This week I’m teaching you guys so much about taking each other seriously and breaking that familiarity mentally in your relationship:
Naturally, I am a funny playful person. My sense of humour is on version 9.0, for me talking naturally is like comedy, but recently I have learnt that no natter how humorous and free flowing you are, you will not be funny all the time.
Most times what will be funny on a good day will be offensive when your partner is not in the mood. I wish I can publicly share an experience with Choco and I but I will need to ask her permission first to do so.
Learn to watch your humour. Pay attention to the kind of jokes you make around each other and when it is necessary to make them. Study their mood swings and off days, and learn to play different characters. If she is going through a painful menstral circle all she wants to hear from you is “sorry baby, you’ll be alright. Try and relax. Drink plenty of water. Rest on your back. Remember to take some extra sanitary pads to work and don’t forget to wear dark coloured trousers.”
You know, that shows your care and concern for her. Don’t go and start making funny jokes like, “boil hot water, add plenty dry pepper and massage the area with it to calm down.” – might sound funny on a regular day, but that is not what she wants to hear at that moment, even though the intention is to cheers her up. I learnt this one the hard way too. Don’t neglect the natural needs of your partner because you know them too much. You cannot know too much to learn more.
