Olivia and Brett
While I always feel like I can breathe with Amelia and Bennett, Brett and Olivia make me want to hold my breath. I never know how he’ll receive what she says, internalize it as a personal attack and lash out in some mean way. Thankfully, that didn’t happen during this episode. This week Brett slipped back into humor as a way to avoid what was supposed to be a serious conversation about love.
Humor is very important in a relationship and so is timing and knowing when to take things seriously. Olivia already knows you’re “funny” and like to joke. She doesn’t know your thoughts on love. Once those have been established, then we can get back to ki-ki-ing.
