New Delhi :
To those guilty of complaining you have a boring partner, here’s some good news for you. As it turns out your days of eating cold pizza and Netflixing with your partner has some positive outcome when it comes to a blossoming relationship. Author Mark Manson, who is known for his work, ‘The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck’ writes that being ‘boring as possible’ is actually the key to a successful and long relationship.
‘That sounds really weird to people but if you think about it, a really happy 80-year-old couple that’s been together for 60 years, the reason that they’ve been together for 60 years, it isn’t because they took all these private jets and they had their crazy vacations and ‘Oh my God, look at their pictures’.
It’s because they were able to be boring together. They are able to spend year after year, sitting around the house, talking about the same boring stuff, watching TV, watching movies, cooking dinner, and it went fine.
There was nothing exciting, there’s nothing blowing up, there’s no huge drama and dishes flying’ Manson wrote.
He further went on to add how many couples fear that being ‘bored’ can chain down your relationship, reassuring that what makes a person extremely interesting can also make them a ‘really horrible person to be with romantically’.
