Some of us have had major misfortunes, some of us mostly minor ones. If you’re really interested in him and you’d like things to work out, I would say your best bet is to: 1) listen to him when he wants to talk about it, 2) be receptive to what he’s saying, but don’t judge it, 3) don’t take any of it personally, 4) don’t interpret it as some kind of hidden message, like it means something about you or him or how he’ll be in your relationship, 5) DON’T even think about trying to solve his problem.
Once he pronounces you to be in perfect health, you insist on a second opinion. Falling backwards in your friend’s arms and expecting her to catch you? You are permanently on the verge of exploding with all the things you keep bottled up.
All of his former girlfriends have cheated on him which has caused him to be very closed off and wary of relationships.
I really think we have something real here but I don’t wanna waste my time with a guy who will always be too afraid to commit.
In fact, your phone has a passcode, self-locks after three seconds and important notes and emails are written in a code that you invented and memorized, so there’s no recorded evidence. You will never eat a chocolate chip cookie, or a raisin one, because you’re so scared of getting the wrong one. When your mom mentions she likes your new friend, you get super jealous. Except, of course, you wouldn’t trust that the recruiter was for real.
You are satisfied with most makeup products you buy because you never expected them to do what they said in the first place. You would never because you can’t trust anyone’s judgment other than your own.
