We don't understnd each other...

I am in a relationship, and it seems we r not understanding each other, coz my fiancé says that I concerned with issues that do not help in our relationship. Well I ask things for my knowledge only. He loves me so much and I can tell he loves me. He does not want to be asked anything regarding people. But as for me I like to know how people live. l like to visit friends. He does not etc. I think he is living in another world of his own. Please advise me. Kate

I forgot to say he even called me a boring woman after an argument.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
