in a healthy, close relationship of any kind, when something upsets you, you need to bring it up. as soon as possible, even. cultivate an environment in which you both can talk about things that upset you, with the utmost attention to everyone’s feelings. it’s a really simple thing to do but it’s a thing i’ve been working on for a while and i’m getting actual nice things happening as a result
Getting ready every day and attempting to look your best hoping he notices. Doing little things like; getting your nails done because you know he loves it when you caress his forearm with your finger nails. Buying new clothes just so you can wear something different in front of him. Hoping for something more than just a hello when he sees you. Perhaps. That kiss on the forehead you’ve been craving. Or even just a small peck on the lips. Anything besides a boring, sad, hello. Hoping he has the courage to tell his friends that he’s staying in to watch a movie with his girl or that he’s taking her to a nice dinner. Hoping he shows up with your favorite chocolate when he knows it’s not your best day. Or even just a hand written letter that says, I love you. Wishing he would show you off to the world and let everyone know your his and no one else’s. Craving the day he makes love to you and lays there with you for hours just caressing and kissing you. Putting on perfume behind your ears just to hope he kisses you and realizes you smell nice and tells you he loves the new perfume you’re wearing. Or even wishing he realizes the new earrings you just bought. Wishing that one day he just surprised you with something so special it just made you cry. Waiting for the day he shows up with one single rose just to remind you you’re beautiful. To be told you’re beautiful instead of hot or sexy. If only he knew how much you actually… Adored him.
