Many men have one or two friends and may be put in a position in which they rely too much on their girlfriend or wife.
Exercise: Make friends and hang out with them as a couple and as an individual.
When the relationship is challenging and the only friend you have is her, it sucks! When she feels the burden of being your only friend, she wonders about your ability to keep a strong connection. Life is about connecting to others (strength), not isolating and work and TV/video games (weakness).
Make new friends wherever you go by being the person people want to hang out with- good stories, care about making them feel good etc. Be playful and not take yourself so darn seriously. Adventure is around every corner.
Are you open to the adventures life hands you? Demonstrate that! Initiate an adventure and be spontaneous.
Do you go for routine and systems and predictability?
Are you enjoying your life and welcoming her into it or do you not have a life and therefore rely on her to give you a life (weakness)? Do you sweep her off her feet and make her wonder? Does she feel good around you? Does she look forward to seeing you and do you look forward to seeing her? Are you just together because you don’t want to be alone? If that is true, deal with that by making more friends and by being a better friend to yourself.
Challenge: Be spontaneous at least once a day this week.
