Thought men enjoy pursuing a woman
What do you do when you suspect that your guy has become a little complacent in the relationship?

Men are supposed to be the " hunters" , right? I thought that backing off would help - I' ve been seeing my boyfriend less and contacting him less for about a week, but this doesn' t seem to have alerted him or made him pull up his socks.

The affection is still lacking and the surprise gifts, well..they were never there. Does this guy just need a kick out the door?

Maria, as ever, puts her finger on the essential point here. Some men are indeed insensitive and dof clods, but too many women expect the man to be a mind-reader / clairvoyant, and complain that he doesn't respond to needs they have never actually communicated to him. "He just ought to know that I want that !" they wail. There's no Ought about it. Tell him, pleasantly. And check out whether you know what he wants, too.
