The other night, he came home from work, was tired, and flopped down in the chair. After dinner, we just sat in the living room, me on weddingbee, him checking his work email, with the tv on. I tried really hard to think of something for us to talk about, and, guys, I couldn’t. It was awful! Other than the wedding, there was like NOTHING in my brain!
Help! Why is this happening to me? We normally can talk about anything or nothing for hours at a time!

You’re comfortable! Nothing wrong with having a little quiet, sweetie!

Well, my ability to create interesting conversations ebbs and flows too. I think though, with the wedding preparations, you can’t help but have only that on your brain! I have to make a conscious effort not to talk about the wedding sometimes, its crazy!

Welcome to my life! To be honest, Mr. Peng and I rarely really talk (like have deep convos) at home. We take weekly hikes, go to the gym together, or go out to eat, and that’s when we really talk. I can’t think of the last time we were just sitting in our house together, engaging in deep conversation. 🙂 So, it’s ok! Just be sure you get your dates in… whether it be free, like hiking, or going on long walks, or a fun and fancy dinner!

Tying to force yourself to find something to talk about just makes you draw a blank! Don’t let it worry you, that’s normal.
If you’re worried that you’re becoming one dimensional why don’t you think about doing something new and interesting? Read a book on an interesting topic, take a class, go see a site in your city that you’ve never been to, get together with a friend you haven’t seen in a while, check something off your life to do list. It’ll give you a little more excitement and will certainly give you something interesting to talk about.

I think that’s just natural unwind time! Before R and I lived together, we talked alllll the time when we were together. But now it’s not so pressured because we need some downtime to recharge from our days!
