Your guy sounds like a real sweetheart. You have to love someone who encourages and supports your passions when they don't share it or understand it.I have always been a singleton haunter. I haven't been able to decorate much in the last few years; last year not at all. That wasn't his fault in any way, though. This year we have our own home with a nice front yard. It's not a huge yard, but it will do. He's definitely not into it like I am, and he likes to give me a hard time about it, but good-naturedly. I think that he likes it more than he lets on, and he's just never had the opportunity to do something like my display before.
He went "Halloween shopping" for me twice already this year; and every weekend since things started hitting shelves, he's encouraged me to at least go look to see if I find something that I like. I hope that he gets more into it once he sees what it looks like put together. Right now it's just boxes of stones n bones!
That's a WHOLE lot more than my ex husband ever did; he was the Halloween Scrooge.
I know exactly what you mean. People are amused or befuddled by my Halloween passion but they don't understand it. When I tell hthem in late August that I am behind on my H'ween stuff they look at me like I'm nuts.HE just doesn't get it, and he never will.
To me the downside is no help with rigging things together and also no one to share the joy I get from it.
Hey, there are a lot of great things about being single and nothing wrong with being focused on your kids!I am a single dad of two toddlers, I don't have a girlfriend, have'nt even gone on a date in years. I just focus my attention on my kids. I want to start dating again but don't want to deal w/ drama lol I guess I am scared lol!!!
