I can't help but wonder if this is just the way he is. This makes me sad for you. Below are a few suggestions. High blood pressure, and various other medical maladies from your incessant male hatred manifesting itself into physical ailments that your tax payer funded healthcare will have to pay for. Are you really, truly happy with your relationship? Cook him dinner, put on his favorite music and pour him a glass of wine.
He can't read your mind. This is because she has already shown him that she has standards and expectations. I loved that you used yourself as an example, and left out the banal gender stigmas. Don't forget to let him know exactly how much he means to you. .
There are others who are too cold to even consider romance. I want a good relationship, teach me how. Those who are hating come with negative perspectives and may ruim it for the ones who do find this helpful. I want to bring it up but I don't want to come across as pushy or put any pressure on him. And then I will know what you want from me. I don't get the impression he is hiding me away from anything and I do believe he has moved on from his ex they broke up 4 years ago. However… if he proves incapable of giving you what you want, then you must remind yourself that you are choosing to continue the relationship with him.
Girl I sooo love your post. Dont listen to the victim blaming. It was thoughtless of him. It makes me sad that he is not romantic like a lot of my friend's partners are, for instance they all talk about how their partner did this or that, or how they went on an amazing date and it's like. If he's an extrovert who loves being the center of attention, make it a public affair.
And if those obligations are gender-based, I dig my heels in even more. Tell her that you were really hurt when she left you, and that while you still have feelings for her, you're afraid of being hurt again. Seems like religion of subjects could interfere with results. It sounds like he cares for you; he might just not get it. From your side, the very best thing you can do is make your mood your top priority.

To those who get offended and do not agree to the advice, I suggest you not to take it so personal. The update needs to be about the solution. Men are much more visual creatures, so porn in visual form is our favorite medium of consumption. October 17, 2011, 8:53 pm Hire me!! And when you go out dancing and have a few drinks, it's perfectly reasonable to dance with other guys. Both of you should make sure you shower regularly, get your hair in good shape, and dress nicely when you're hanging out together. If blaming made you look ugly, you would stop doing it immediately.
All day I thought about this date, I was totally excited for his desired omissions to swoon me. When a guy is true to you, he will make sure you are fine no matter what. It sounds like she sees you as more of a friend than a potential lover…. I don't think you should break up with your boyfriend. You can move to his neck, his biceps, and his lower back.
I feel like I always think about what he likes. Romance isn't all about the grand gestures, but about the little things that show your boyfriend that you really care about him and want to make him happy. Call me odd, but I never went for the cliches. You could also talk to him, but at the end of the day he is who he is and doing what you expect of him would just mean he's playing a role rather than being himself. They try to manipulate, control, use, and demean. When I know he likes something, I do it. However it does bother me that his ex lived there while they were dating.
My first piece of advice is always to talk this out with your partner, even if it's an awkward subject to broach. As hard as it is for us to admit, the best way to deal with this is to just give them the space they desire.

I made every effort to tell her how I feel but she just wont give up on me. Suicidal thoughts are serious, and counseling is a preventative step to keep this from coming back again. I don't know if im just asking too much or what.
