Relationship Questions and AdviceCategory: CommitmentCan’t get to the next step
Anonymous asked 2 years ago

We’ve been together for almost a year now and I love him and I’ve told him before, and I understand not being ready to say it then but he still can’t/won’t. It’s been eaten by at me lately wanting to tell him I love him so I’ve said things like “I love who you are” but no reciprocation on the love. I feel like he loves me and he does things to show me how he feels but I’m a very verbal communicator. I really want to know how he feels about me and us but at the same time I don’t want to be “that girl” always trying to get him to tell me how he feels cuz I know men don’t communicate like that. To me love isn’t only a feeling but also a commitment to keep trying with someone even when they bug you. Help me! How do I approach this!?
