My boyfriend is a very positive, optimistic person. I like that about him and it’s one of the reasons I fell in love with him. But the problem is that he always assumes everything will just fall into place and fails to anticipate the potential pitfalls. This ranges from the little (how long it will take to get somewhere) to the big (wanting to run his own business and having NO idea about what that entails). He’s resourceful and always manages to land on his feet but dear god he makes me nervous sometimes.
I’m a fairly optimistic person too but I’m also much more of a realist. I think things through thoroughly (try saying that 10 times fast!) before taking action. I often overthink things which he tolerates with good humor, so I’ve put up with his…underthinking. But sometimes I get frustrated and today is one of those days. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
