Ask Bill & Dave

Refresh your relationship in a pinch

 
 
My BF and I have been together on and off for two years. We’ve had a good relationship so far, but it doesn’t seem the same as before. It’s like he doesn’t care as much.

Dave: Relationships aren’t meant to remain the same. They constantly evolve, which means after a while you might not feel exactly as you did during those floating-on-clouds days. Not good, not bad, just different. Can you deal with the way things feel? If not, go find another cloud to float on.


Bill: Let me go through my file of clichés.…Let’s see. “Out of sight out of mind…” No.…Let’s try, “Familiarity breeds contempt.…” Too harsh. Ah, here it is: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Take a break from each other now and then. Spend some weekend nights with the gals, or take yoga classes with a new bud. Spend some time apart from your BF, and you should both seem more interesting to each other.
