Aww! Thoughtful Girlfriend Wants To Know Why You’re Doing It Like That
How do you show your partner that you care? For local girlfriend Jennifer Lush, it‘s as simple as stopping her boyfriend Craig midway through loading the dishwasher to inquire why he’s putting the bowls in there like that.
Jennifer asserts that these “li’l queries” come from a loving place and are “curious, not critical!!!” — aimed at helping her get a better grasp on why he continues to accomplish tasks in ways that deviate from how she would do it.
“At the end of the day, I just want to understand him…and why he would take 63rd when Briley Parkway is quicker lol.”
Lush insists that while her goal is not to get her boyfriend to stop what he’s doing and do it her way, she’s always pleased when he makes that decision, “On his own.”
“Just now, for example,” she explains, “when he was putting the bowls in the top part of the dishwasher (when he’s definitely witnessed me put them in the bottom), I go, ‘Craigyboo, how come you’re doing it like that?’ And he’s usually like, ‘Like what?’ And I’m like, ‘Like THAT,’ and we sorta go from there. It’s honestly pretty sweet when you really think about it.”
When reached for comment, Craig explained that Jen brings that level of thoughtful observation to basically everything they do together: “You name it: chopping vegetables, booking a flight, browsing Netflix — she peppers me with questions while insisting it’s only because she wants to get to know me better.”
“We’ve been together for 7 years,” Craig added.
Jen says that if she could give one piece of advice to couples it would be to hyper-focus on the subjective minutia of arbitrary, everyday tasks as a way to let your partner know just how much you love them.
“Plus, look at the dishwasher right now. It’s perfect.”
