I really want my boyfriend to be more affectionate with me, like hugging and kissing me more often, but whenever I ask him to be more affectionate, he just says, “Sorry, I don’t do that.” If I want affection, I always have to initiate and I feel like that’s so unfair. I give him all kinds of affection, and I want him to return the favor for once. Heck, it’s even invading our sex life because I always have to initiate that, too.
I see people on TV shows having romantic dates and kissing each other without having to ask first and all I think is, “I’ll have what they’re having.” I look over at my boyfriend and he usually just scoffs and says sarcastically, “Oh how SWEET.” Arg, I just wanna go out on a date for once, dammit! I can count on one hand how many we’ve had in the past year we’ve been living together.
I feel like I have a right to be annoyed and unhappy in the relationship, but at the same time, I feel like I’m being too needy. My boyfriend says he’ll work on the affection thing, but he’s barely changed in the past year and I’m starving for affection. :,(
I guess long story short is, am I just asking for too much?
