I've been with my beloved four years today. And I'm not bored.

For an Aquarian, that is a rare and amazing statement.

I've been in relationships for longer periods of time. My longest relationship was with my third husband for seven years. But I was bored after two years. I had heard all of his stories and knew all of his quirks and we weren't having new experiences or interests or anything. The relationship hinged on what was in the past, was dependent on everything staying the same as when we got together. Then he left me for a 25 year old blonde. He's never told me why he left, but I'd bet the farm he was bored too.

Boredom is an underrated but powerful force in my relationships. If I get bored, I tend to drift away. If the relationship is changing and growing and moving forward constantly, I'm not bored. I may be annoyed, frustrated or angry. I may be uncomfortable because I'm doing something new. But I'm more likely to give a relationship a chance if it changes than if it doesn't.

But I'm weird that way.
