I think I failed a shit test this morning. The problem is that I don't know how I could have handled the situation differently. Since being MRP aware (6 months), I have been applying a lot of stuff, without much success however. One of the things I'm trying to do is 'lead' more, in the sense that I am taking her out on unexpected dates, dinners, drives etc. She's not always liking that, because it puts me in the driver seat, not her. Last week, she mentioned a movie she would like to go watch. So this morning, I arranged a babysit for the kids later this week and I texted her:
ME: "Hey! On Friday evening, we're going to the movies together!'
HER: "I'd rather have you ASKING me this instead of just giving me an orderlike that"
I was so thrown off by this response that I answered:
ME: "Hey honey, this Friday, if your shedule allows and if you could make the time, could you please please please join me for a movie? Please???"
HER: "I'll check my availability"
I feel like I have failed a major test and walked right into her frame again.
