I have been in a relationship for three years now but my partner has no ambition and no goals or dreams. Although we love each other, I seem to be the only thing he has plans with. I know I shouldn’t taken that for granted but how do you date someone that doesn’t love what they study, or dream about a career, or want to travel?
I feel like when I talk about my dreams and hopes that he feels bad that he doesn’t have any. He is so supportive of my adventurous spirit, and I want to support his goals but he doesn’t have any. It feels like I’m dating someone who would agree with anything. Do some people just not have opinions?
You wrote: “when I talk about my dreams and hopes that he feels bad that he doesn’t have any”- if he feels bad for not having dreams and hopes of the kind you do, that means he feels unacceptable. If so, I have no doubt that he has a dreams and hope to be acceptable just the way he is.
You wrote: “He is so supportive of my adventurous spirit, and I want to support his goals but he doesn’t have any”- he does have a goal, to be supported for his spirit (emotions, mental going-ons). He does have a spirit too. I am sure of it.
