What your man/lady does when he needs "Me Time".

Bethy Cassatt Bethy Cassatt 04/22/2012

I'm curious what yall think about your respective other's their time, that time when, while they might tell you about it, they really want it all to themselves. What do you think of it, do you wish they'd include you, or would you rather avoid it.

He just entertains himself however, usually reading or watching the boob tube.

He'll work on his pictures and chat with his photographer buddies from Flickr; or go somewhere to take pictures.

When I leave the house, he usually gets dressed up, cleans the house, or watches the movies that I'll insult if I was home.

Usually hours of online media, probably more or less the same as what I do when it's free time at home at least. Out of the house I have no idea.

Usually, he plays video games or surfs the internet or watches videos. We don't have a lot of "me time" for either of us, because even while he's gaming I'm online right next to him on my own PC.

We do our own separate things most of the time, but close to each other, so we don't feel like we need more space but also feel like we're spending time together

Wow, after reading some of those things on the list, I am thankful that my partner's relaxing time is only fishing! It doesn't bother me. He fishes and I go tan or do some work myself and then we're spending time together so it works out wonderfully.

My babe always watches sports! He also goes to the gym a lot. Every once in a while he plays video games, but not as much as he once used to.

My man does a few different things: watch sports (pretty much just hockey and baseball), watch PBS (or any other documentary / sciency / naturey programming), reads, plays games on the computer, takes a nap (one of my favorites too!), and so forth.

I think it's great when people in a relationship can keep some personal time and do whatever they want with it.

We'll often both be just sitting here quietly doing our own thing. (Like right now!) We really like being comfortable enough to do that.

When they have their time, he's studying or playing video games.

He is a gamer, and that is ok with me.

He plays one of his various favorite video games, right now it's WoW still, and if there's no power and he needs some 'me' time he'll read by candlelight or do...other things. =3

I don't care much if he surfs porn or not, but it drives me nuts when he wastes hours playing video games. He plays sports games and they get competitive. I don't see how getting frustrated over something that stupid is relaxing, but I can't get him to stop it and I try hard to leave it alone.

I just let him get on with it and enjoy himself, just the same as he does when i have me time. It's important for us as a couple to have our own time otherwise we end up getting in each others way

Rossie Rossie
I let him do whatever he feels like. I don't usually join him on his photography trips, unless he's going to the coast, I don't have the patience to stand around forever waiting for him to take just one picture!

Everyone needs "me time" so I try not to impinge on my husband's. What strikes me as funny is that he never needs as much "me time" as he thinks he does. I'll leave the house for a few hours, only to have him text and call, asking when I'll be back.

We all need me time, I let him have it.

Generally I let him do whatever he wants-and leave him alone unless he says otherwise.

We don't have to do everything together, so sometimes I'll join him.

I'm good with letting him do his own thing. I want my space, so I think he is entitled to his.

I try to let him have "me time." I want my "me time" so I try to understand that I need to give him his. Sometimes it's difficult for me because while he has his "me time" I try to do something in another room, which usually includes cleaning, and that's hard with a baby on your hip.

It doesn't bother me at all. I just like to know what he plans on doing; as long as he tells me "Oh, well, I'm probably going to do this. Might do this", it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
04/22/2012
Rossie Rossie
It doesn't bother me at all neither, as long as I know his plans.

It might be hard on you when you're a younger couple, you probably want him to be by your side 24/7, but letting him have his own time shows that you trust in him and is better for the relationship in the long run.

I don't really care either way. It's not concerning.

He plays video games on his nights off and often spends the entire night doing this. It's frustrating sometimes because I feel completely ignored because of it.

I don't like that sometimes he'll go and watch porn instead of trying to initiate something with me, but I guess I can kinda understand. Idk, sometimes I feel that he'd rather watch girl on girl action then spend time with his straight wife.
