  • Get ready for a long ride! I've found most men don't really turn into men until they are about 28 =( Then they still remain childish in some ways, especially when they are sick =)

  • Hate to break to you, but hes 18. Its gonna be a long while before he grows up (you too from the sound of it). Hopefully you are still in school.

  • lol.. he sounds just like my husband..
    ugh its hard.. they usually will only open up if you A scream at them so much to the point you make them so angry they say hurtful things. or B you can just wait till he opens up. I am inpatient and I have to tell him why i am mad. Men are not mindreaders and although it seems obvious to us it isnt to them. and as for the sorrys, my hubby doesnt even say sorry ( usually because he doesnt know why he is sorry and I have overreacted)
    So basically you need to just be patient.. dont snap just tell him what he has done or hasnt done has upset you and you would like him to tell you how you feel about it or if he is unsure as to what has just happened).
    these men are hard to crack but they wil open up over time.. Iv been married for 2 years been together for 5 and he still takes time.
    he is also young too so may not have relationship experience? I was my hubbys first and only GF.
