Perhaps I should work on wording my sentences more passively, but this is not natural to me. He is a very defensive person (even when I'm not being accusatory), and when he goes on the defensive I follow suit. It's hard for me to remember to take a step back when he's behaving that way.
I don't think we know each other as well as we should, but perhaps I think he's deeper than he is. He says I know him better than anyone else does, and he would know best. I wish he understood me better, but a lot of people don't understand me so I can't really fault him for that.
