Wont say he loves me
i live with my b/f weve been together for 3 years. The problem is he wont say he loves. He used to say it all the time now when i say I love you he says I Know.

The other night when we were lying in bed he said "i know dont say it enuff but i do love you" so i thought he would start saying it more. but he hasnt! he still just says I know!!

what is the problem??

Dear Me,
He sounds like a good guy ! If your bf keeps on telling you how much he loves you, there's probably something wrong --- men just don't talk about loving you, that way. As for hand-holding, talk to him about this, and mention how upsetting it weas when he reacted that way. Again, some guys feel shy about showing affection in public ; others like it as a way of showing off to other guys. As you say, it's a Man Thing. Just as it's a Woman Thing to want him to do things differently.
