Hello ladies, please help! I’m 65 and have been in a relationship for around 16 months. We don’t live together but have recently got engaged. We spend 2 nights a week together but see eachother everyday to walk our dogs. He’s very supportive and does a lot for me and is pressurising me to spend more time with him and start talking about dates to get married. I'd be happy to do this but he's become increasingly cold towards me (showing very little physical affection) and can be taciturn and moody.
When I mention this to him he just shrugs it off and reassures me that he loves me. I’m feeling more and more unhappy and all attempts at communicating my needs to him have failed. He always ends up telling me I’m being emotional (of course I am!) and shuts down the conversation. Last night I was staying at his but ended up going home because I was getting the cold shoulder. I feel I should end this relationship as it’s not making me happy but after 12 years of being single, I’m scared of being alone! My family is rampant with cancer and I feel it's going to be me next and will need someone to support me (I do have a lovely daughter though). I keep telling myself I’ll give him one more chance and then going back on it. This formerly fairly contented independent woman has become so needy and I feel trapped. Should I give him an ultimatum (and vow to stick to it) or just end it?
