^^ i would've been upset if someone told me that too, but mainly because i'd realize that I need to stop focusing on me and my job and focus on getting to know the person im dating. i sympathize with the OP as far as that part goes bc i've dated a guy or two like that. it's boring.
he probably didn't give OP enough attention...what moves her and goes on in her life. ppl like the OP's "boyfriend" have this weird duality. they genuinely love doing for others, but they're extremely self centered in that they can't stop talking about what they do for others and also don't understand emotions separate from their job. they ARE their job. it's sooooooooo annoying and boring.
