I feel that now at least I got it out there, so my partner knows how I feel. I haven't given up on it. I feel that sometimes, things take time to get used to, so when I feel like stirring the pot again, I will bring it up to gauge and see if any progress has been made in the area.
I'm not doing this to become a nuisance or to start fights. I feel that even though my partner may not change, it's important that he knows I'm not going to change either in what I would like our relationship to be.
As futile as it may be, it's probably the only way that I can be true to myself at this point.
You just summed up my internal feelings so accurately. Thank you
And I hope things smooth out for you and I both!
