Different sociability preferences often cause conflict in personal and professional relationships; let’s upgrade our understanding of this concept to v2.0.
It’s Saturday night and we were invited to a party. I wanted to go and Secret Cameraman didn’t. So I did and he didn’t. Pretty darn simple when looked at in these terms. More often though, there is a lot of negotiating, persuading, whining, and even threatening to get someone else to be more sociable when they don’t feel like it.
I say, trust your inner instincts. And surely it is time to abandon that social pressure to attend things with your partner. It had nothing to do with our host-SC likes her. He was just pooped from a big night out last night, and we hardly ever go out.
I think this going places together has been overbuilt in the culture, and is due for an upgrade in perspective. What do you think? Are you OK going someplace without your “other”? Are you OK saying “no thanks” to an invitation out? Neither is that easy the first few times perhaps, but the rewards are many.
Launa, Laulauna: sociable
