Bloggingham Love Shack (aka The Romance Meme)

1. What is the craziest thing you've ever done in the name of love?

I married a Marine. One I hadn't seen in awhile, related to both of us being in the military. It was crazy. I took a chance, and it didn't quite work out. But I can't say I regret it.

2. How much mystery should there be in a relationship? Is it a good thing or not? Mystery has it's uses, especially in the beginning of a relationship. It is always good to keep them guessing, isn't it? Or is it. I'll never tell.....
3. Is there someone in the blogosphere you'd like to get to know more intimately? Have you been too shy to ask? Let me help you. Write a 3 sentence anonymous blove letter to them in this meme. Um. No.... the love of my life just walked in the door, and he already knows how I feel about him. Its all good. But thanks for asking. He has his own blog, though....
Leave a link if you dare. (I promise not to tell!)
"Dear Blogger, I've been meaning to tell you for the longest time that I ___________etc etc"

Or if you wish, do some matchmaking instead. "Dear Blogger #1 and Blogger #2, I think you would be perfect for each other. This is why..."

4. Describe a "perfect evening" with the one you love. Snuggling down under a down comforter, with a nice bottle of ice wine, watching the snow fall, knowing everything in our world is safe and happy.

5. If you are in a relationship, describe the one thing that makes it work well for you. If you are not in a relationship, do you want to be? If so, what type of romance are you looking for? What would it look like in your life? My relationship with MM works because we have honest respect for each other, we tell the truth to each other, and we know how to forgive each other when we need to. I really couldn't ask for more than that. Neither of us expects perfection, neither of us GIVE perfection. And we can tolerate each others imperfections...

6. If you had to choose between having good sex (I told you not to let your mother read this) OR intelligent conversation on a regular basis, which would you choose and why? Intelligent conversation. Because years and years and YEARS from now when I am old Hag, I don't plan on being demented and I want to have someone to talk to. I hate not having anyone to talk to.

and finally.....a purely selfish question:

7. I've got the Bloggingham Blues. What type of man is right for Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt? Do any of you see love in her foreseeable future? What do you suggest I do to spice up my love life? What am I doing wrong????!

Far as I can see, the only thing you are doing wrong is thinking you are doing wrong. You are on the path you need to be, just enjoy it.....

You know what?
I AM on the path I need to be.
Life is good.
Thanks for reminding me!

And you can't beat intelligent conversation. Sounds like you have a terrific relationship.
