Ladies, let’s admit it. Sometimes we get too clingy and our men need their space. We’re so filled with love and joy that sometimes it’s overwhelming. Give him his space, but give him a letter letting him know that you understand and that it’s okay. That you love and that you’ll be waiting for him once he’s had his guys night out.
P.S. It’s not a bad thing when this happens! Every couple needs their space and a friend night out is most definitely required for both parties. But remember, by the end of the night, he’ll probably feel bad because he needed space and will be falling into your arms once he walks through that front door.

Tell your partner that money isn’t everything, and let him know that as long as you both are happy with what you have, then money isn’t everything the world has to offer.
