@oracle:  Hey, not sure if you’re still on here but I was doing a search for the same issue when I found your post. I love my hubby, he’s awesome and there’s nothing he wouldn’t do for me, but would it kill him to plan a dinner, a movie, a show, a picnic, something?!! In his defence, I don’t work and we don’t have kids so I do have the free time. Plus, as he just said, he’s only lived in our city a year while I’ve lived here 13 years so I know the area better. Irregardless, if you’ve found a way to get him to be a more active participant, let me know.

I am usually the planner, too.  On a rare occasion (usually just Valentines day and my birthday) I will let dh know I would like him to plan an evening for us and he’ll do it but I still have to give him ideas on restaurants/movies/etc to choose from.

I totally know where you are coming from. I told Fiance if i never planned anything, we would NEVER go out and do anything fun or different. I basically have to tell him “plan a date night” or he wont do it. 

I think its a guy thing. He has no ideas or time to ponder stuff like that. He thinks i do a better job anyway.

Glad this post was pulled up! πŸ™‚ Darling Husband and I are the same way… I’m always planning, planning, planning. Most of the time I don’t mind as I enjoy it, but c’mon every once in a while it’s nice to sit back and have someone else plan a date for you. Right?!

So, when my birthday rolled around and Darling Husband asked me what I wanted I told him all I wanted was for him to plan a bona fide date night for us. It’s supposedly in the works right now and if all goes well I might ask for the same “gift” for all future holidays! πŸ˜€

I AM THE PLANNER HANDS DOWN. Do I get annoyed sometimes that he doesn’t? Yes. However would I be annoyed if I didn’t plan? Yes. So frustrating.

We are planning I am planning a trip for us to Europe at the moment. All airfare including intereuropean flights and lodging has been booked by me. If I waited for Darling Husband to do it it would never get done. Or we would be staying at a dingy hostel. No thanks.
