This. 100% this. This is completely me but with my wife. I am steady Eddie, even-keeled and cool as a cucumber…by nature. But my wife is what brings emotion out of me — both good and “bad”(bad being anxiousness/stresss). We’re complete soulmates I promise.
So crazy story— when she talks lovingly to me, nothing. When she is telling me a story about drama in her family, thumping the whole time. LOL.
