However, I am confused as he has been nothing but sweet to me.
He treats me like a lady, makes me feel special when we've gone out, an amazing kisser and texts me everyday with sweet nothings. The two times we went out, I met him at a bar (I did the driving).
I was drawn to what psychotherapist, Ken Page terms as “attractions of deprivation” – when we are drawn to people who embody the worst emotional characteristics of our parents.
He has made some mentions of cuddling at home and joked about being naked (I'm not ready for sex).
Although, he did tell me he's going to take me out for dinner next week which I like.
Instead of relying on beauty as my source of empowerment, I focused on basing my empowerment on my intelligence, successes, values, contributions to the world and how I helped others. In fact, some people regardless of their age, will never really grow up.
You can switch the genders in this post and most points would likely still apply.
" In other words, why does someone who has the potential to be an incredible catch sabotage herself with such poor choices?
