I do the same with my boyfriend. I know he loves me and he does show his affection, sometimes I wish he showed it a little more extravagantly
I do hate myself for asking! But I'm the sort that can't hold in what I'm feeling. GOOD OR BAD? I don't know.
:( I'm the same way...except I don't ask boys about it...i brood on it, and keep it inside. I always thing, if I ask them...they'll realize they don't...and poof, they'll leave. Break-ups have made me very guarded.
PS: I love the look on your face and the look on his...they speak volumes. And it's perfect that you can't see his eyes...:-\
