When I work with guys, I put it to them like this: There is no such thing as her “just knowing” how you feel or that it “should be obvious”.
Truth be told, this isn’t a guy problem, it’s a human problem – it can be easy to assume that the other person knows how we feel… So what ends up happening is the guy feels like it’s obvious that you know he loves you. or that she should know already and that it would feel forced or fake if they said something that they felt was obvious.
Then step 2 is that you should let him know how things he used to say and do felt.
You can just mention it offhand and phrase it in a way that says that you appreciate that side of him because most guys don’t have that ability but he does.
These are guys that just take action and they don’t have to say how they feel because it’s clear through their heroic pursuit and protection of her.
So on a subliminal level, the message is communicated to guys that the badass guy who gets all the chicks is the guy who doesn’t need to say anything.
We have almost everything in common and I know he loves me too.
I’ve always known that he’s not the romantic type but in the beginning of the relationship, he always used to say sweet things at unexpected times to give me butterflies, he used to take me out to romantic dinners, etc.
Guys want to be perceived as having abilities and skills.The art is in letting him know how you feel after you let him know that you’re not blaming or accusing him about something.Defenses always must be down first before any real communication can take place.When you get down to it, relationships are as much about love as they are about enlightenment.I don’t mean that in some kind of religious or spiritual sense – I’m just saying that a large part of relationships is bringing your partner to a new place of acceptance and understanding of you, himself/herself and the world through what you share together.From what you wrote, it doesn’t sound like he’s getting bored with you or that anything is wrong or a warning sign.
