How to handle a one sided relationship
Im 51 have been seeing a guy for 17 months, he still hasnt fallen in love with me, doesnt care if we go days or a week without seeing each other(he lives 10 minutes away) Sex life sucks his not highly sexually and needs help in this department(not that thats a real issue) doesnt care if we go 2-3 days without speaking. Im very content when with him but when we're appart I often resent him and have anxiety, any professional advice on how to handle this would be appreciated
Chook, there's bugger all professional advice here....it's just told as we see it. On the other hand, if you're not 100% happy with the relationship and what you would expect and need after 17 months of dating, then have a yarn to him about it. If this doesn't get him to sit up and take notice, then walk away. You're either very content with him or you're not.
Why are you working so hard to make this happen?
Seventeen months is enough time for you to realize he is emotionally unavailable, no good in bed and does not care to nourish the relationship.
Move on and find a nice guy who knows how to treat a lady.
