Big Bad Thursday: You... Complete... Me

***Big Bad Thursday is all about Bad. He's one of my best friends and was a charming, if commitment-phobic bachelor. He finally realized a woman was worth giving up complete and total bachelor-hood. So now Bad and Jordan are in love and working towards building a life together. They live in a wonderful apartment in Chicago and they are quite a fabulous couple.*** Read Big Bad Thursday posts.

I doubt Jordan or Bad are cheesy enough to say anything like that to each other (at least in public), but that seems to describe them right now. Bad's like was pretty cool if I do say so myself, but since Jordan has moved here, it just seems more... complete now.

Before, he had a pretty good job he enjoyed but it was starting to have as many negatives as positives. Now, he's talking about making a move within his company to a job that is more suited to his needs and talents.

Before, he was talking about grad school as a viable option and something to do. Now, he's a grad student with plans of travelling abroad within his program.

Before, he was saving up money for a nice apartment but really spending more helping his family. Now, he has a better balance and isn't letting doing for them affect his ability to do for himself.

Before, it bothered him that some of his acquaintances were a bit flaky and couldn't be counted on. Now, it's not much of a concern because he has a built-in person to hang out with.

Before, he would spend lots of money travelling to and from St. Louis. Now, his money goes into making his and Jordan's apartment a home for them.

I'm not saying all these things immediately improved the day she moved to Chicago, but there's definitely a correlation there. From the moment he began to seriously discuss the possibility of her moving to his city into his apartment, it seemed like he got his stuff even more together. That's what a good woman does: she's a good influence without being a nag. I think because she loves him just for who he is, it makes him want to be the best version of himself. Bad and Jordan are definitely on their way to being one of those power couples I always admire.
