DEARSUGAR and Antsy Arielle need your help. She is love with a crabby homebody of a man and she's getting bored sitting at home all of the time. The problem is that she really loves him and just wishes that he would compromise and go out more often with her. I know that some of you can relate to this topic. Do you have any advice for Arielle?
My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly three years. We have been through every up and down imaginable together and I love him more than I have ever loved someone. The thing is, we have an eight year age difference between us (he is older).
I really think that he gets angry and frustrated with me because I am younger and am still at an age where I like to go out and try new things with my friends. There is no longer anymore romance or butterflies between us. Everything has become completely predictable.
He is more of a homebody. His idea of a good time, is a warm meal, watching TV together and snuggling in bed or on the couch. I want to go dancing and see the town! Don't get me wrong, I love being at home, but sometimes, its just not enough for me.
Since we don't live together, I spend a lot of time at home, just sulking, crying my eyes out because he doesn't want to do anything adventurous together. He tells me that I am ranting like a little brat and this angers me.
I've been putting up with his lack of interest in anything fun for so long that now I am really wondering if I still feel the same way about him. What do I do? How do I make him see that we should enjoy each other's company equally so that we are both happy? Antsy Arielle
