My SO told me when we started dating that she was an attention hog. She wasn’t afraid to admit it. So like a good boyfriend at the time I said stuff like “Oh that’s ok, I’ll always give you the attention you need!” Now, a year into our engagement, the cuteness factor is starting to wear off.
My SO and I both work full time and I understand that when we are both off, we should be enjoying eachother’s company. But am I a bad person to not want to be up her butt 24/7 when we have free time. It’s healthy to want to be apart and doing our own thing sometimes, am I right? It seems like if I am not with her, participating in whatever she is doing, then she feels neglected and we start arguing. It’s starting to be a big issue because it occurs not only in situations where I might want to go hang out with friends, but even if we’re in the same room and she wants to watch TV while I surf the internet!
Anyone have any advice on how to approach her with this? Everytime I try, I get the “If you don’t want to spend time with me then fine…”, or “Do whatever you want…” lines.
