Are you suffocating your partner?

25 July 2016, 21:01 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - As a newlywed couple it happens, that is why when the honeymoon period is over some panic because it is no longer what they were used to. So they try to bring it up by doing what they used to do, to avoid the normalcy.

When you keep checking on them

Maybe you are the wife that is constantly sending texts after five to find out where the traffic has derailed their journey or the worried husband that wants to know the wife is safe. But mostly the woman not wanting the food to get cold or eating alone.

Eating alone scares wives especially if it is the third time in a week. I am not saying get used to it but once they tell you where they are, you choose to wait or eat! But sending texts every five seconds will annoy someone eventually after a month or so.

They no longer look forward to spending their free time with you

The quality time, when you used to plan things as a couple. You are excited, planned for a whole week but on their end, they look bored- no excitement on their part and you will asked, ‘Haven’t you missed doing this…or that?’ And they will answer, I guess. They look forward to you going away even for grocery shopping for them to just get space because you are suffocating.

Even good things can be tedious; over hugging, over kissing. Not that you stop but I know you will know when you are overdoing it.

They are at times just stiff

Maybe the pre-eminent hug that is not necessary or the too much kissing and cuddling. Someone just wants to watch television in piece and you are there sitting on them. Or putting your head on their chest or lap. They just wanted to sit. And watch television.

You are making it weird while the food is burning.
