I've lived with my partner for over a year now but still haven't heard those three words 'I love you'. He is the sweetest guy and always makes sure he does things to help me and looks after me when I'm ill (I'm waiting for 2 operations). I also know he's not good at expressing his feelings but thought after a year of living with each other he would be wanting to say it. does he care about me?

Hi Hayley - What do YOU think? I'd say actions speak louder than words. But if there is something you need or want from your partner which he is not presently offering, a good move would be to have a conversation with him about it. Making your needs known and asking for what you want are empowering acts, and indicate you are taking responsibility for your own life. If he says no, it does NOT mean he does not care. Included in asking responsibly is leaving space for the other person to answer yes or no. Honour yourself enough to ask for what you want. I hope this is helpful.
