Our expert says:
No, I don't think love on its own is enough. Relationship counselling would help, but he'd probably reject the idea. Maybe seeing a counsellor yourself might help you to get things into better perspective, especially about whether you may be expecting a bit too much, and communicating poorly, When you say "all I wanted was a thank you from him" I wonder whether he was able to know that, and whether it wouldn't have worked out better if you'd have explained that calmly to him ?
And Frustrated's advice is excellent --- talk to him more generalloy, about how things are going for him, maybe there are other things irritating him, too.
