Open up those lines of communication, my friend, and talk it out in a way that works for both of you. Find that sweet spot in your relationship where you can be open, honest, vulnerable, and real with each other. Get your thoughts in order.

Trying to impose a new temperament on someone is like pressuring them to have blue eyes instead of brown. Develop a list of go-to activities that are fun for both of you.
