Tired of planning

Dear Queenie,

  My boyfriend and I have been going together for almost a year and every time we go somewhere it’s always up to me to make all the plans for the outing.

  I don’t want to hurt his feelings, but I wish sometimes he would be the one to make the plans.

  Queenie, how can I get him to do it?—Tired of planning


Dear Tired,

  Have you tried talking to your boyfriend about this? Ask him where he would like to go, what he would like to do, and suggest that he make the arrangements and surprise you. And once he has done it, be sure to tell him how much you enjoyed the outing. Maybe all he needs is a little encouragement.
