Hint: not a pet, a sibling, or a deceased person!
Some people don't seem to need this sort of person or presence in their life and they do just fine. Me, I'm basically a crotchety misanthrope (or let's just say "independent," shall we?) but I gotta say, even for a prickly loner, having found such a person? It Rocks.
I could prattle on and on about "The Lobster," as she is known on the blog--how funny, generous, resourceful, patient, talented, charming, hard-working, forgiving, and adorable she is.
Or I could try to twist this into a post about exercise or dieting or personal development! Or hell, even make it a pitch for life coaching. I could come up with a list of 10 bullet-pointed tips, enumerating all the cool ways you can leverage the power of partnership to accomplish more in your life.
Or I could get all political and make this a post about gay marriage! (And speaking of which, if you're not overly offended by (mostly positive) stereotyping and haven't seen this video yet, check out this hilarious pro gay marriage video.)
But the heck with all that.
Instead I'll just say, "Happy 22nd Anniversary Robin, You Are My World and I Don't Care Who Knows it!"
Anyone else got a partner or support system of some sort you'd be lost without? Or if not (yet), what would you look for?
