My boyfriend says he doesn't like taking pictures & neither do I but I'm willing to take pictures of us together to show the world he's mine, or at least the people I talk to that I'm taken. He says we should at least wait 5 months & then we can take a picture. When I ask why so long he gets smart with me. For example I asked him why he doesn't wanna take pictures and he said "because I dont like pictures. I dont even take family pictures. I dont like taking pictures." He then got smart with me after and said "3 enough for you?" As in are those 3 "reasons" enough for me.
He's also really not sympathetic. If he hurts my feelings and I confront him he will just say "well I'm being honest. I'm not going to lie." And if I tell him he should at least apologize he says "Well if I apologize I won't mean it. So why should I?" It ready hurts when he says that to me. We've been together for about a week or a week and a half and he's already hurting me with the things he says.
Am I just overreacting? If not, what should I tell him? :/ I'm really upset.

As far as the picture thing goes, I can relate. I can be pretty self conscious around cameras and hate other people taking picture of me, because I think I'll look bad. It takes me like fifteen minutes in front of a mirror checking my hair before I can confidently take a picture. Just leave the issue alone. People who feel the need to upload pictures of their significant others just come off desperate and like they're putting up a front.
As for the hurtful comments, he probably isn't doing it on purpose. Some people, especially men, have a tendency to speak without thinking. He's probably just a naturally blunt person, which can't really be changed because it's a personality trait. You'll have to decide if you're willing to live with his bluntness or if it's a deal breaker.1
