Trust me, I cringed at every question. BUT, I'm glad I did it finally. This is standard. This isn't me being 'too sensitive' or 'not empathetic enough' or 'not supportive enough'.
I'm sorry that you have to live with the constant workarounds and doubt like that. You're right. Such a strain, and a drain. And yeah, this is not remotely the first relationship I've had like this. Luckily I kept most of mine short. But, seriously, I dated SO many nice guys in college, why wasn't I smart enough to stick with one of them instead of ending up with my current and my ex? 27 days ago
