When Your Partner Has a Crazy Amount of Energy

A few Do’s and Don’ts of being with someone who’s continually moving.

There are upsides to dating a highly active person. For one, the man is smoking hot and looks like a guy who rides a mountain bike like it’s his job. I enjoy this immensely.

Do: Plan active time together.

Part of the weekend planning has entailed making sure we get the rest we're in dire need of but that we are still staying active. It’s the only way for both of us have our needs met and ensure our vacation isn’t one-sided.

Don’t: Guilt them for the time away from your relationship the activity takes.

Do: Encourage and plan downtime, as well.

Highly active people seem to do a whole lot better when you plan the downtime and let them know that there will be little movement during said time.

Don’t: Feel like you have to do everything they do.
