Boyfriend is Distant After Whispering "I Love You"... Should I be Worried?
Last weekend my Boyfriend whispered "i love you" to me during a post-coital "afterglow" moment :)
Funny thing is he seems to be acting a little distant these days. Should I be worried?
I pretended like I didn't hear it... given that he whispered it so quietly (barely audible) in my ear. I have already said "i love you" to him a month ago -- and not that I am expecting him to say the same -- because for the most part he is a very emotionally distant guy. But since my admission he has outwardly identified that "he cares for me deeply; that he has feelings that he wants to ensure grow and develop, has mentioned twice that he would take a bullet for me (with tears in his eyes), sobbed while he came and had me over for a formal dinner to meet his parents. All good signs I think.
Anyways... he seems to be withdrawing and I am giving him his space to figure it all out. I hope that is the right thing to do.
Do guys really take a while to figure out what the do and don't feel? Do they practice it first before saying it?
I know I muttered it quietly to myself while we were together a few times in the sack... in the same whispered manner before I told him directly. Is it the same for guys?
What's Your Opinion?
