That is, when you spend time with your woman you want things to be fun and lighthearted. After all, love is supposed to be fun and playful. We both have good jobs and live together. Being too serious is not only boring, it kills attraction too. It sounds like your girlfriend has given you a good heads up here. I admit, conversation has never been my strong point, but I really think I do have a sense of humor and laugh at jokes when I hear them. Can you give me any advice on what I can do here?
