Love & Sex Q&A #86

86

Love & SexIf your partner greatly enjoyed some activity that held no interest for you, would you be more likely to try to become interested in it, encourage your partner to do it without you, discourage the activity, or handle it some other way?  Why?

It depends on what kind of activity we’re talking about here.  If were talking about a sport or hobby then by all means my partner should do what they enjoy.  I would try to take interest in it, but as in the case of my 2nd ex-husband, the Ox, things like playing tabletop Dungeons & Dragons, I had absolutely no interest in it.  I did support his playing though, even though ultimately it was part of the reason we divorced.  He ended up spending more time on his gaming hobby and with his friends than he spent with me, but that’s another story for another post.

“Nothing I Can Do About It Now”

I’ve got a long list of real good reasons
For all the things I’ve done
I’ve got a picture in the back of my mind
Of what I’ve lost and what I’ve won
I’ve survived every situation
Knowing when to freeze and when to run
And regret is just a memory, written on my brow
And there’s nothing I can do about it now

I’ve got a wild and a restless spirit
I held my price through every deal
I’ve seen the fire of a woman scorned
Turn her heart of gold to steel Continue reading
