An incredibly common complaint that women have about men is that guys never ask gals how their day was. That’s because we don’t CARE how your day was. Did you consider that?
Guys tend to ask about things that they actually care about, are thinking about, or would like to hear about. What happened to you at work normally doesn’t make that list. Neither does what happened to you while you were shopping or while you were out to eat with your girlfriends. Nobody cares.
The interesting part about this isn’t actually that guys don’t care, but rather that gals CARE that guys don’t care. Is this something you asked about when you first kicked it with him? Did you check to see how often he’d ask you how your day was? You probably didn’t. You probably checked whether he wants to be in a long term relationship, whether he wants to be in a LTR
It would be better for you to just roll with it. He doesn’t care what you did today. So what? That doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t want you to be safe and healthy. It doesn’t mean anything AT ALL, other than that he doesn’t care how your day was. Get over it.
Your option is to dump him and go out with some other guy that isn’t 30% of the man he is, but will consistently ask you how your day was and pretend to listen as you tell him. At that point, you’re going to have different issues. You’re going to have issues about the qualities that this new guy doesn’t have that your former guy had.
So.. Do yourself a favor. You can’t have everything from everybody. If you want your man to care what you did today, do something that he cares about, like spectate the Steelers training camp or learn something interesting about NASCAR or go shop for lingerie. If he happens to be interested in tech stuff, hang out at the Apple Store or something…
Basically, if you want him to be interested… BE INTERESTING! 😀
As much as you claim to want the truth, if THE TRUTH is that he doesn’t care what you did today, you WANT him to care what you did. If you knew he was faking interest, you STILL wouldn’t he happy with that, because you want what isn’t real to be real. Let it go. Study what he’s interested in and you’ll have a better idea how to hold his attention when you have something to say. Why should he be interested in stuff he’s not interested in?
If he’s not interested in politics and you try to talk about politics, he’s not going to want to hear it. Same thing if he’s not interested in talking about sports. How you spent your waking hours when you weren’t around him is just another topic. Stop making it mean more than that. Don’t interpret his disinterest in your daily meanderings, or even your work today as a Rocket Scientist, if that’s what you do, as some sort of indication about his level of interest in having you with him right there that second, messing with you, being in a relationship to you or anything else.
