I don't get his response

We've been in a relationship for almost 9 months. I don't get his response though. I don't see how I've made him a better person? If anything he's made me a better person. Do you think he just felt obligated to say that or something?

(I am a very affectionate person. Stuff like this is regular. I know it's annoying but I tried to stop and can't. It's just in my blood to be kind/lovey. Also, I also believe that when you need to tell someone stuff like that, you should because you might not be around tomorrow to do it)

Edit- I guess this came off way cringy. I just meant to appreciate how he was being patient with me while I was dealing with things and either overreacting on him or just picking little arguments here now and then. I'm definitely embarrassed now!
