My boyfriend and I are in a tense phase right now. Both of us are a bit touchy, kind of mad at each other and we are not speaking much. He is making effort to contact me a few times in the day, but I am not responding too well to it. He tried to tell me that you can tell me your feelings, maybe it'll help, and he wants us to become happy with each other. So when he called me afterwards, I tried to express my feelings, but then he took it all personally and that I was mistrusting him. I left the conversation. He tried to contact me later that he misses me and wanted to talk about how my day, and how I was. I was not very responsive. We have not slept together in the last 4 or 5 days due to the tension, and this is the longest that we have gone without it. He tried to initiate it a few days ago, but I was not responding. I have not been this hurt before and this is causing me to pull away from him. Plus I feel I can't express myself right now without him getting all touchy and personal. Without being able to express myself, I am not able to go back to normal with him. I am wondering if sleeping with each other could ease the tension and perhaps better the situation? Could it make the situation worse? Should I let him initiate it again? Or try to initiate it myself?
