My boyfriend thinks that any sign of affection means I want to have sex and that isn't always the case

DEAR DEIDRE: WHENEVER I kiss or cuddle my boyfriend, he takes this as a sign I’m up for sex – which isn’t always the case.

I’m 23 and my boyfriend is 25.

We’ve been together for two years. He’s a lovely guy but this is really bugging me.

I want to cuddle without feeling like I’m being groped but he doesn’t get that.

I have talked to him about it and he always assures me I don’t have to jump into bed with him but, when I turn him down, he gives me this look which makes me feel horrible.

DEIDRE SAYS: This is a common misreading of the signals between men and women.

Say you need to sort out your communications.

You could agree that you will say something like “I really want you” if you are giving him a kiss because you feel like sex.

Otherwise, he should assume it is just a kiss.
