"What do you want?"
Honestly, this question gets me so annoyed. I shouldn't have to sit here and tell a grown man what he should be doing to make me happy. This has nothing to do with materialistic items. Clothes, food or money are things I can provide for myself.
All I want from a man is time and love. I don't need to tell you to hit me up throughout your day or set up a date for us to hangout. These are things you should want to do and be willing to make possible. For a significant other to tell you they were too busy to hit you up for an entire day is ridiculous to me. There are 24 hours within a day and 168 hours in a week. So you mean to tell me you couldn't pick up your phone, which is most likely already in your hands, to say "Hello" or "I miss you." If that's the case, then I might not be as important to you as I thought.
I am the type of person to go out of my way to make a significant other happy because that would make me smile. Giving them gifts or setting up a day to spend time together are small things that show the other person that you genuinely care. I understand that everyone is not the same nor do we all have the same thought process. But if time is something you're not willing to make to let someone know you care about them, then you might as well get yourself out of that situation. There are too many people in this world willing to make you smile for you to be stuck with someone that thinks you're afraid to leave them.
ADVICE: Please make sure you understand the dynamics of whatever situation you are involved in. As long as you and the other person are on the same page there shouldn't be any reason for miscommunication. If you're not happy with something, then bring it to the other person's attention as soon as possible. No one is going to change who they are, however if they genuinely care for you they will make adjustments as needed. If things still don't get better, then you know that you might need to move on. Life is too short to be stuck with someone that either doesn't make you happy or doesn't WANT to make you happy.
