For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.

Well the first thing will have to be making time to talk about this very important topic - a time that is not right before or after sex, when both of you are relaxed and comfortable. Second, you are the person who has to bring this issue up and be willing to explain how you feel and why you think this is important in your relationship.
Unfortunately, I assume there are other areas in the relationship that you feel "unimportant," and talking to a counselor or clergy member might help. Most insurance companies will cover some emotional counseling, check out whether yours does.
Good luck, and keep in mind that you are important and deserve to be appreciated and cared about.
