I'm going to keep this post nice and short. I hope I am not the only one who has had a conversation with her boyfriend that just bores him to tears? Well I have, and what's more I have a boyfriend who will call me out on it. Which is for the most part a good thing. If I hear this more than once or twice in a few week span, then I know it is time for a girls night out. It seems really simple, but for some reason this took me a long time to really figure out.
I was taught that the man in your life is your best friend and you should be able to share anything and everything with. This is how I have historically approached every relationship. With this notion that whatever is going on in my little coconut then my partner wants to hear. Reality check! He doesn't. Low and behold there was a solution and that solution is a girls night out. There is something so amazingly stabilizing about having an evening out with the ladies. Having the opportunity to chat in chick speak and get some emotions off your chest. And the same holds true for the opposite sex. Having a guys night, drinking beers, shooting the shit, it's cathartic and feels oh so great.
So as I pack to go to Las Vegas for a few days, I leave you with this. If you see the eyes rolling in your partner after you have prattled on for a few minutes, recognize what this means. Call up the ladies, get dressed up and go for a evening out. Oh and tell your man exactly what you're up to. Let him know that it's not his job to hear the latest gossip or about your woman problems. But rather that you will come home with some fabulous stories about how you were told he was the luckiest man on earth to have such an amazing woman. Quality time with your man beats quantity any day.
