Normal emotions?

I was wondering if any of you ladies and your fiancés feed/play off of each others emotions. When ever one of us is down or in a bad mood the other gets the same way (ex: he is feeling down so I start feeling bad that he isn't happy and can't seem to help him no matter what I do). It works the other way too. If one of us is super happy the other is happy. This has been going on for a few months now. We never used to be like this. Is it normal?

Re: Normal emotions?

  • Sometimes that happens to S and I, too.  Especially if one of us is down or even angry, it seems like the other will kind of feed off that and end up the same way.  I think it happens more though if, for example, I'm in a good mood and he's down and my attempts to cheer him up don't work.  Then I end up getting kind of sulky too.

    Anyway, seems normal to me.  Hope that helps!

  • Oh yeah.  I think probably everyone gets that way occasionally with their SO.
  • We are like that all the time. At first I didn't realize it until one of my friends pointed it out. So I believe it is normal.
  • Yup Yup... we do it as well.  Only thing is when the two of us are pissy.. its usually not good.  We kind of just go to our own corners for a bit.

  • I'm going to be the odd one out and say that if this is a sudden change then no, it's not particularly normal. You and FH should chat about it to see what sparked the change, and if it persists/starts causing problems in your relationship, consider seeing a counselor. It's normal for one's bad mood to rub off on their SO every once in a while, but if it's a consistent thing, it's not really healthy because it causes a lot of stress.
  • I do agree on the counseling thing. Since it has become so frequent. He is under a lot of stress and that desn't help. Plus school stresses me out so much I slack of in other areas of my life. We had always planned on doing pre and post marital counseling. So this will certainly be something to talk about.

    It is also good to know that this does happen from time to time with other couples. I am glad this isn't a strange concept for people. Thanks Ladies!
