Does he even care about me? When I ask for more, then he pulls away from me.
As far as the dance of intimacy goes, this is a common relational pattern.
It goes something like this;
You feel like you need more from your partner. More reassurance, care, love & affection and you need this to be okay.
In fact, your need has become a kind of anxiety.
You want him to scoop you up in your arms and reassure you of his love.
But when you ask for this, he just pulls further away from you.
Do you know this dance?
