    My girlfriend and I have been together for almost a year. I feel like we never do anything. She works in retail management, so she works every other weekend. The weekends she doesn’t work we have her step daughter from her ex wife. We have about 2 Friday and Saturday nights a month to go on a date, the movies, etc. but we don’t. I have been on vacation will week and we didn’t do anything. Two of those days she had off. I just scrolled through Facebook and Instagram and feel envious of the couples on dates or at festivals. She just isn’t motivated to do anything! Even when we have her step daughter all we do is sit around the house with maybe a trip to Target. Money isn’t the issue and if it was there are free things we can do.

    Have you talked to her about this? What does she say?

    People need identities outside of their relationship, but relationships need fun too. Talk to her and find stuff she would be willing to do. Doing stuff is different for every couple. Some couples like to go out, others prefer chill stuff like hiking or having a bonfire. Maybe she will never go to a festival with you, but would be up for a trip to the museum, etc...

    You won't have all the same interests, so you need to do stuff with friends too.
