My boyfriend is so very hard to read. He doesn't show a lot of emotions for one. It is so hard to tell when he is hurting, angry, stressed, etc. He just lets things roll right off his back. You can have a conversation with him and as soon as he speaks his opinion on whatever it is he is done with it. Or goes back to acting as though nothing has happened. How do they do it? Do you have a man in your life that is just like this and how do you handle it.

My boyfriend is very caring and I care about.No matter what,we are discussing with each other.I think this may be the reasons for the character.Everyone's personality is not the same.Your boyfriend may be to their own as the center,the person was not careful.So he ignored your feelings.You should talk to her.Put your mind to tell him.

i'm a man and i don't act like that. but still, i'd say that the fact that it's not easy to read him is because you don't really know him, or you just can't accept that some people, not only boys, are really like that. i'd also say that don't you ever think that the way he behaves is a reaction towards you. the last thing you'd want is to blame yourself for his behavior.

I will be the first to admit that I am not perfect but where I will lay the blame is actually on his past & past relationships. He has been very open with the fact that he has been treated badly by the women from his past as well as by other friends and family members. He has also made it very clear that he doesn't trust ANYONE but that he trusts me more than anyone else he knows but yet he still won't open up and show some emotions. So, no I do not blame myself as I have been with him through quite a many ordeals from his past during the 3 years we have been together. Thank you for your post. Have a great evening.
