Hey everyone! Robyn D'Angelo here, The Happy Couple Expert.
We are in the thick of all things March Madness. I mean, amiright?! I love this time of year!
Basketball, and brackets, and college basketball teams and… yeah, that's about all I know! Ha! I love this time of year because it gives my partner and I, who literally have zero, (like goose egg, zilch, nada, none, 0!) interest in March Madness, an opportunity to connect on something where we both kind of feel like we're the outsiders- together!
Everyone is out there, they have their teams, they have their money and they’re betting on brackets and all that good stuff. And we hear about it, yeah, we watch it and we kind of look at each other and giggle because we both just aren’t that into it.
What do you and your partner connect on? Is it something where you guys can both giggle and say, "We so don't care about this, but we're here and it's fun!" Can you guys find something that is your thing?
Maybe you guys are a sports team couple. Maybe you go to games together and you have your matching (or opposing, haha) jerseys on and you guys show up full force. That is so awesome.
Or you might be asking, "Well, Robyn, what if one of us loves a sport or event and the other one doesn't?"
This is still a really great opportunity to connect with your partner. Ask them, "What do you want to do about this? Do you want to host a get together at our house for the game? Do you and your friends want to go out and watch this at a bar or another person's house?" Talk about plans. Watch what happens when you just involve your partner in planning or talking about something that gets you guys excited and just pay attention to each other's energy. That's something that can really connect the two of you if you just take a moment and kind of be aware and comment on that.
So, what is your thing? What is it that you and your partner connect on that maybe no one else does? Or that you connect on in such a big way that other's get a little bit jealous. like 'man, that is one hard core Chargers-lovin’ couple!’
Let me know what you guys connect on and how do you show up big? Leave me some notes in the comment section below! Let’s get the conversation flowing and maybe some lightbulbs will go off on things you can try to connect on in your own relationship!
