Do any of you have great boyfriends/husbands who are supportive in many ways, but at times has diarrhea of the mouth? Sorry for the gross analogy but I'm being serious here. My boyfriend is wonderful in a lot of ways, and there is no doubt that he loves me due to all he's done for me and how supportive he is. The problem is his mouth. Sometimes he speaks without thinking, and I'm flabbergasted as to what comes out of his mouth. Then he regrets saying it when he sees it was insensitive or hurtful, and I'm like if he just thought about what he was saying before he said it a lot of conflict would be avoided. I don't want him to feel like he has to walk on eggshells around me but I want him to be a bit more sensitive and aware of what he's saying. Any suggestions?
I would love to hear your stories. FYI — He's not socially inept, most people comment on how nice he is. He's just a little too blunt sometimes with the jokes or comments toward me (when we're one on one, not around other people). He does compliment me too. At times he turns around and ruins it by saying something uncalled for. Thanks for your feedback. Please let's keep it light and positive. I just want to know if some of you can relate and if it's a guy thing in general because they relate to each other in such a raw way.
