logansrogue: (delight me mermaid)
You know you're in love when your partner's wrinkles, which have developed since you've started going out because you've been together for five years, are dead sexy and beautiful and perfect to you. :-P

Let me tell you about my boyfriend. He doesn't like nightclubs (I don't blame him) and he's not really a party animal. He's a more sit-down, talk to people about interesting subjects kind of guy. He's not the kind of guy that effusively expresses his love and attraction to a woman. His actions speak louder than words.

We like walking around a lake near my home near sundown to look at birds, animals and plants. We're nature geeks. We weren't really hardcore before we started walking around the lake. The more we walked around the lake, the more we talked together. The better we knew each other, and the lake.

Sometimes, when we're adventurous, we go walk about the lake at night. Tonight was the perfect night for animal spotting. It's a warm, damp summer night. The moon is half-full and there are bugs EVERYWHERE.

One of the features of Australia is that it's a place full of spiders. It is fuck-full of spiders. I'm an arachnophobe, and he walked ahead of me on the trail so that if we walked through a web, he'd be the one to get the spider on him.

He went first to guard me from spiders, yo.

We're walking down the trail and off the track a bit, between two bushels about three metres apart, we see this HUGE web. There's a fucking golden orbweaver on the web as big as the palm of your fucking hand. We're both terrified.

He keeps walking first.

On our adventure we saw four frogs, numerous different kinds of crickets, a lot of spiders, and a bat. We heard birds, bats, and a variety of crickets. It was the perfect evening. It's not the sort of evening you see depicted in romance novels, or talked about in dating circles, but it was lovely, and I couldn't think of a better way to spend an hour or two with my darling man.
