I have a lot of moments in which I wonder whats going on in my relationship. I try to be understanding, patient, caring, listen to her, even do little things like writing her a poem. Nothing I do though is ever shown any appreciation. Not even a simple "thank you" or "I love it." How do you feel when your partner doesn't you appreciation ever? Do they show you some but it just feels cheap? I don't do the things I do for recognition. Never have, never will. But lately the fact that I take the time to write something sweet for her or do something I know she hates doing just so she won't have to do it later and I don't even get a thank you seems like she just doesn't care. Any thoughts? How about you... how do you feel when you don't get even the smallest sign that you are appreciated?
