What do you do if you feel a lack of affection in your relationship?
I have been living together with my boyfriend for 6 months. There are times when things are great but often I feel as if to get affection I have to say "I need affection". To me, having to ask for it seems too prompted.
An example is back/neck massage. I have a hard time asking straight up because when I do, he always comments how he's too tired. But I suffer from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and I have always went out of my way to comfort him. So I just mention how my neck is sore, and show him that I hurt. Even bought us a massager because he gives a weak massage with his hands.
