Can you tell me some of the things that happened?

How is his fear affecting your relationship?

Are you officially dating now?

Are you willing to take things slow?

Reply to Ms Chase's Post: something that has happened with him and his ex? Well she was very mean to him like he could never do anything good enough stuff like that...
He frar is affecting us because everytime he feels he is gettin to close he backs off he says he is not understanding his feeling for me he is not sure if im just a safty net for him or if he truly cares but he also says he knows its more then just a friendship between us... We are not officially dating we can see other people not there is no one eles on each side we spend weekends together and see each other just about everyday n talk on the phone everyday, Im more then willing to take things slow, I have told him that i dont want anymore then what he is willing to give me right now.. Im very understanding to how he is feeling but maybe thats why I have become his safty net

Hello Newfie,

Thanks you for that additional info. At some point, we are no longer children, we put away out childish ways and we act like grown ups. Ok, his girlfriend treated him bad, but you are not her. If he has known you for 12 years, then he knows what kind of person you are. If you have dated for 3 months, then you have shown him that you are not like his ex. You have to be the one to decide how long this 'trial' will go on. How long you will be tested before he decides that you are not here to hurt him. He's old enough to see you as a person and not just something that might happen to him. There's nothing wrong with understanding how someone is feeling, but giving too much of yourself without asking for anything in return is a recipe for disaster, not only are you a safety net, but you become a dispensable safety net.

I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more
