  • I'm so happy that we decided to stay in.

  • I think we make the right decision.

  • Big time!

  • Cheers!

  • You don't even like my friends

  • I hate your friends

  • I used to be out with 30 lads,

  • when I can be at home with one special person.

  • No, it's like you just end up breaking the mid January

  • and then you feel more depressed than you were before.

  • No, I don't really wanna lose weight...

  • I just don't know, smoke fact rages.

  • Yeah...it's not really that kind of resolution

  • it's more like an emotional one.

  • What do you mean?

  • I've try to... try to be a better person

  • I try to get your better self,

  • to hold your worse self a bit more so account.

  • Who's gonna first?

  • -I think is you! -Really? OK

  • I wanna start being more honest about

  • what's on my mind

  • Rather than getting you to guess,

  • and then getting furious when you get it wrong.

  • So, if I have had a bad day work,

  • and I'm ratty. Then, instead of being ratty,

  • I just wanna tell you that I have a bad day work.

  • Next, so you know when I get really annoyed,

  • and maybe you haven't quite spotted

  • what it is you done to annoy me.

  • But I just don't tell you,

  • and I make you feel really really bad,

  • and I drag out for ages.

  • I'm not gonna do that,

  • I'm just gonna... tell you what's wrong

  • -That will be good. -Yeah

  • I want to stop taking things so personally,

  • and makes you sensitive about everything,

  • if you having a bad day, you're feeling sad,

  • or angry whatever.

  • I don't want to always assume that is to do with me,

  • cause it could be to do completely different like,

  • your mom or you've have a bad day or whatever.

  • I just, I guess I have to stop.

  • Supposing that I'm to blame.

  • So you know I have this habit saying

  • "Nothing", when it's clearly something.

  • But I think it's because anytime it comes to difficult feelings

  • I just want to run away from them.

  • I can be quite evasive

  • So it's as if I kind of need to leave the drawbridge down a bit

  • you know, it's kind I'm a kind of very well defended fortress.

  • -And to let me in. - And to let you in, yeah

  • I think I wanna be as good a teacher as you are

  • because you help me realize so much about myself

  • and sometimes I wanna do the same,

  • but I'm too scared, and anxious that you won't listen

  • and obviously, you don't listen,

  • because I'm being anxious and scared,

  • and who wants to listen to that?

  • So I want to be as a good a teacher as you are,

  • picking the right moment,

  • when I'm calm and you're calm.

  • Yeah, I wanna be a better teacher.

  • I was find you really attractive

  • but I think I do have that thing

  • that sometimes I just don't want you to touch me

  • And I know that sounds really weird,

  • but I think it's because I might actually

  • be feeling really angry.

  • And it's something, I haven't dealt with,

  • and maybe I even forgotten that I'm angry myself.

  • So it's manifesting as kind of numbness

  • So, I guess I need to just pick up on these danger signs,

  • a bit sooner.

  • So I don't end up rejecting you.

  • And, yeah... just keep all of that anguish

  • at the bedroom.

  • -I'm a complete asshole -I am a nob

  • I frequently get things wrong,

  • I always think I'm right.

  • And I got the feeling that this year I'm gonna

  • cause you a lot of psychological and spiritual pain

  • -OK -I don't purpose

  • That's fine, I'm gonna keep making you terrible risottos, on purpose.

  • and they'll gonna be crunchy and horrible.

  • Fine

  • I'm really grateful to have you in my life

  • I'm very grateful

  • And I know it can be really difficult sometimes

  • I'm always pleasure to be around,

  • but occasionally misinterpret that.

  • Just occasionally. But it's normally because I'm confused

  • or sad... or angry, whatever

  • Yeah, I think it's because I'm anxious or angry

  • Do you think maybe this is just us

  • -maybe this is working. -Yeah, I'm sensing the common theme

  • Yeah

I'm so happy that we decided to stay in.
