This quarantine thing will be a test. Probably THE biggest test of all times...
for your relationship. You are suddenly stuck with your partner 24h per day, but you are used to daily spend maybe just a couple of hours of “real” time together if you exclude the hours you sleep, work, grocery shopping, transports etc... maybe it’s an awkward situation where you both are just now, right there, the two of you, locked in... and wow....wierd🤔
There is a reason there are so many divorces after couples have gone on “romantic” holidays just to find out after too many hours together: we’re not a match.
And if you’re stuck with your partner now, then you for sure will find out if you two match or not. On holidays you can at least do new things, see new places without having to talk with each other. Now you’re home. With nothing really new to do, nothing to explore.
I am not going to tell you what to do, but keep this in mind:
1️⃣Respect the other ones privacy. Most people are just not made to be locked in. If someone wants to be alone for a while to watch football, or chat with friends, then it’s ok! Maybe not constantly day in day out, but for a while. If that is 30 minutes or 2 hours, I can’t say. But it’s fine.
2️⃣Everyone will sooner or later become moody due to the situation. If you see that your partner is in a bad mood, don’t take it personal and especially, don’t start to argue why he’s in a bad mood. Then you will fight for sure, so leave your partner alone.
And you really also must feel off how you yourself feel. Are you in a bad mood? Are you restless? Then for Gods sake’s, do NOT start looking for trouble because you will get it.
3️⃣Laugh, communicate and do anything to escape the reality for a while. Because right now, reality sucks and I don’t want you to be unhappy in your relation just because both of you are too lazy to do anything about it. Maybe he is way more boring than you thought. Bummer. Maybe you are hyper boring yourself? This is the time to prove you are not, or your relation will go up in smoke.
Stay safe, keep healthy🙏🏻
Keep loving, living & laughing my dear friends!
-That’s what makes the world a better place.
