It seems like he never understands what I mean when I tell him that I want to feel beautiful to him again. His response is always, so what do you want me to do? His other response is, well I can’t change who I am or the way others want to feel, that’s your problem. We now have a 1 year old son, we have not been out together since I became pregnant; well, if we count him driving me to the grocery store as being together, then we have been together a lot. I miss getting dressed in a pretty dress and putting on makeup, but now I can’t fit any of my dresses, but we don’t go anywhere for me to get dressed up. I have also come to realize that he actually gets angry if I go out with my friends, I don’t go out with them often, my work schedule allots me maybe one day off. He hates it if I just want some time alone, my son is one and he likes to be under me as much as possible, I would like some space for a moment. Plus, I work in a baseball stadium so I am completely stressed, so time to myself would be great. To get a little romantic time, I have even gone out to reserve the best table at the best restaurant in town for Valentine’s Day, I bought the prettiest negligee and even some really nice dress shoes for him. Side track, I bought him really nice dress shoes, he complained that they hurt, continued to wear them, so I could not return them. As a result, I bought him another more expensive pair of shoes for him. What did he do for me for Valentine’s Day? He told me, I’m not in the mood to go out. No, he did not give me flowers, he actually didn’t acknowledge that it was Valentine’s Day. I thought about it a little while ago, I thought about what I miss in a relationship. I miss having a man randomly think about me, you know what I mean, when he walks through a store for himself and then he looks over at something and he automatically thinks of you and can’t help but buy it for you. It was never anything expensive, something like cat socks or a shirt with my favorite cartoon. I miss walking out of the room and a man telling me how pretty I look, I told him I liked that so now he jokingly says it whenever I walk out the room in pajamas. The number one thing he says almost every day is, sorry for my language, “I want some ass. Give me some booty.” Really? I joked with him and ask where my fancy dinner was, he responded, “When you start doing something that’s worth it, you’ll get it.” Wow! Damn, didn’t think that was why we no longer went out. I just miss romance. I miss having someone who doesn’t look at espn.com on his phone whenever we are talking. What happened to romance?
