[ - ] S/O on overly picky NY single women: About 25 years ago, a good friend of mine warned me off my then boyfriend. He didn't send flowers, wasn't romantic and didn't call me 3 times a day. All that was true. He was, however, kind, decent, fun, a good friend - to me and others. We've been married for 25 yrs next month. He's a great husband, a good father and adores me. She is still single. I "taught" him about the flowers thing and she's still looking for someone "romantic". Just saying.... Look at his values, not the superficial junk. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sounds like you are both equally at fault. He is overly off-putting in response to you always "pushing him" (his words). You are constantly making decisions for the two of you - which is undermining, yet you think it your right and get frustrated when he tries to slow you down. But him, justifiably, trying to slow you down and find space for his own decision-making and preferences, has now, over time and frustration, turning into endless stalling, which makes you (rightly) frustrated. You both first need to understand this pattern, then discuss how you feel, then agree to both change, and agree a new way of dealing. Thanks. That will be 10x$300 for the therapy. [ Reply | More ]

Change the pattern. Start talking about it. Tell him what you just told me "this is really important to me. It is straining our relationship. W need to do something about it. We need to change this dynamic. We need help". See if he agrees. Important - this conversation is not about blame not about "him" or "his behavior". That can all come later. [ Reply | More ]
