The current relationship I'm in is unlike any others I have been in (and I have been in way too many terrible ones). This man worships the ground I walk on and does the most romantic things for me every single day. We have an intense connection and are ridiculously attracted to one another. Not once do I feel compelled to act out of a place of desperation with him. When he pulls away, I no longer see it in a negative light. I support his me-time, guys' night time, etc. and simply let him be. Even if I don't hear from him for hours or even an entire day, I feel no sense of worry or dread. Instead I do great things for myself and focus on my hobbies. When we do see each other again, our attraction/connection is even more mind-blowing. It makes me happy to know that he has his life and I have my own, but we can share our lives too. This sort of respect isn't something I've experienced before.
