Dear Paddy .
MY boyfriend has become obsessed with the news over the last year and it’s got worse in this lockdown.
He has even started to ask me to role-play presenting it during foreplay and he puts on the FOX News theme music..
I went along with it once, hoping it would be a passing phase. But now he has suggested I introduce myself as Megyn Kelly .
I would describe myself as a fun person but I’m not comfortable with his latest request..
We are both working from home now and the news is a permanent feature..
He works in customer services and I am a PA. We used to get on so well.
Our morning alarm is the news at 7am. He wakes and immediately checks his newsfeeds.
Then we go into the kitchen for breakfast and the TV goes on — again with the news.
We both work in the lounge as it’s a tiny flat and the radio goes on — again, news channels all day..
At bedtime he checks the bulletins, often until the early hours, and he won’t turn off his alerts which wake us up through the night.
I know it’s important to keep informed but since Covid I feel like this has taken over our lives and my boyfriend has disappeared.
I’m no prude but I’m not keen on dressing up as Megyn and pretending to introduce Joe Biden's latest decisions.
I don’t even look like her. She’s all legs and slim, whereas I’m definitely a lot more curvy..
