You've stumbled into the family den of relationships. What you've got is solid, dependable, salt-of-the-earth --- and not a whole lot of fun at the moment. The problem lies in your mismatch of aims.
Though you're ambitious in your own way, driven to travel, study, communicate with others, you don't have the same 9-to-5 mentality that your sweetie does. You've bagged yourself a hard worker. And while that's great for stuff like paying the bills, it doesn't leave a whole lot of room to throw everything up in the air and trot off to Paris for the weekend. You crave more excitement. You want more fun. You complain to your friends that your lover's so sweet, but such a drag.But there are sides to the situation you're not considering. What you have is stable and real, something that could be lasting. You have the type of relationship that could be a wonderful foundation to build a family upon. Whoever said one person should meet all of your needs? Keep your fun friends and your serious sweetie. There are many facets to you, and your lover helps you polish one of the most important one.
