Being together 24/7 is cool with me...
I need some along time!
I have another idea...

As romantic and cute as it is when couples spend all their time together, I'm just not sure it's healthy to not have interests, friends, and a life outside of your relationship.

What do you guys think....

    It's not that I don't love my partner (when I have one) or even other people in my life, it's just that it's not difficult for me to go into 'stimulus overload' so I NEED some alone time in order to recuperate and avoid a psychological "meltdown".

    My boyfriend is lots of fun to hang out with, but there are times when I just wanna snuggle up with a book and read alone. I'm sure there are times when he would prefer to have his own time too. It can be relaxing to not have to worry about anyone or anything.

    I need a bit of alone time because I'm an introvert.

    Yep. Being a non-neurotypical in a neurotypical world can be arduous.

    I imagine so but it's also manageable I presume?

    Haha, yes, it's definitely 'manageable'.

    Being together is wonderful. Myself, I do need alone time.

    My husband is retired. So we literally spend time together 24/7. We each have our own things to do...but we are rarely apart.

    I think that anyone in an established relationship gets to a point where they have friends an/or activities that they do without their SO but I do think it is nice to do many things together and spend lots of time together. You should be the most important people in each others' lives and best friends.

    What is unhealthy is to deny any interests you have because your partner doesn't share them.

    Agreed, people should not lose all their passions in life just for the fact one partner isn't into them as much. That was one of the key reasons me and my ex parted ways.

    Yes, some of that happened with me and my ex too. I have a chronic illness and he is passionate about hiking.

    In my case I am social and outgoing and my ex wanted me to stay in and stop seeing my friends and spend all my time with her.

    That does sound like a mismatch. I would suspect that two introverts are likely to spend more time together than two extroverts and an introvert/extrovert match can be a challenge.

    Challenging is an understatement if there was ever one; it's a long story. ;)

    Oh mine is a long story too. I was married for 25 years. :)

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
