He doesn't understand the concept of breathing room or time off. He's totally not getting it. The more we discuss it the worse and more tiresome it gets. I'm tired of dealing with this. It's not healthy anymore.
I thought this was the kind of guy I wanted. I wanted to be adored and made to feel special. But I guess somewhere along the way I started to adore myself and treat myself like I was special. And so all of a sudden the "dream guy" I wanted makes me feel smothered.
I still feel like I can't breathe. And the more I ask him to back off the more scared he gets. And the more scared he gets the tighter he holds on. I can't make him understand what I need and even if I could it's not in his nature to be anything less than totally 100% focused on person he's dating.
This is so doomed.
