I feel thankful that I have such great chemistry with my current girlfriend, because things were awkward at times with my ex-girlfriend.
She would sometimes communicate with me via text messages while standing in my presence.
It started out as a rare or occasional thing before escalating into a coping mechanism to avoid serious discussions face to face. Needless to say, I couldn’t handle the fundamental differences in our ways of approaching conflict. It was clear to me that we weren’t good for one another in the long run. She didn’t want to admit this at first, but eventually we had an amicable split. Then I spent a few years being alone so I could slowly learn more about myself and what I was truly looking for in a romantic partner. You have to do soul searching to find the right person in the long run. When I eventually met my current girlfriend, I was surprised that we had so much in common. We listen to the same bands, watching the same television shows, and even read many of the same books. The two of us can always appreciate a good air conditioner. I replaced the window air conditioner in my apartment with a brand new one straight from the local hardware store. It has 10,000 BTUs of cooling power compared to the old 5,000 BTU unit that was previously installed. You can really feel the difference in how cold the air coming out is when you put up a hand near the exhaust vents. My girlfriend thinks it’s the nicest window air conditioner she has ever seen.
