My boyfriend is a very simple man. I mean that in a very loving way. He never compares himself to anyone and is content with who he is. Sometimes, I fear that he might be a bit too comfortable, date wise. A lot of the time, we will sit around his appt watching tv. He is absolutely marvelous and has not watched football around me because it isn’t my thing. My amazing boyfriend takes me out all the time to movies and dinner dates on fridays and saturdays but that is it. It has become quite the routine. We changed things up by going to a lighting festival for the holidays but now I am concerned that things will get back to the same old same old. I am also a bit sad that he never surprises me. No, I am not demanding expensive jewelry. But a few surprises here and there would be nice. I wish he would spontaneously take me to the nearby lake for a walk. Or plan more adventurous dates. There isn’t much to do where I am from unfortuantely. But sometimes I wish he was spontaneous and a risk taker and we could maybe go to a museum for a change and get our artsy side on. It is so hard with him unfortunately because he grew up in a town with 2,000 people and has gotten used to movies every weekend. But, it does get bland. Anyone else in this rut? Are there any women with SOs, FIs, or DHs who make the effort to change things up and surprise you? Maybe movies have spoiled me and I think it is realistic for someone to blindfold you and not tell u where u are going til you have reached…that’s an extreme ofcourse.
I am still very very blessed and thankful. But after 1.5 I would like to change things up! I have talked to him about this but it never follows through. I sometimes feel uncomfortable bringing it up and feeling like I am forcing him.
