Why am I Feeling So Emotionally Vulnerable Since I Met The Man of My Dreams?
I am not crazy about him, but I do think he is right guy and I like him a lot. I have always had a happy childhood and a happy life with no major problems. Even though I do like a lot, I don't speak very openly to him, though I do want to talk to him. He thinks I am very shy, but I am not with my friends and family. I am so content with him, but don't know how to show this to him. What do I do?
Next time you see him bring him a little gift - something personal. In your conversation share something personal about yourself. Take him into your confidence. Become a little more tactile with him, than you would with a friend.
As your intimacy grows your fear of abandonment will decrease - if you persist and become truly trusting and intimate, your fear of abandonment may even be healed through your relationship with this man.
