One way of being able to enjoy someone’s company is being interested in his job – or in what he does in half of the day when he is not with you.
In my opinion, this is especially important in a relationship. When there is no interest to know what makes the other person tick, it is easy to grow apart from each other.
But of course, interest cannot be a put-on act.
I am lucky that I am naturally interested in my husband’s job – and all that he decides to share are interesting information and knowledge for me.
Of course, I have absolutely no use to know things such as jib cranes but it is cool to know for sure (after much debate of “I don’t believe you!” and “You see?!”) that oversized cranes are the only heavy duty vehicles that can be driven long-distance.
I just hope that he enjoys listening to “news” because that seems to be one of my job descriptions…
