Should i just start being sweeter?
I have autism and the guy i'm dating has autism and ADHD. We attempted dating once before but I thought he was very overbearing.I brought it up with him and often complained about how romantic he was.
Now that I have gotten a new chance with him which I am very happy about he is nothing like that.He is very careful in displaying emotions.I tried to question him about this.He said that maybe the reason he doesn't talk about his emotions is because he already told me how he feels when we dated last year.Then he said "and maybe its because it's your turn to tell me your emotions now" which may be true.I have never told him how I feel about him and I never give him compliments.
I told him I find it difficult to display my emotions to which he said we'll have to practice it.Then he started asking me a bunch of random questions and according to him to help me open up more.I dont know how that is supposed to help ?
Last year he said he loves me after a few weeks and now he's all "I like you a lot" but he's also insinauted he sees a future with us.
Should I just relax and start being sweet and romantic to him???Like heart emojis in chat and such???I just feel so embarrassed about it I am very scared of rejection and vulnerability.Is it right for me to tell him to start being romantic with me again if I havent even told him how I feel about him or showed it???I just felt its fair because at least before he was more comfortable with it than me.But is he right its my turn to start???
