I apologize in advance if this seems like I'm speaking in a series of unorganized thoughts:
There is this girl that I have been seeing for the past three months. We like to do fun things together and we have a lot of fun. She is honest, truthful, and loyal, but oftentimes she can be too blunt. She is also too sensitive, I am finding myself having to constantly walk on eggshells and choose my words strategically to avoid causing offense.
She is having a hard time opening up to me, both intimately and sexually. I have given her the benefit of the doubt and have exercised a lot of patience with her because the last thing I want to do is pressure her. Last night, she laid down another "truth bomb on me". She stated last week that she tried to make plans with me and that I blew her off. I didn't feel like I did as she hinted via text that "it was okay" and "it's whatever you want to do, babe". She went on to say that her needs were not being met, so why should she attempt to satisfy mine. Of course, it turned into a discussion about sex that I deflected as best as I could.
I do all sorts of nice things for her like cook her food, make her breakfast, walk her dog, make her coffee in the morning, visit her at work, and I am just exhausted from all of the efforts from being patient. It's also clear that I have a lot more passion for her than she does for me--and honestly I don't think I can handle being in a situation where the feelings aren't mutual. She finally tells me what she wants and says "I shouldn't have to tell you, you should have to ask".
I'm to the point to where my spirit is absolutely broken. She said she would work on her approach and be less blunt and confrontational. I've had it. I thought we were both happy and having fun, and now I'm not anymore. I don't want to put myself out there and be affectionate to her when she will rarely do the same for me. Usually when this happens, I don't act like an asshole, I just emotionally shut down.
I know that some of you are going to say "just cut your losses and walk away", which is what I'm seriously considering doing. I also want to stick around a little while longer, at my emotional expense, to see if she will come around, but long enough until someone who can fulfill my needs and allow me the opportunity to reciprocate comes along. I know it's a dick move, but now it's a matter of self preservation.
What advice do you have for someone in my situation?
