At first he said that I was right and that this behavior has ruined his past relationships, but then he says that it turns him off that I don’t want to talk about feelings.My dilemma is that he’s a nice guy that I can trust, he treats me like no man has ever treated me, we have common interest and goals, but I’m turned off by his neediness.I am starting to feel like the man in the relationship. Sometimes I feel like he says things in a passive-aggressive way just to see how I will react. This is really stressing me out and turning me off.He reacts emotionally instead of rationally all the time. I told him that it would be best for him to keep his emotions to himself right now and once things get more serious, then we could talk more about feelings.The Marlboro Man is traditional, doesn’t like to talk about his problems, doesn’t like to listen to yours, but he is a MAN.
He has already cried four times when we have discussions where I tell him that all of it is just too much for me.
Is this a deal breaker, or is this something I should just give more time to see if he can overcome it?
There are two poles that women find attractive: The Marlboro Man and the Sensitive Artist.
Problem is that it’s hard to feel CONNECTED to a guy like this.
I finally met an emotionally available, nice guy after going through my fair share of emotionally unavailable men.
We’ve been dating for about two months now and have hit a rough patch.
