One of the main ways that played out was baby talk. But by assuming the tone of a younger girl who needed to be taken care of when I was feeling needy or I wanted attention, I was often able to trick myself into feeling like the guys I was with were more dominant or protective than they actually felt to me otherwise.Now that I'm with what I would consider to be my first "Grown Man" (whatever that really means) I find the need to baby talk has mysteriously mostly disappeared.
For me and many others, this decade has been all about love and work.
I'm a serial monogamist and hopeless romantic who's hoping to grow out of it, and I am, like most 27-year-olds and human beings, a complete work in progress.
Sure, I'm still sweet and affectionate, but I don't want to sound like a baby to him.
I'm acting more like a grown woman, because I am one — and I want to be his equal. ) that you can always tell when a friend is really in love because you don't hear much from them about it.
I wrote off fantasies I had during sex — like being spontaneously pushed against a wall and kissed, hard — as things I could compromise on, or that might happen someday down the road.
