Do you spend time apart?

It's always healthy to spend some time doing your own thing when you're in a relationship - whether it's pursuing your own hobbies, having some "me time", spending time with your friends, or going all out on girl's night!

Do you and your fiancé(e) spend time apart? Never, always, or sometimes?

    Sometimes. We live together already so we are together all the time M-F but he really values his time with his friends at least a few times a month - fishing, hunting, etc. and I really value my alone time and also my coffee dates and shopping with my friends.

    Sometimes - we prefer to do things together but respect each others' space and hobbies

    Yeah I have no problem doing my own thing and him doing his. Some days when we're both off we'll be in different areas just being by ourselves in our tiny apartment. Its nice!

    Sometimes. His “alone time” is usually playing video games, which he does once I fall asleep lol.

    Sometimes.

    We kind of do our own thing during the week and on weekends we have no issue doing things alone. I think it makes us better to take time apart.

    Sometimes - Always I mean we live together so we are together most of the time, but we still enjoy our alone time with friends and just doing things solo... but most of the time we are together

    Sometimes! He has set plans with his friends every Tuesday night so he does that most weeks, and then usually one other day per week we'll do something separately too. But we live together so we spend most of our non-work time together.

    Sometimes. He plays in a cornhole league in the summer and I go to yoga classes. Other than that we spend a lot of time together.

    Sometimes- we live together and like to spend time with each other after work. We sometimes will spend a few hours apart on the weekends. But we always try to do date nights then too when we have more free time. We both work Monday through Friday.

    Sometimes. I still play rec sports so that is kind of my "me time" away. he uses it to play video games with guys since they are all out of state. I also do a girls day with my MOH every other week or 2.

    Always - but I'm excited for this to change once we get married! Smiley smile We don't live together and he is in grad school (on top of a full-time job), so it's common for us to go 2-3 days without seeing each other during the work week. We spend a lot of time together on the weekends, though.

    I think it's healthy for some alone time in a relationship.... I work weekends sometimes so he gets the day to play hockey or videogames or be a bum with the dog! I recently went on a girls trip with my future in-laws & it was a much-needed getaway!!!

    Always. We don't have the same hobbies. Most weeks I go play tabletop RPGs with friends. He stays home and does who know what. Even when I am home we usually are in separate rooms.

    Always - we dont live together and are waiting for marriage to finally move in. I'm excited to finally fully be with him. So when we dont have something together, we normally are at our own homes during the week.

    Sometimes! We live together, so we're together a lot! But we each do our own things too.

    We have children, so it’s very rare that we’re able to go in another room alone. Lol

    Yes a lot! Besides working at different places through the week, I travel and compete nationally with my horses (which is my mom and I's thing so he doesn't go to that stuff often) and he loves watching sports with his guy friends (something I don't enjoy). I have always valued independence and feel we need to have our own hobbies as well as stuff that we enjoy doing together.

    Sometimes. He'll play his video games or go fishing and I just kick it at home. I'm an introvert, so that quiet alone time is perfect for me. But I always can't wait to see him when he gets back.
