    I think it's a good idea to step back and allow him to express disinterest also. If he's disinterested, don't take it so hard.

    He already said he would watch it with you. This guy sounds like he's trying to please you. If you think you have low self-esteem and can't handle when someone is disinterested in your videos or your opinion, I think you'll end up running into a mental breakdown eventually. You're trying too hard to get people to like you.

    Why not pull back on all this in his face stuff. You know, if something is scare or mysterious people develop more interest. Don't be a pushy salesperson that people avoid. Pull way back. Find better ways to connect. In fact get off the phone to do so.

    Then why didn't you ask him why? Did you ask him why he doesn't want to watch? If you did, what did he say. If you didn't then why didn't you?

    He's going to watch with you so why is this an issue for you even?

    Perhaps I am missing something here but what is the big deal? You like making your videos, so continue to do that. I do understand that you are a bit disappointed but two people are not obligated to like everything that the other likes. That's what makes you an individual. You do some things together (the more important things) and not some others. I, for instance, like to design cards. I used to show my ex (when we were still married) and he couldn't care less. So what? There were plenty of other people who loved my cards. I was somewhat annoyed at his disinterest but what the heck.

    We're talking about small stuff here. Don't worry about the little things.

    Honestly.

    1) Perhaps your videos are not as entertaining as you think. Lots of people paint as a hobby. It doesn't mean they paint well.
    2) he thinks all you care are about likes and views
    3) He wants to get to know you face to face, not troll you on social media.

    Some people don't like to see anyone they want to get to know at face value hamming it up for a camera. I would not force the issue.

    I dated a guy who got hard core into skydiving. I have a hard time thinking of anything else that would be a bigger waste of my time. He really wanted me to share this interest with him. He brought me with him once...know what that's like? You see the airplane take off, you eventually see it overhead (a small spot in the sky), then you see tiny dots dropping from the airplane. Something like 10-15 minutes later the spots are big enough to identify as humans. They eventually land on the ground (he fell) and that's it. I couldn't have been more bored.

    I told him I wouldn't go anymore to watch. He asked if I wanted him to buy me some lessons. I said absolutely not, it would be a waste of money because I would never use them. He really, really wanted me to but I continued to say no. I told him I had no issue with him skydiving to his heart's content but I would do something else.

    I do not for one minute think I should have continued to go watch specks in the sky.

    I'm not sure of the subject matter of your videos but if it's how to apply makeup or do nails or something he's not remotely interested in I can understand why he wouldn't be interested in viewing them. What is the subject matter?

    Maybe he thinks you're trying to get him to help boost your views so you can start selling ad space or something.
