After a much needed social media hiatus, I’m glad to be back and bring you part 2 of #chattytuesdays Relationships. I want to say thank you to everyone who checked in, commented and shared their thoughts on my last post. I’m glad to know that I’m not in this alone and that there is more that we can do to stop racism in the Healthcare system. Well, I’m elated to dive right in to your questions.
I love my boyfriend and see a future with him… How can I go about telling him I want a future together without scaring him off?
Has he given you any reason that he would run if you did talk about it? I think you should talk about the future with him in a comfortable setting for the both of you. If he loves you too (which I’m assuming he does) then he will welcome the conversation. Make sure that you’re honest about your feelings and give him room to speak and listen to what he says as well. Communication is key.
I’m getting married! Any advice for wedding day?
Splurge on a photographer that you would love or trust to take great pictures. One thing I wish we had done was take the photos seriously and spent the extra money for them. I still cherish the memories from the photos, but it would have been nice to have some good enough to hang up on our walls in our house.
What’s your favorite date night spots?
We live in Northeast Houston on the outskirts, so actually making it into downtown Houston isn’t always our #1. We do have a few places we love such as, LA Crawfish during crawfish season, Los Cucos for my favorite Enchiladas, Papas Seafood for Mr. Perry’s favorites & Smallcakes for dessert treat since they have gluten-free options for me.
My boyfriend and I are getting serious and now live together. How should I talk about finance with him?
Finances are a big topic, but a necessary topic. Have you guys started to talk about how things will be split up or paid in your place together. I think starting there will help you guys because it is needed to be talked about. Listen to each other and give each other space to talk. This is also a good time to see how the other person deals with finances. Are they heavy spenders, penny pinchers, do they like splurging on expensive things or do they prefer to spend their money on food? Remember this may be a trial and error type of situation. Be willing to try new things when it comes to organizing finances. But don’t change too quick take it a month at a time and try things out that way. I hope this helps
That’s All for Now!
