Boyfriend is the Silent Type

by Morgan

My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 3 and a half years. We talk about marriage and a future together, but there are just times when I'm not feeling as if he feels the same way.

I love him with all of my heart and cannot picture my life without him, but I just do not want to fuss anymore. He's not a big talker, so trying to talk about stuff is difficult and often makes things worse because I get aggravated easily at his unwillingness to talk.

Do you have any suggestions or feedback for me that can help us do better? Breaking up is not an option for me or him either I think, but I don't want to go on feeling the way that I do at times. Are my expectations too high? Thank you!

Is the person you're with right for you?

Silent Behavior
by: Penny

Most of the time we don't want to rock the boat in a relationship because we fear losing the one we love, but a very wise person told me and I found it to be true, sometimes you MUST apply pressure or rock the boat.

When you REALLY want to CHANGE the way you feel, "I don't want to go on feeling the way that I do at times," you need to rock the boat. Chances are the more you take, the more things will remain the same.

The choice is YOURS. Rock the boat IF you want CHANGE, otherwise sit back as you have been and TAKE IT!

Ask yourself what means more to you, your feelings for him or not wanting to continue feeling the way you do.
