POLL: He won't put the moves on

Friday, December 09, 2011 - 12:00 AM

Q: I've been dating a guy for about four months. I feel really strongly for him, and possibly love him. He is very laid back and an introvert. He doesn't show much affection unless I initiate it. I prefer to be physically intimate every time we see each other. Recently things have changed. He started saying that he is tired or not in the mood, when before all I had to do was kiss him and touch his waist to get him in the mood. I feel like he is not as attracted to me or there is some sort of problem with his lack of showing affection. I told him I don't want to feel like I have to coerce my boyfriend to sleep with me - he should be making the moves. He said that sometimes he just wants to relax and snuggle. We didn't really resolve anything other than that he said maybe he needs to be more in touch with my feelings. Should I be nervous?

POLL: What should she do?
29% (399) Leave him. He's not into you.
29% (404) Learn to read his moods.
22% (312) Give him space and time.
10% (146) Jump his bones.
7% (102) Set a schedule for sex so no one has to initiate.

What do I do?
