I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years now and we have two DD's. He is an awesome father and loves our girls. He actually makes parenthood look so... EASY. Which really gets to me because I struggled with motherhood from the start (anxious about doing everything 'right' ect). My bf is not a big conversationalist, but lately it is really getting to me that he just does not seem to care at all about what I have to say or how I feel. He just seems completely indifferent. When I try to initiate a conversation, he just continues watching television or lets the conversation die with simple answers and zero questions from his side. He is an excellent father and provider but just such a horrible partner. Is it selfish of me to want to him to show ME some interest? He doesn't often ask how my day was (though he asks the girls without fail) but he professes that he doesn't do 'small talk' so basically I feel that I am boring him when I try to talk to him even in general conversation. The thing that really, really is playing on my mind lately is the fact that he probably isn't interested in me anymore and that our relationship is likely headed for the rocks but I want him to VERBALISE these feelings. I don't want to keep playing 'happy families' if this is how it is going to be. I just wanted to get this off my chest. I'm sorry if it doesn't make much sense. But long story short - shouldn't your partner be interested in your thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams etc? Especially if you intend to be part of each others lives?
