  • Guys are stupid about this sort of thing. Here's what you each need to ask...are you better off WITH or WITHOUT this person. ANd finances cannot be the only factor. EVERYTHING works into the equation.

  • He was put on the spot. Give him some time to think about the question. If he still gives a lame answer, you might need counseling to help reconnect.

  • He is an idiot. I agree just because he like watching movies with you is no reason to stay with someone. It would be better to just be a friend, cuz friends do that.

  • LOLOL You aren't married to mine are you?? We were fighting about that same thing a few nights ago. One of the things that HE loves? That I'm more of a smart ass then he is! Yeah...that's what I thought.

    I think guys say that kind of stuff because sometimes they feel embarrassed to the 'mushy feelings' as a friend of mine once put it. I have found out from a friend of ours that when DH is over at his house that he talks about me non-stop. Absolutely raves about my cooking, but at home he just wolfs it down without a word. Go figure.

  • First start off asking yourself any question you would be asking him . Could perhap write in all out What you Love about him .. give it to him . Let him think abou it a few days .. Then perhaps ask him if he could write down why it is he loves you. Might be easier for him to write it than being put on the Spot in answering , Plus it will give him alitle time to think of how he would like to word it . Cause if I asked mine right now Why he loved me ( while he's playing Wii) he would answer somthing like Cause i'm a good cook. So they hate having to give them answer right on the spot.
