I send random paragraph to my bf saying how much I appreciate him now and then but he told me that he doesn’t like it . He told me not to praise him, like you are the best boyfriend kinds of stuff. He said that it might feed into his ego . I don’t understand what he’s feeling. Can someone explain this in a deeper aspect?

I read your message – navigating the praise game with your BF, right? Totally get it. People have their quirks.Had a client in a similar boat once. Too much praise made them second-guess everything.
Another angle: Maybe your BF had a past rough patch? Sometimes, that stuff sticks, you know?Try toning it down, share specifics. Might ease the vibe.
Quick tip: Chat about how he likes appreciation. Knowing each other’s style helps in relationships.
And, just so you know, if things get tricky, I’m here for a deeper conversation. Counseling can be a game-changer. Up for it? Let me know.
