My partner has not expressed he loves me but in birthday and last yrs Christmas card he wrote Love,he also wrote love and an xo in my daughter's birthday card just recently.
Because I don't have a big place to have social gatherings he offered to have my daughter's party at his place.
If you have read my other posts you will know that we have been together a year with no verbal expression of love.I am wondering how he feels.I have asked him and his response was we are together and I am faithful to you we have both been divorced and let's not rush I sometimes get mixed signals from him.Just very confused.I am wondering if he does love me but is scared to tell me or express how he feels
He might be afraid to say it as a way of being trapped. Maybe this was how he felt in his first marriage.. Maybe it is a way of losing the upper hand and feeling a bit out of control. I don't know him so I don't know how he behaves..
It honestly depends on the man. I have met both men like alex said and men like LH said. Take a step back and try to look at him objectively instead of emotionally. Just because you have strong feelings or love him doesn't mean he has to be perfect and be the insecure guy instead of the the guy enjoying things while they last.
