a new man

I have known my husband for 13 years. We met when I was 15, and he was 16. We “dated” for about a month when we first met, but I broke up with him. We got back together about 4 months later, and have been together ever since.

My husband wears glasses. He’s worn them since he was about 10. The only time I’ve ever seen him without his glasses on is in bed. He tried contact lenses before I knew him, but apparently had tons of difficulty with them. He is trying them again now. I can completely understand his desire to wear contacts (I wear them) and normal sunglasses. But…and here’s the selfish part…he doesn’t look like my husband. Each time I see him without his glasses, I have a momentary panic – he can’t see! where are his glasses? Also, I really like him with his glasses. I fell in love with him in glasses. I know I will get over it. I am just nostalgic about the glasses.

  1. I’ve worn glasses since I was 11 and only briefly tried contacts in high school. I had some disposible ones so if the mood struck me I could wear them. but I just prefer my glasses. I look weird to mysef without them. It’s one of the reasons I haven’t thought about the Lasik surgery. Maybe he’ll go back šŸ™‚

  2. I can relate — my DH never used to wear glasses or have a goatee. Now he has both. Sometimes I look at him and think “who is this?” Isn’t it strange how we get so used to the man we fell in love with?

    God…makes me wonder what he says about me and my changes!

  3. You know… I just find this so sweet. Funny how its the little things we love and become so comfortable with.

    With that said, I do the same thing with my sister… i’m like — hello, don’t you need to put your glasses on?

  4. You will get used to it – it’s wierd, but you will.

  5. I am the same way! My husband has always worn glasses and goes without them sometimes, but it is so weird to me. I fell in love with the man in glasses. =)
