She doesn't do sport. Has no hobbies. Hates other people. Never wants to do anything for anyone else. Hates walking anywhere and is tent phobic.


Why the bloody hell does she think this is anywhere near bring a Good Idea?

I'm bring turribly positive and bouncy about it but Really should I?

Have you asked her what it is about it that appeals? And gently asked whether she has considered that it involves stuff she hates...?

Yes. She's quite keen which is weird in itself. She doesn't show enthusuasm for anything.

is there any harm in her starting it and jacking it in if she really doesn't enjoy it? I started but finish DoE many moons ago, but I think it was still a worthwhile experience, even if it did put me off tents for life grin

No. She can stop at any time. I cannot imagine why she wants to.

You never know, she may love it. and pigs might fly
