This post has stuff about a previous relationship. My perspective has changed
So I’m trying to be a better husband and father. Mary and I were talking about this tonight and we came upon an interesting question: How much personal time–“Me Time”–is acceptable. I’m an introvert so I could spend all day and all night in the house, preferably in front of a computer, hacking away. But alas, this is not good for a marriage, duh.
I’m really in the dark here regarding the topic so I thought I’d pose the question to you, my loyal readers :) I created this short little survey. It’s four questions, completely dedicated to the topic. I think that it will help us all to know what is acceptable and what isn’t. So, without further adieu…
Update 2: The survey link was apparently broken. It’s working now. Just select the “Me Time” option from the drop down box.
Update: I should clarify that by “me time” I mean time spent alone, by yourself, or with friends. I don’t mean the time that you spend with your spouse or significant other. What I’m getting at is that it’s important to have time away from the person you love, or if you’re single to just have time by yourself. The question is, how much time is common and acceptable.
