Dear Robyn and Skippy,
I have now been in a relationship for 7 months and I still find that my partner is not very romantic. I have had several conversations with him about this, and expressing my desire for simple romance on a regular basis. I have made suggestions such as sending a cute picture that reminds him of our relationship, a quote, a song, love letters, really anything that is more than saying “I love you”.
He makes sure to say that wonderful three word phrase everyday, but I feel that real love should be showing it rather than saying it. We still get along great otherwise, and talk every day, I just feel like there is something missing. (I should add that I send little reminders of love frequently but without reciprocation I feel less inclination to keep sending mine.)
Am I asking for too much or is he just not putting in the effort?
Ask Fort Collins, please give some guidance on this situation.
