My boyfriend is not affectionate in texting and he gets weird about it in person. He said that he has been living alone since he was 16 and he can't be around people for too long. He said right from the start that he hates talking on the phone and I do too. He does send me kiss smilies and he doesn't like arguments. He also calms me down but things are becoming worse because his answers are too short for me to get to know him better and to have deeper conversations. What can I do?
It sounds like he has a bit of anxiety and he does not like confrontation. Why does he need to calm you down?
You either have to let him know that you want more conversation or you need to move on because it sounds like you are trying to have a relationship with someone that you have not met and that never ends well. If it is someone you have met online, move on, if it's someone you have met and they are not really into the conversation then you need to ask yourself if you deserve better and the answer is always yes.
