Conversation at work:

"I really can't imagine myself dating someone who doesn't like to travel."
"I know, me too. They are missing out on so much."
"Yes, I was dating a guy before and I said to him I wanted to go trekking and guess what he said?"
"What did he say?"
"Trekking, fun meh? Going under the sun leh. I thought girls don't like to get themselves sweaty. Do you believe what he said?"
"Sigh, what is in their minds!! Seriously..."

The problem with most men is that they are too frigging rigid. They are too afraid to do something out of the world, too boring to jazz up their weekends and too insecure to break out of their zone of familiarity.
It's nice to stay curled up, under the sheets with your legs tangled with someone you love. But it would be really refreshing to go to a nearby beach, climb onto a baby mountain, and look into the never ending stretches of the ocean with your loved one. To see how the translucent water sparkles against the sunlight.

It's nice, instead of bringing your girl to the movies (which most men would probably be doing routinely every week), why not learn Muay Thai or go for cooking class together. Would it not be enjoyable watching how each other work it?

Don't we all owe it to ourselves to live life, and above what society pressurizes us to be/do, be young on our own terms? Would you want to lay on your death bed, and not been scratched by the sharp rocks while mountain climbing, or has the pleasure at least once, of enjoying the serenity of the sea bed?

I know you might be thinking that i'm too idealistic, but you know, you just aren't living life, sweetheart.
(P.s, this post isn't directed to anyone, am just genuinely negatively confused to why couple activities here are mostly stranded in such uneventful ways)
