Woman’s agony aunt Suzie Hayman shares her advice…
Be encouraging. it can be anxiety that makes people retreat or feel unable to take risks. try to coax your partner out of their shell.
Embrace your differences. the saying goes ‘opposites attract’. if you’re a night owl while he prefers to be tucked up in bed, it doesn’t mean the end. You might find you balance each other out.
Get help. if you need expert advice to make your relationship work, despite your differences, speaking to a counsellor is a great start.
