Off subject

I got so off subject yesterday with my blog that I had to retrace what I originally wanted to say! My main thought for yesterday's post was so going to be about what we do to change ourselves to fit into our significant others lives. So, I love music (as seen by working in a music store for 4 years). I really do like all styles of music but when I was dating Leo I totally was in to metal a lot more than I am now. I think part of the reason was because I totally dug Leo and wanted us to have more in common than we already did, but another part was because my life was kind of hectic and the music was kind of hectic and it fit. But now my life is not as hectic (in the sense that it was!) and so I dig more mellow music. Don't get me wrong, we want to go to a Slipknot concert in January and that will rock my socks off but I will definitely put my foot down (kinda) when he starts listening to stuff I don't like. And I know I am not alone in this. One time when we were going to Hays when we had just started dating and he let me listen to country for over half of the way there. That DOES NOT happen anymore! He hates country and I know that so I only turn it to those stations to grind his gears! But he was being very courtly and let me listen to my faves! .

I can't really think of anything else that I "changed" to fit better with him because we already have a lot in common (and we are brutally honest with each other), but that particular thing sticks out and it cracks me up! I'm sure people say and do a lot more and worse things to fit with that person, but I'm sure that those people who change drastically are the relationships that don't make it.

What are things that you have changed about yourself to gain the attention of the opposite sex? Just curious!

Hmmm.... that's a toughie. Well, I started drinking more, and being less of a bitch. Seemed to do the trick... Oh, and I did succumb to playing GoldenTee a time or two (gag).

You know, the one thing I did, JUST FOR PAT, that I normally would NOT have done, was go play paintball. It was a freakin' BLAST!!! So glad I did it :)
