Just the two of us

“I love it best when it is just the two of us”

If you ask @domsigns how often I say those words to him I think the answer would be a lot. I will whisper it into his ear when we are not alone and declare it loudly when we are. At bed time as we snuggle up together it is last thing he hears before going to sleep and on lazy weekend mornings when the kids are gone to their Dads it will often be the first thing he hears. From the reactions I get to it I am fairly confident that he has yet to grow bored of me saying it and I hope that he never does, although he has promised to smother me and put us both out of our misery if that happens.

I have written before about being an introvert. @domsigns often teases me about ‘not liking people’ but it is not a matter of not liking them more just not being able to cope with people. I love my friends, I love the dinners out, the play events, the munches, the skype calls, the events etc. I would not want to give them up ever but when those moments are over, when it time to go home and say goodbye to our friends I will breathe a happy sigh, because although my ability to cope with people runs out, this is never true of @domsigns. He is the one exception to this rule, I love it best when it is just the two of us.

We just spent 3 weeks in America seeing friends and family. We took my kids with us and it was a truly wonderful trip but the moments for being just the two of us were very limited. Again, I wouldn’t change the trip for anything but one day I hope we get to have a holiday like that just the two of us. I like it best when it is just the two of us.

I love my kids, but anyone who is a parent will tell you that being a parent 24/7 is exhausting. Children invade your space, both mentally and physically like nothing else ever. They don’t know the meaning of companionable silence and their ability to wait for a parent’s attention is, quite frankly, nonexistent. It does seem to be improving as they age but parenting is a long marathon to a far off finish line, not a sprint. I love the weekends and little holidays they take with their Dad, to say I live for those precious weekends would not be an understatement. It does not mean I love my children any less, it just means I love it best with it is just the two of us.

When I got divorced I vowed that I would never get married again or even be in a closed monogamous relationship. I had spent too many years stuck in both and I was never going to repeat that. Now I know that ‘never say never’ should have been attached to that statement because what I had not anticipated was that I would meet another human being who would so radically change how I felt about those things. Although we are not strictly monogamous we are most definitely married and our relationship is definitely way more monogamous than I had imaged things would be when I made that promise to myself way back when. Since we have been married I have dabbled with having a girlfriend but very quickly discovered that what I thought I wanted was not what I actually wanted at all. We have also had a very successful and happy relationship with another woman, I am not sure we will ever find someone like that again but if we did that would be cool and this year we have indulged in some kink play with another man but for the most part we are monogamous and it turns out that I am really rather OK with that. Not that my mind does not play out various fantasies that involve other people and there is certainly a real person or two who often features in the filth in my mind but then I am not alone in that game, as he has his own versions that he likes to delve into. What the future holds for us with regards to this subject I don’t know but I like the way things are right now because I love it best when it is just the two of us.

The point of writing this piece is not to offer you yet another soppy ‘we are in love’ post as I suspect that is getting dull but to show that life can surprise you. I never expected to find someone who would get past my powerful introversion and desire for my own time and space in the way that he has. I still need respite from other people but oddly and for reasons I cannot really explain never from him. In fact I hate being apart from him. When I go to camera club I often sit there thinking, this would be much more fun and definitely funnier, if he was here and it is not just camera club where that thought happens but most places I go without him. I would hate to sound pathetic, like I cannot manage without him in a social setting, as anyone who has actually met me will hopefully testify that, that is not the case, it is however, always more fun with him than without. Likewise when it comes to monogamy, if 6 years ago you had told me I would give up all cock in favour of just one I would have completely dismissed you but it turns out that despite loving cock (and the men attached to them) so very much, I am quite happily enjoying restricting myself to just one because…

I love it best when it is just the two of us.

You have hit the nail on the head so many time for me here. I had always gone through life never limiting myself to just one person, now I am a changed woman.

I’ve always wanted a girlfriend too but now if anything I’d want a friend I can fuck every now and again. I’m not interested in having another cock in my life, his is more than enough for me. Like you, I love spending time with my friends but there is nothing better than coming home and closing the door knowing it’s just the two of us.

The past weekend was a real revelation for me, as much as I wasn’t looking forward to a few days apart I thought I’d just get on with things…how wrong I was. I was completely lost without him and I am well aware that sounds completely pathetic. I realised he is my home, wherever we are together I am home, without him there I’m just not as complete.

Those words “I love it best when it is just the two of us” are words I frequently say to Master T too, or think when I am at my work and I remember things we have done together. He is my best friend, my soul mate, my everything and just being with him brings me peace 🙂

Love the image!

Molly, you and I are very alike in this. I’m very similarly introverted. While I absolutely adore my friends and family and daughter, I get very tired and need quiet time, except where J is concerned. He is my great exception and I consider it something of a miracle that we found each other. I need to start telling him something like “I love it best when it is just the two of us” too. I know he knows it, but I love that it seems to have become a sort of code for you and @domsigns – a small sentence that packs in how very singular and important you are for each other. This post just made me very thoroughly and quietly happy. Thank you. xxx

Wonderfully said . . . as you always do of course!
Re the having space from the children, it does come and I know you will cherish the moments when it arrives . . . and then you will miss them when they are gone! (Until they return! LOL!!!)
And monogamy means different things to different people doesn’t it, but I KNOW what you mean . . . EVERYTHING is more fun when your own No.1 is by your side!!!

So sweet. My husband and I are separated right now, and he tells me that socializing is a chore without me (he’s very introverted). I feel like a part of me is missing.

I, too, vowed that I would not be monogamous, and while we are not always, just like you I’m surprised at how okay I am being with just him the majority of the time.

So sweet. We need more happy marriage stories – so often what is heard and told is negativity.

Aw, Molly, this was so wonderful to read, and the photo!!! I for one never tire of hearing how much you love each other. It’s a beautiful thing, and very inspiring, especially now that I’ve gone from being “one” back to being “two”.

Thank you for being you. xox

This is a beautiful post, and you’re so lucky to have someone with whom you can share this sentiment. Say it as often as you can and as often as you feel it! Getting to be in love and be with the person you want to be with is a pretty great place to be and should never be taken for granted. Seems like @domsigns just doesn’t take away any of your kreplits!

This is so beautiful and it’s a stunning photo. Both sweet and completely unapologetic.

I’ve always been a one at a time girl and I am 100% certain that if my husband and I had not been split apart for 45 years owing to the actions of my parents, then I would have been a one man forever girl.

You know, your post hits a lot of pleasing chords and there is nothing wrong with loving being with the same person. All that matters is happiness and sexual satisfaction.

Peter had many FFM, FFFM, FFFFM and FFFFFM events while apart from me. I sometimes think he must miss it, but he says not at all and we do, both, appear to be happier than at any times in our lives. Wish there was a lot more of our lives left.

Molly Moore October 22, 2015 - 11:57 am

I totally get what you mean about wishing there was more of your lives left. I feel exactly the same way about my husband and wish we had had a life time together

Aw Molly this is lovely! It’s so great to see people happily in love and proud to yell about it! I think you two make a beautiful couple.

I love your post! Jolynn and I are hermits in our house sometimes and we don’t need to be with other people all the time.

I love this so much. Being an introvert I can relate and this is encouraging that someday I’ll find what you have. 😉

Beautifully written. Thank you for sharing.
