As I’ve been talking with friends over the last month, several people have told me about a particular thing that people1 do: They ask their partner for something expecting the partner to give a particular answer (usually “no”) as a test.
A few stereotypical examples:
“Honey, do you think that person over there is attractive?”
“Would you ever like to date other people?”
“Do you ever think about your exes?”
I’m just putting this out there:
If you create “tests” for someone you’re in a relationship with, you are the one who has failed, not them.
And if you haven’t already, see if you can contribute anything to
help a Navy Vet and his family who recently lost everything in a fire:
