Relationships: Reassurance

One of the things that I’m still learning when it comes to relationships is how to reassure your significant other that you love them or still love them. I feel like when it comes to love, I’m better at showing him that I love him.

Perhaps, it stems from my parents?

Growing up in an Asian household, I don’t recall my parents telling me they love me (often) after a certain age. But I knew they loved me because they always made sure we had food on the table, and money when we went out with our friends, and luckily I was able to get picked up almost every day! So I KNOW they loved me, they just never said it.

At the beginning of my relationship, he’s always told me he loved me first. It took me a while to admit I did love him, and to say it. I would always show it, getting up first to make us our breakfast and lunch (only a few people in my life is that important for me to lose sleep over). LOL. Even when our jobs switched up our shifts, there were times we wouldn’t see each other but I’d have his lunch and dinner prepared. I do love him.

I am just terrible with words.

What are some ways to reassure our partner you love them and they have a solid spot in your life?

Instant Pot

Before, my car woes, I had made a purchase of the Instant Pot. I hate slaving over a stove making meals, so I looked up pressure cookers. My uncle had one of these, and I remember he used it because he hated cooking on the stove top and using too much oils in his food.

I’m finally getting a chance to try it out today. I’m making shoyu chicken tonight, kind of afraid of how it’ll turn out, but we’ll see!

If you have any recipes or blog sites, please share with me!

When buying a car…

Just wanted to save this for future notes…

Yesterday at the car dealership, they were trying to “trick” me into paying more than the financing options. If you are buying a new car, keep pressing them to go down on the APR % so you don’t end up paying some ridiculous amount.

So I checked my credit karma app yesterday, and my grade was about 790. I knew, walking in, I should get a good deal with financing. Anyways, the amount I financed was about $24,000 on a car. They wanted me to pay $450 a  month, for 60 months. Do you know how much that is? That’s $27,000! Nuh-uh boo, boo! Not today.

Anyways, I ended up walking out financing $25,000 but no APR %

Keep doing research and don’t get suckered into a bad deal. And work on your credit score of course. :)
