How to get him to share his emotions
Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
ive been with my boyfriend,going on 3yrs.we dont live together.when we spend time together,we're great,i fuss at him when we're apart.you see,im emotional and hes not.we talk everyday.he doesnt like to talk mushy stuff.i feel at times like hes neglecting me,because i dont get the emotional side of him.i know he cares about me,no doubt about that.i love him,i dont want to find things elsewhere,and im not trying to change him.we've talked about that.i drive him crazy with my questions about us.should i show him that i have a live outside of him.ive always put him first.do you think this will get his attention,i would never cheat on him.but if im not always at his beck and call,do you think it will bring him closer to me,thanks
There comes an age when people don't change a lot. This is possibly what you are facing with your boyfriend. You would probably get more attention if you didn't always put him first, but it is a risky venture and not something you are natural with. Maybe try dropping the "mushy" stuff and see how he reacts to that. He is so used to your attention that it might get him to open up some. This is a tough place for you to be and I wish you luck.
