So like I said in previous posts
, I love dating nerds and intellectuals, though sometimes they make me feel dumb. Even so, I love listening to my boyfriend talk about the inner workings of his record player, how he restored his grandfather's one-hundred year old Victrola
and the philosophies of Nietzsche and Darwin. I don't know enough to respond, but he enjoys talking, and I love listening.
Lately, however, he's been acting very different.
He's switched from lecturing to being very silly all the time, and he rarely talks like he used to. I like when he's being cute and tickling me or bantering nonsense words back and forth once in a while. It breaks up the seriousness of our conversations, but to have a super silly guy all of a sudden is getting exhausting. It feels like I'm dealing with a child, not a twenty-year-old man. I try to talk to him about what he's reading, and instead of answering me, he starts singing, or dancing or something similar.
I asked him to stop, but he's becoming sillier by the day. I miss my old professorly boyfriend. I don't understand the sudden change, and I'm not sure how to ask him what's going on. Either way I love him, but I'm worried he's not telling me something. I'm afraid he thinks I'm too stupid to understand.
Should I just straight out ask him why he's being so silly all of a sudden or just let it go? Have you ever dated someone who suddenly switched personalities for the worse (or better)?
