Relationshipping: Thoughts About Space...

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll have noticed a new face. Blog people, meet Trent! (Also known as TJ, Teej, boytoy, or boyfriend)


He's a giant goofball and puts up with my antics. We have a great time together, and we spend almost every single day together.

BUT...

Sometimes a girl just wants to be alone and read fashion blogs and swoon over DIY's and pin things on Pinterest and read romance novels and eat way to many TimTams.

Since I arrived in Australia I have not spent a single day alone. I'm always with someone doing something even if it's just watching tv. And sometimes it's hard to ask for time by yourself. I sat down with boyfriend and we had a little chat - I need me time. You know, for me. 



I told him that sometimes I'm just going to take my computer to a coffee shop and order a ridiculously expensive coffee and some sort of sugary pastry and sit looking at girlie things on the internet for a while. I told him that I'd love to curl up in a lounge chair and read a book cover to cover with no one pestering me to do anything. Or sometimes I just really want to bake (He was really okay with this one!)

In my opinion, your relationship with yourself is just as important as your relationship with other people. And if you never have time to reflect on the person you are and who you're becoming and what decisions you are making you will eventually begin to reflect the ideas and opinions of other people. 

AND I'M A PRETTY AWESOME PERSON!

I don't want to lose myself in my relationship, nor do I want to lose my opinions, my individuality and the things that attract people to me in the first place!

What do you think? Is space important in a relationship? What do you do when you're alone?
