I never really thought about it

I like being alone, I enjoy being able to have conversations with myself. I am not built to be with someone 24 hours a day.

My partner being at home is not good to my head. I love him to death, but he is just always there, he also does not deal well with being with someone 24 hours a day.

As we have recently discovered, he does not deal well with being with someone 24 hours a day and having to watch the shit she likes.

This is where compromise comes in and the use of of rooms. On a Saturday, he will watch all the shit I want at the minute. During the week, we deal with the telly and at least once a week one of us will go into the bedroom to watch something on the laptop, this just gives us a bit of a break from each other.

We also have split Monkey’s school run and to be honest that has actually been a godsend, to have 20 minutes on our own and 20 minutes with Monkey just chatting.

We also have to try and add in quality time with each other, you can be with each other and not get any quality time.

But as with anything at the moment, communication is key

    We are lucky enough to have a big enough house to give each other space. I go to “work” in a spare bedroom I call my office and my wife uses our bedroom as hers. I come out and fix lunch around noon time, we chat for a while and then I go back to “work”. It gives us space and we aren’t attached at the hip 24/7.

    Communication and understanding is definitely the key to deal with each others needs and space. Good luck my friend.

  3. I know what you mean, quantity time and quality time are not the same thing. ; )
