Suddenly he is very accommodating.
He waited for me when I came home. I am planning a surprise party for his birthday and he suspects something.
He tried to come to know what it will be. I asked him to consider and tell me this evening if he really doesn’t want to be surprised.
He kissed me and was so nice. Finally. But in the end, I found out he wanted me to do something for him.
It is kind of double-sided. I enjoy his attention and his tenderness. But it is sad it just seems to be a means to an end. I fulfiled his wish because it was not hurting me to do so, but I was not happy. I like to do things for him, but when I am in the mood and when I WANT to. Asking someone if he wants to do something for him is kind of pressure.
Also, in a relationship there should be a balance between giving and taking. So if he wants me to do something for him, why not do something for me first? Maybe this is his only child style again. I don’t like it. It is a shadow on our back-to-good mood.
