I've been with my boyfriend for about 5 months now. We hit it off right away and at the beginning, he said he was "crushed out" on me. We usually email everyday and see eachother on the weekends. We don't normally talk on the phone a lot but since we remain in contact through email, I think that is ok. But back to the point - I got my hair done last week and wore something really nice to his house. He made no comment about my hair or my outfit and I really wanted him to say at least something about it. He knew I hadn't gotten my hair done in awhile and I was VERY excited about this appointment. We went out to dinner that night and a lot of guys were smiling and starring and he couldn't even tell me I look nice. I know I should have let it go, but it was bothering me so I asked him about it. He said that he just is not that type of guy and will only give "sincere" compliments - which I agree with, but come on! It sucks when I'm at a bar and a guy approaches him and says "your girlfriend is really pretty" to which he replies "yes, she is." and doesn't say it directly to me. Am I making too big a deal out of this? Should I let it go? I'm secure enough in myself that I know I look good at certain times, but it would be nice to hear sometimes.
We also plan on moving in together in the Spring. So this relationship is pretty serious. And we do say the "I love you's"
Help! I may be making this out to be a bigger deal than it is. Any advice or support is much appreciated!
