Sometimes it feels better to both of us.
If I show you affection because I think you want me to, I’m putting the onus on you to affirm my affection and love.
Yes, this is what I want. You are doing it right.
A responsibility you didn’t ask for, and likely don’t want.
On the other hand if I come to you when I want you, you can rest in my touch, free from being the caretaker of my feelings.
Knowing that I am acting selfishly, you feel desired.
