Ships in the night


Ships in the night

You know the drill. What with work, friends and family, you’ve barely seen each other in days.

And just as you’re envisaging a cozy night in together, he tells you he’s had a night on the town planned for weeks.

Now, whilst it may seem cathartic to sling a well-aimed stiletto at his crotch, some more constructive measures can stop things getting to this point.

Resolution #5 - Set your expectations together

"Having set expectations," says Jean Smith, "helps to make sure both partners are on the same page.

"If you expect to be together four times a week and he expects just twice, then it's time to have a discussion and compromise."

Obviously you don’t want anything as mechanical as a timetable, but if you’re not seeing enough of him, it’s better to have a conversation than a sulk.

He’s probably just as keen to see you, so decide to save yourselves some time each week and make it happen.
