I am almost 32 and I am seeing a man who is 47. We were friends before this relationship started for around 2 years. He is the type of person who is quiet about his goings on in life. I was raised to let my loved ones know that I love them. He on the other hand was not brought up in that type of home...they don't discuss feelings. My issue is that I have told him I love him and I think he loves me, but won't tell me with words. He helps me out around my house all the time and shows me he loves me by the way he touches my hair or holds my hand. But I really would like to hear the words. He says that I should know that he cares about me because if he didn't, he wouldn't be around.
Needing to hear those 3 little words
