I've been dating this man for about 7 months now. I'm crazy about him, I would like to build a future with him.
But, of course there is one big problem. We come from different backgrounds, so we've had different experiences in life. I'm very open and trusting. He's not. He expects people to disappoint him, it's happened most of his life.
The problem is that whenever he's going through a rough time he shuts me out, he won't answer calls or texts. He will go days with no word at all. I try to give him his space so he can work it out. But, it hurts me so much when he does this. I don't know how to get him to understand that he can trust me, that whatever it is we can work through it together. It's gotten to the point recently where I'm not sure how many more times I can do this.
How do I get him to trust me and not judge me by the people in his past?
thanks in advance,
Please, no negative comments.
