What determines a "good" partner?
So I feel my long-term boyfriend is incapable of giving help. Like he wouldn't know that I am struggling with my bags or its late and I want a ride home. However, I know if asked, he don't mind helping. It just seem that he is oblivious when someone needs help. My friends think its a bad trait and I should leave him since he is not attentive to me. I want to seek advice from the general public if that personality is a minor flaw or a sign he is not a very good partner.
I dont really like asking for help like other girls do or think I should do because i dont want to feel like im taking advantage. If I can do it myself, why not? No matter how tough, you just have to fight it out. But it would be nice to have help.
