You are reading page 2 of Hmmmm...when did it end for you???. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I think the butterflies in my stomach feeling ebbed after about 4-5 months of dating. Then we lived together for about a year. Argued a lot. I moved to another state, we stayed in touch, stayed together, and have had a long-distance relationship for the past few years. We see each other about once a month and all the butterflies come back b/c we're apart so much. He's in the process of moving down :roll

But we still act like an old married couple most of the time.

Not married, but dating exclusively (with no break-ups) for over eight years. We're still in that lovey-dovey stage for the most part. We always hold hands when walking together, huggy-kissy-cuddly, call each other several times a day, see each other several times a week, get kind of depressed when one of us goes out of town for a few days, etc. He's also become my best friend, the person I most like to talk to or hang out with. We don't live together and don't plan on it until after we get married. I guess we'll see when that happens if it all ends then!

My best girlfriend has been living with her now-fiancee for over a year. They have one of those weird brother-sister type relationships and bicker over the stupidest, craziest things (IMHO of course). I don't know if it all changed when they moved in together or if it was always like that, but it's one of the reasons I don't want to move in with my boyfriend.

Comes and goes, in cycles. Can't always predict it but it seems we tend to assess where we are "re-connect" after big upheavals in our lives-deaths, job changes, life-threatening illness.

We kind of started out living like an old married couple and now that we ARE an old married couple we are like teens.

Something about her wearing those black jeans just really does it for me.

er...I'll stop now.

When I caught myself daydreaming that he would die, accidentally of course, I knew it was time to get out of the relationship (>25 years of marriage). We are actually friendly now, but divorced.

My husband and I have never really been "lovey dovey"...it is a rare (very rare) occassion that I can get him to hold hands with me...I can count on one hand the number of dates we have been on in the last three or so years...I like to kiss him though :) We will ususally call each other at least once a day (unless we are too busy at work...) If one of us is out of town we definately touch base once a day...We have never done the cutsey name thing too much...occassionally one will slip out though...As far as gift giving, that is my husbands favorite thing to do...so I get little goodies fairly frequently, I just need to learn how to give him gifts back!! When did we stop acting like newlyweds? well, we still are newlyweds really...we will be married two years in January...but we have been together for about six years or so...so I guess we are being our type of newlyweds...We are the way we are...He is my best friend, we are totally comfortable with each other, we pretty much have the same goals in life...even though we go about them in different ways...There is nothing that I like to see more than to see him truly happy and smiling...At least once a day I look at him and think how cute he is, how much I like his smile etc...I don't know if I believe in love at first sight, but it was pretty close to that with us...

Ayep...when the first baby came a lot changed. We don't have the money for all the nice little romantic things, etc. but other than a couple of rough times, we still have the best friend, lovey relationship we have always had. It's just different, that's all. We still know that each other is THE ONE and that will not change and we still tell each other we love each other all the time. He doesn't leave the house without hearing it and vice versa. It's too important to both of us. The kids have made us stronger in our relationship....just in different ways than when we were childless.

i used to catch myself daydreaming about what i'd do with his insurance money - till i remembered he didn't have any insurance. we are now divorced, but getting along better now than we ever did when we were married.
