    The fact that you are still in a relationship is demonstration of his regard, a man this pragmatic wouldn't be there otherwise. It sounds very similar to the relationship between my partner and I. You are aware that Northern Europeans are not particularly demonstrative? actions speak louder than words. Why change a man you fell in love with? He's not trying to do that to you.

    i even threatened to leave and he would cry and beg me to stay and that he would change but he never does. it like the only time he cares about our relationship is when i have one foot out the door.

HE'S A JERK! bye-bye!! god, don't women have any self respect anymore?

    Re: Boyfriend shows little to no emotion...HELP!

    Thank you, LC for the clarification. I am resolved to put a reason for a
    bump any time in future!

    Emmaf, your boyfriend is playing with your head. I don't mind at all
    listening to people tell their troubles, and I can be sympathetic, I
    many years ago was in that situation.

    It's not going to get better. At best, if you could get your bf to go
    to counseling with you, that might help. But my guess from long
    experience is that he LIKES the way things are, and trying to keep you
    under his heel.

    You simply have to take control of your life, and get out and make it
    better. All the sympathy in the world that I (or anyone else) can give you
    won't really do diddly to help. We are far removed from you geographically
    in all likelyhood, so that's the end of THAT.

    You say you don't have any money or a support system? Well find a
    women's and children's shelter near you. Or a Domestic Violence
    hotline. Or whatever else you can find, they are out there. Someone
    will really help you to get your situation BETTER.

    Good luck.

    Re: Boyfriend shows little to no emotion...HELP!

    This is sounding like serious emotional problems, in terms of your boyfriend. Sounds like he is a sociopath. You sound like a very intelligent, smart, intuative girl. I've run into someone like this before. Very same behavior and it was very difficult to handle. When I needed to be understood and was down emotionally he could not relate to my sadness. There was no comfort. He could not connect. I cried in agony and he just sat in front of me, looked at me, and handed me a tissue. It was all too mechanical. I felt like I was crazy, that I wasn't worth the trouble. Being away from him and upon further reflection he just didn't have any feelings. No empathy, no compassion, could not put himself in my shoes. Its scary being around someone like that. Someone "normal" would have at least tried to say kind words of comfort and quite frankly that's all I would have needed. Don't settle for this behavior. He may be perfect in every other way, so was this guy- and not a boyfriend, but you deserve someone that will be there emotionally in a normal way for you. Sorry, but there are people like this in the world and I never want to run into one like that again. I hope this reaches you, sister.

    Sounds like he is a sociopath.

    A sociopath ?
    You can make that kind of analysis from a 2nd parties perception about a person consisting of one paragraph ?
    That is some really critical thinking sister.
