"You always treat me like a man, and I love it." + Vulnerability

January 12, 2020

My Captain and I have been dating for about 5 months now. At the end of our date tonight, he revealed a couple of vulnerable "skeletons in the closet" to me and said a few sweet things to me. I did a little sharing first to encourage him since "skeletons in the closet" had just come up as a talking point during the night, and it was a very open and loving conversation on both our ends. I also told him that not only did I feel safe around him early on, but I had learned from his actions when we were still friends that I was not to treat him like one of my girlfriends, and this commanded a unique level of respect from me for him as a man. His response was the quote in the title.

But I'm not sharing this FR just because he said nice things to me. Really, this is all about him.

My beloved Captain shared some very personal struggles/secrets with me, I could tell it was uncomfortable for him to open up (since apparently nobody else knows and he thought they were embarrassing things to share), and he only did it because I've been a safe place for him from the beginning. I could also tell that he felt better afterward.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't know about this sub, but thank you RPW for helping both of us!

I read this sub for years before I met my husband, never commenting, only reading. At first, I judged a fair amount... but I still paid attention. I still raise a brow at a post every now and then, but I also still pay attention. I have enough contemporary relationship advice in my life. It's great to have a traditional perspective, too. I absolutely see the good it does in my marriage.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
