I’m confused a little about a guy I have feelings for.

Customer Question
I’m confused a little...

I’m confused a little about a guy I have feelings for. There’s plenty of mixed emotions

Expert's Assistant: The Psychologist will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Psychologist can help you best.

We had an argument a couple of months ago we finally got over that. He told me he didn’t see things working out, but that was two days after our argument. We reconnected again yesterday by me saying hey. He carried the conversation on for a good bit and quit relying out of the blue. It’s like he cares to a point, or is hiding his feelings. We fell out over a drinking problem and I really want to move forward with him, it it’s like I can’t.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Psychologist should be aware of?

He drinks and I wish he would change because he’d be an excellent man without it. I feel like that’s our biggest problem.

It's kind of a story. I was 28 at the time when I met my 25
I was 28 at the time when I met my 25 year old boyfriend. I didn't want to date him at first. I was his boss and I thought he was too young. But he acted very mature and came on strong. We started to date and he made me feel amazing. He would only look at me. He told me he needed me and loved me unconditionally and that no one was like me. A few months into the relationship I got pregnant. He didn't want to be a dad yet and asked for an abortion. I thought I'd end up a single mom if I kept the baby this early in a relationship so we got an abortion and I went on birth control. Exactly 1 year later I got pregnant again. He called to make an appointment for another abortion. I told him no way I'd never do that again! So I chose to keep the baby. At first he was so mad. He swore I did it on purpose. But eventually he came around. 2 weeks after we announced our pregnancy at work I was let go. He told me I should sue them for treating me unfairly. He was right so I did. Then he got mad that I filed a law suit. He told me what will the company think of him if he takes his gf to the “circle of excellence trips” if I tried sueing them? Then I discovered I was high risk pregnancy. I was in and out of the hospital. At first he was attentive but then it seemed like it was annoying him. So my parents had me stay with them so they could take me to the hospital and he could rest. While I was at their house he texted me saying he wanted me to move out. He said he wasn't in love with me anymore, his life wasn't improving with me in it and he needed to grow, he was done with me. At this point I had just turned 30 and I was 7 months pregnant. So he left and stayed with him mom and didn't even help me pack. Fast forward to the birth of our daughter. He missed it because he lives 2 hours away. She was born a month early bc of the complications and almost died. I had an emergency c section and needed two blood transfusions. He wouldn't stay over night at the hospital to keep an eye on the baby (I couldn't move) and she was in NICU. I thought he had broken up with me Bc he just wasn't ready to be a dad. He visited her every once in a while but then would get mad and tell me he wanted “alone time” and over nights. He started this when she was 2 months old and premature... … read more
