I’m a very passionate, excitable person and I worry that sometimes it’s too much for my boyfriend and he’s going to break up with me for that reason. Anyone else w/ a similar personality? How do you slow down?

you don’t need to minimize yourself for anyone, especially your boyfriend. if he cannot handle you for being you, you need a new boyfriend lol

i’m a pretty excitable person and my boyfriend is the exact opposite. i’ve never felt like i was overwhelming him even when he shows little to no excitement. can’t change him. he can’t change me. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Maybe your passionate excitable personality is just exactly what he loves. Why question why he loves you. He loves you just the way you are. Don't think about this too much. I absolutely hate my laugh. Ive been told it's loud and obnoxious and I'm very conscious of it. But my husband says he loves it

If you’re thinking about it I would bring it up w your boyfriend and ask about it 🤷🏻‍♀️ at least then you get an answer?

Im in the same boat. They say "opposites attract". I'm more social and outgoing and he's more quiet and reserved. It gets annoying though when I have to plan out everything (dates, weekends) because he's too complacent to do research and venture out. It's like I'm in the driver's seat and he's always in the passenger seat, although he can drive too.

Just be you. If you try to slow down for someone else, you’ll be miserable. If he doesn’t like it or can’t deal, he’s not your guy.

Hello Ladies, want some perspective. How far ahead do guys confirm their plans for a date? A guy asked me out on Thursday for a second date and asked if I could make Sunday work. I shared a time that would work for me but he hasn’t responded / confirmed since. Another guy asked me out today and I was wondering if I can make plans with this second guy or do I need to wait until tomorrow for this guy to confirm? What is the code here?
