Happiest relationship of my life. We have a lot in common, but enough different to keep it interesting. We kept everything low key, low pressure, and our relationship grew organically. I needed time to really learn to trust another partner again. Giving the other person the benefit of the doubt - that we're both kind, well-intentioned people - was and is key. We laugh together a lot, and try to be really attentive about treating each other's time, opinions, and needs with respect.
