If it’s something that you’re not comfortable with and you’ve already explained it to him, and he just doesn’t get it or doesn’t care, then you need to be firmer with him. If he does it again just get up and leave, which will let him know that you’re not kidding about it. Otherwise the only real choices you have are to either just accept it or to dump him, if it’s something that really bothers you. It might seem like a small thing, but if your partner doesn’t care enough to alter something they know genuinely bothers you then that should be a red flag that maybe they don’t care as much about you as you wish they did.
