Dating 3 months he said im smothering him
So let’s look at some differences between smothering and love. You may feel like you’re showing love, but if you’re being motivated by your own insecurity about the relationship or your own fears about losing this person, then you’re probably more in the smothering camp. When you love, you’re willing to do whatever is best for the person you care for, even if that means you don’t get exactly what you want, exactly when you want it. When you smother, you constantly ask about the future, insisting on specific answers and results.
You also demand attention or reassurance from the other person, requiring repeated statements of proof of their commitment level or feelings for you. When you love, you enjoy the present, allowing the other person and the relationship to progress at a comfortable pace.
Again, sometimes the best way to show your love is to respect the other’s wishes and allow the relationship to grow and develop more gradually. It calls too often or sends too many text messages.
There's this guy that I'm interested in and I sometimes think that he's just as interested in me.
I will admit that I can be a little clingy in relationships but he is the one who asked me to move in with him and now he's saying I'm smothering him. I really love him and I don't want to break up with him?
The date was actually really great – I was definitely into him and he showed every indication of being into me (the way he looked at me, the things he said, etc.) At one point, he mentioned that he’s really stressed right now because he just broke up with his girlfriend of 10 months a couple weeks ago.
I’ve tried bringing it up and when I do he almost makes me feel guilty about it and says things like ‘what we have is so special, why do we have to label it?
Our relationship is starting to suffer now because even though I say I’m fine with how things are, deep down this is really bothering me and I feel really hurt by the fact that even though I am his ‘girlfriend,’ he won’t acknowledge me in that way.
First, you mentioned that he was very stressed after having broken up his relationship of 10 months a couple of weeks ago.
You followed that up with, “I was confused because I thought he really liked me.” Maybe I’m missing something here, but his recent break up with his girlfriend has nothing to do with whether or not he likes you.
From the beginning of this he’s texted me almost immediately and held conversations.
Now it’s been two days and I’ve heard nothing from him.
