So, I’ve been reading posts like these for a long time because I can relate to this situation. I’m a little skeptical and paranoid to post my own stuff for fear that my T will see it...but I’m sure that won’t be the case. Anyway, I’ve been going to my T for about 8 months now and we seem to have a good therapeutic relationship. He is kind, empathic, and understanding. It’s safe to say I’ve had a “crush” on him all along…but that’s no surprise to me…I actually anticipated that it would happen that way. I’m just curious to know how he feels about me. I think he is attracted to me…I am a 24 year old, fairly attractive female. I am also very successful in my professional life. So, the issue at hand here is…I had a GREAT session with him last time. I told him that I had a dream about him. I’ve dreamt about him once before and also told him about that one. This dream was fairly short and I didn’t remember much. All I remember is that he and I were riding in the backseat of a van and somebody else was the driver. Among other questions about the dream, my T jokingly asked me, “Where were we going?” I told him I didn’t remember – because I really don’t remember where. And he replied with a smirk on his face, “Ohh, I was thinking a tropical island somewhere together.” I said, “That would be nice.” We both laughed a lot and blushed a little. However, in the moments after that was said, I got these amazing feelings inside…definitely love feelings. And he was showing hints that he enjoyed it as well. This isn’t the only time that we’ve experienced moments like this…but this was my favorite one. I keep thinking about it. He once offered me his personal cell phone number and said I could call or text him whenever I wanted. (Theres a lot of background that goes into that story, but still) He also makes me laugh all the time…and he says he likes that I laugh at his jokes. I respect my T and he is very professional and would not cross any boundaries, nor would I… but I do look forward to our sessions and I could see how it could become torturous for me because I like him so much.
I just wanted to see if I could get any thoughts or opinions on this matter. Anything you could say would be greatly appreciated.
