Any ideas to get a break from it?? When me and my bf started going out we were both pretty free and able to do what we wanted when we wanted. We would stay out until 5am and do things like fly off to vegas on 2 days notice. Well now we both settled into very adult jobs and have very adult schedules. He goes to work about 5 hours earlier than I do so our schedules are kind of crossed though we do see each other awake for a few hours a night. At first we tried to fight the system but it was a losing battle so we've kind of just surrendered to our boring schedules. Not only that but we've also decided to do the adult thing and save up for a house so we're always out of spending money so going out for drinks or doing something expensive is out of the question. I always feel like I'm on auto pilot around him and it's really driving me crazy because we do the same thing every day, watch tv and sleep. I usually try to make a semi involved dinner every night and make things fancy but it wears on me too. I would think that going out with friends might help but everytime we do anything it's the same old thing, we end up exhausted by 11pm and are miserable and leave early and everyone calls us grandma and grandpa. Is this a normal stage of life or do we need to make some changes??
