    Which do you prefer a new relationship with the butterflies or the relationship you've been in for a while?

    I picked beginning. DB has been a real butt lately so there's only frustration no butterflies

    i said other--both have their merits. While I love the new butterfly feeling of the anticipation and all that, I think military relationships help keep that "new" feeling alive and well because of the separations. That being said I do LOVE the comfort that dh and I have with each other now. I love that we can just be our true nasty selves sometimes (farting, medical issues, etc) without fear of them leaving

    i love both - when it's new it makes you giddy and excited, whereas after a while you know each other better and their comfort with that. I hope that when we're old and gray I still love him like I do now.

    I still get butterflies when DH walks throught the door. But after 3 years, I dont feel like I need to be "hott" all the time. I can wear my sweat pants, put my hair in a gross pony tail, not put my make-up on and veg on the couch while watching a movie and totally feel comfortable and at home with him. The beginning of the relationship is always so strenuous. Worrying about what you look like, if you're doing something wrong, what will make them happy, etc. A couple years in and you're just like "fuck it".

    We still like to make each other happy though. But now we do it by just being ourselves instead of looking for something to make the other happy

    I voted other. Granted, this relationship is still "newer" to me, but every day just keeps getting better. I look at him and get butterflies. I think of him and get butterflies. But I know that he loves me for who I am, and he's seen the "not so good" side of me. The sad, tired, grouchy and bitchy side. I feel completely loved.

    I like the beginning better. I was just thinking about that the other day. You know nothing about your guy, its just total innocence and it's fun! I miss those days...
