As today marks National Make Up Your Mind Day- here are some things you might find familiar if you’re in love with someone who always thinks they’re right… then wrong. 

Relationships on Female First

Relationships on Female First

They ask you to make the decisions in your relationship- They can't make their own so, they generally let you take the reins on where to eat for dinner, what movie to watch and what do to on the weekend. If it was up to them, you'd never do anything because they just can't settle on one activity.

If they do make a decision- They will instantly doubt it. This will be followed by a barrage of questions;

'Should we have gone out later?'

'Should we have ordered something different?'

'Was it right to ask them to go out with us, or would they have been happier staying in?'

If they choose to do something- You put it into action right away so they don't have time to talk themselves out of it. 'The cinema? Get your coat!', 'a walk in the park you say? My shoes are already on!'

If you ask them what they want for their Birthday/Christmas- You've learned to ask them again right before the event because chances are, they will have changed their mind.

Clothes shopping is a nightmare- One minute they have something in their hand and are on their way to the till, next they are dumping it in a random place and dragging you out the store. Now you let them go alone or encourage your lover to shop online.

Supermarket shopping is no better- They make list after list of things you need and then change it when he/she decides they're going on a different diet or using another brand. Your partner tends to put things in the trolley and then takes them out one by one as they convince you both it's not a necessity.

Their hobbies don't last- They thought it would be a good idea to get a gym subscription and then decided that more fresh air in the outdoors would be better. Your SO wanted to take up cooking, bought too many books to mention and then figured ready-made meals were easier and faster.

Your BAE has had so many phases you've lost count- One minute they are low carb, the next, high carb. They moved onto reading, then the new series of their favourite TV show came out and the books are now gathering dust. They once hated their hair straight, now they take an hour every morning to iron out the natural bounce.

They see every side to every story- They are rarely on someone's side because they can see it from everybody's point of view and it makes you feel bad for being so judgemental and final about people in your life.

If you have a big decision to make yourself- Your other half won't tell you what to do; they will discuss every eventuality with you and then let you make up your own mind with all the information at hand.
