I have a problem I hope you can help me with:
I love my boyfriend, but I hate his dress sense! He wears the brightest, most patterned shirts I have ever seen, and they disgust me. The worst is bright green silk with yellow sunflowers the size of your hand all over it - it's awful!
Sometimes I even feel embarrassed when we're in public, because his shirts are so hideous. I've tried telling him that I don't like them, but he pays no attention to me.
What should I do?
Tell your boyfriend he can wear those outrageous printed shirts in Hawaii or any of the island countries but when he is with you, you want him to be dressed with toned down shirts. You could also buy one of those outlandish tops and wear it and let him complain. Then you can make a deal with him -- neither of you will subject yourselves to such ridiculous clothes. Or you can insist he wear a jacket so no one will notice his garish outfits. If he really loves you, he'll want to please you .
Give it a try.
