Throughout a relationship you will be asked to do something you are not going to want to do. Or maybe just something that you absolutely would not do if you were not with your partner. I promise you – it will happen.
So what do you do? You have two choices.
- To go
- Or, to not go. That is the question…
If you have been reading this blog for a while you would understand the significance of “having time apart” you do not have to do everything that your partner likes to do. So if it is something that your partner just likes to do than it is not so much a big deal if you do not go.
However, if your partner loves doing something, like for me going to concerts – one of my favorite things to do I would pretty much expect my partner to feel my passion for going and want to enjoy the experience of going to concerts with me.
I don’t think it’s too hard to love what your partner loves. However some things are difficult. One for instance is that my girlfriend loves to go shopping. Shopping is not fun for me.
But, when she invites me to go with her, I go because I know she appreciates it. When I go shopping I have a goal in mind of what I am going to get. Kind of like a “focus”. So I do not get distracted by the items I will see on the way. For her, she likes to see everything.
But eh, it’s what she loves to do. So I try to love what she does. I don’t necessarily like the experience of shopping, I just like to watch how excited she gets over things.
