Q My boyfriend is happy to talk about any­thing – ex­cept my feel­ings. Then he gets very un­com­fort­able. What can I do?

AMen hate see­ing their women un­happy. Most men think that if they can fix the cause of their part­ner’s un­hap­pi­ness, things will re­turn to nor­mal and she’ll be happy again. Many men don’t re­alise that feel­ings can’t be fixed; they can only be shared with some­one who doesn’t reach for his tool kit but will lis­ten, com­mis­er­ate and em­pathise. Then she feels that she is con­nect­ing with a friend.
