How to bring it up
While women are terrified of coming off too demanding, men are terrified that they just won’t be able to meet your needs! If you list specific things you want your man to do, he’ll immediately feel intimidated. He’ll think you have exact images in your head of what you want, and any misstep on his part will upset you. Instead talk about the way you want him to make you feel. Maybe you want to feel like he wants to treat you more, or like he wants more time for just the two of you to catch up, or like he wants to experience new things with you, as a way to bond. Draw a vague outline, and he’ll fill it in with activities/efforts he is comfortable with.
