I love Dark Boyfriend, there is no doubt in my mind. I am lucky that he tells me daily that he loves me...but, sometimes he tells me every 30 minutes and it seriously annoys me.
Also, when he is in that mood to tell me every 30 minutes, it comes out almost pleading and/or a question, but not quite. To me, it sounds like a plea for attention. This also means that whatever I'm doing, whatever I'm concentrating on, I have to stop to tell him I love him, too. I don't know why he does it, and I haven't been able to tell what is different from one day when he does it to the next when he doesn't. It's also not like I don't tell him I love him unbidden because I do!
Part of me also feels like him constantly saying it without an recourse cheapens it. If he can just spew it out on a whim every 30 minutes, what makes that romantic time any more special?
I can't seem to get the words out to tell him that it annoys me. Who is annoyed by their SO telling them they love them? Me, I guess, but that also bothers me. Every time I think to tell him, I sound ungrateful, rude, and plain old mean. In my head, whatever I have to say sounds like, "How dare you tell me you love me?! You're so stupid and lame and uncool and pathetic, you stupidhead." That's not at all it, but I can't think of any good way to say that it is annoying and cheapens the real I love you's. Help, please, before I stop answering him altogether...
