They hang out on a regular basis. The time together is appreciated and valued; an appreciation for what they have in common and what they do not have in common.
It has been expressed more than once that there is a desire for a more serious relationship.
They have little in common.
Something that is pointed out each time the subject comes up. It is always stated, “Opposites attract!” The response is always, “Yes, they do but opposites do not stay together.”
Yesterday they were hanging out enjoying the rain and the jazz. Again the subject of a serious relationship came up.
This time questions were asked.
“When are you going to change your diet and go back into the gym?” The response, “I do not need to I am going to have a surgery for my weight issues.”
Response. “Surgery for your weight issue is not going to correct the issue; it’s a quick fix to a bigger problem; your diet. Until you change your diet the weight is going to be a problem.”
The response, “I can’t change my diet.”
A long deep sigh followed.
Then a statement of fact followed, “Another difference between us; you are always telling me what you cannot do while I believe I can do anything.”
