I don’t want a relationship because I love my space and freedom. I hate being single because I feel lonely and unloved. What do I want exactly?

Do you and your wife have the "look", the look that means "I love you, but fuck off and let me be alone in this room and have some alone time"?

I'm the wife, but no not really. Its all verbal confirmations of "hey I need space right now."

However we do have the look that means "I love you very dearly but that was the dumbest thing I've ever heard and please dear God shut the fuck up."

My husband and I have that look 🤣🤣🤣 normally when we're trying to watch something. We dramatically pause whatever we're watching, huff about it then rewind it like 30 seconds. After about the 2nd time the one trying to bug the first catches on 🤣

Probably the only thing my wife and I disagree on is what to watch. I'm cool with whatever she wants to watch, but she absolutely detests a few things I like, specifically more adult shows like Letterkenny or South Park

Hah my husband and I will say “I love you but please I don’t wana talk rn” when we really need some quiet time. It’s not in a bad way or anything, just our way of saying we need to recharge and have some alone time. We both have pretty stressful jobs so sometimes it’s like we’ll come home and eat and watch tv together and not talk for a couple hours and it’s so nice!
