I am now reminded how extremely thankful I am to have a man whose sole hobby is working on our house. No sports, no sports watching, no gaming of any kind. His one coworker who occasionally hangs out here is also a WorkOnTheHouse guy, so when he's here, they're working on a project, and sometimes DH goes there to help out with a project. Other than that, his time is my time - if we need to scrub a floor or drop everything and drive out to see CollegeGirl or just dinner & a movie. Our schedules of Kid Stuff when they were those ages, was equal to imp's kids , and that was way enough, plus having a guy on call 24/7, always having potential to have to drop stuff and go someplace, being in the military and all.

The amount of sports and gaming that T or GoMC do would have been an eliminating factor at the dating level for me and would be a mute point by year 35 together.

Perhaps it's just that I don't share well.



I think having a lot of things in common is good, but it seems to work better if both parties have outside interests as well. That is how you have new experiences to share and talk about. When I feel like I can't do something, I start getting antsy and eventually feel trapped. That doesn't work for me. Having the ability to spend time apart allows you to remember what it is to miss someone, and then thing are that much better when you come home. When I am attached to your hip, I never get the chance to miss you because you are always right there.
