I am kindof having an issue with me being the only one who makes plans for us to spend any alone time together, whether its just getting a sitter to be home alone that night or to go out to dinner and a movie or have a drink or whatever. I feel like he should want to spend time with me too and he should ask me sometimes, But I have heard from people that its typical for men to never initiate spending time together and for the women to make the plans. I mean he usually always says yes we can do that when I ask him but it would just be nice for him to ask me! and yes I have told him Id like him to and he still doesnt!! So are you the one who usually makes all of your quality couple time plans or does he?? is this normal??Answer Question

It's not a man thing, it's a personality thing. I'm usually not the one that makes plans to spend time together. He usually gets frustrated with me because I always have something else to do and never think about planning things for just the two of us. This may be very unromantic but sit down and write a list of things you want to do together and check them off as you go. See if that helps.

My DH has initiated going out once, my boys were at my mom's for something I had to do the next day and he said "why don't we go out to eat" (nice place!) But usually I have to arrange the child care, plan where we're going and everything else in between.
