My boyfriend and I have been together for quite awhile and after some retail therapy today I began to think about some of the negatives of my relationship. We've been together about a year and he has paid for two dates, he has no job, he likes to party, he has never boughten me flowers/cards/bears. The sex is good, but he usually focuses on his own pleasure. Now don't get me wrong, I understand that relationships will have their difficulties but I just feel like I am missing out. He is sincere and he genuinely loves me and is always there .. . What would you do? - Thanks!

"I just feel like I am missing out. He is sincere and he genuinely loves me and is always there .. ."
Yes, but do you love him? Or do you love what he *could* be?
Is this current treatment too big a deal to accept for now (aka do you like it "enough")? Could you tolerate not going out, his not having a job, focusing on his own pleasure, etc. for the rest of your life with him?
You could try having a frank talk with him about it, but if you already have, I can almost guarantee he won't change.0
