I know this is going to seem minor compared to what some other people are going through. I don't know where to start so I am just going to go.
I have been seeing a guy since this past November. We started going out to lunch and now it has turned into dinner dates. He has not given me a reason not to trust him or want him. He pulls my chair out, he puts my coat on me, covered me with the umbrella, pays for EVERYTHING, opened the car door, and when I am with him its like I am the only person on earth that matters at that moment.
So then why am I scared to death that he is going to hurt me? My last ex undoubtly hurt me worse than I realized because this new guy has been WONDERFUL. He is everything I have ever wanted and I can see myself with him. What is the problem you may ask? Well, he is moving extremely slow. We have not even kissed yet. I know he has a past that may be causing himi to go slow and be somewhat scared himself.
Let me give you a bit of background on new guy. He is VERY busy with work and he and I speak almost everyday with work stuff but we do not work for the same company. He has only taken one girl home to his parents and very careful who he lets in his life.
There is a bit of an age difference. 12 years. But we had so much in common and we want so many of the same things out of life. It's like deep down I know I am supposed to be with him but it's like he is going so slow I am scared I am just going to get hurt.
But then I know he has to be interested because this week I was flying/traveling for work and he called me before and after my flight just to check on me and checked on me one other night this week. He even called me during the day to just share part of his day with me. He also gave me a link of his best friend's webpage that has his bf's little girl on it. She just turned one and my guy is very close to that family.
So am I just worrying over nothing? Does he like me and why would he be moving so slowly?
I hope this makes sense. My mind has been jumbled most of the weekend. Any advice or response would be great!
