Reader Question:

I have been dating this man for a year and a half and he never takes me anywhere. But he is always saying he loves me. I know for myself that if a man can’t take you anywhere, he doesn’t care that much about you.

So do I move on, or what do I do?

Dr. Wendy Walsh’s Answer:

Erika, you are absolutely right. Love is an action word. And his actions speak louder than words. Make some plans to go out. If he doesn’t pick up the ball and take you somewhere, give him a strict ultimatum. And then follow through with the consequences.
