I have a great relationship that has lasted over a year. He’s a wonderful, intelligent man. The only problem seems to be that he has a hard time complementing me. I think he thinks its awkward, or something. Do I just overlook it, because of all his good traits? He treats me well, and finds other ways to make me feel special, but my ego thinks theres something missing.
Yeah, no. There’s a difference between legitimate intimacy needs within a romantic relationship and not having your ego stroked often enough.
Just remember, a compliment given out of expectation is no compliment at all.
Don’t be that girl.
