Just go alone. It will take the pressure off of him, and you will have creative fulfillment.

@MlleDarcy:  Go out by yourself. Enjoying yourself doesn’t mean that you don’t need FH, it just means that you need to go out and enjoy yourself.

Why does FI have to be the one to buy the tickets or take you? Why can’t you buy the tickets for the things you want to attend? Bring him if he’s free and bring a friend or go alone if he’s not. Just because you’re living together doesn’t mean that every waking moment has to be together. I’m sure you’re bored out of your mind when he’s studying… go do something! It doesn’t make you any less of a committed partner. Make sure that you DO set some time aside to be together, but don’t be afraid to be your own person either!

ps – glad to hear things are working out with the bedding situation 😀

Just because you’re getting married and living with your FI doesn’t mean that you need to give up the things you like to do that make you happy! Go alone!

I play sports by myself all the time cuz FI isn’t into them. 
You should do the same. You don’t have to do everything with him.

There are lots of things I wish my husband enjoyed: dancing, going to bars, spending hours talking over coffee. But he doesn’t, and so I do these things with friends. And that’s okay, because we do plenty of fun things together as well, like going on hikes and seeing plays. As it is, studies show that couples who have solo interests are more satisfied in their relationships than couples who do 100% of everything together.

You don’t have to change who you are because you live together.
