I woke up this morning to a text from my boyfriend wishing me a happy early birthday. He asked if I wanted something special. Yes, yes I do want something special. I want a date. I want a real date. What did he respond? He works every afternoon this week. As if that made a difference. We’ve been together almost a year and he’s never once taken me out on a date. I don’t want to keep our relationship a secret anymore. I want to go out with him. I want him to meet my friends. My friends and I are getting together Saturday night for a game night…all my friends are bringing their boyfriends, except for me. I’m sick of this. Why can’t I have a normal boyfriend? One who actually wants to spend time with me, outside of our bedrooms.
When we first got together, I used to ask him when the lust would wear off. Well, its worn off. I still love him. But the sex is no longer enough. I still love the sex, but I need more. And sadly, I think he knows it. He knows he’s not enough for me. He’s trying his best, but that’s just not enough. He once told me that I should get another boyfriend. But that’s just not acceptable. I want him, not someone else. Am I asking too much from him?
