Okay... so any of you who just read the "checking girls out" thread that i just posted must think i'm a basket case... i assure you - i'm not! i'm just not particularly busy at work today! i'm a extrovert... plain and simple - i wear my heart on my sleeve and if i have something on my mind, i talk about it. my boyfriend, however, is not the same AT ALL! he stuffs things down inside him like there's no tomorrow. he doesn't talk about things that hurt him or worry him because he thinks that if he acts like it didn't happen or isn't there, it'll go away. we've gotten into some serious arguments where he refuses to talk to me... even in a way that's constructive. if we get into an argument i'll spill my guts and tell him what i think, but he won't budge. i'll ask him what he thinks and he constantly and insistently says "i don't know"... almost like he's trying to make it all go away without dealing with it. he and i have some great conversations about cars, sports, people, etc... but when it comes to talking about us or our life or anything with more depth than tangible things he freezes up. he's told me that i'm not going to change him, and it seems that in order to get any kind of reaction out of him (good or bad) i have to put our relationship on the line. it's almost like he doesn't feel like he needs to put the extra effort in because he knows i'll never break up with him. anyone else ever have a problem like this before?
