Tuesday night is movie night

Tonight when Leo finally called me back I asked him if he wanted to go to the movies at 9 pm to see the new Seth Rogan Comedy – Long Shot.

He ordered the tickets and so I guess we are meeting there and going to see a movie together tonight.

Leo really is a great guy in so many ways:

  • He is patient
  • He is smart
  • He is funny
  • He is handsome
  • He has a wonderful family
  • He is great in bed
  • He is responsible
  • He is respectful
  • He loves kids
  • He is really good with kids
  • He has great financial potential
  • He loves taking trips with the kids (HUGE PLUS)
  • He is fun to spend time with and talk to
  • He is a lot like me which helps us understand one another and our anxiety issues
  • He has similar goals, wants, and desires
  • He usually just makes my day better and helps me to be a happier me

BUT…  Leo really sucks in so many ways that I am not sure I can get past:

  • He constantly talks about his ex Chrissy
  • He doesn’t plan things
  • He does not seem like he will ever change the trajectory of our relationship…  Meaning we will stay in dating land
  • He doesn’t do the things he says he will more often than not
  • He doesn’t want to merge our lives in key areas
  • He doesn’t want to ever talk about money
  • He seems to have no intention of ever discussing future life plans as a couple
  • He is constantly talking smack about me which I don’t typically mind but he does it while we are trying to have serious discussions which makes communication difficult at times
  • He doesn’t do for me the way he should
  • He is more of a taker than a mutual giver
  • He knows he should spend more time with me but as he says:  “I know I should be spending time with you right now but I just really want to _________ (fill in the blank)”

What do I want and what can I compromise on?

Maybe I need to really think about this question.


  • Honesty
  • Loyalty
  • Compassion
  • Patience
  • Communication
  • Love for my kids
  • Wanting to plan for a future together
  • Showing regular ability to do what he says
  • Wanting to do for me and actually doing for me
  • Romance a bit
  • Physical contact and the need/enjoyment of the physical contact with me no matter what the situation
