Maybe I’m selfish, or maybe I don’t matter.
I’m childfree (by biology first and choice after time). I live by myself in a gorgeous waterfront neighbourhood. I love being outdoors.
Start rant. My BF will do whatever I want with me when we’re together on our own. Hiking, cooking, swimming, or even just the local pub. Adult stuff. That’s cool. But when we’re at his place with his daughter, it’s whatever she wants. Which I’ve done every time, no complaints. But I decided to try asking to do what I want to do, and NOPE. She doesn’t want to do it, so another weekend will be spent at the mall and Walmart.
What I suggested? A few hours at the beach in my neighbourhood, and picnicking in the park with gelato for dessert. There’s a big festival happening here too, with lots of street performers and events. Nope! She doesn’t want to do it, so none of us are supposed to.
But guess what! I’m staying here for the beach festival, and going to visit them afterwards! And I’m gonna talk about how much fun I had aaaalll weekend long.
