Conversations with a couch potato

Ever get that feeling that the guy you are now in a relationship with is not the same guy as when you first met him ? His interests gradually change. Behavior changes. He likes to stay home more. He hardly even goes out with his friends. He doesn't like drinking anymore. He has literally become my couch potato.

He is ... Domesticated.

Here is my attempt to drag my domesticated boyfriend back into the outside world. We obviously have very different ideas of 'having fun'. But he wasn't like this when I met him. God, we met in a night club ! The last time I remember going to a night club with him was about 1 month after we started going out. And that was 8 months ago.

----------


"Com'on.. just go out with your friends... ok ? Have drinks after work. It won't make you tired. It's actually relaxing."

"You can go out if you want. Just call me when you are done."

"I know that, and I already do go out. Thats not the point. You weren't like this when I first met you"

"That's because I've already met you. If I go out, I'll met chicks. Probably start smoking again. And its a waste of money"

"Ok... Chicks... if you think its worth it.. go for it. Smoking.. you're the one thats playing more basketball now, its your body.. you should have some self control...so you think about it. I can't stop you. Money... I'll give you $50 if you go out with your friends for after work drinks tomorrow."

"$50?"

"$50 and dinner. We'll have drinks with each of our own friends. Meet up after drinks. Have dinner. I'll promise not to go clubbing. And then we'll go home. ok?"

"humm.. ok .. I'll think about it".

*Sigh... The things I have to do to make a guy go out with his friends.
