you know, you can't do everything together. you can try, sure. but that jig only lasts so long. you don't have to have the same exact interests with your significant other. and for us, brian loves to go to concerts of random bands named the who's it's and the what's it's, while i really, really love chinese food, thai food, korean food, japanese food. any place east of the east coast, which brian has no interest in. and while we try to humor one another now and then, support each other's interests, bob our head along to music we don't know and slurp down some noodles whose name we don't know how to pronounce, we also have these things called friends. that's right, friends! friends who share our interests and who don't have to be left to the wayside simply because you found a person who will do all those things with you AND make out with you (depends on how much garlic is in those noodles). and so saturday night brian went out with a friends to a concert to hear some random band, and i went with tina to check out a chinese restaurant around the corner (also, tina speaks chinese, so it's nice to show her off. hearing her speak chinese with others is always, like, the best).
it can be easy when you're in relationship to start to do every single little thing together. and it's always good to support one another's interests. but you know, sometimes, you can go your own way for a night, reconnect with friends, and eat some damn good chinese food while you're at. there's always a meatball dinner on sunday night waiting to bring you back together.
