how does one approach there BF with the subject of feeling less important than before, and that going to bed after not seeing him all day n after trying to have just a simple "how was your day" conversation in silence is making me feel like I'm no longer wanted. he loves my kids n interacts with them like they are best buds n I love that but doesn't seem like I can have a conversation with him about anything.
n PSA no im not jealous of the kids n him. I love it n encourage them to bond especially with my oldest remembering her father leaving n telling her he doesn't want to be a dad anymore.

    Girl. I'm sorry! I could have written every single word. This is my life right now. I've literally tried everything I could think of. Communication apps, tiktoks about it, suggesting he join me in therapy. expressing carefully, kindly and well thought out how important communication is to me. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I constantly feel like I am a bother to him. That wanting to interact is being too everything. Too much, too needy, too emotional. Sorry I just vented instead of providing any actual help. But I get it. 😢

    The last thing I want to do is talk about my job when I get home. Maybe talk about things you want to do together in the future. Like house projects or vacation destinations. Sometimes just being present together. Does your family play games together?
