The biggest problem in my relationship is that we can never decide what to do. Usually it goes something like this:I dated a guy like this once. It wasn't a problem because I'm usually the one who has strong feelings about anything to do. When I'm in the mood for Bloody Marys, you better believe I'm going to suggest it. If I feel like playing quizzo, you best believe that I'm gonna ask him to come play with me. If I feel like flopping around on my couch cracking up at the Mighty Boosh, well, you can imagine what happens next.
"What do you want to do today?"RAR RAR ARGH ARGH!!!!
"I don't know, what do YOU want to do?"
"I don't know, you choose."
"I always choose, you choose for once."
"Let's do whatever you want."
"WHY CAN'T YOU EVER CHOOSE WHAT TO DO?"
Ok, I get it. He wants to make me happy by letting me figure out plans for Saturday afternoon, because he things that MY choosing will make me happy. Well you know what, pal? Him choosing what to do would make me happiest of all. He should get off his lazy butt and suggest some putt-putt or a movie for crying out loud.
This system worked out for us for exactly five weeks until one day I had no idea what I felt like doing. When I asked him what he felt like doing, he just shrugged and looked at me. I was like Nirvana, here I am now entertain me. He couldn't. I got bored. So, I dumped him. There were other reasons I swung the ax, but his inability to think of anything fun for us to do was Exhibit F on a long list of offenses.
The moral of the story? We really need to finish our Hunting and Snagging: A Field Guide to Dating so that this won't be a problem for people anymore. Think of the relationships we'd save! Think of the potential fun Philly could be having! This needs to happen.
