5. Share All Your Hobbies

I'm in a relationship, but I don't have to be a carbon copy of my guy.2

I do share some of his hobbies and vice versa.2

I also have hobbies that are mine alone and so does he.

We talk about them with each other and that's how we share them.

I don't like video games and he doesn't like playing music.

Instead of trying to force it on each to be a perfect couple, we use it as quality time to ourselves and enjoy talking about it later.

Keep Things Exciting

I'm very glad that, while we share so many interests we are still different enough that we don't "live in each other's back pocket". While our common interests are many we still are different enough to keep our relationship interesting. I have MS & I hate it when people feel sorry for me, which he is incapable of doing so as he is incapable to empathize with anyone, but he does make me laugh instead of letting me feel sorry for myself. We work & that is all that counts as far as we are concerned.

My husband & I have been together for almost 13 years &, while in the first few months I had the first in love reactions (falling in love more & more every time I even thought about him) & he obviously felt in a like manner because he changed his peramitors of looking for a house to buy a house from looking for a house for him & his dog to including my 2 kids & me. In the past 12 years we have discovered that we share a lot of interests but some things not so much. We are both avid old movies seekers & most music tastes, we both enjoy lawn bowling as well as my daughter but my husband is pretty much eating, drinking, & dreaming lawnbowling from mid-April to late September every year & he only gets worse each year as he is taking on more & more responsibilities with the club every year. He has more female friends than he has male friends but I trust him to not cheat on me.
