You would be getting a lot more claps for this story if guys weren’t so damned adverse to talking about their feelings.

I’m sharing this article with my girlfriend with whom I’ve been making Herculean efforts to make clear my needs since we first met. I have high hopes for our relationship and telling her these things is partly why, I’m sure. I even tease that I seem to be the girl in this relationship.

Us touchy feely types have a world to give; we just need someone who will not resent our needs but instead try their best to fulfill them. We crave an ever growing glow of appreciation in a relationship just as our partners do.

Thanks for posting this story.
