A slight update:
My therapist (I really hate that word), Ben, asked me if I was okay with being treated like I wasn’t lady and just generally like shit by the boy I’ve been seeing since January. I told him the way he treats me isn’t ideal but I’ve come to terms with it.
He told me, and so has everyone else that is close to me, that they think I should dump his ass (even though I’ve repetitively said our situation isn’t exclusive) and that they despise him in some way.
I’m trying to figure out what keeps me coming back to him. I think it’s his sense of humor and he always keeps me on my toes. We never run out of things to talk about and have millions of inside jokes. BUT he always avoids situations that require him to console me or to be serious. I can tell he’s scared. He’s graduating and knows I’m transferring so he doesn’t want things to get serious, but it’s kind of late for that. Whenever he’s around me and I’m chatting with other guys, he gets pretty intrusive and disrupts our conversation or tries to pull the guy away from me.
Welp, soon I’ll have to figure things out, once the summertime comes.
