Clearly your undergarments of choice are your prerogative, but it can’t hurt to bring back the pretty little lacy things that were on heavy rotation in the early days of your relationship. If anything, we find that wearing our best lingerie makes us feel more confident, so it’s really a choice for yourself that may happen to benefit your partner.
Have you ever known a girl who swore off her favorite heels once she started dating a shorter guy? We understand taking your partner’s feelings into consideration, but ideally your sartorial choices won’t be affected by your partner’s height complex. Let’s face it: Not much should come between a girl and her shoes! We jest, but consider only changing your shoe preferences if it’s something you want to do.
It’s natural for couples to grow more alike as they spend time together, but for the sake of individuality, keep a semblance of your original, personal style. After all, it’s likely part of what attracted your partner to you in the first place!
If you find yourself fudging about how much you’ve spent, it’s likely symptomatic of a larger issue. Whether you have combined finances or not often comes into play, but generally, the topic of how much you spend should be an open discussion, if you decide to share that information.
We agree, those “weekend” shorts your partner wears are heinous, but part of being in a relationship is accepting the other person, wacky shorts and all. Sure, you can give gentle hints or outfit guidance if it falls on open ears, but giving an unwanted style makeover is never a good idea.
