Spontaneously Boring Spouses

S

“My husband never plans anything fun. If we take a vacation, travel to visit family or even go out on a date, it’s because I came up with the idea and made all the arrangements myself. If I left things to him, we would never do anything unless we could do it right now, right here, in whatever clothes we’re already wearing. And it’s not just him. Most of my friends avoid planning anything, too. If I don’t set a date, make the reservations and figure out who’s driving, nothing happens.”
Sound familiar? If you want to know why you get stuck with the planning, what it says about your relationship, and how to make a change, get yourself a copy of the August 2009 issue of Going Bonkers? magazine. My article is on page 29. This issue contains a bunch of other great relationship articles and one by Wayne Dyer on changing your self-defeating thinking habits, too.
If you can’t find Going Bonkers? at Borders, Barnes & Noble, or Books-a-Million, let me know, and I’ll help you get your hands on a copy.
