I could count on one hand the number of times we went out together in 11 years .

CindyCares agony aunt Off the top of my hat I am tempted to say : because he does not love you. When people say one thing then do the opposite, always believe the action, not the words. Talk is cheap ! Actions require effort, and when people does not want to do the effort, generally it's because they don't care.

In your case though perhaps this is a bit drastic. I guess he loves you in his own self centered, self complacent way. He is sort of taking you for granted because after 11 years he knows that no matter how much he screws up , there is no retribution, you'll grumble but you'll still be there to take anything he dishes out.

Communication is important of course - backed by action.

Explain him gently and not confrontationally why you are unhappy in this relationship and what you would like him to do. Don't ask a lot, compromise, agree on something minor rather than a whole life makeover- something like, he'll take you out for dinner once a month. But then, if he does not follow through, you have to be ready to stop grumbling and step out of the relationship. You can't change people, specially when they don't want to be changed- you can only change yourself and your actions.

talk to him let him know how he is treating you. sometimes a guy won't know how he acts or how differently he treats people until he is made aware of his behavior. i can understand the jealously a bit because you went out secretly cuz to him it can mean a lot of things and most probably negative. the main things is that he needs to know how you feel about the way he treats you.
