Keeping me on my toes....
I am living with my boyfriend. Pretty new relationship been with him for 4 months only. I get the feeling that he is wrestling with himself to open up to me emotionally. He has been through a lot. Wife died in an automobile accident, prior to that they were getting a divorce. ( She was on drugs and cheating ) Next live in girlfriend of his for 5 years had breast cancer. He took care of her and she got better..only to leave him and get married to someone else.... A year later she passed away.
Now..I get the feeling that I am dealing with someone that is petrified to get hurt again. Though we cannot avoid this in life..sometimes we tend to put up a facade for our own sakes...
My question is.... He does not seemed to want to open up to me emotionally. One minute he is hot the next he becomes distant and unapprochable.
These are my thoughts...I need to give him time and when he is ready then things will get better. In the meantime...I feel that this may become a pattern in our relationship if I do not do something about this now. Anything I say or do will not hold much unless he is willing to change or cooperate so...I am being patient and biding my time.
Am I doing this the constructive way or not...?
