We get a lot of advice questions coming in at EMandLO.com, but sadly, we just can’t answer them all. Which is why, once a week, we turn to you to decide how best to advise a reader. Make your call on the letter below by leaving your advice in the comments section.
I feel unappreciated by my boyfriend: he doesn’t go out of his way to do nice things for me and doesn’t really seem thankful for all the nice things I do for him. I want to show him how to appreciate me, but we just end up fighting. He’s a good boyfriend, I just feel hurt by this lack of explicit thoughtfulness, and don’t know what to do to get him to appreciate me more.
