Pete and I answer your questions about our relationship. How did we meet? How often and what do we fight about? How do we manage to find time for each other with our busy schedules?
Lately, I’ve totally been stressing out. I’m rushing from one thing to another – work, study, more work, laundry, cook, search for Christmas presents, make time for loved ones. I’m constantly feeling like there isn’t enough time in a day and at night, I keep waking up realising that I’ve been writing blog posts in my dreams.
The strive for perfection
When you first meet someone, it can be easy to see their positive traits. Your new partner can seem so relaxed and up for anything. Or maybe they’re really ambitious and that turns you on. After a few years, however, these same attractive qualities can become really irritating. Your laid back partner might never stand up for you when their mother passive-aggressively insults you across the dinner table. Or your ambitious lover might be so focussed on work, that you end up feeling like you’re way down on their priority list.
