Dear Miss Emily:

Me and my man always fight because I bring something up or want to talk. He never wants to talk and, if we do, it turns into a horrible fight. He barely touches me and I dont think he listens...am I being uptight, or is it him just not being interested?

------------------------------Miss Emily's advice---------------------------

I think it a lot of it boils down to what you want to talk about. If you're not attacking him because you find fault with everything he's doing, then I would say he's a man who is not all that interested in women, or he's not all that interested in you. Many men are "men of few words," and many more want everything to be okay without doing the hard work to make a relationship solid. But not listening if you have legitimate reasons to discuss certain things (and do it in a polite and constructive manner), and not wanting to touch you that often, tells me he's a dud and you need to seek greener pasture -- if you have the guts to do so. Good luck!
