On Our Anniversary

Today is my one year anniversary with Matt. It's hard to believe it's been a year already! Sometimes I still feel like Matt's my "new" boyfriend, lol. But in other respects it feels like we've been together forever. In any case, I hope we stay together for a very long time. I know I can picture myself spending the rest of my life with him.

We are so compatible with each other, but not because we are exactly alike. Although we are alot alike in some ways, there are other ways in which we compliment each other. We can even each other out, so to speak. I think that's the best possible relationship to be in - one where one partner has qualities that make up for what the other lacks, and vice versa. We fit together like puzzle pieces to make one whole "Mamanda."

Whether we are equal or opposite, we always make each other happy. Matt can make me smile no matter what else is going on. I really enjoy being around him. And he says that I'm easy to hang out with and that anything he does is better when I'm around. It's nice to know that there's someone out there who wants to be around me. I feel the same way about him: he's easy to hang out with, and everything is better when he's around. It is wonderful to be in a relationship where we feel that way about each other.

I love Matt's personality. I love his energy and his optimism and his absolute craziness. I love how loyal he is and how much he loves me and his friends. I love the way he never stresses about anything. I am so high-strung all the time. Sometimes it helps me to chill out when I look at Matt not worrying or planning months ahead, and I think "Well if he's still alive at this point, I think it'll be OK if I don't plan my dinners for the next week, lol."

Matt does some pretty amazing things for me sometimes. Nobody else would come to my house on Valentine's Day and bring me a frozen pizza wrapped up in a red ribbon because I was sick and he wanted to bring me something to make me feel better. That was so adorable I wanted to cry!

We can talk on the phone or video chat for hours. I think our record for a phone call is something like 9 hours (all day one Saturday) and I'm not sure if this is our record, but this past Saturday we video chatted for 10 hours after instant messaging for about an hour and a half. Matt says he likes to do that because even though we spend a good portion of those times multitasking on homework or games or whatever, he likes to hear my voice. Sometimes when he has to drive somewhere he'll call me and just talk to me while he's driving because he wants to "hear a friendly voice" while he's driving. I love the fact that he loves my voice and my company so much.

I just wanted to write this note to mark and remember our anniversary, and to tell everyone who cares to read it just a little bit about how much I love my awesome boyfriend. Happy anniversary, Matty! I love you!
