I'm not sure if LeBlanc not saying "I love you" should bother me this much, but it does. A couple times, I was thinking about it since last weekend, and I teared up. Truth be told, it hurt more than I thought it would when I didn't read those words on his anniversary card, last weekend. It was too much to keep inside. I told him, today.
me: I don't want you to say anything that you don't mean. But I wonder when you would be ready to say them, or if you would be. It's been bothering me.
LeBlanc: I don't know, Des. I'm very slow at emotional and relationship stuff. What does that mean to you - love?
me: It would mean that I am someone who is special in your life. Someone you care deeply about. Someone whom you may have a future with, one day.
LeBlanc: You are special to me. Very special. In a good way. And I always looking to spending time with you. And I want to keep spending time with you.
me: What does it mean to you - love?
LeBlanc: I don't know.
LeBlanc: I'm not too good at this emotional part. I am very slow at relationship stuff, I think I need to take some time and think.
I'm not sure if it was the right thing to tell LeBlanc how I felt. My original plan was just to leave it until he is ready to say it. However, I think its important that he knows that going on in my head, and something is obviously bothering me. I don't want him to "fix" it and tell me something that's not true.
What do you think?? Would you say something in my position???
