Fun for All or None at All?

Black Tie Party Going Alone 289x300 Fun for All or None at All?Guest post by Baby Boomer Talk Online relationship expert Michael Webb.

Have you ever had a friend or coworker tell you that they couldn’t
go to a fun event because their partner had to work, would be out
or town or had some sort of conflict and wouldn’t be able to make
it?

Athena and I are pretty much inseparable. We love to travel, shop,
garden, eat, play and work together. But I would find it utterly
selfish to make her feel guilty about missing some fun event or
opportunity just because I couldn’t go too.

Blissful relationships are NOT built on equal opportunity. Athena
lets me sleep later in the morning when Ashton wakes her up. I
don’t make her feel guilty about spending half the day at the pool
with friends when I have work to do. I take business trips alone
where I am wined and dined and driven around in limousines. Athena
sometimes goes to the park or museum without me. We’d be missing
out on a whole lot if we decided that we could only have fun
together.

Enjoy the perks that your circumstance gives you.

If your sweetheart is offered a meal at the city’s finest
restaurant, encourage them to take it even if you can’t be there to
share it. If your boss gives you a free day pass to a spa and
resort, go and don’t feel guilty that your partner couldn’t join
you.

Some couples are willing to do this as long as they “equal out” in
the end. They rationalize that she can go on an all expense paid
three-day ski trip with her company only because last year he went
on a golf trip paid by his employer. In a truly loving and blissful
relationship you aren’t keeping score of these things. You
naturally desire more good things for your mate than for yourself.
If your partner gets ten times as many perks as you do, be happy
for them. If you are the one getting all the cool stuff, be
grateful and accept it.

If you wait to do all the fun things only with your sweetheart,
both of you will eventually regret it.
