My fiance "pouts", over the lest of things. He will go for days and no look toward me, he want make eye contact, he want talk. I feel as if I am walking on egg shells, the least thing, and he will just get that look. Yet, with everyone else he is friendly, pleasant. If you knew him you would never believe he could be capable of this.

Tonight, he is sitting, watching t.v., he hasn't spoken to me since 8:30 pm, yesterday, yet we have had friends here for a birthday celebration, he was so nice to them, yet managed to never speak to me once. As far as I know, I am the only person he does this to.
I have seen this man's daughters talk to him so mean and use such crude language...his x-sister-in-law recently saw him, the greeting she gave him was vulgar and degrading, yet he laughed as loud as anyone, like he really enjoyed it. He laughs it off, says it's nothing, they didn't quite mean it, or he will say it never happened, but with me,...well,.... I don't have words,.... I am just exhausted from trying to not hurt his feelings...I can't talk to anyone, I don't want to embarass him or betray him, but my life is very sad these days.

I'm not so sure it will help, this pouting always last at least 3 weeks, sometimes longer. I sure don't want to make things any worse.

Years ago i worked with a man he would be real nice, then one day come in and be distant, he would be sharp if he (had to answer your question) At first i thought maybe i had done something, but the guys i worked with said no, this is just the way he is, we ignore him, then if he talks to us first we speak to him.As the years went by i did what was advised and everything went well. A woman came to work in our dept.and soon became involved with this man i will call joe who had the attitude, I remember her following Joe around saying what did i do, i am so sorry, this woman spent a great deal of time worrying about joe's mood, And after a time Joe relished in the feeling that someone would take responsibility for his problems, I could see how little joe really was, and how mean, these two eventually married, soon we heard stories joe would take her little girls t.v. away, in both her pregnancies Joe ruined her happiness by constantly accusing her of having affairs, he would lock her and the kids out of the house, throw there toys away, finally this woman left him. and never went back, i have never seen a ex-wife hate someone as much as she hated him. Run do not walk away from this man, he is abusive in the worst way, the only reason you are there is so he can play this hideous silence game, if no one is there, who would care if he did not talk for weeks. He does not love his self or you.

If his silence last 3 weeks or longer, that could mean he is only 2 or 3 months out of the year with you, open your eyes, he does not want you. ewwww,please shake him off, before it is to late.

I don't know much about behavior and things of that nature but, I have agree with everyone above. He's being mean and hateful and I think it would be best to walk away and never look back. It should make you wonder why he was divorced a first time.
