first and foremost to me.

I miss seeing her smile...looking in her eyes and feeling like the luckiest guy on earth. also, I love to give massages (and recieve them of course) I miss watching the tension just leave her body during this.

I miss...
Laughing and joking around...
Giggling over our "bad day "at work...
Snuggling up infront of the fireplace...
Holding hands while walking or driving down the street..
Having a shoulder that I can rest my head on at night..
Breathing in the scent of "him"...
I miss running my fingers along his chest..
The way we always made our feet touch, as we both fell asleep....
Rolling over and saying "Good Morning" then kissing him good bye, telling him to " Have a Great Day !"

I sound like a Harliquin Romance Novel !!
I miss that part of me too...

i miss:

-being tired at the end of my day and finally coming home... then suddenly my lover wants to come over... and just hearing the news and seeing them suddenly revitalizes me and makes my day ten times brighter... and worth it.

-having someone take care of me and be there for me... i have had several relationships... but sadly enough i haven't had one like that in 5 YEARS. somehow i always manage to find someone who takes and doesn't give back.

-overwhelming lust and desire for the other person that when you kiss them passionately makes you feel like you can't stop.

-caressing the other persons face, making them laugh, taking their hand in mine, staring into their eyes and running my fingers through their hair out of affection.

-having someone that inspires poems and love letters... then writing and giving them to them

-too much to mention

LOL

Well since it's been quite awhile.... I still can remember all the good times, with my last GF.
The times she would fall alseep in my arms while watchin a flick-
The long time spent at the store, lookin thru all the cards till I found the right one jus for her-
The little gifts I would surprise her with-
Opening the front door, to that smell of home cookin goin on in the kitchen, knowing I got a mess to clean-
Knowing the dirty clothes are being handled-
Loved the grocery shoppin, learnin and discussing what is ok to get, and what we do not need...
Only had to remember a few dates... The day we met, her Birthday, and the day we became a couple-
Feeling useful, as I was needed to do the big jobs around the house-
Talkin about what we saw, where we went, and what we missed, after a trip-
The wonderful feeling each time we went to bed, and after we made love... wondering if I was good enough-
The cute way she looked in the Mornings-
Knowing what she liked and didn't-
Always having to pick a GOOD movie, when she wanted to watch one-
Surprising her in the shower, when she was not expecting me and ME-
Helpin to clean the place up 30 minutes before the guesta arrived-
Knowing it was not worth the time or energy to argue with her-
Gettin a call at work, when she is missing me-
Telling her many times, everyday ..."I love you!"-
I could go on... but I do not want to

It'll happen again.... What a feeling!

The arguing, verbal abuse, humiliation, death threats and not having to sleep with one eye open for fear of being castrated in the middle of the night.

Pppsstt Capt, the song is by Rascal Flatts...

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm movin' on
I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they're always the same
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it
They'll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
I'm movin' on

Chorus
I'm movin' on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on

Now that all the words are there you can take this song as a break up, moving out of Mom & Dad's, or the big Divorce.. Facing the world and taking what you've learned to make your way..
( Ok so we all know that I see the glass as half full)
Hugs.. Em

Cooky, I'm close by. Next time you have a lizard problem, give me a call... OK, I know it's not exactly a knight in shining armor slaying a dragon for you... but still... Oh, and I'll bring my spear, just in case...

Slowly awakening, rolling over and hugging my partner, opening one eye and at that time slowly realizing, "whoa, he's got "MAJOR BEDHEAD," then quietly chuckling to myself while sneakingly making a quick detour to the "gabinetto or banos," and then once I see myself in the mirror, with even WORSE BEDHEAD (we're talking B-52's kinda beehive, but totally UNTAMED and flat/or sideways) and commencing into a total fit of hysterical laughter.

At which point I hear, from the other room, "What's so damn funny"?

Then, I have to explain my silly sense of humor.

"OMG! I totally have this like, B-52's side-ways bed-head/hairdo thing going on and stuff!"....

Then we get all horny again, and life is good.

Crap - did I just type that outloud?

Whoops - My ****in' apologies to any party under 18 that shouldn't be here.

I suppose I could add a ladder to the larder but I'd much rather find someone tall with long, stretchy arms...

Niiice. I love tall with long arms. Now you're talking.

The ladder and step stool are lower maintenance though.
