Customer Question
we finally talked face to...
we finally talked face to face. He said that i do have a place in his heart but he is scared. When i asked him if he still loved his ex gf he said he don’t think he does. I asked him if he thought one day he would love me completely and he said there was a possibility. He said he didn’t want space and he didn’t want to see other people. I just don’t know what to do at this point. I don’t want to give up but i don’t want to just settle either . I’m so confused !!! I’m frustrated!!!

I am glad he was able to be open and honest. If you leave now you will never know if the relationship could have developed further. Let things be and enjoy your time together and then you can decide if it all works for you.

I just feel like if i stay he needs to work on his issues. He needs to tell me why he wants me to stay . Like i need reasons. Is that selfish and how long ? Do i give it a time frame? I don’t want to beg or force someone to love me. It just seems like I’m giving in to him and his needs
Counselor: TherapistJen, LCSW, CPC replied 3 months ago
Then figure out your needs and ask him for things you need and if he can give it then great..if not then you leave.

I am looking for some help with my relationship. My distance
My long distance boyfriend has asked for space. We had been in the same city over the weekend but coaching different teams and I really did my best to respect his space. I was hurt that he made no time to connect with me although I understood he was busy. On Sunday morning before he left to go home, he said to me that he wishes he woke up beside me to which I said ‘don't say things like that' and also said we should try and plan a weekend away to which I said ‘he can spearhead that'. I was a bit frustrated as I feel he often says things like this but his actions don't reflect his words. In reflection, I realize it wasn't the loving things to say. The next day (this past Monday) he sent me this text ‘Thank You for the weekend. I need some Me time please. I am away until Sunday with some family. I would appreciate a week. Nothing to worry about, just need space to rejuvenate. Thank You.' I respectfully replied ‘okay, I understand. I will miss you and I Love You no matter what. Take as much time and space as you need. Enjoy spending time with your family in nature.' I haven't been in any sort or contact since, tomorrow marks one week and I'm feeling really anxious as I am worried about how he feels and I really Love him and just want to communicate that to him.
