Who ever said self-improvement was fun? You and your sweetie were treading an awfully virtuous path. Both of you were interested in making more of yourselves -- advancing your education, moving forward in your career.
It was a strategy that would have paid off eventually, but sometimes your relationship suffered from a lack of air. You bored each other. Conversation seemed stale, and the physical side of your relationship seemed even more stifling and dull. At times it seemed as if you had nothing to say to each other. It was like you'd already eaten dessert and all that was left in the meal was dry, dull meat.The answer was to shake things up a little -- this shouldn't have been too hard for you, given that you were the source of action and movement in this hookup. You could have taken up a hobby together. Something sporty, or nature-oriented was favored; something that would have made you both sweat together. Once you added a little life to your pairing, you'd have found that your relationship ran quite smoothly, since your partner tended to channel your boundless energies into healthy pursuits, while you spurred your partner to realize their impossible dreams. The stars were aligned in your favor; but it was you who needed to get the ball rolling. Next time, you won't hesitate.
