Quite often when I read posts on Weddingbee, the first piece of advice that comes to my mind is: talk to him about it! Tell him how you’re feeling! Let him know you’re worried/hurt/upset/concerned/excited/nervous etc. and it really surprises me sometimes because I don’t understand why the OP hasn’t already done so. It made me wonder how open people are with their partners and how easily they feel they can communicate with each other about things that are bothering them.
How open are you with your partner?

I just realised I posted this in Beehive instead of The Lounge… mods if you feel it would be better over there, please could you move it for me 🙂

There is pretty much nothing that I wouldn’t tell my partner. Except for small white lies, like if he got a bad haircut; I would say it looked great.
Other than that, we are both open books. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love feeling completely comfortable and accepted around him.

As PP said, I tell FI more than he really wants to know. Every. Single. Detail.

We’re laid back best mates as well as husband and wife, so we talk about everything. We know each others’ past sexual antics, know our embarrassing stories, joke about farts, discuss fantasies, there’s nothing off limits really.

Mr CL and I tell each other everything, and I always have – even before we were together. Like asscherlover, I’m sure I tell him more than he wants to know. Before I started taking medication to control them, he frequently got pissed off rants about my awful periods in pretty graphic detail. It’s a wonder he can put up with it!

I’m pretty open with my Fi when it comes to my feelings and our relationship, but some things I think he doesn’t need to know or rather vent/speak about to family and friends. So while I have no issues telling anything, I don’t feel that he needs to know everything, that is unless he ask and expresses som interest in knowing.

@asscherlover: Ditto…I tell my hubby too much and probably show him too much too…(as in stuff that most people probably don’t do in front of each other for privacy) I’m an open book – you married me – you get all of me 🙂 hahaha

We have struggled with communication because we are both non-confrontational people and hate to say anything to one another that might be construed as criticism or cause hurt feelings. We’ve been working on this for years, though, and I feel like if something is bothering one of us, we come up with the courage to talk to the other about it. Our communication skills still aren’t perfect, but we’re worlds ahead of where we used to be.

OP I wonder this on the bee constantly.
I tell him everything. He tells me everything.
Nothing is off limits. Bad haircuts, bad breath, less than stellar quickies, weight issues, bodily functions, personal histories, hair removal, girl stuff, all of it.
I actually don’t believe many relationships can withstand not having this level of honesty.
