Think back on your most recent relationships. How often did you utter the words 'I love you'? If you can count the number of times on the fingers of one hand, you have a big clue as to a major part of your relationship problems.
You don't like to express emotions. Your thought processes are geared toward evidence, logic and what can be tangibly perceived with the senses. Feelings frustrate you, because they cannot be measured, calculated or based in historical fact. They are ephemeral, inconstant and by their very nature, impossible to confirm by facts or figures.Not everyone is in the same mental boat as you. Most people like to have the liberty to express their feelings at any given time. After you've required them to quantify their emotions, they don't stick around to tell you how they feel anymore; they move on to greener pastures. You're smarter than you realize; give yourself some credit, and stop expecting all forms of communication to be factual or cerebral. Create a pathway from your heart to your mind and articulate your feelings. You, and your partner, will be glad you did.
