Things have been pretty good lately. Work is work, and Ria has started classes again, so I know a lot of time will be spent with her studying and trying to catch up on sleep from work and endless nights of school work.

Valentine's Day is coming up and I got us tickets to Kinky Boots! I was worried I wouldn't be able to get any, but thankfully I got the last pair of seats that were next to each other. I know she loves her Broadway shows, and she wanted an experience instead of a material item, so this was just the perfect thing. This is my first ever Broadway show, so I'm excited. I've heard a lot of good things about it, and its won a lot of awards, so it should be awesome.

One thing I'm working on right now is making sure that I'm a better boyfriend. I know I listen and do my best to take care of her, but I know a lot of the stupid things I've done have led to some doubts. I fully understand based on the discussion we had about a week ago, and I did help put her at ease, but I want her to know that it's more than just words. I plan to show her how serious I am about it. People don't really change unless they make a committed effort and truly desire to (which 99% don't), and I really mean to make it happen.

We've already been through a lot as a couple, probably moreso than we should have in such a short period of time. The way I'm choosing to look at it though, is that the worst is already behind us. Looking back, I see not just what I need to do, but what I need to STOP doing as well.

What I will do: Listen, be encouraging, be appreciative of what she does, be better at making plans, give her space when needed, be respectful

What I'll stop doing: Being quick to anger and make stupid decisions, being presumptuous, being impatient

Every time when we say our goodbyes, as soon as she's out of my sight, the first thought in my mind is "I truly love this woman." I want there to be no doubt that I love her more than anything, that I will be here for her always, and that I don't want to be with anyone but her. It's time to not just say it, but prove it as well, and I fully intend to.
