Ok, so isn't this intimacy?


In marriage or in any close relationship, don't you expect to get some feedback from your "other"

when he (or she) acts upon some suggestion you've made? It doesn't even have to be a suggestion. Could be a simple thought expressed... anything (examples are failing me)

I was recently told - in context of a discussion about lack of communication and intimacy - that I do not HAVE to know whether something I've said has had impact. I was told that it's OKAY if i never know. That all any of us can do is plant seeds (ideas, i guess?) and it is perfectly natural and Fine if we never see results.

umm... Well, it's not okay with me!

Is this in the manual, too?? Has anyone else heard it?
