@Contented_J:  How about instead of saying “I really wish you’d____ “

Say “it makes me feel great when you_____” .

Put a positive spin on it. It does work.  My Fiance is shy, and when we first started dating he never really vocalized his feelings.  Until I started letting him know how I felt In certain situations. I always try to keep things positive.

We’re kind of the same way. We can have those conversations, but it’s always tough and rarely goes as in depth as I’d like. My advice would be keep up with the constructive criticism, but also make sure you up your compliments and statements of appreciation to balance it out and keep him from feeling attacked.

@Contented_J:  Same with my FI’s family. they’re not very affectionate. Although he is working on a better relationship with his dad. I don’t know how long you’ve been dating but it took a good three years for Fiance to Feel completely comfortable expressing himself.  Now I can’t get him to shut up lol! Give it some time and you’ll both be fine.
